The details

An Apple Watch does so much more than just track information likes your heart rate and steps throughout the day. The handy device allows you to answer calls, reply to texts and synchs to your favourite music, podcasts and more.

The swim-proof design allows you to track and measure workouts like running, walking and yoga while also keeping track of your sleep.

What’s more, if you’re looking to head out for a workout without bringing your phone, you can make emergency SOS calls from your Apple Watch should anything happen.

The Series 3 Apple Watch has earned a solid 4.7-star rating based on more than 1,300 customer reviews.

“It’s literally a small phone on your wrist,” one shopper wrote.

“I have my own personal assistant on my wrist,” another said, adding that they’re able to book appointments, set reminders and alarms while checking emails from their wrist.

“Love the display,” a shopper wrote.

Other shoppers have said that although there was a slight learning curve, there were plenty of functions to use to make this device a one-stop shop for all the information you could possibly need.

Despite the positive reviews, some shoppers complained about the “short” battery life. Many noted that they had to "charge it everyday" whereas some fitness trackers can go multiple days without needing to be recharged.

The multipurpose watch allows you to make calls and answer messages while keeping track of your health and fitness goals and encouraging movement throughout the day. However, if you're looking for something with a longer battery life, this might not be the best option for you.
