  • - It's been six weeks since I upgraded

  • to the Apple Watch Series 4, so I figured

  • it was time for a review to let

  • you know what I think, what I like,

  • and what I don't like about this watch.

  • Now, I've been wearing the Apple Watch Series 4 every day

  • for the past six weeks, so to cut

  • this review real short, and just jump straight

  • to the spoiler alert ending, I love it,

  • absolutely recommend it, 10 out of 10,

  • all the way, for sure.

  • But here are some explanation as to why I feel that way.

  • So I'll give you some of the good and some of the bad.

  • There are only a couple of things

  • I don't like about this watch,

  • and honestly, I feel like they're

  • either things that aren't the watch's fault,

  • or they're carryover complaints

  • that I also had with the original.

  • I upgraded from the original Apple Watch,

  • which was released in 2015.

  • Now, this watch is actually not called the Series 1,

  • it doesn't have an official name,

  • it's just sort of the original Apple Watch.

  • A lot of people call it the Series 0.

  • In 2016, its processor was updated,

  • and it was called the Series 1,

  • and then they also released the Series 2,

  • and then in 2017, they released the Series 3,

  • so there's a little bit of confusion, there,

  • but this is the original Apple Watch.

  • So I really only have three major complaints

  • with the Series 4, and the first one,

  • which is actually really annoying me,

  • is the lack of ECG usability.

  • So when the Series 4 was announced,

  • there was a big deal that it has a electrocardiogram

  • to monitor your heart rate in a super active way,

  • and Apple just hasn't activated that feature, yet.

  • I'm really excited about that.

  • I think that's gonna be a really groundbreaking feature,

  • but for whatever reason, I dunno

  • if it's regulations, or what, as

  • of November 2018, that feature has

  • not been activated, and that's

  • one of the key headlining features of this watch.

  • The next complaint that I have

  • about the watch is actually with the LTE connectivity.

  • So as much as I would like to feel

  • that I don't need my phone as long

  • as I have my watch, the coverage

  • just isn't that reliable.

  • But to be fair, I also have AT&T,

  • and where I live, at least, AT&T's coverage is terrible.

  • So I feel like that might not be the watch's fault,

  • I feel like that's more the carrier's fault.

  • And then finally, the last complaint

  • I have about this watch, which is

  • definitely a carryover complaint

  • from the original, and honestly,

  • it's a carryover complaint from the iPhone 4S, is Siri.

  • I don't understand how Apple can have Siri

  • in its products since 2011.

  • It's 2018, and Siri is just bad.

  • Siri on the Series 4 does work better

  • than on the original Apple Watch,

  • but it's still not super reliable.

  • If you push in the crown and ask Siri

  • to do something, it's usually the most reliable.

  • Remind me to make an awesome video at 5:00 p.m.

  • - [Siri] Here's your reminder.

  • - But the whole raise to talk,

  • and then tell Siri to do stuff,

  • only works a fraction of the time.

  • There's still a lot of hang on a second,

  • and I'll tap you when I'm ready,

  • and things like that, where it would

  • just be quicker to not use Siri at all.

  • Sometimes Siri is great, a lot

  • of times Siri is useless, and the fact

  • that it's so unreliable means that

  • it's definitely not something you can count on,

  • which is unfortunate, because a lot

  • of the things that it should be able

  • to do would actually be really,

  • really cool, and really, really helpful.

  • But those are really my only complaints with the watch.

  • Everything else I absolutely love,

  • and I'm super impressed by, so to

  • just kinda highlight some of the main features

  • that I've really been impressed with,

  • the first, of course, is the speed.

  • This watch is super fast.

  • I think it's been benchmarked at

  • around the speed of an iPhone from a few generations ago.

  • Apps load super quickly, you can switch

  • between apps really easily, it

  • really just responds the same way

  • you would expect a modern phone to,

  • where it's just all kinda instant and fast, and I love that.

  • That's a huge difference from the original Apple Watch,

  • which was getting almost unusably slow for me.

  • The second benefit that I've noticed,

  • that I love, is the battery life.

  • The battery life on this thing is insane.

  • I've never gotten into Power Reserve mode,

  • even when I've worn it for 18 to 20 hours at a time.

  • It just doesn't die.

  • I think the longest I've worn it was

  • from 5:00 a.m. to midnight.

  • It was just a super busy day, I was using the watch

  • constantly, and it was still down

  • only at 50% by the end of the day, or around 50%.

  • Just for an example, right now,

  • I'm recording this at about 4:30 in the afternoon,

  • been wearing the watch since 5:30 in the morning,

  • I've done a full day of work, and the battery's at 76%.

  • So the battery on this thing just lasts forever.

  • I love it.

  • Even if you forget to charge it one night,

  • you don't need to worry about it.

  • You're good to go, and that, I think, is awesome.

  • Another big plus to this is the durability.

  • It's exactly what I expected coming

  • from a stainless steel original.

  • I got the stainless steel Series 4,

  • and the reason that I'd really prefer the stainless steel is

  • mainly because of the sapphire crystal display.

  • It's super touch.

  • The only the thing that's supposed

  • to be able to scratch it is a diamond.

  • I don't really walk around with a lot of diamonds,

  • so it's usually not an issue for me.

  • It can become cracked or chipped

  • if it hits something really hard,

  • so you do kinda need to watch out for that,

  • but as far as scratches go, there's no need

  • for a screen protector or anything like that

  • on the sapphire crystal display.

  • And then the stainless steel body

  • does get scratches and scuffs.

  • Here's basically what it looks like after 45 days.

  • I have not babied this thing.

  • I wear it to work everyday.

  • I wear it to the gym.

  • I work in the yard with it.

  • I work on projects with it.

  • I wear it all the time.

  • I don't wanna say I don't take care of it,

  • but I definitely don't go out of my way to baby it.

  • I use it like the watch that it's supposed to be used as.

  • Fortunately, with the silver stainless steel Apple Watch,

  • it's really easy to just polish

  • out the scratches and scuffs,

  • and make the watch look brand-new again.

  • I actually made a video on how to do that.

  • I haven't done that yet with this watch,

  • because I wanted to be able to share

  • with you what it looked like after six weeks of use.

  • But I usually end up doing it

  • about every two or three months.

  • And then the last big thing that

  • I really love about this watch is the display.

  • This is the 44 millimeter version.

  • I have the 42 millimeter original Apple Watch,

  • so this is the biggest Apple Watch.

  • And the one nearest my hand is the Series 4,

  • 44 millimeter Apple Watch, and the

  • other one is the original Apple Watch,

  • the 42 millimeter version.

  • So they're really not that different in size.

  • The Series 4 is a little bit bigger,

  • but it really doesn't make a difference in everyday use.

  • And in terms of thickness, they're

  • really not that different from one another, either.

  • So I didn't really notice a huge difference going
