What to Consider Before Buying an Apple Watch – MaxBack

Why buy an Apple Watch?

An Apple Watch is an ideal investment for anyone who wants greater freedom and connectivity in their daily life (which is most of us, let’s be real). You can access many of the benefits and features that you love on your iPhone without actually having to carry the larger device around with you 24/7. If you choose an Apple Watch Series 3 or newer, you can also experience the freedom of cellular connectivity that allows you to make calls and send text messages even when your iPhone isn’t with you.

An Apple Watch is a terrific tech accessory for anyone, and that’s even more true for business professionals and health and fitness users. Businesspeople can stay linked to the office at all times with the connectivity of the Apple Watch. They can track their calls, calendar items, email alerts, instant messages and other important notifications when out of the office and away from their iPhones. Fitness enthusiasts will love the heart rate monitoring as well as the built-in workout tracking features and competition choices.

Which Apple Watch to buy?

Choosing the right Apple Watch for you is a matter of comparing features. While the older models — such as the Series 1 and Series 2 — have lower price points, they have also been surpassed technologically by more recent models. If you’re looking for an Apple Watch with a lower price point than the newest model without sacrificing most of the features, we recommend the Apple Watch Series 3. This is the first model to feature optional cellular connectivity as well as access to the watchOS 5 operating system. The very next model, Apple Watch Series 4, includes no major updates except for a larger screen.

Benefits of the Apple Watch Series 3

This is the first generation of Apple Watch that features innovative cellular connectivity. This means that you can make calls and text messages through the watch without needing to have your iPhone on hand. This gives the user outstanding freedom and mobility during their daily life.

The Apple Watch Series 3 is the first model to operate on watchOS 5, which offered significant updates to the software features on the device. One of these is a significant improvement in the heart rate monitoring feature designed to detect previously undiagnosed health conditions, including atrial fibrillation. Other updates include more accurate health and fitness tracking with a new competition mode, yoga mode and hiking mode. There are also new running features and an update that allows the watch to automatically detect your workouts, eliminating the need for you to manually start and stop them.

A new walkie-talkie mode was also introduced in watchOS 5 which allows Apple Watch users to instantly communicate by voice. Updates to Siri allow her to learn your habits and routines in order to better provide personalized notifications and alerts. Other updates include support for web links with mobile webpage viewing directly on the watch and a new podcast app.

  • S3 dual-core processor and W2 Apple wireless chips
    • This processor is 70 percent faster than the one in the Series 2

Why You Should Consider Buying Refurbished

The most obvious benefit of buying a refurbished Apple Watch is the reduced price of a used device. You can save up to 50 percent on the used devices available from MaxBack. Unlike buying used devices straight from the previous owner, our refurbished devices have been inspected by trained technicians and fully tested before they make their way to you.

If you still have misgivings about purchasing refurbished electronics, we also offer a 30-day test drive on all of our products. This risk-free trial period allows you to use a full month to decide whether or not the chosen product is the right one for you. If you do decide to keep the device, each one also comes with a 90-day warranty that covers labor and parts to fix any mechanical malfunctions that weren’t caused by accidents or normal wear and tear.
