The Apple Watch series 4, us Apple's best products of 2018 to me. I will always be brutally honest, and this device is awesome. Mine never messes up (unlike my Max, iPad and AirPods) it doesn't lag, or need to be rebooted, it just works and works well. I give Apple total props on the Apple Watch, but step out up with the iPhones Apple...big time. My ECG showed no signs of AFib either, hopefully it's accurate.

This is the true innovation unlike other watches which are purely garbage and disposable and cheap.

Shut up, and stop trolling. That's literally all you do here.

Yup. Fandroids cry about how much Apple copies or doesn’t innovate, but forget about how there is nothing remotely close to the Apple Watch, chunky EarPod imitations, and whatever else they do.

It’s like a real life Pip-Boy, but better.

Got mine setup. Great to know the condition of your heart. Well worth the money for this watch.
