The Apple Watch is the most popular smartwatch by a considerable margin, and it’s not hard to see why. It’s the perfect companion to the ever popular iPhone, tethering your digital life to your wrist with a stylish twist.
Having an Apple Watch isn’t just like having an iPhone on your wrist – it’s so much more than that. You can do tons more than simply view your iPhone messages and notifications on the Apple Watch.
There’s health and fitness tracking, built-in GPS (depending on the model you buy) and a slick reel of apps to keep you more productive. Its watchOS operating system has evolved since launch, too, getting better with each version with additions like GymKit. There’s also nothing quite like paying for things with Apple Pay just by tapping your Apple Watch.

Which Apple Watch model to buy?
There are now several different Apple Watch models available. Series 1 is the first-gen model revamped with a new, faster processor, but isn’t water-resistant nor does it have GPS. The Series 2 is still widely available and first introduced built-in GPS and water-resistance. Finally, there’s the all-new Apple Watch 3 Series 3, which comes as both GPS or GPS + LTE models and has the latest processors inside.

Apple Watch size options
The Apple Watch is available in two sizes across all models: 38mm or 42mm. The 42mm model costs a little more than the smaller option.
Consider the size of your wrist and how large or small you’d like the watch to appear before making your choice of model. While traditional watches are measured horizontally, Apple measures its watches vertically. The smaller size has a 38mm height, while the larger sits at 42mm. In terms of function they’re identical but they do have different resolutions based on the size.
