The Good : Costs less than Apple Watch Series 3. Has Apple Pay, heart rate functions, and runs all the same apps. Similar design and uses same bands, too.
The Bad : Lacks swim-ready water resistance and onboard GPS found in Series 3 models. Only comes in aluminum. Doesn't have the Wi-Fi music streaming and Radio app of Series 3 models.
The Bottom Line: If you're not a runner or a swimmer, the entry-level Apple Watch has most of what you'll need at a more affordable price.
