Counterfeit Product Received
I received a counterfeit Apple watch. There is not Apple Logo or branding on the packaging materials. Additionally it had no user manual. The packaging also does not match the real Apple Watch packaging. Please review the attached photos, if you received an item matching this, then you also received a counterfeit product.
EDIT: I have now attached additional photos along side a real apple watch package (bought a real one at Best Buy) In the 5th photo you can see the correct Apple Logo embossing on the top of the box, in the 6th photo you can see the real apple labeling on the smaller of the two boxes, and in the last photo you can see the real Apple product on top of the counterfeit product and please notice it at least says Apple on the real one.
Apple 38mm Smartwatch - Space Gray Aluminum Case/Black Sport Band
The watch crystal is very fragile and shatters easily UPDATE: BUT APPLE REPLACED WATCH.
The watch crystal is very fragile and shatters easily. A search online shows that there are many people with this problem. The watches shatter from the curved edge inward. To me, this looks like a design/materials flaw. And then you need to have apple repair it and that costs almost as much as a new apple watch. I loved my watch for the few days that I had it before the crystal shattered. BUT I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND BUYING ONE UNTIL THE CRYSTAL PROBLEM IS DEALT WITH OR UNTIL THEY ARE WILLING TO REPAIR THE CRYSTAL FREE OF CHARGE.
Update: Apple handled the problem. They picked it up via FedEx, determined that it needed to be replaced, and sent me a new watch, all within 5 days. I am VERY HAPPY WITH THE SERVICE FROM APPLE.

Cool Gadget but .....
Cool Gadget but just that. It is too bulky for an everyday wearing watch. No way to adjust band and I don't think I want to spend the money at a Jewlers to adjust.
It does do what it says it does, the lack of instructions or good FAQ on the website making the learning curve a bit hard.
Charging is a bit challenging.
Making and receiving calls were not that clear.
I wanted to love this watch
I wanted to love this watch. Instead it caused me a lot of stress. The first watch I ordered the microphone only worked for 2 hours, then stopped. The replacement I received, the mic worked for 3 days, and oddly stripped the day I dropped the 1st one off for return. Without the microphone or use of Google assistant I am unable to use the majority of apps on the watch and it defeats the purpose of getting it. I am very disappointed over this whole thing.
Watch not responding to "ok google" gestures
Great looking watch. Same look and feel of a typical fossil watch. Responsive and the battery will last a full 24 hrs as along as you disable the "screen on always" or "when tilted" settings. Functions great until you give an "ok google" command. Watch is none responsive. Right now it appears the microphone is defective. Not sure quite yet whether I exchange for another or get a different watch.
