Top Apple Watch

Cool, prestigious, feature-packed - that's the whole Apple Watch. We will tell you about the best offers of the brand and help you make the right choice.

Anyone who follows Apple's line of smartwatches would be happy to get the latest Series 4 model. and design, and the availability of the necessary functions, then a cheaper third-generation accessory may turn out to be the best solution.

We selected the best Apple smartwatches and compared them in everything from screen size, design and wearing comfort to technical nuances.

From an aesthetic point of view Apple Watch Series 4 looks the most attractive. The screen has increased by 30%, the frames around it have become thinner, more color solutions have appeared. Navigation is facilitated by the Digital Crown, which mimics the crown of a mechanical watch. For improved signal reception, the back of the watch is made of ceramic.

The hardware, of course, has grown wiser. The fourth generation of Apple Watch received a 64-bit dual-core S4 processor (its speed is twice that of S3 in Apple Watch Series 3). The watch has a second-generation optical heart rate sensor combined with an electrical sensor. Thanks to this, the watch is able to carry out advanced monitoring of cardiac activity, including ECG.

At the same time, Series 3 and Series 4 still have a lot in common. If you are not obsessed with the idea of ​​buying the most fancy model and are willing to spend a little time finding the best value for money, this article is for you.


First of all, you need to decide on the size (Series 3 and Series 4 are available in two versions) and whether you need cellular support in your watch.

The basic version of Apple Watch Series 4 with GPS costs from 30 thousand rubles, Series 3 is cheaper - 20 thousand. Modification of GPS + Cellular with built-in eSIM is more expensive, but it is not officially sold in Russia.

By selecting an ESIM option, you can fully use the services of a mobile operator through the clock, without a smartphone. If advanced fitness functions in hours are not as important as the presence of a cellular communication, it makes sense to look at Series 3 GPS + Cellular: they have everything you need, and they are cheaper than Series 4.

Those who have a smartphone with themselves, the clock with ESIM is unlikely to be needed. You will certainly suit a simpler version of Apple Watch with GPS.

Design is an equally important element of the accessory. And in this regard, too, there is plenty to choose from. The Apple Watch case is made of aluminum (more budget option), stainless steel or durable ceramics. Coloring set, straps - even more. The Apple Watch line contains exclusive designer developments from Nike and the French Hermès Fashion House.

Now that you know what criteria is most important, it is time to choose.
