MacVoices #17201: A MacJury Review of The Apple Watch Series 3

The MacJury convened to discuss their experiences with the Apple Watch Series 3, and how it is holding up against their expectations. The ability to use the Apple Watch as a dedicated phone and the costs associated with them, Siri having a voice, and the superior battery life are among the benefits of the newest model of the most popular watch in the world. Discussing how they use their Apple Watches, some of their favorite Watch apps, and what they want next are the panel of Steve SandeMike Schmitz, and host Chuck Joiner.
