A TIKTOKER has exposed an Apple product on the market as a money pit for consumers.
This Apple product can’t even be improved with software.
“It’s probably the worst Apple product you can buy right now,” TikToker Kevin Hirschberg declared to his 540,000 followers.
Though the Apple Watch Series 3 has an attractive price of just $199 and was originally released to positive reviews, it’s a device that’s dead on arrival at your doorstep.
The Apple Watch Series 3 was released in 2017 and came with big upgrades.
It was the first Apple Watch that had a cellular connection, bringing Messages and calls to the Watch without the need for a boost from an iPhone.
But Apple Watch Series 3 has already peaked.
The Series 3 won’t run the new Apple Watch software, watchOS 9, which released a beta on June 22.
“Why is Apple still selling it then?” Hirschberg asked.
He theorized the old watch is “very cheap to manufacture” and would make the company a lot of money on high margin returns.
Hirschberg compared buying an Apple Watch Series 3 today to buying an iPhone 7.
Both devices sit just behind the cutoff line for the next generation of software coming to both the iPhone and Apple Watch this fall.
The Apple Watch Series 7 rolled out last year with a much larger screen than previous models – it’s 50% larger than the Series 3 watch face.
The total price can vary depending on what watchband you buy, but the device itself costs $399.
