Definitely still a relevant watch, updated it to WatchOS 6.X.X as soon as I got it. While it lacks cellular and many newer features (such as the screen on Watch Series 3 doesn't extend to the curved edge like the Series 4/5, and no native compass support), but for the price point you will still be satisfied with this Apple product!

Practical and affordable
I like the practicality of the watch. It has all the functions I need. I can send text messages, read and answer my phone from it. More than I bargained for. The activity tracking system is superb and the settings are super easy. Most importantly is waterproof, and needs to be charged once a day because the battery lasts all day. Great investment!
I highly recommend Apple watches!
A great watch if you're looking for a cheap way to get into an Apple watch. I started with the very first model when they were first released in 2015, and was immediately hooked. That 5 year old watch finally died. The face popped off and was hanging by a wire. I Gorilla glued it back on and got another 6 or 8 months out of it, then it came off for good. I replaced it with the latest Model 5, and wow, what a difference. The 5 has the ability to perform an actual 3 lead EKG just by activating the app and touching the dial with your fingertip! Then you can send the EKG results/graph to your doctor or whoever. Also fall detection which could be a lifesaver. If you take a fall, it asks if you're OK. If no response, it calls your emergency contact and can also be set to call 911 as well and tells them where you are based on your GPS! When I showed it to my heart doctor, he was amazed and now recommends them for all his heart patients. Along the way I've also had a 3 and a 4 (can you tell I like Apple products yet?). Right now you can get amazing deals on the 4 at Walmart, like a couple hundred bucks. But for another $100 you can get into a 5! The 4 has the same processor and tech as the 5, but no EKG. Also the newer version you get, the more "complications" (fancy word for functions) can be displayed on screen. The photo is of my 4, (bit blurry but that's phone not watch) and it's showing Day/date, time, calendar entries, watch battery percentage, local outdoor temperature, and heart rate. The red dot at top of screen is indicating I have unread messages. I'm sure everyone knows this, but for the watch to perform correctly, you need to have an iPhone as well. But I highly recommend the Apple watches and encourage you to buy the latest model you can. I still use my 4 with aluminum case for everyday use, and my 5 with polished stainless steel/gold case for dress use. Beautiful thing, and highly functional.
Apple Series 3 ð¥
No need for an upgrade
Works perfect! Apple has always been user/family friendly. The watch was a perfect and affordable generation to purchase. I asked a recent Apple store representative what is the big difference between newer generation and response was that the newer one had one or two apps that gen 3 didn't. All in all, gen 3 is best way to save money and functional.
Easily broken Apple Watch
Just over the 1 year mark of receiving the watch as a gift I woke up one morning to grab the watch I place on the charger each night to go on my morning run. I noticed it wasn't responding to my touch, I thought maybe my finger was wet or something. I then looked closely and notice a hairline crack on the face. I then noticed two more along the edges of the face. It worked just fine when I placed it on the charger the night before. I researched online to see if this was a known issue. And I actually did find there was a known issue for this series watch for the exact timeline that my watch was purchased. I made an appointment online through Apple to have an authorized store take a look at it. They denied replacing or repairing it because they said they noticed some small abrasions on one of the corners. They also said that the watches are very delicate, and easy to crack or damage. They said the cost to repair would be the same as just buying a new watch. This watch didn't last but a year. Any watch will have normal abrasions but it should hold up better than this Apple Watch did. Ill never buy another Apple Watch, it cost too much money to break so easily and have to keep buying them when they do break. And I would advise anybody to think twice about purchasing an Apple Watch.
