    bought some 42mm stainless steel and 38mm sport thru switch's promo. It not limited to buy 1 take 1 guys. You can buy 1 watch for 50%off cash/straight charge cc payment, 30% off for 6mos installment. The 42mm stainless steel with Milanese was 39k, got it for Php19k+, then the 38mm aluminum sport for Php8k+

    By the way, I think they price this base on the old apple watch prices (for example, 38mm al silver is priced at 16,990. New price I think is 15,490 aw-s1) then B1T1 or just less 50% in some store. I was told that if you opt for just less 50%, it will still depends on the store and it will be a case to case basis since originally their promo is B1T1 and not 50% off. I can't recall which store but definitely it came from one of their stores. :)

    It was really a relief to find out the old bands are compatible with the Series 2. Now I'm looking forward to getting a stainless steel version of the Series 2 with just the sport band. At 34k, it ain't chump change but well worth the upgrades from the original version that I have specially now that it's waterproof. As for battery life, I won't mind charging every night which is what i've been doing anyway for several years now with all smartwatches I've owned (well, except for the Pebble)

    Is there any confirmed date of the Apple Watch Series 2 availability locally?
    I tried getting one in G.Hills..the 42mm Sport Apple Watch goes for 35k no way.
    I think I'm already matured enough to wait. Hahah!

    Hi guys, any tips on how to differentiate a series 1 from the original apple watch? Does the watch itself have any indicators?

    If you have the box, you should see this (SERIES 1/2 should be visible):

    If you have the Apple Watch out of the box, you should see this (SERIES 1/2 should be engraved @ the back):

    Good 'ol GH tiangge sellers... they're never shy to overprice for those really eager (and with money to burn) early adopters hehe

    Still no news on availability from APRs but at least those units trickling in and ending up in places like GH is a good sign that APRs aren't that far behind

    Not sure if this was a response to my query. I did research on the difference but I wanted to check if there were any physical indications. Been thinking of getting a Series 1 watch and didn't want to end up buying the original. :) thanks for the link.

    Perhaps at the same time iPhone 7/7+ and Airpods get to the Philippines, between late October to mid-November

    Nike edition Apple watch is kinda dope.
    After seeing the hands on videos and the special complications.
    I'll wait for it.
    And it comes with the Black box.
