    it looks like SE is best for PH as ECG is not really activated yet.

    I agree! unfortunately, there's no always-on display for the SE. Could've been a gamechanger even though it is a battery hog.

    Mm...the Watch SE perfectly dovetails Apple's new Family Setup, enabling parents to stay connect with their children even without an iPhone (for the children) using just one telco account. Hopefully, our local telcos will finally support the cellular model of the Watch and offer this.

    yes this is another thing in PH, AW do not support Cellular model (for years now), and this ECG feature (referring to standard support, not the workaround).

    I bought one the other day at PMC Trinoma. Decided for the SE 44mm Nike model instead of the regular Series 6 since ECG is practically non-existent in the PH and blood oxygen monitoring isn't something I need. I can't justify paying the extra 7k just for always-on display and features that I won't be able to use anyway. Yung 7k na yun pambili nalang ng extra watch bands or hell konti nalang, pang Apple Pencil 2 na haha. Came from a Galaxy Watch (I also turn off always-on while I was using it) so it's taking me some time to get used to the usability but yeah overall, goods naman siya.

    I hope our local batch of watch se units don't have the same issue as those in korea. I have the same sentiment as you, ECG is a waste without our govt agency approval. Looking to get the se to give as gifts for the family.

    I got my Apple Watch SE Nike Edition yesterday. I ordered October 7, got it October 21 -- just 2 weeks.
    First time ko nag order sa Apple Store for 18K -- retail sa PMC is @ 19K.
    Kaya din I opted for the SE kasi di naman magamit yung ECG dito sa PH, and I don't need AOD and blood oximeter.

    @jayparalejas, yeah I saw that sa reddit but mostly 40mm variants yung may issue. Here's to hoping wala nga issue dito.

    I also got the Protect Plus insurance from PMC which is kind of like AppleCare+ na rin for the watch. Hindi na masama kung sakaling mabasagan ka ng relo, you'll only pay 20% of the device SRP to have it replaced no questions asked hahaha

    Ordered mine also from the Apple Store ph. From “Preparing to Ship” how long will it take for the item to be actually “Shipped”? And by the time you received it?

    +1 on this. What was the estimated time of delivery when you ordered yours? Tried ordering the series 6 just now with the braided band and estimated delivery date is Jan 18, 2021!!!!!!:(

    I ordered a AW Nike Series 6 last Oct 10... delivery date was slated at Nov 5, 2020 and I was surprised when the package arrived last Thursday (10/22) , 2 weeks ahead of the suggested delivery date.



    Expect your package to arrive at your doorstep any day now.

    Im planning to purchase 1, ibibigay ko sana as a gift. I need it before Nov 30. I tried checking out and website says delivery is on Dec 11-18. Is that true? Did you guys get yours early? Kasi if thats the case, hindi aabot :( Pero indicated sa shipping times nila na delivery is 3-4 weeks. Yung ETA lang is diff sa 3-4 weeks na nakalagay sa website.
