    I have simple wants and the always on screen is one of them. Now if only Apple could make the battery last at least three days I'm giving up wearing my mechanicals.

    hi, how were you able to reserve an apple watch 5 and have it for pick up in Causeway Bay? whenever I go online it says "delivery is Oct 4" and "store pickup not available at this time"

    If you get the Nike+ Edition, do you still get the watch faces that comes with the ordinary Apple Watch or you lose some of them? Are there any trade offs?

    The only difference really are the Nike watch faces and Nike watch bands, other than that it’s exactly the same as the regular Apple watch. So you don’t really lose anything.

    Nowadays, the Apple Watch doesn’t leave my wrist except when charging. I don’t anymore wear any of my wristwatches even if I don’t need to recharge any of them, Auto or mechanical wise. This Apple Watch is the culprit that spoiled my want for analog watches. Damn you!

    If series 4 will be on sale, will that be worth it than getting the series 5? This will be my first AW by the way.

    For all-day on feature I would recommend the 5. Other than that, the 4 will definitely do.

    Mm...if it is your first Watch, go for the Series 5. Go big or go home. Seriously, I do not see the utility of starting what I think will be a great experience with the Watch for you with last year's Watch....Series 5 incorporates changes from lessons that Apple learnt from the previous 5 gens starting with Series 0. No brainer.

    Series 4 or 5.....best damn smartwatches on the planet.....and it will only get better and more sophisticated in the years to come. Rumored? Biometric security to replace pin code. Camera. Blood pressure monitor. Blood glucose monitor and probably a native Sleep tracker app.

    My Series 0 still functions, ignoring some battlescars and I am thinking of upgrading my Series 4 to 5.

    Apple today announced it will discontinue the Apple Watch Series 4, but will continue to sell the widely-popular Series 3. https://amp.businessinsider.com/apple-watch-series-4-discontinued-series-5-vs-series-3-2019-9

    So this can change some buyers’ dynamics in the next few days (hours?) about getting the Series 5 or retaining the 4 (without continued support) or the 3 (no problem, amigo).

    I am using a 3 (so wrong thread here) because the jerk in me just dropped and cracked a 4. I’m getting a 5 though because it’s the best thing now. That’s the only consideration in play right now.

    Not enough differentiation between 4 and 5. The 3 is fast enough and cheap enough to produce that merits its price tag and continued sale. Unless they add computing-heavy features, the speed on these watches are enough to handle simple watch apps without being excruciatingly slow like the S0, S1 and S2.

    I still have the S0, exquisitely propped on the bedside table displaying time. That’s what it’s for anyway.
