    Mm....nope. The Watch is universal model. Only differentiators are: 42 vs.44 mm. case, LTE vs. GPS. Of course the variery in case materials and its price points. No country-specific differentiator except for ECG activation (no ECG for Japan).

    ^Why there is no ECG activation in Japan is beyond me. I can understand this country not included in the list but Japan? Although I figured this might be because, compared to HK or Ireland or even Romania, Apple products aren’t that hip in Japan, which boasts its own smart wearable tech in such brands as DSmart and WLPT.

    Mm...highly dependent on how fast Apple gets regulatory approval of the ecg from the Japanese gov.

    One year since ecg, only 29 countries have it.

    ^I don’t think they really need that in their Apple Watch’s. WLPT has a smart wearable watch with ECG monitoring, among others, which is a hit with the Japanese, and much cheaper than the AW.

    at the back of my mind, what i think lang that time is - anytime soon ECG will be activated in Japan considering how "techie" their country is.

    Ayun. i still dont have ECG.. why Japan.. why???? :'(

    Power Mac has dropped the price of the Series 4 to P20k (44mm). Looks tempting. I expect the 44mm Series 5 to be at the former price of the S4 (P27k?). You guys think the S5 is worth the extra cost? Thank you.

    Kamusta mga naka series 5 na? I'm planning to upgrade my series 4 just because of the always on display, lol. I know its minimal but important for me. I'm planning to get the Titanium Apple Watch Edition, form Gold Stainless Steel.

    I had the same plan, but when I tried on the demo of Ti Apple Watch edition at Apple Orchard, it had scuff marks already. This turned me off.

    Let me know if you're going to sell your gold stainless steel S4 :). Been eyeing that model for a long time. I wish Apple PH would bring in the stainless steel models again.
