    I'm upgrading to Watch 2, just because my current Watch failed.

    Here a suggestion for Apple Watch 2.

    Why not use the bottom side for an "always on time" !

    You could look at the time politely in any circumstances without lifting your arm !

    I could do that already when the Watch first shipped, until an OS update. Just rotating my wrist <40 would activate the display. If you weren't looking at me you'd never see the movement. Eventually, probably due improve battery life, it now takes a little more rotation and/or faster rotation if not moving my arm. Disappointing.

    Even better battery life, though welcome, isn't a compelling reason for me to upgrade. Maaaaaybe GPS or an improved accelerometer so the Watch knows if I'm in a car or train or whatever and doesn't prompt me to stand up at 30/40/70mph.

    At this point a new style of Watch would get my attention. Not just thinner. Something that looked different, like say- a round Watch. I've got three Watches. Bill Gates might say they all do the same thing so- nobody needs more than one Apple Watch. But style appeals to me. A merely thinner version of what I already have, doesn't.

    Default What would it take to make you upgrade?

    I think I will buy the serie-1 with the new processor because I don't see the use of GPS since I always bring my iPhone everywhere anyway...
    And it's 100$ less than the serie-2 that will be put on the Airpods !
    My sport is biking so no need of 50M water protection.

    The only thing that would make me buy the serie-2 would be if the speaker is much louder than serie-1...

    To answer myself I think the speaker is no better than the Watch 0 because Apple would certainly said "and the speaker is 2 TIME louder !" At the Event

    So until someone test it I think it's still a weak speaker

    I agree that a camera doesn't make sense.

    I think it makes no sense whatsoever. And it's a nigh impossible task for Apple. Their phone cameras set the bar very high with each iteration. Other manufacturers catch up or maybe even pass Apple, until the next phone.

    There's no room for a decent camera in the Watch. So many people are complaining that it's already too big. Sell a substandard camera just to say "our Watch has a camera, too!" is not Apple's style. Then there's trying to may a decent UI for it. May as well make a wrist strap for the phone.
