    I don't know you guys but me to be honest I'll prefer Apple to make an Apple Watch every 2 or 3 years just to let users have the last piece of tech without having to change every time year or selling way to cheap because is an obsolete model very soon...I know is not the way this works but it will be super nice. What do you Think?

    I'm good either way. Apple makes a new phone every year, but I upgrade at two years or later. I'd do the same with Watches— upgrade when the feature set merits it.

    Unless Apple changes the form factor of the Watch, it doesn't seem to me that they could sustain upgrading the Watches every year for the unforeseeable future. Even then, I could seem them running out of marketable ideas.

    The Series 2 just doesn't seem to justify an upgrade for me from my original one. But if the upgrades are more significant this year, I'll upgrade most probably.

    Big gains in battery life would be great from my point of view. Right now I'm getting 1.5 days of use out of my Series 2... would be nice to go 3-4 days on a charge.

    Agreed. Having to charge only a couple times a week rather than every night.

    And an improvement in battery life is one feature that definitely wouldn't get me to upgrade. I'm in the habit of charging every night and I'd rather do that than charge on an irregular schedule. As long as the battery always gets me through the day (and it does), it meets my needs. The device that annoys me is my Fitbit because I usually don't notice it needs charging until it's too late.

    I've had that happen numerous times. Not a Fitbit user since the switch to Apple Watch, but know exactly what you're talking about!

    From macobserver.com:

    Apple Watch 3 Shipping in Fall, Switching to Glass-film Touch Surface

    The new touch surface sounds like more of a supplier change than an upgrade. The article also mentions sleep tracking and cellular data.

    I agree! For me an upgrade every two years would be great.....a true upgrade not a little small stuff here and there.

    The bigger news for Apple Watch fans is that new models will ship this fall. Rumors about Apple Watch Series 3 features are slim right now but do mention sleep tracking and cellular data.
    Ok, so new Watches shipping this fall is not a rumor? Says who? And I trust nothing to be accurate when the source is DigitTimes.

    So I'll just wait to see what happens, or at the least, a more credible source of rumors. Apple, surprise me.

    So you're waiting for something from Ming-Chi Kuo then?

    I still have the 1st gen. Restoring is god awful slow (when swapping to a new iPhone for example). Otherwise works great. Every watch OS has been a nice improvement. Didn't see the point of getting the gen 2. Was a fair investment just to get the first gen. The watch isn't something I want to update every year.

    But will be curious on gen 3. Hopefully space black stainless still available. Would be nice if it became a bit thinner. A slightly bigger screen would be ok too.

    He is one of the more credible sources, but I think his track record is still something like 60%. That's pretty good in the Rumor Game but still— it's speculation than fact.
