    Love the silicone bands! Super comfortable But we're all different -- glad you found what works for you.

    That's why I installed a screen protector to prevent scratches in the long run :P

I do think the SGS looks real sharp, but I had my mind set on the SS when I went in and thought I'd save a few $ by going with the sport. But it wasn't what I wanted and I knew I had to change it while I was in the exchange period. There's medication for that sort of thing, so I'm told
    Hahaha!

    I'm happy to hear that you're enjoying your SS!

    The Space Black is gorgeous.

    I don't know what else can be improved in the next version of the Apple Watch, but right now I'm not clamoring for any improvements and will still enjoy mine even if a new version comes out in March. The only thing I would like to see in future versions is a 46 or 50mm watch size for people who like their watches on the larger side.
    It's good to hear that!

    I was planning to get the leather loop as well, still considering whether the price is worth it.

    I might wait until March and see what new bands they release.

    I have the Stainless version - even though I got the space gray sport, I preferred that and the more silvery style of the stainless as it seems compatible with more colors of the bands. Personally didn't prefer the look of the silver aluminum in the Sport.

    Agreed, I'm not a big fan of the silver aluminum.

    I'm actually not a fan of the sports series, hence bought SS. But the Edition series on the other hand, is plain ridiculously expensive!

    I'll be saving up for the Space Black SS next time around :P

    They are expensive! I'd rather get a $10k Rolex or Cartier watch.

    I'm waiting to see what Watch 2 has to offer.

    Very true, for that price I'd rather get my dream Rolex with lots of cash to spare.

    Same here.

    I might have to choose between the iPhone 7 Plus or the Watch 2 if they both come out this Fall.

    I just signed a 24 mths mobile plan for the 6s Plus a couple of mths back so will only have to wait for 7s Plus. So if Watch 2 is out this year, might jump on it depending if the upgrade if worth it.

    Now?
    Are you happy with what you would get from apple atm if you had to say, use it for 2 years? I find the activity tracker (helps me not get too fat, sleep++ even helps me sleep properly), notification centre (do i need to act on it or can i ignore it?), apps (authy on wrist for 2 factor, currency calculator on trip, weather reports) and changable bands to be enough for me atm. There are also novelety features such as take your phonecall on your watch (wich unless you are alone in quiet is bad idea) or put the call on hold while you ansfer on your phone (quite nice) and ability to use watch as viewfinder for iphone camera but I feel that besides tring them out few times they are not gonna entertain for long. Lifeline games are cool and so is Spy_Watch but thats about where cool games end IMHO. I'm betting on more watchfaces and better os features in the future, but atm, as it stands, this is okay. It's only competitor in my eyes is MS Band 2 and unless you are looking for more sports toy than watch you can't go wrong. In Estonia we don't have apple pay, nor do we have normal apps for mass transit to use on wrist so the uses are limited, so if previous stuff was not enough, see how it fares in your region for addional services.

    Future?
    For me, there is no question, that this watch is worth it's money (got black sports watch) and I don't want to wait because honestly I don't see how they can improve from here very much. Facetime camera would be awesome but I can't figure out where to put it (in the front for facetime video? I don't have the strenght to hold my hand infront on my mouth for over few minutes anyway, if we put it into edge, then it might be good for showing but not much else and there will be no swivel for shure). Battery life really isn't a problem. Sensors? Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Heart Rate (optical) are there, I would love to get altimeter (for stairs) and skin temperature sensors in there. If we go crazy then why not Ambient Light, UV, Barometer and Compass? I don't really have problem with watch being tethered to my iPhone so I don't care if it has builtin gps or not, aslong as they fix it in software - my iPhone should be able to share gps to ipad or apple watch.

    TLR
    Putting it together in other words I'm happy with my current watch and unless they add ****loads of new sensors onto it, waterproofing for swimming, making it bigger, adding battery life etc all in the same time I will skip the next apple watch and stay with what I have. Most of the issues seem to me in software not hardware. Unless you are not happy with what is being in offered, I would just go and buy.

    Amazon has a bunch Depending on where you live, if you have a mall nearby there could be a Zagg kiosk (or similar) that can sell you one and possibly install it.

    Space grey sports watch! It has a protector all the way around. I'm wondering if I should switch from whatever this plastic protector is to tempered glass but I was definitely worried that it wouldn't work well with force touch.

    Tempered glass would be nicer imo. It should work just fine with force touch

    Totally agree. I originally bought a Sport 42mm in April '15 and sold it in July '15 because the software and performance were not very compelling...and I quietly awaited an announcement for when/if an Apple Watch 2 would surface in early '16.

    So, I've been following blogs and this site ever since, gathering info for the software and hardware of the Watch 2 and OS 2.2. After the recent announcement that the Watch 2 wouldn't be until Sept '16 I figured since Amazon has some great prices on the 42mm Sport I would not wait for the Watch 2. The software is catching up to the hardware. So in a few days I'll be sporting a Gen 1 Sport and for the price? Perfect.

    Grats!

    I got mine the moment the rumors said that it won't launch in early 2016.
