    Best Buy has them for $100 off. Since I have 2 iPhones I got two Sports for just $550. I'm sure they an be found cheaper than $300/42mm and $250/38mm but I'm satisfied.

    After going on about me missing my MS Band 2 and dealing with their dead battery issues, I picked up an Apple Watch last week. I figured that even if they come out soon with v2, I'd be happy with this because my issues are not hardware, but software related. Plus, at 100 off, I figured that when v2 comes out, it will be some time before it is the same price.

    I wish it had built-in sleep tracking and better weightlifting workout tracking, but for notifications and messages, I really like it. Plus, it's so much more comfortable than anything else I have tried (Band 1, Band 2, and both Garmin and Polar devices).

    I could not agree with you more on the notifications for AW. It killed the experience for me.

    I don't think I'd wait - I've had mine since April 2015, and I think I'd get a new one this year if it's compelling enough. You can always sell your first gen watch later.

    I have been reading lots about reasons for/against getting the Watch and have just decided to go for it.
    As there are no guarantees there will be a new version in September and also even if there is, the software updates will come up for some time to come. I also am really looking forward to having a great piece of Apple tech on my wrist!

    I'm just awaiting WatchOS 2.2 which is coming soon, probably next week.

    If you can wait until this fall, I would wait. A FaceTime camera would be very nice, not to mention it would be a very cool selfie camera. If it can slim down a little bit, that also would be nice. Those who bought one a year ago will get at least 1.5 years of use, which, to me, is worth it.

    The link you posted is for the watchOS - do you have a source to say the physical device won't be updated until 2017?

    I have SGS watch.. Have been using since Jan 1st with no screen protector or case and no scratches until I bought a cheap Chinese made leather strap from Amazon and it rubbed the color off slightly at point where you slide-in the adapter Its hardly unnoticeable but I go paranoid whenever I see it! Lol Click image for larger version.

    If you can wait then wait. So far there's no confirmed date when the Watch 2 will be out, speculated by 3rd quarter this year.

    It's official! No aw2 yet. Just new bands and a lower starting price. I wonder if the rest of the lines are price adjusted as well 🤔

    When I heard that, I kind of think that they are preparing themselves for a Watch 2 release, that's the only thing that a price drop could mean.

    If Apple would offer an upgrade plan for the watch ala the iPhone, I'd get one now. As it is I'll wait for the 2.

    I have a shot at getting a barely used AW sport (42) for $260 total. I've been reluctant to buy one, but this is pretty darn tempting.

    Or competing with competition from Fitbit with a lower price point. They didn't lower them all just the "entry level" Sport.

    Bummer! There are plenty of good deals out there. Keep an eye out for a good sale and you can probably get a brand new one for $250.

    Does anyone have any reliable articles on a 2016 iWatch 2? My wife and I are holding out right now, but if it's true that there will not be a new one, I'd rather not wait.

    The only person with "reliable" information about AW2 would have to be an employee of Apple or a supplier. I don't they're talking to the press.

    All speculation. There was thought we could see an update this past week. If you want it go ahead and get it. You'll always be waiting.
