    Know it's a bit self-indulgent but I just picked up an Apple Watch Series 1 space gray as well as a Series 2 stainless steel black. Don't need the GPS or waterproofing features of the Series 2 but love the look of the stainless steel black.

    My logical side (and wallet) says to pick one and return the other but thinking I'll keep the Series 1 for exercising/casual wear and the Series 2 for work and other events where the stainless steel is a classier look. Already loaded up on 3rd party watches from Amazon (Mifa black classic buckle band/V-Moro black leather cuff band/OULUOQI Milanese and black stainless steel bands/Valuebuy black nylon band) as well.

    Anyone else here own multiple watches? If so, what versions and what are your reasons/uses?

    Yeah I'm probably looking for more justifications to keep both! ;)

    I own numerous "watches", but only one "smart watch". Having said that, ever since I received my Watch, I've yet to wear any of my other watches.

    I wore a regular watch for a few days...while my Apple Watch was being repaired.

    Appreciate the replies.

    Should have been more specific - anyone own (or plan to own) multiple Apple Watches?

    I have a thought. Isvit possible to buy 2 Apple Watches and switch between the 2 under same account?

    Sine both will be logged into same iCloud account, can both watches be managed in a week?

    I do. I have:

    Apple Watch Series 2 Aluminum Gold
    Apple Watch Stainless Steel
    Apple Watch Sport Space Gray
    Apple Watch Sport Gold

    I got the Apple Watches in different styles for- fashion reasons. Not that I'm a fashion plate kind of guy, just that some occasions might call for a different look. So along with the different case colors and texture, I can swap out the bands to appropriately accessorize. Watches are the only form of jewelry I wear, and all are elegantly bling free.

    I got the Series 2 because I wanted a brighter screen and faster processor, and the GPS might be useful one day. Also, there was an option with a brown (Cocoa) band and I want one.

    As it turned out, I've yet to notice the speed improvement of the S2.. It may be faster in some respects but so far it hasn't revealed it. Outdoors I notice no increase in brightness. None indoors for that matter. I haven't done a side-by-side comparison yet. But since I need that to confirm any brightness increase, the 1000nit vs 450nit brightness is not significant.

    This leaves the GPS. I'm not a runner, so I don't have a primary need for it. When I get around to using it, I may think "Wow, this was the killer app!". Or not.

    My next Watch will either be a Series 1 Space Gray or a Nike (just because I like the look).

    I currently own an S0 space black stainless steel. I have an S2 Nike+ that will be here in "late October." My justification is that the Nike+ will be my running and swimming watch (looking forward to NOT carrying a phone when I run). The SS will be my dress watch. There will likely be many days where I wear both.

    Yes it is and I plan to do that as soon as my Nike+ arrives. Here's how:

    Use more than one Apple Watch with your iphone.

    Yes, I do this all the time. It's called Auto Switch and you turn it on in the Watch App on your phone. All your Watches are paired and the phone connects to whatever Watch is awake. It can only connect to one Watch at a time.

    I bought me second Watch before the Auto Switch feature was added to the OS (2.2?). I had to pair and unpair the Watches each time, and it was a pain, especially prior to S1/S2 upgrades. (I don't have an S1, just an S2.

    I have three  watches. I have the Series 0 Sport, Series 0 SS and now the Series 2 SS. All 42mm.

    The Sport is my test device that I initially install beta OS's on, the S0 SS is my secondary watch and I was thinking of using that to do things that might scratch the watch (yard work, etc) Since you can pair more than watch that should not be an issue. My s2 SS is my new daily driver.

    I ordered the base space grey with black band Series 2, but would definitely consider another depending on how much I like it.

    My only Apple Watch experience was way back with the initial watchOS. I have a feeling watchOS 3 is much, MUCH better, and with the improved hardware, should be solid.

    I actually just returned the Series 2 black stainless steel and am back to just the Series 1 space gray. Was surprised by how little of a difference there was in looks between the two watches...to me, the band I wear with the watch makes more of a difference in how it looks than the watch itself. I don't need the GPS and waterproofing features of the Series 2 anyways plus my wallet liked the decision to save close to $700 (watch and the $49 AppleCare).

    May opt for a Series 1 silver aluminum to have a different look but that means getting more 3rd party bands which has become my new addiction! Finding some great stuff on Amazon and also just got the modern build band from Nomad which looks so nice but that's a conversation for another thread.

    I thought it was just me who had multiple apple watches. I have a Hermes series 2, a sport gold series 2 and a original sport rose gold . I'm thinking about selling my rose gold sport. I find a difference in the speed and crispness of the screen with series 2. I have multiple other watches but only seem to wear my Apple watches.

    I feel ya. My mechs languish. A few of them need sunlight and they aren't getting it. They're all great looking watches, but utility and style have me putting on an Apple Watch every time.

    I own over 50 watches. It's a thing. 30 alone are Swatch going back to 1988ish.

    Only one  Watch though...so far. Heh.

    Lol. No way! I love my holey band. You can have the longer piece if you want but not the short one.

    Have you looked at the third party holey bands on amazon?

    FedEx delivered my Edition watch today (love FedEx, UPS sucks). I think this watch will end up being my most favorite of all three. I haven't tried any other bands yet on the Edition watch but I only have two besides the ones that came with the other watches. I'll be getting more bands soon.

    Anyone else here either have or are getting multiple watches?-20170325_113156.jpg

    Beauty, eh? Wow! You are money! The Edition Ceramic looks great with the white band. I don't know that it could look any better with another band. Seriously.

    To my eye, the Edition and Nike+ look great as is. The Rose Gold does need a different band, though.

    Congratulations, NG!

    I'm a bit jealous. I can't even bring myself to buy a SS watch, much less the Edition. Looks great. Hope you enjoy it.

    AW Series 2 SS SB 42mm
    AW Nike+ Space Gray/ Black Volt 42mm

    I have a series 2 SS SB my personal favorite out of all the AW. However I was eyeing the Nike+ as well for my workouts and other outdoor activities, since I was too reluctant to use my SS for that purpose. I also liked the unique and "exclusive only to Nike" watch faces. Lol. I was really bummed out, that they stopped offering the space gray/black volt combo. I only saw the black/anthracite and silver/ platinum combos online and in stores.

    I happened to be at my Apple Store yesterday and was absolutely thrilled to find a leftover Space Grey/Black Volt. Since I also had a $100 Apple gift card I pulled the trigger asap. Really stoked that I could find one in that combo.
