    So I just got Series 3 today and replaced my Series 0. The difference in fluidity is absolutely staggering. I didn’t feel like the Series 0 was unbearably slow or anything, even on watchOS 4, but the Series 3 makes it seem ancient in comparison. Like an iPhone 3GS against an iPhone 8. I haven’t activated LTE yet, just wanted to share my very first impression from switching. If you have a Series 0, the Series 3 is a serious upgrade.

    Nice! Now I’m curious to see the difference between the S2 / S3

    Nice I don’t have any of them. I got a Galaxy Gear S2 from when I still had a Note 5 but my Samsung days are over! I’m back to iPhone and sticking with it.

    Same here. I've got AWs and an S2. I've got a few days for mine to show up yet.

    [Speculation]Since I don't see a huge difference between S0 and S2 speed, I'm guessing the S3 will be noticeably faster than the S2.[/Speculation]

    I just watched a video on youtube (after read your post here) and yes, it very faster.
    Did you get the LTE version?
    The version WITHOUT LTE can make calls with the iPhone connected?

    I did get the LTE version, I just don’t have it activated yet. And yes, as long as any Apple Watch is connected to its iPhone it can make and receive calls.

    That’s good to hear!
    I’ve seen speed comparison videos and the Series 3 seemed very fast.

    I picked up my Series 3 with LTE and have made several calls using the watch. People have said that I sounded clearer than on the iPhone...both resting on my desk. Works great...although the volume could be a little louder.

    The speed of the watch is awesome!

    I was wondering if the newer Watch was noticeably faster than my current original series model. Thank you....🤣

    Just came from a zero to 3 yesterday and it’s not even close. The zero is like a turtle vs a cheetah compared to the 3 and Siri talk back is really awesome.

    About Siri… is she supposed to actually talk out loud? All I get are words on the screen.

    Maybe it’s a setting in the Watch app.

    I’ve looked and I can’t find Siri anywhere in the watch app on my phone. What am I missing??

    No idea, as I don’t have the series 3 yet.
    Hopefully someone who does help you out soon.

    I thought my AWs and S2 only need one tap as well, but it's been awhile since I used Mickey.

    There are a lot of times that I wish Siri would remain silent. One thing I like about Alexa is that she either responds with the action dictated or just says 'ok'. Often Siri seems a little chatty. I'd prefer Siri not to talk at all on the Watch. Hope that's optional.

    Day 2 Update/Impression: Wooooooow....battery life on Series 3 is so incredibly superior to Series 0 it’s unreal. 10 hours off the charger essentially and my S0 would be about 60% already, at least, and my S3 is at 90%.
