    I just ordered a 42mm Gold Aluminum Case with Pink Sand Sport Band, GPS + Cellular. I wasn't planning on getting the larger watch, but several people pointed out that the bigger screen would be better for my aging eyes!

    I also wasn't planning on getting one with cellular connectivity, but my husband thought the extra $10 a month was a no brainer.

    It's going to be here in 2-3 days. I can't wait!

    Congratulations on getting your new Watch, Annie, and I hope you enjoying using yours as much as I enjoy mine. As for the 42mm size being better on the eyes, that’s debatable. My original series Watch was a 42mm model, however, my Series 3 model is of the 38mm variety and the size difference is minimal at best in regard to viewing and maneuvering its display. At least it is for me.

    Congrats Annie!! I'm not one for gold for myself, but the gold/midnight blue combo looks amazing!!! Have you played on Apple's site where you can mix different watch/band combos? It's fun.

    I was just playing around with it. The new Denim Blue band looks good with the gold as well.

    Welcome to the club.....addiction.....whatever. :-)

    My wife and I got ours (LTE models) but initially just used them on wifi. Two weeks ago at dinner we decided to activate them on LTE and let me be the first to eat my words:

    I love being able to go to the store, run a few errands and even go on my evening and weekend walks and bike rides and leave my phone at home and just use my watch and airpods.

    Congrats on your purchase. Now the real spending begins.

    My bands (which, in total, cost more than the watch) are probably 80% from Amazon. I'd recommend Apple for some such as the link or milanese, but definitely go to Amazon for the sport (Moko) or nylon (Kartice) bands.

    I’ve bought a lot from Amazon (Moko brand), but they don’t seem to offer them much any more.

    Thanks for the suggestions about bands on Amazon!!!! I was wondering about the sizing they have for some of them... for example on one band I'm looking at, I can choose between: 42MM S/M or 42MM M/L .

    Your watch will come with one of each size of the band so you'll be able to figure out which you need at that point.

    I use the M/L, but my wrists aren't all that big, but those with smaller wrists may want to stick to the S/M so there's not a lot of bulk under the strap.

    The side with the pin on it is one size. The other side is the S/M or M/L. Apple bands come with both sizes when you buy them, but I guess since the Amazon bands are so much cheaper you have to specify.

    How exciting and congrats on your new Apple Watch! Doesn't matter when you joined the party but the fact that you did is what counts. You'll be amazed how this accessory allows you to put your phone down. A word of caution about buying watch bands...it's a hidden addiction especially if like to accessorize. Enjoy the new extension of your phone!!

    The larger size should also get you a bit better battery life. congrats on the new watch!

    I've never bought any bands from Amazon. I don't trust the 3rd party ones. My eyes are somehow always drawn to only the negative reviews.
