    Either the Space Grey or the Space Black.
    The Gold SS is beautiful!

    The images I see of the Gold give it a more polished look but when I see it on the Apple site its more brushed and muted. What annoys me is I was looking at the Hermes edition but I see you can now get the band I want, but will it be shipping in a weeks time or delayed. So I am getting GPS/Cellular and may opt for a SS and get the Hermes band separately. Apple used to have a way to see the bands with your watch on their site but that seems to be gone, and maybe it has been for sometime I just never needed it.

    40mm silver. I went with space gray last time not thinking about band compatibility. I just got the space gray to match my other Apple products (space gray iPad, matte black iPhone 7+ at the time). It turned out that the bands I really liked (mostly sport loops) would look better with the silver. I'm happy that now the GPS models will come with sport loops! IIRC the sport loops out of the box were only offered on the cellular models.

    I'm seriously debating SS or aluminum and can't decide. Well, I know I want SS/sapphire for the look & feel, but my wife is not feeling the price increase of $300 over aluminum. Yes I know it's technically only like $200 with equal features (LTE) but I wasn't planning on actually activating the LTE part and just wanted the materials. Sounds like I'm going to probably be doing either silver or SG aluminum instead with Apple Care and hope I don't scratch it up cause I'm NOT using protectors or cases on a watch.

    Trading in my S3 gold alum LTE for the S4 gold alum LTE. Just can’t justify the difference in the stainless version even though I think its gorgeous!

    Gold SS 44mm for me.

    So I realized the SS is going to be like 900 with AC and tax. I could really put that extra towards a trip I have coming in November. Also found a co-worker with a gold aluminum series 2 with no case or screen protector and is not scratched or anything so I think I'm going to save 350-400 and go with a 44mm space gray aluminum. I might still break down and get LTE for future use but wouldn't plan to activate it right away.

    Yeah I’m not sure that the 44 mm size will fit well because my wrist in only about 170 mm around. But I figured the larger screen is better for aging eyes.

    I hear you. But being female I felt the 44mm would overwhelm. Love new gadgets.

    I went Nike Space Gray cellular to replace my Series 3. Apple trade in for it was $225 so it's a nice little return to offset the price of the Series 4.

    I ordered a 44mm silver aluminum LTE. I got it with the Seashell Sport Loop, but I currently have the old Navy sport loop and will likely put my old band on the new watch.

    44mm Space Gray GPS. After going from 38 to 42mm I wasn’t about to downsize again.

    The 42mm looks a lot better on my small wrist than I initially thought, so I figured 44mm wouldn’t be much of a difference.

    One thing to consider if you’re on the fence is that thanks to the thinner bezels, the 40mm has more display area than the 42mm!

    I have the series 2 so maybe things have changed but I started with the stainless steel and switched to the aluminum. Definite weight difference on the wrist and with the stainless steel I hated the micro scratches that were too often and too obvious for me.

    I hope this helps.

    Yes, the notifications just get pushed through the BT connection between the phone and watch.

    Waiting closer to Xmas and get one for myself and my wife. Sell our Series 3. She is on the fence, but as we age I like the ECG, and the "I've fallen" emergency. That aside I like the larger face / edge-2-edge and the complication options that along with that.

    I think I will go with basically what I have now, but instead of 42mm it's now 44mm.

    Apple Watch Nike+ Series 4 (GPS + Cellular), 44mm Space Gray Aluminum Case with Black Nike Sport Loop

    But will get it at BestBuy w/o Tax ... not in a rush, plus I have the new iPhone Xs Max coming on Friday 9/21 - Space Gray 256GB.
