    I am looking at getting the new Apple Watch 4 in the 44mm Stainless and wondered if anyone out there has one and how they liked it?

    I am also curious about the updated heart monitor? Now that I am a heart patient this is an important feature to me. I appreciate any feedback please.

    What are you specifically looking for? Heart rate monitor is available in all models and hence the question.

    I love mine! I previously had S3 aluminum and wanted to try out SS with S4. Absolutely love it. The only thing I don’t like is that it comes with cellular by default. I would have been happier if there was a SS GPS only model. SS fits my attire very well and don’t feel like I am wearing a sports watch anymore!

    I ❤️❤️❤️ my stainless steel s4. I still have a 1st gen 38 ss. If you are talking about the ecg feature the app isn’t available yet.

    Been using stainless steel since the original Apple Watch, including Series 2 and 3 LTE, all 42mm.

    Now Series 4 also the same, stainless steel all the way!

    Same, I really wanted to do SS for my first time buying a Watch this year but I couldn't justify an extra 100 (based on the aluminum GPS vs GPS+LTE) plus the extra couple hundred on top for SS over the base aluminum GPS model. I'd literally be paying $100 for a feature I won't turn on most likely. I don't fit the use cases for an LTE model such as running/etc and wanting to leave the phone at home while doing things.

    Got mine (gold finish) at the beginning of October, and I love it! Massive upgrade from the series “0” aluminum model I had. Screen is amazingly responsive, clarity is fantastic. I’m afraid I cant help you with the heart monitor aspect, though.

    Thanks for the information everyone, I am going to look at getting the Stainless steel version for myself. I have been procrastinating long enough.

    I went back to the SS version for the s4. The s3 was my only aluminum daily wear Watch. Glad I am back to the SS.

    The glass alone on the screen is worth the extra money.

    My new SS AW4 has been on backorder for a month. I love my SS AW3, which will be available soon (I hope).

    I can pay an extra $100 to get one with a Milanese Loop band immediately. I already have a Milanese Loop however, and would have to sell the old one with my stainless AW3 I guess. Or I wait for a few weeks.

    I got the Aluminum S4 space grey. It felt like a toy for me because of the weight. I am used to a Tag. So, I returned it and got myself the SS version for the weight, quality and the sapphire glass and added non-apple link bracelet which added to the weight. I am happy the way it looks and the weight.

    I wear my watch everyday and all day. It's a phone, a watch, a communicator, health tracker, work out companion, iPod, fashion piece, alarm, calendar, weather and news, and sleep tracker. I got the SS version because of those reasons.I think the aluminum is a good watch, its just not for me.

    I has a series 2 SS and I figured a lot if not most good true with the series 4. It looks better has a heft to it but if you’re going to the gym for me the aluminum is much better which is why I got a series 4 Nike plus model.

    Eh depends. The ss sapphire screen is better against scratches but glass is better in terms of durability if you’re very active. Sapphire will break easier
