    I'm also jumping on the "first series works great" bandwagon.

    I'd recommend at least Series 1 for speed and stellar battery life. Series 0 is considerably slower

    I am still using my first gen. No problems at all. I bought my wife the latest and hers is ALOT faster. Also my battery is starting to drain a lot quicker through the day. So I guess it's time for me to upgrade.

    A lot faster? May I ask which Apple Watch OS you currently have on your Apple Watch?

    My watch is running 3.1.3. It did get faster when I updated it. But my wife's switches app to app a lot faster and boot up and shutdown is also faster. I'm not complaining at all. Its actually neat to see the difference between the 2, mine is getting a little old lol.

    I'm running Apple Watch Beta 3.2 but haven't noticed an increase in speed. I don't have another Apple Watch to compare tho.

    I tried to do the Beta update but it will not let me. I got as far as installing the profile but it hangs up and will not let me install beta. I did the 10-3 on my iPhone 7 and all went well.

    I'm not sure why you can't get the Apple watch beta.

    It looks like Target is having a sale on some of the Series 1 38 and 42mm Aluminum Watches. I don't know how long it's in effect.

    Still running like a champ. Do I want it quicker? Sure but I mostly use notifications, not apps, so not seeing much of an issue. watchOS3 made loading easier which was enough for me

    I use Carrot Weather and Fantastical mostly.

    Are you a registered Apple developer? The beta for the Watch is only for developers. However, 3.2 public release came out yesterday so you can upgrade to that now.

    I just cleared my last Watch of the beta token. I'm fine with waiting for the Public Release.

    MAYBE if one of them has a killer feature, I'll get back in. Going to the wOS3 beta was well worth the time. I don't know that there will be another update as significant the jump from wOS2 to 3.

    I've still got my First Gen Apple Watch Sport, wore it all the time for a year then got bored of it....however, I've gone back to it now. For me there is no point in changing it for one of the newer models.
