    Congrats!
    Are you referring to the Original Apple Watch (S0)? Or Series 1?
    I’m not sure tbh, it’s a 2015 sport and that’s all I know. I was told it’s a S1 but I’ve never been sure

    So, and original Apple Watch like yours is called (by Apple) Apple Watch (1st Generation), but most of the rest of us call it "Series 0". Last year, when Apple released the Series 2, they also released a version of the original Apple Watch with the faster, updated processor that is in the Series 2 and Apple (and everyone) calls that "Series 1". The Series 1 is still being sold.

    Here is a link with the names, as Apple calls them: https://support.apple.com/en_US/specs/applewatch

    So, the original Apple Watch is called either "1st Generation" (rarely) or "Series 0" (unofficially and more frequently.) "Series 1" is the watch that was first released on fall 2016.

    Are you using the speaker? Or bluetooth earphones?
    You should be able to adjust the volume by rotating the digital crown.

    I have the original Apple Watch and the speaker is loud and clear at 75% volume. If yours at max is still soft, means it ain't normal.

    It's a second hard from eBay. Warranty over. Do you think Apple can do anything to solve?

    They could. There's a news about the first gen Apple Watch saying warranty extended to 3 years, not sure if it's just for certain isolated issues or overall.

    Thanks and do update us, so if my original Apple Watch breaks down before the end of the 3rd year, I'll know if I can send it for a Genius Bar appointment.

    Still using the original Series 0. Primarily for bike rides so I can monitor, and if needed, safely stop to take a call or text. Watch does a good job overall capturing ride health data (heart rate, etc.). Beyond that I don't use during the week as the default band that came with the 42mm Sport version tends to cause sweat and resultant irritation to build up - even when indoors with AC.

    You should give the other bands a try.
    The Nike+ band and Sports Loop should solve the problem.

    Yes I’m not buying a new one until the use have become what I think it could be. LTE on it is not what I picture so I’ll keep rocking my OG until it’s time
