    Although I haven't seen it stated exactly like this, my understanding is that all Apple Watches will get WatchOS 4. And if support was ending for one, it would be on the original Apple Watch, with its older processor, and not the Series 1. The Series 1 should likely be supported for just as long as the Series 2 (with both having a dual core processor).

    I saw somewhere it was said that OS 4 would be available on all versions of the watch. But with any OS upgrade, it may not run as well on older versions of the hardware.

    Every series of watch from the original watch to the current S2 will be supported on watchOS 4. I have it installed on a SS S0 and a SS S2 watch and you can not tell the difference in OS performance. The watches still perform the same as when they had 3.2 on them.

    How much longer do you think Apple will support series 1. Software wise

    It's the same dual core processor as the Series 2 - so, as long or about as long as the Series 2, I'll bet.

    We should clarify that "Series 1" is not the same watch as the original Apple Watch. Though it looks and works the same, when Apple introduced the Series 2 last fall, they also announced that they would sell a new Series 1, with a processor upgraded to the one that came with the the original Apple Watch.

    If your question is "how much longer will Apple provide updates to the original Apple Watch," I do not know. I would hope that they will provide updates so long as the hardware can handle the software.
