    I love the redesigned modular face and the other new face they announced. I actually like that the watch has more screen.

    Like? The better heart health features, haptic crown is nice, the new watch faces are nice (though I'd never use that many complications.)

    Dislike? I'm going to call it a design feature - the price. Steep upgrade in price this year. $529 for the bigger one with cellular in aluminum?

    I especially like smaller bezels coupled with thinner and faster. The new faces are interesting, but I'll probably stick with activity digital.

    I’m not sure. That would be nice for the folks that have a Series 3.

    I love the larger screen. This was definitely a selling point for me.

    How much higher is the price?

    $100 more than last year’s series 3 price for cellular, $70 for GPS (though this year’s has 16 GB storage for the GPS while last year’s was 8 GB for GPS only and 16 GB for cellular.)

    I really wish Apple would sell the watches without a band. As it happens, I don't have a milanese band and don't mind that the AW4 SS includes it. BUT, if I already owned a milanese band, that would make the watch $150 more expensive than necessary.

    You don't have to get the SS with milanese, you can get it with a sport band.

    Love the new design.
    They should remove the red circle though.

    You don't have to get the SS with milanese, you can get it with a sport band.
    With any sport band? If so, then it's good there is a choice, but I still wish you could buy them sans bands. There are very few sport band colors that I don't have.

    Not sure, they're all shown in the Apple store site though, depending on the color you buy.

    Yeah you need the larger screen size to really take advantage of the extra stuff.

    For me a bigger screen is a major selling point. I'm sure to buy a 44 model black, with sports band. Didn't like the up on prices, though. Really seeing the day when I will have to jump out the Apple ship because of its prices...

    I think the fall detection opens it up to a whole new market - not just for the trend setters but people will also get them for the elderly.
    The other think I love is that my existing Apple Watch bands are still compatible with Series 4 - Apple, you rock

    I'm only a few days in to the 4 from a 2. The screen and how much more data or easier to read while keeping band and fit compatibility is nice.

    When I look at what my Max phone and a 4 LTE watch cost I have to put cost in the dislike category.

    This is my second watch and 1st Nike version. The Nike stuff is mostly "meh" except for the option to get a band unlike one I already had.
