    What would you like to see on the Watch 6? I have my Watch 4 and love it, but will be ready to swap at the next release in September.... when i first bought the Watch i couldn’t see much use for it...that quickly changed 🤩 and wouldn’t be without it now.

    What would be nice to see/have in the next version? Comments please

    I have a S4 as well and will probably upgrade (might go Hermès this time around!)

    I’d love to see a bit of a hardware refresh/redesign as well as sleep tracking and longer battery life/faster charging!

    The Apple Watch isn’t my “daily driver” and I still mainly only use it for workouts, but since watchOS6 I find myself using the watch more and more.

    I don’t really know what I’d like to see with the next Watch, but I sure as heck would like the next watchOS to include some nice classy watch faces that can be used in previous Watch models.

    Battery life definitely! I’m not sure I’d find sleep tracking that useful.

    Better battery life and native sleep tracking. I’ve had my S4 for almost 2 years, so it’ll be time for me to upgrade in September. I don’t know if I’ll stick with aluminum or stainless steel this go around.

    I never sell my watches I pass them down to family, so I’m not worried about the resale value. I just need to not forget to get AppleCare on the next watch.

    I have an S3 and will probably swap mine out the next round. I think I will keep my S3 as a back up.

    S3 LTE here. Still works just fine. Since we just got new iPhones (11 Pro Max) we might wait and see if the 5’s drop in price.

    I won't be getting one myself, but I'd love to see a redesign - something completely fresh. Maybe one with a protective bezel, to help prevent some display fractures. Maybe a move toward the use of simple Qi charging rather than the charging puck. Always better battery life. Maybe any extra button, so that there can be hardware button functionality for things like workouts, stopwatch, etc.

    The rest of my wishes are probably more watchOS 7 wishes than Series 6 wishes. (Better AOD support for third party apps and watch faces; third party watch face support; more health sensors, such as blood oxygen levels and perhaps blood sugar levels, if possible; better workout support, especially running intervals, and make the dumb countdown optional already; iPhone independence, so a watch can stand alone, finally; support for syncing to iPad and Mac or even iPod Touch; Health data access on iCloud.com, MacOS, and iPadOS.) My watchOS wish list gets smaller all of the time, though.

    The ability to be independent of iPhone would be great!!! You should be able to restore your watch from backup without having to restore your phone from backup.

    The longer battery life and cheaper price. I'm also using Apple Watch 5, but the battery life is only about 18 hours. I have to charge it every night. So I hope to see the longer battery life.

    Better battery life and built in sleep tracking. That’s pretty much it. I really like my Apple Watch 4.

    Hardware: thinner and better battery life (yes, I want Apple to defy the laws of physics!)
    Software: sleep tracking and more/better cumulative stats for workouts

    Oh, I keep forgetting my one long-time watchOS/watch wish list item: customized ringtones and notification tones.
