    Right I usually don’t care about the price when I really like something but Yikes!!! I might as well get a leather link & find a sponsor to fund my braided solo loop

    I ordered the graphite SS. My current Apple Watch is the aluminum model and I just felt like upgrading. Lol

    So, I’m officially out.

    Starting at 528$ (that’s Canadian Dollars) for this little change compared to S5, there is no way that I can justify it.

    It’s possible, but it doesn’t seem like it’s actively checking...I could be wrong. I have intermittent asthma & I’m a clinician, so it would be beneficial if it actively checks. If not, I think it just depends on how much someone cares about that number or not. For me it’s not a huge deal...By the time I decide to check SpO2 on my watch, I already know I need to hit the inhaler because I’m wheezing.
    From what I heard, and have since read, it does actively check your O2, just not continuously. My impression is it will check maybe 2-5 times per hour -- that isn't clear. I'm on the fence but ordered one to upgrade from my S4, just a question of if I cancel the order. I have both sleeping and breathing issues and the S6 has some sort of upgrades to give more accurate sleep tracking.


    Edit: I found more details about automatic O2 measurements from the Apple Support website -- it states: "The Blood Oxygen app on your Apple Watch will occasionally measure your blood oxygen levels if background measurements are on. This will usually happen when you are not moving. Depending on how active you are, the number of readings collected each day and the time between these readings will vary."

    The new watch colors have already slipped into late October and in some cases middle of November (wow). I ordered the blue aluminum like 30 mins after the conference ended and got hit with the October 2- October 7th delivery date. I didn't think many folks were going to upgrade and hold out for the iPhone 12 or something but it seems series 6 is popular (judging from the ship dates).

    Thanks for this info!!! I think have it run in the background will be beneficial to a lot of people. It’s a great feature

    It’s extremely popular!!! A lot of people upgrade yearly, and there seems to be a lot of folks that held out on the S4 & S5.

    I would be one of those folks that held off on upgrading to the 4 &5 mainly because of iPhone upgrades. But excited to finally be upgrading my apple watch lol.

    If the iPhones were introduced yesterday, I would have waited until mid-november with the Watch 6.
    But since there was no iPhones announced, I saw no reason not to upgrade.

    Yea if that iphones and apple watches were announced yesterday, I think there would be a fair balance between them. But been debating on if I should upgrade from the iPhone 11 Pro Max but I am heavily leaning towards keeping it for another year and upgrading with the iPhone 13 fall 2021.

    Since my Series 5 is only a few months old and has everything I need I’ll be sticking with it. It’s faster and runs great on watchOS 7.

    Ordered a 6 in blue with sport band yesterday so won’t deliver until mid October. Then ordered the blue braided loop separately so I could get the watch before November and for some reason it’s coming at the end of this month. Go figure. I went back and tried putting them together again and it still said November.

    I’m still undecided if I want to upgrade my S4. I want SS this year in cellular.
    I upgraded from S4 gold aluminum to S6 gold SS. It arrived Monday, and it is drop-dead beautiful. The SS gold this year is amazing.

    Thanks for asking. Here is a photo that pretty much does it justice. Perhaps seeing it in person at an Apple store would be even better.

    Thanks for posting...It’s beautiful I have a gold S4 & I love it but I’m really loving this one, too. Hopefully it’ll be available in the next series, since I have no real reason to upgrade this year.
