    But I did order two new bands!

    I can’t see buying the series 7 because it’s not a whole lot different from the series 6.

    I definitely didn't see anything that merits an upgrade from my 6.

    Agreed. Same processor, same battery life, same health sensors. No reason to upgrade, TBH.

    I’m not disappointed in the newest Watch, however, my current Watch 5 is still running fast and smoothly so I’ll continue to use it. Heck, it still looks new and I wear it EVERY day.

    My series 5 is at 88% battery health so I’m not ordering a S7 now, but I may have no choice in the spring. We'll see.

    Mine is at 86%, but I can still take my Watch off the charger at 7 / 7:10 AM and go all day on a single charge before putting it back on the charger at 10-ish PM with battery life left.

    My Series 4 is at 81% battery health but there's still not enough of a difference between the 4 and 7 for me to upgrade. If the health apps/capabilities are upgraded next year then i'll get that instead.

    It’s essentially the same as the Series 6. The processor is the same and didn’t get an upgrade. Just a bigger display and quicker charging. I did hear that the old cases probably wouldn’t work, though, because the edges on top might be a bit rounder.

    Never checked my battery health until I read this post. My Series 4 is at 87%,Series 5 at 97% and my Series 6 is at 91%l I will probably be getting the Series 7 because it's hard to say no to the extra real estate.

    I have a 5 which I may just hold onto. I’m a bit boring with watch colors. Have always gone aluminum silver look. I have a bunch of silver not inexpensive bands that I really like. There doesn’t seem to be that color choice. I like the blue a lot but that I feel limits the bands I could wear. The midnight is ok… may be a game time decision once I see it in person. Sigh… I wanted to upgrade.

    I’m keeping my S4 for another year. Hopefully new health sensors will be added and then I’ll upgrade.

    My Series 5 with its 83% battery health will need to hang on another year.

    Probably because of workouts, this isn’t true for me. I need about 30 - 60 minutes charge in the morning after a workout to get through a day.

    I am looking forward to checking my Series 3's battery health after I upload WatchOS7! I still get an average of 29 hours between charges! I think that's pretty impressive!

    Never checked my battery life til this thread…my S4 is at 83%. Depending on my workouts, I can make it through the day most times. My reason for getting the S7 are me wanting Space Black Stainless, the increased screen size, and the fact that it has pretty much the same form factor. I’ll be really disappointed if I wait a year and they change to that square sides form factor.

    Edit: I also don’t use any of the health features so that’s not worth me waiting on.

    At this point it I feel like I must wait until new sensors/features get introduced. Though I'm definitely enticed by the improved screen/battery in the 7.

    I will admit I like the bigger screen for the S7, but I’m going to patiently wait to see if Apple implement new health sensors next year and a bigger battery to last longer than the S6/S7. I’m pretty much okay with using my S4 for another year, unless I break it, it bricks or the battery swell. Fingers crossed this watch holds out for another year.
