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’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.

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.

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!
