    Been tempted i must admit but the main reason for upgrading for me would be for LTE but if i can’t order the x on EE due to time it would take compared to the upgrade program then i may just skip the series 3 as the series 2 is pretty good as it is.

    Anybody here resisted or getting tempted to upgrade?

    Very tempted ... I have my Space Black S2 on Craigslist hoping someone picks it up. If they bite, I’ll purchase it through the carrier on their monthly installment plans.

    Not even tempted. Series 2 does everything that I need it to do. Don’t need another LTE service/access bill. I always have my phone with me.

    Lte is not a killer feature for me, and even if I wanted it my provider does not offer the watch plan.

    Nope. LTE is very alpha in UK, my carrier does not support it and I’ve got a friend have an absolute nightmare with EE and connecting to LTE on his watch that he had just given up and returned it.

    I’m happy with my Series 2 and as my iPhone is always with me having LTE isn’t a must. I’m spending money on new bands instead.

    Speed wise yes much faster.
    I had the edition version 2 and 3 side by side and apps open quicker. Processing incoming emails and sending.
    Overall the v3 is worth it to me.
    The LTE has been transparent

    I switched... just sold my S2 earlier this week.

    The speed difference is absolutely noticeable and the watch runs so much better. LTE isn’t amazing but it is cool to leave my phone and not really worry, say going for a run or in the gym.

    Also multitasking is much cleaner now that it’s faster, bouncing between Strong, Music App, and messages is fairly easy.

    Siri is actually usable now as well, so that’s a plus.
