    I'm buying two (one 42mm & 38mm)SS with black leather bands. One for me and the other for my fiancé. Kinda a surprise wedding gift.
    I'm guessing the watch might not be as fun if I can't interact in those intimate ways (sending your heartbeat and cute drawings) with the person I communicate the most with.

    Just one here, but that's a nice gift. Your fiancee will love it.

    Congrats, by the way.

    I think I'll be getting two 42mm space grey sport models for my partner and I. He says he's still not sure if he wants one but when I get one I know he'll be jealous once he sees it. Might as well plan ahead.

    I'm getting one for myself 100%. On the fence as to whether or not I am going to order one for my wife and surprise her. Not sure how well it would be received which is why I'm not sure at this point.

    Lol,nothing wrong with planning ahead at all. You sound like a thoughtful person. Are you pre-ordering online or going into the store to try it on first?

    Yes. One for working out. One for lifestyle.

    Nah, I'm not even getting one. ;)

    That would be disheartening to buy her one and she not like it.

    Depends on the gender of your partner - fiancé is a guy and fiancée is a woman. So, you may be right or not, depending on your orientation!

    Oops. I made an assumption, but it depends on gender. If your betrothed is a male, then it is fiance. If the lucky person is a female, fiancee.

    One for me and one for my lover. No point having one if I cant use the cool drawings and heartbeat messaging.

    was buying 2 at one time to test 38 vs. 42; however, wrist measures oversized for 38mm Milanese so must pre-order 42mm milanese. No reason to test online preorder, I'll just double-check with instore as unlikely 38mm a good fit at all.

    Well, it sounds like the gold models would be perfect for your situation! Hint, hint! :D:D

    Agreed, I'm getting two as well, one for me and a second for my wife for the same reasons you are. I'm getting us both the aluminum "starter" models just to see how they work out. If they get integrated like the iPad has, I'll get us fancier ones when the Gen 2 models come out.

    Quite aware of that. Live it, bro. It's worked for me for 25 years.

    25 years! That's phenomenal. With my wedding coming up.... I hope to one day be in your shoes. I wish you a blissful 25 more.

    One for me and one for my wife, but not because I want her to have one, but because she actually wants one. First time she saw a picture of it, she wanted one (and she is FAR from being a gadget person). Of course, she WANTED the rose gold, until we saw that it was solid gold and knew the prices would be insane.

    So SS 38mm with brown modern buckle for her, and... I THINK black SS 42mm for me, even though it's the most expensive.

    Same boat for me. She will either like it but not use it as much, or not like it and wonder if it is worth the money....then return it lol

    That's cool that she actually wants one. I must say. The black SS is very nice looking. Great choices. Any other bands? Maybe for when you'd like to be active?

    My wife had a FitBit Force that we returned when they had the recall, so ever since then I have owed her a fitness tracker. Not long after that recall happened, the watch was announced so she was all "I'll wait for that one!"

    So yep, two here...a 38mm for her and a 42mm for me.

    Yep, two here. One for me, one for the wife.

    She's getting 38mm Stainless Steel Modern Buckle Blue (Small I think)
    And I'm getting 42mm Stainless Steel Milanese (maybe 38mm I'm still undecided about size).

    I think I'm going to try to pre-order all online for in-store pickup, however, if that's not available I'll go to the store in the evening and reserve.

    I'm concerned that if I can't pre-order for in store pickup at 12:01am on 4/10/15,that the pre-orders for in store might be gone by the time I'm off work and make it to the store.

    So,I'll just pre-order online and go after work to try it out. If they still have pre-orders available when I'm at the store I'll cancel online (while I'm there) and re-order for in store pickup.

    ----------


    That's cool! Seems a lot more people are buying two than I thought. :)
