    So, since the 'new' series 1 watches will come with the dual core 'chip', if I bring in my AW in under AppleCare, would I get a single or dual core chip in the replacement?
    Might be worth the cost just to get the better chip...

    I'm sure they have a tone of refurbished units available with the original processor

    They have a boatload of returned AW1 to remanufacture so that's what you'll get as a white box replacement.

    Apple Watch Original isn't the same as Apple Watch Series 1. What's confusing is they are identical aside from the S2 processor, and the Series 1 will retail for around the same price as the Apple Watch Original. I say "around", because many retail outlets like best buy, have been selling the Apple Watch Sport for basically the same price as the new Apple Watch Series 1.
