Stainless Steel for 249.00, 300.00 off I bought one for the wife. She could care less about the new watches which is a plus for me LOL. Get em while they last folks
I'm lucky that my wife doesn't follow technology and is overjoyed with the series 0. I have the series 1 and it is noticeably faster to me but she couldn't care lessi saw that last night and it gives me pause about keeping my series 2.... but it IS noticeably faster!
You say "S2 is far faster" … faster than S1?For someone who never had an AW the SS S0 looks fine and will do the job with WatchOS3 - but the battery life will be fairly bad if you workout. If you are coming to AW S1 or S2 the S0 will feel lethargic. The S2 is far faster - and it's not a "nice to have"; it makes the watch far less frustrating (i.e., smooth) to use in most any circumstance. The S0 is just slow to boot, to load anything, it locks up or stutters. Watch OS3 improved this a LOT but it's still nowhere near the S1/S2.
I had S0 SS since launch and had WatchOS3 on it all summer. It does improve the watch... but the S2 is just much better. It's all relative I suppose.
Personally, I would only recommend a S0 at any price now to someone who just wants notifications, time, and basic workouts. That's it. And for some people - that's awesome! If you want to do any more with it though.... definitely S1 or S2.
No. The S1 an S2 have identical dual core chips and the new GPU. It's far smoother/faster than the S0 (original AW).You say "S2 is far faster" … faster than S1?
I've read other threads with conflicting info, it seems S1 and S2 have the CPU, but the S2 has a newer GPU. Would the newer GPU make the S2 noticeable faster than the S1?
just got that one. w/ AC+ & taxes it was $430 for me. not bad IMO. i bought a used one recently that i'm returning for $90 less than that w/ 1yr left on AC+ and it came with a sports band. much prefer a brand new one and a better band along with another year of AC+.Also, the 42mm SS on Leather Loop dropped from $399 last week down to $349, which seems like a great deal to me!
in a heart beat.i wish it was the 42... i woulda whipped out my CC
