    I purchased a 38mm (SS) 16 months ago and after a while wished I had got the 42mm version.

    I have now bought an S2 42mm (SS) and noticed the performance difference with OS3 on both watches is negligible.

    The screen on the 42mm s2 is far far superior - seems more "retina" than the 38. Is this a feature of 42 in general or S2 brighter screen?

    i am wondering to return the s2 42mm and buy a used s0 42mm at a really discounted rate.

    the cost to change to a 42mm s2 is around £450 where as more like £100 for 42mm used s0.


    Anyone else thinking the same?

    thoughts?

    depends if the new features on the S2 works for you? buying a used S0 42mm SS w/ AC+ cheap was great for me. the new features (which should have been on the S0 from the beginning) were not enough to buy full price for one given the discounts they have on the S0.

    Good point, i guess the key is to try and get S0 with good warranty remaining or applecare(+)

    As for the extra features... I don't swim or run and navigating the streets on a tiny screen isn't for me.

    The performance is the main draw and possible extra protection in the waterproofness
