    How long ago did you make a firm decision on what you were going to get? Did you change your mind a lot before then? Did you actually buy what you said you were going to? Did you trade up or down because of availability issues?

    Have gone back and forth a hundred times and ended up with my original choice, however, now wondering if I made the right decision!

    I made a firm and final commitment to pretty much every combination. Finally made up my mind two days ago – Tim Cook Special – and stuck with it when I ordered.

    From the September reveal until the March event I wanted the Space Black SS 42mm (with black link bracelet) - then when the pricing was revealed I changed my mind to the less expensive 42mm SS Milanese Loop. That's what I ended up ordering tonight. I also ordered a green sport band, but it looks like that might not show up for a few more weeks.

    During that period, I was all set to get the Edition :cool:

    Then they published the prices . . .

    I toyed with the idea of a SS with black sport band but it was always going to be a 42mm Space Grey Sport.

    i was interested in the edition (figured I could afford it when i expected it to be ~$1000. HAhahahaha)
    Then went for the Space Black Link since thats what I really wanted to put on my pebble. And wimped out of that too when I saw the price. But I did like the Milanese since I saw it, and I did order that...

    Yes, ordered 42mm SS with Link. Same choice from day one and never thought of changing to other combinations. Might add a leather strap later

    Now the long 4-6 weeks wait......again. Seems like all we do is wait

    Not even a little, my g/f kind of convinced me to get a pink one when I thought I was going to get a blue. I really wanted orange and the pink looks more orange than pink.

    I also ordered a black band for office / formal stuff.

    If the platform is successful I will most likely upgrade to a more stylish formal type of band.

    I more or less did. I decided on the 42mm SS with black sport strap a while ago but for the past week I've been toying with the idea of getting the milanese loop and trying to squeeze into it because frankly that's the one I really want.

    But in the end I stuck with the sports strap just so I can be sure it will fit round my bloody wrist when it arrives. I'll head to my nearest Apple store at some point and see if I can force my way into the milanese loop and if I can I'll buy one. Be handy having one for exercise and one for everything else anyway I suppose.

    My decision came down to the last minute but I ended up getting the SS Black Sport band (vs Aluminum Space Gray).

    I don't like the SS steel but really wanted a Sapphire display.

    Yes, though I managed to sleep through my alarm and have a June shipping date. Whatever. It comes when it comes. Space Black Stainless Steel Link. :D

    Was stuck between Link and Milanese.

    Went for Milanese because of the shipping estimates.

    Just tried them both on and they're both fantastic.

    I had thoughts of the sport for a bit after seeing reviews. But here's the thing. If I don't like the performance, I'll return it. Getting the Sport made no sense in that regard. It's not as if I would keep the Sport model either if it's too laggy or buggy.

    Yes but was only ever going with my first choice no matter what the wait.

    Ummed and arrr'd a bit, and eventually went for the sport white.

    Didn't want to risk another iPhone 5 with the coating on the space grey. If that thing chips, it's going to show up really bad.
