    I want to believe with the wide range of prices, something would be salvageable year over year. This is a tech company though so...

    Do you think the old bands will fit the new watch. I have at least 6 bands.

    Yes, it will be (virtually) the same case and the updated :apple:Watch will be sold along side. Apple will only change the band's connectors when it can give a plausible reason, like a 'thinner case' and this will likely be a few generations down the road.

    Even with a somewhat thinner case the connectors probably wouldn't be changed. I think Apple is aware that the bands are a bit of an investment and that customers will appreciate that they're going to fit the next AW versions.

    Exactly. Makes me that much more willing to upgrade from model to model if the bands can come along for the ride.

    It'd be the dumbest move in watchdom.

    ... which is why I don't think Apple would do it.

    Those "what if" questions without any basis in reality are silly.

    I am no upgrading...so, whether the new AW2 is compatible with AW1 bands is irrelevant...i will just continue enjoying AW1 and WatchOS3. :)

    FUD thread but I'm hoping to keep mine too. I like how you are now completely confident now. However after the event and we are told how much more magical, faster, more useful, epic, incredibly awesome and amazing with all the new must have killer features it will have then report back.:eek: Apple is the master of spin and product hype. Never underestimate their ability to influence and stroke your wants and desires.:D

    If the watch2 is a just a little faster I will gladly upgrade. The watchbands will be compatible, that's a given.

    Faster is a given too. Not only will it be faster but it will be (cue Keynote graph pointing WAY up) 'unbelievably faster' and 'our fastest watch processor ever'.

    haha i laughed out loud on that one, i can see that graph saying these exact words showing a 60% increase in speed over the apple watch 1 at the keynote, cant wait for the keynote!

    the bands will most certainly be compatible, there are leaks of the parts of the apple watch 2 already posted on macrumors, its got the exact same body as the apple watch 1 but with a slimmer display and a larger battery inside which is great imo, i love my apple watch 1 but i will be upgrading most likely if i see that the apple watch 2 is worth the upgrade, im getting the iphone 7 plus due to the dual camera for sure thats without a question

    The world will continue spinning and most of you would buy the watch and new bands anyway.

    It will slow down in its spin though.:eek: Come to think of it the earth will slow down either way so Apple may as well keep the same connector.:D
