    Finally decided to get an apple watch. Is it a good time to do so? Ebay seems to have new watches at around $275. Is it worth it buying one or should I pay the full price at an apple store?Any recommendations?

    No need to pay full prices at this point considering that it's a 1.5 year old product. Look around for discounts.

    Agree, crazy to pay full price. I bought a mint 1 month old complete in box 42mm on ebay for $220 with black woven band.

    With the new Gen 2 Watch around the corner, you will see a large majority of People wanting to sell new Watches for half the cost off of eBay. You might even find some Watches that have Apple Care attached as an added bonus.

    Which model did you find for $275.00? The Sport Watch?

    Good luck.

    I found the Sport... There are one's for much lesser as well. Just worried about the risk.

    Your also protected through EBay. I would just research the seller history for feedback and longevity. Good luck.

    I bought a 3 months old stainless steel AW with milanese loop (the model I always craved for) for 280 pounds on gumtree (320 pounds less than retail price). The watch is pristine and the person who sold me said he barely used it. Basically you can get really nice deals, so it is the perfect time to buy an used AW.

    Wait till iPhone event and then decide! Don't buy anything now as that is simply a silly idea!

    I bought one a few weeks ago, 42mm Sport w/ white and black Apple bands for $200 (guy was asking $250). Bought knowing I would probably sell it and buy the new one when it came out.

    I know it's hard to be patient but at this point it's probably best to wait. If you can't wait then be patient and wait for a deal. watchOS 3 will make the current watches run a lot better.

    Yea, I would definitely wait now for the best version that we assume will be next month. If it is just a little faster and better battery, you could get a first gen for $150 or maybe less for a sport.

    1. Something new and better is always around the corner, if you want one now, get one off of Swappa.

    Dude, its just few weeks away! (if rumours are correct) so buying now is pure stupidity (unless you get amazing deal but there will be better ones when AW2 is out).

    I bought mine (42 SS) for $300 with milanese loop because it was a good deal and I wanted to see if I liked the product. I do so I might either sell mine and get the new watch depending on what it has. I would then give my current watch to a family member.

    Best Buy usually has a sale on some models. In particular, 38mm steel with black sports band has been at $350 for months now.
