The debut of new Apple Watch models every year brings an assortment of non-customizable collections, which bundle in one case finish (Stainless Steel or Aluminum) with one band. If you're interested in the new Apple Watch Series 4, you'll have to purchase one of these collections in order to get the advantages of the Series 4's new and bigger display, thinner size, ECG monitor, and more.


Because of this, picking a specific model can be difficult, so we've decided to take a look at every Apple Watch Series 4 option that will be up for pre-order starting September 14 at 12:01 a.m. PDT. Prices are taken from Apple.com in the United States.

Regarding the new 40mm and 44mm case sizes, Apple has slightly increased the height of the Series 4 cases and updated the size options to reflect that change. As a rule of thumb, if you've worn 38mm Apple Watches in the past, go for 40mm in Series 4, and if you've previously worn 42mm cases, then the 44mm Series 4 should fit you well. All previous generation Apple Watch bands will fit with Apple Watch Series 4.

I work at night and midnight is my first break so I'll make my first purchase using the Apple store app during that time. :D
40mm Space Gray with black sports band. Right now I wear a 39mm round Citizen Eco drive so It should be fine especially with the extra display area. :)

My first time buying an Apple Watch. Do these things sell out fast like the Iphones? Should I make sure I'm ordering at 12:01am tonight? Thanks

Does anyone own a Hermes edition? They sure look nice, but that price is pretty high. I know you can buy a band by itself for around $300, which means you are paying $999 (stainless LtE sport band for $699 plus $300 Hermes band). Are there other differentiators that justifiy the $1299 price point for the 44v

Apple's really sticking it to stainless steel owners every way imaginable. For anyone with a collection of stainless steel bands, effective 2017 you were locked into also paying $100 extra for LTE whether you wanted it or not. Then, Apple raised the price another $100 this year. And to top it all off, the stainless steel models are only offered as a bundle with the bands you're most likely to already own.

For $749, I should at least get the opportunity to BTO my watch to include one of the new colored sports bands instead of paying twice for the white one I already own.

What time does the watch go on sale? I know the phones are 12:01 PDT but is that true for the phones? Product launches outside of the phones usually don’t go on sale at 12:01 do they?

What's the difference between aluminum vs stainless steel case, other than the obvious? Why is it $220 more?
Someone else mentioned this as well, but the Sapphire is the biggest selling point. It's nearly impervious to scratching. I had my first Aluminum last year, and I didn't find the glass to be an issue personally.

Aesthetics. And the Sapphire display for the 316 L stainless model, which the aluminum uses Ion-X glass for the display material.
Thanks. Funny how the comparison on 4 vs 3 on apple site only states sapphire glass. Guess Apple Watch stainless steel instead of an upgrade to Xr is the way to go.

They got rid of the only watch I actually liked because of my OCD. No more white ceramic, no more buying apple watches for me. :(

The GPS + Cellular just kills me. I want the sapphire but have no need for cellular. The last thing I need is another device on my plan to pay a monthly fee on, just so I don't have to carry my phone with me. I'll be sitting this one out.

As opposed to the rule of thumb where if you wore 42 you go down to 40, and if you wore 38 you go up to 44? Hopefully you guys didn't lose a lot of sleep last night calculating that rule of thumb.

I'm guessing ECG as well? And the larger screen. There are definitely differences between the series 4 and 3.

Sticking it? If you think it's too expensive or you can't afford it, then don't buy it. The US Constitution doesn't guarantee an Apple Watch of your choice at the price you name. No one is sticking you with anything.

There are watches in this world that sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars simply because of who makes them or what they are made of. Any Apple Watch for under $1,000 is a bargain in comparison.

The differentiator is paying for a product with the "Hermes" logo attached. Amazon has a huge list
of watch bands for less than $20

The Steel Case feels "heavy" vs the Aluminum. I have the Watch Series 0 in Steel and it feels much better for me personally
