I've never had an apple watch. Just a pebble that I don't use anymore. I have airpods which I love. The LTE model AW for me is out of the question due to the extra cost, monthly bill, battery drain, and lack of perceived need. The series 2, 42mm gold aluminum/midnight blue is on sale at Best Buy for $299. This is the color combo that I want. BUT I usually NEVER buy old technology when the new one is out.. just because I want my devices to last as long as possible. Is there that much of a difference between the series 3 and series 2, to justify the $60 price hike to $359? (Plus I'd need to purchase blue band separately for the gold watch). I understand it has a "faster" processor and a "barometric altimeter". Don't see any difference other than that. It will drive me crazy if the apps lag when I need them to open. I will be a flight attendant next year.. will a barometric altimeter be useful for me due to that? Lol. I keep going back and forth and this wonder is keeping me from pulling the trigger.
