If you buy the watch now what are you gonna do to it when gen2 comes out?
I suspect they will do the same thing they do when a new phone comes out. Some will buy and replace and others will just keep on moving on with life.
Ummm...sell the gen1 and get the gen2?
You have to get it in your mind that if you want to play in the gen1 arena with any apple products, it's gonna cost you some $ to be the early adopter....fine with me....
Damn u guys are quick, added a poll
Keep it (don't know which model yet) I have nearly every watch I've ever bought or been gifted. I've got the 1972 Mickey Mouse watch that my parents gave me when I was 5. We were really poor so it was quite a gift especially for a five year old. My collection isn't really of any value to most collectors because I didn't keep original boxes or maintain the watches very well. But it's fun to see my journey through the 70's, 80's, 90's-present preserved in popular watch styles of each era.
In all that time I only gave away a couple of watches. One really special one to a cousin who isn't very nice and doesn't like me. It was an offering of friendship and since she turned out to be a nasty piece of work I regretted it and haven't parted with a watch since, except for two recent thrift store donations that don't really reflect my personal history in any way.
Hahaha thanks for sharing your experiences grumpy
Im just gonna keep the gen 1 and move on. Im not gonna replace my watch ever year.
Keep SS gen 1 for a few years then update and give my gen 1 to my wife if she wants it.
Whether I get the Stainless Steel or the Aluminium I will sell it to upgrade to the generation 2 model.
Don't u think there is a historical significance of the watch to keep it? First device post steve jobs, first wearable smart watch etc.
Where's the option to keep gen 1 and skip gen 2?
Sell it on eBay
I'll give it to my wife and then keep it for history sake. Will not sell it.
Tough to say. Unless gen 2 has some amazing sensors added (that I NEED) I will likely skip it.
I'll put it in safe-keeping for my grandson.
I'll get sport then go for gen3 and skip gen2.
Entirely depends on what the second generation adds.
Leave the old one in a drawer somewhere because I don't feel like selling it, if my iPhones are any indication.
nothing. I'll wait for 3rd or 4th gen.
I'll likely keep gen 1 and buy gen 2. After that, I may start selling them to upgrade.
I'm getting the standard SS link bracelet. I might get the base SS v2 and reuse the link bracelet, and sell the v1 with the Sport strap. I'd recoup more of my cost this way.
My plan is to buy the SS this time round and then put a bag over my head and not look at any Apple websites so that I never even hear about the 2nd generation.
If the 2nd gen is clearly better, the temptation to upgrade will be high. What I've done with iPhones is to sell the one I own to part-fund the purchase of a the new one I want.
I no longer use eBay. I've been using O2 Recycle and the Apple version of it. eBay is too much hassle. I also use Gumtree, which is cheaper and has given me great results.
I can't imagine anything that gen 2 could possibly add that would make me feel a need to upgrade to it. Enough better battery life to actually make a usable difference (more than double), not gonna happen in just one year without making the watch significantly larger. Faster processor, speed doesn't matter much since most watch apps are actually running on your phone and using the watch as a sort-of display. GPS, I don't feel a need to go jogging without my phone in my pocket. More health sensors, I'm not a health enthusiast.
Maybe Gen 3, but by then maybe I'll be living in an AR world, where a virtual watch can just appear on my wrist when I look at it
Will probs keep the first and use it as the work/knock about watch.
