Was considering the Starlight but after those reviews and seeing it I’m wondering if I should go to midnight lol,
Anyone else having colour remorse?

Oh I’ve had color remorse before, during and after pre-order lol!! Honestly, I haven’t settled on a color in my mind. Was waiting for those review videos but they’re only aluminum, so I can’t tell if the other materials look same as S6 or not. Right now have a midnight and SS Graphite I can get this Friday. Who knows if I’ll stick with either though.

I was very set on Midnight, but then I watched The Verge's review and Justin Tse's unboxing. I didn't realize just how dark the green was. It is very subtle. It reminds me of the midnight green for the iPhone 11 Pro Max, which was my favorite iPhone color ever.

I just wonder how the green will look with the various colors of the bands.

Green was my second choice which I didn’t get because I love my first choice. But I am a veeeery picky greener, so for me to say I love this green it’s a lot. I don’t like the clover green band at all though. Instead, I liked a lot the Cyprus Green sport band, Sequoia Green leather link and Mallard Green. Not sure about Inverness Green, I’d have to see it in person. Of course, the blue bands are almost all my faves, so no surprise here. If my budget would let me, I’d get the green S7 too 😁

I was torn between the blue and the green and ordered blue. The green looks awesome in the reviews. I'm bummed there are no blue reviews that I've found. So, just being able to see if makes me like the green a lot and have a little hesitation, but I'm sure I'll love the blue when I finally get to see it.

between green and blue, i'd go with green as well. it's a bit darker than the blue which is to my liking. my 1st choice for aluminum is still midnight, but i already have a space gray aluminum series 4, want to change it up a bit.

Ordered the blue, I’m still good with it. My only hesitation is cellular or not.. I always question that but can never justify the monthly cost. I’m also having a fun time checking the combinations that I’m ok with to see the random delivery times.

Yes. Cancelled my Starlight 45mm for Blue 45mm today. I was going to do an in store pickup on Oct 15. Now I have to wait until Nov 18 To have it shipped. I’m hoping I can snag one in store in the next couple of weeks as my Apple store gets new inventory. Blue with Abyss Blue sports band should be a commonly stocked item … I hope.

Not sure where you’re located or your provider but t mobile came out with a new $5/month watch plan. You might already know, but it’s more in line with what I think the monthly service should have cost from the beginning.

Ordered green and after seeing the images from the reviews I’m incredibly happy I did. It looks incredible. Dark enough to be able to be warm with just about any outfit but still colorful enough to turn heads.

Hopefully AT&T follows suit. $5/month is my cap even though tax will probably push it closer to $8/month.

I think it’s a bit difficult this year - I usually go for the stainless models as I like the look and feel and think it blends in with the screen better. It feels more like jewellery to me.

But at the same time, when upgrading every year, I have a hard time justifying the cost. So this year I figured I wanted to go with the aluminium models. At first I was set on the starlight, but then changed my mind to midnight 😂 - and after the reviews are out, I think I like the starlight better. In some lights it reminds me of the ceramic. Both color options are difficult to match with my existing bands, which is why I prefer the SS models. So maybe I will end up going for one of those anyway… First world problems - I know. But damn, it is hard this year. And I also agree with the group who’d wished for a classic silver and space grey / black sports model.

And then there is the whole 41/45mm dilemma 🤭

I totally forgot about this.. my memory was still stuck at $10. You know you’re not helping me here as I have a gps only on order for my wife and I and I have no idea when watches will be available. Lol

Glad I ordered midnight since my normal SG wasn’t an option Loving the darker color in the reviews. I ordered the blue last year and returned it as it was too light blue for my taste.

I ordered the blue but made the mistake of getting the abyss blue braided loop- So similar to the other blue braided I already have. Just confirmed with the store I can swap it out there once I get it. Going with the graphite Milanese loop.

What's the process for swapping the bands? Do i just not open the box the band came in and take it to the store?

Thats what I plan on doing- You could probably open it to make sure you dont want it- But I know for sure I want a different one so no sense in opening the box

If I don’t live close to a store, can they exchange it online?
