    Just wondering if people can comment on performance between the watches, and whether or not the difference is significant. I did think the S2 was a bit pokey for my tastes, but the GF wants rose gold to match a third party band, and the new gold won't do it.

    The dual core processor on the Series 3 is noteably faster with over the Series 2. It definitely made a difference with scrolling and navigating through the Watch and applications. I would say this one of the most talked about upgrades with the speed.

    From series 0 to 2 I noticed a big difference. From 2-3 not a big difference.

    S2 speed was getting to be a bit frustrating. S3 speed is still not snappy, it still sometime takes a sec or two.

    Point of clarification: both have dual-core processors. 3 is still faster though.

    The portion I quoted could be interpreted by other readers as suggesting the AW2 did not have a dual core processor even though it isn't what you said. I wasn't correcting you, but clarifying for others who might misunderstand.
