Good job! I can only seem to find a gps + cellular at Best Buy, Target, or other places. While there is temptation, I am going to have to be patient since I only want gps.

That’s the problem I had. That or it was the wrong color. I wanted the silver because it shows scratches less, goes with my phone, and hopefully the wife won’t notice it’s new since my series 2 is silver too haha. I just check Best Buy’s site every day. They get different ones in daily around me.

Did your wife notice? I did the same thing in space black going from series 2 to series 3 and now contemplating the series 4.

Haha nope. Came close last week, I was going to trade I. My series 2 to the Apple give back thing. Got the box and she got home before me. I hid the box while she was busy with something. Later on she asked me what was in the package I got. I told her it was a phone case lol.

just found a series 4 silver aluminum 44mm at Best Buy an hour away from me. Bought it for pick up. Will be going to get it after work.
Nice! Let us know what you think of it. I’m loving it. Series 4 is a game changer imo.

I love it. Way more than I thought I would. The thing I like about it the most is how it fits. It’s way more comfortable then the previous watches. The larger screen size is awesome as well. Finally actually seems like a true upgrade for the watch.

Yea I noticed it fits much better also. The thinner design is one of the best new features along with the larger display and louder speakers. Not to mention apps open simultaneously. :)

I notice Siri sounds nice, loud and clear, but phone calls still suck on it. I barely ever use it to answer phone calls though, and would still barely use it to answer and place phone calls. I did use it to call my wife earlier to have her bring me something when I was on the roof of our camper though.

Yea the speaker is definitely improved but still not ideal. Still need to be in a quiet area to use it for phone calls. For quick calls it’s sufficient I guess.

I've been checking Best Buy on and off for the past couple of weeks and it seems they're still unable to keep them in stock. Last Tuesday my local store had the pair (44mm SG sport and 40mm silver sport). Pondered a bit as I wanted to wait till closer to the holidays and then they were gone. This past Friday I saw a 44mm SG sport instock 35 miles away and I jumped on it. I hopped over to Target afterwards and they had the 40mm silver sport which the website never showed as available. For those looking and happen to be at Target, ask the electronics associate even if it doesn't show instock on the website.

For the patient (not me), Best Buy and Target usually have Black Friday sales that include Apple Watch and can be ordered online (so you don't have to fight a crowd).

I know, which was the big reason I wanted to wait until closer to the holidays, but I think stock will be quite limited on the S4.
