    I can potentially pick up a series 0/original 38mm sport for around £180 and im wondering if those who have one think its worth it at that price?

    I currently have a sony smartwatch 3 which can handle basic notifications, pedometer and weather but thats it so Im thinking about upgrading to the apple watch for extra functions eg. Calls, apple pay, apps, etc.

    Thank you

    I sold my immaculate 42mm sport for £205 on eBay on 30th august.

    If that price is for a new 38mm then it's worth that.

    If that's a 2nd hand it's borderline whether it's worth it. Perhaps in some of the rarer colours?

    Then that's a good price.

    watchOS 3 makes the first gen watch considerably better and £180 vs £269 is a significant gap between that and the new series 1.

    Does anyone find there a significant usage difference between the 38mm and the 42mm series 0 in terms of usage?

    I can get a 42mm for about £45 more but im wondering if its worth it.

    I originally bought a 38mm & found the touch buttons too small for my fingers & the screen was a little too small for me - I then swapped for a 42mm & found it to be the perfect size usability wise (+ the battery lasted longer too!) But to be honest - its all down to how big your wrists are!!

    Id suggest popping into an Apple Store or maybe something like Curry's where you can see them, then going to Argos once you've decided.

    When I first got mine last year I thought I'd need the 38mm as I have skinny wrists, but the 42 looked fine and it is easier to use. The 38 was a. It too small.

    I think gender plays a part too, men's watches are often quite large whereas women prefer smaller watches, even ignoring for different wrist sizes.

    I'd recommend the 42mm over the 38mm too.
