    Awesome. I too have upgraded to the series 4 (Alu) in the past weeks. I just bought my first Apple Watch (SS Space black series 3) in March/April, but couldn’t pass up a good deal that was offered.
    Overall I’m Happy I upgrading also

    Just sold my 2 for $100. Best Buy only wanted to give me $25 so I went to CraigsList.

    $100 for an s2 is a great deal. Win-win for both parties. It’s always better to sell privately, but a lot riskier. So meeting up in public area and with a partner/friend is always recommended

    Series 2 was getting kind of sluggish with Watch OS 5. Series 4 is super fast.

    Series 0 didn't get the update to watchOS 5, and system features like notifications, music controls, the control center and the watch faces with their complications still work quite well. Using third party apps is pretty much impossible though, not that there are a lot of them available. I think I'll just wait it out until series 5 is released. The Hermés one I want isn't available to order for quite some time now too, which makes waiting a lot easier.

    I did it 3 days ago 0 -> 4.

    Cannot express my wonder when I tried "Hey Siri" after raising wrist and I was pleasantly reminded that I no longer need that. Also the brightness, large screen, fast app load blew me away.

    Thanks to those guys at Apple from me too..

    Haha yeah, Siri is unusably slow on the first gen watch. Congrats on the upgrade!

    I also just love it when i click WORKOUT program and it takes 5 minutes to load. Also upgraded to S4 from S0 a month ago. S0 became frustrating to use; OK to use as notification watch, but for anything else, it became a drag to use literally!

    I lost my Series 3 during a move last March, so I was planning to wait for the Series 5. However, I got tired of waiting and picked up an aluminum 44mm (GPS only) Series 4 on Amazon during last week's Prime Day for $360. It's a significant improvement over Series 3, with the larger display (and the new watch faces to go along with it), ECG function and the increased processing speed.

    The Watch S0 had the same processor from the first iPad 2... I had a problem with Siri on the first Watch, I felt it very sluggish, so I called Apple Support, they told me that the processor was the same that the iPad 2, and the next day I returned it, it was so bad the first Watch OS, that felt like using a beta software.

    have the AW S3, going to wait for September's announcement to see if the AWS5 is coming out this year. But I do like the S4.
