After daily use of my trusty S0 bought at release 4 and a half years ago, I just ordered the new S5. The S0 still works, but it’s painfully slow and the OS is orphaned. This should be good.

And I’m not disappointed. My S5 arrived today. The step up is amazing. The speed, options for setting up multiple faces and swiping between them, ECG and more — quite a delight.

Picked up my S5 yesterday to replace my S0 as well. Very happy with the upgrade. Not ditching the S0 though, I'll keep it to wear when the S5 is on charge ( I put it on when I shower and take it off before bed once it's charged up), as well as any activities that may cause damage, such as mowing the lawn. Give it 6 months or so and I'll be less careful about looking after it, then the S0 might see full retirement.

Only thing I'm still waiting on, but not holding my breath on seeing, is ECG in Australia. Although it wasn't a deal breaker for me, I know some with heart issues that would like the feature, just for keeping an eye on things.

I ordered mine but have not received it yet, my plan is to put a sport band on my S0 wear it to track my sleep with one of those apps out there. Then wear my S5 as my daily driver! :) so excited!

I’ve held onto my original S0 stainless steel with link bracelet, and also have a series 4. The difference is truly night and day, however I still hold onto my S0. The combination looks good and I still wear it out at night. The performance is lacking but it still does basic notifications well. It also isn’t worth much so it’s not bad as a second watch.
