    Hi all,

    I'm looking to pick up a Watch Sport. But is it worth it picking it up in January, or should I wait until April/May, because that's when it's 1 year old and they might update it?

    Thanks, Alex

    here's a link to the other thread that is still on the front page asking that very question

    and a link the the buyers guide that's at the top of this page that also has that information

    or if that's too much work, to click the links...
    depends on you, no one knows when the new one will be out, everyone here is guessing.

    if you'll be crushed in 3 months (maybe more, maybe less) when the GREAT new feature is added to the next version (although that feature might suck, be completely useless, or could be the feature that redefines the smart accessory market) then you should wait.

    I've made my predictions as to release date and new features, but i've hermetically sealed themin a mayonnaise jar and placed that on funk and wagnall's back porch. Only to be opened when the launch is announced.

    Is it worth the saving in the price? If you don't care about that, wait.

    Personally, the savings was a big plus, and I can always sell the current model for the next model if need be.

    I personally wouldn't. If the March Event is true and they release a gen 2 in the summer, you can decide if the new features are worth waiting for or not. If they aren't, the gen 1 will be even more discounted. My assumption. It's not the same as an iPhone so the price should drop a lot for old versions.

    The thing is no one but Apple knows when Watch 2 will be released. It could be March, it could be in the Fall according to recent rumors.
