Was looking at a watch for daughter she currently has an iPhone 7 rose gold. thought I'd get same colour, but notice just now its not available, even in series 1? is it not available anywhere now?

I seen the gold, but not sure if she'll like this, is it a decent match, rose gold iPhone and gold watch?

thanks

Discontinued.

I hate it too, I had planned to get one for my mother in law. I have located a Series 1 at a Walmart near me, but the difference between Series 1 ($250) and Series 3 ($330) is pretty small for the difference in spec's. I really messed up by missing Best Buy closing out their Series 2's for $269. That would have been ideal. Their website shows some "open box" watches (for even less) but I'm not sure about that.

I had the series 1 rose gold and now have the new series 3 gold. It really is a very small difference. I do prefer the rose gold, but it's not a big deal. The rose gold attachments in third party bands look great with the new gold.

You can always check Swappa and eBay for any used models. That would likely be your best option.

Ugh, I have wasted all day trying to get a Series 1 Rose Gold from Walmart. One near me said they had two and their price was $199.00. Nope, online inventory off, went to a second store, same. Went back to the office (since I do have to work) bought online at a 3rd store, went after work to pick up, yup, wrong again. Then had trouble returning it without even leaving the store. The one they had left was not Rose Gold, it as GOLD.

Silver it is!

The series 3 gold is really close to the rose gold of the 6 series. With the included pink sand band it’s nearly a dead match.

My daughter has a newer rose gold SE and hers is much pinker than my 6s+ but really they all coordinate well enough.

In UK can't find any, would rather have had the rise gold, series 2 ideally, but none anywhere.

Haven't seen the gold in person yet so will have to have a look.

It's funny that the people that like rose gold don't think the S3 gold it's rosy enough and the people that like gold don't think it's yellow enough (and too rosy). I'm in the latter camp but still may buy a S3 gold.

I wanted rose gold to match daughter's rose gold iPhone 7 ideally.

They also still do rose gold Beats headphones as well

I suspect that rose gold and gold were the least popular models so they decided to combine them to save some $$. And the rich get richer :p
