    I'll be upgrading my S0 to an S3 Apple Watch Sport w/ GPS+Cellular this year. Can't wait for it. My S0 was great but it's time to go. Battery can't even get me through a full day anymore and the slowness is maddening.

    If I can get the ss without paying AT&T then series 3, if not then series 2

    first smart watch.
    LTE for me.

    I thought about getting a ceramic version but someone asked how long i plan to keep it. I thought about it and I want to upgrade every year since the technology seems to make a progress each year. So I am getting an aluminum version.

    I have a series 1 and will be looking to go Series 3 without cellular. Hoping for a bit longer battery, water resistance and better heart rate monitor. Don't think I will require the cellular option as I'm rarely without my phone. So pumped.

    SS 42mm LTE for me

    If it had the podcast app it would be perfect.

    I always jam pack as much music on my watch as I can so I'm looking forward to having double the storage.

    My own S0 works perfectly - I still manage a full day (workout included) with 30-40% battery left.
    And yet, I'll go with a S3 because I need the waterproof feature. I had to stop running due to a sore foot and have now started swimming, and I'd like to track my workouts with my Apple Watch.
    I had hoped to replace my aluminium S0 with a SS model (GPS only), but of course Apple decided not to provide that version. :mad:
    So I either go with S3 GPS aluminium or S3 GPS+Cellular SS. Still haven't made up my mind, though. :(

    I always said I wouldn't bother with Hermés again but the new Hermés Marine Gala Single Tour Èperon d'Or looks incredible in the images

    As a runner, I'm thinking the Nike version which offers some custom watch faces is the one I'm going to opt for.

    I've said this in a number of threads, but the amount of calls I've taken on my S0 now, can be counted on one hand, so why spend more money to buy it, and increase the cost of my verizon bill if I don't need too. My phone is on me, or close proximity for nearly the entire day.

    Series 3 Cellular for me, upgrading from a Series 2. Space Grey with the Dark Grey band. Already have the black band so why get it again.

    I'm going from a s0 to a Nike LTE 42mm space grey. Really looking forward to the gps, lte and waterproofing. Also just picked myself up some AirPods so all I want now is for podcasts and audible on the watch and I can go to the gym phone free. I usually do weights and use the fitness point app on the watch, it's brilliant.

    My s0 is the aluminium gold. Looks like they have turned the aluminium gold into a women's watch as it now only comes with a rose gold band.

    I'm upgrading my launch day SS Series 0 watch to the S3/cellular/gps. I'm running watchOS4, and am happy with my battery life, so that's not the reason. I would like the additional health options on the S3. However, the ONLY reason I'm getting cellular is because I want stainless steel and cannot get without cellular.

    Does anyone think in order to get the Apple Watch series 3 non LTE, I would need too be up at 3am to preorder?

    looking at the survey result up above, LTE will account for 59% of the aw3 sold.
    if anything there will be a shortage of lte models.

    I am still going back and forth on if I want the LTE space grey or not. I'm thinking of getting the LTE just in case I decide to activate it. I would like to see reviews on how people use LTE version over the GPS.

    I was leaning just getting a heavily discounted series 2 as I do not need the LTE.

    BUT I think I want to get the SS 42MM LTE model for resale value alone and also probably not even activate the LTE.

    Stinks they don't have a non-LTE SS model.

    If the battery life in everyday use is pathetic then the resale of LTE models will do down the drain.

    I'm getting the cellular model and may not even activate it, I will never get a composite back again, ceramic back is a must, the added cost is worth that alone.

    My original watch with composite back had some scratching, my series 2 is perfect still.

    I also think 10 a month is too much considering it's a companion device with the same number, it's not like getting a plan for an iPad.
