    Hello,

    ive recently brought an apple watch, from a catalogue,

    its did states which watch it was, series 1 or 2,

    i ordered it on the 2nd september, before series 2 was announced,

    after reading this link today on 9to5mac, https://9to5mac.com/2016/09/19/top-new-apple-watch-series-1-series-2-features-video/?pushup=1

    it states half way down that only series 2 comes with a woven strap ?

    is this true ?

    if this is the case.. how on earth did the the catalogue have the watch ive brought on the 2nd september,
    this is the link ...

    That is the first generation Apple Watch Sport. Aka Series 0 & Gen 1.

    So in a nutshell, you aren't getting a Series 1 or Series 2 device. If you paid 349 quid for it, you should probably return it as I believe you can get a Series 1 for 299 in the UK.

    thanks for your reply, and really appreciate the quick response !
    so just to clarify, does the series 1 also come with a woven strap as an option ?

    the 9to5 post which i added, stated that only the series 2 comes with this option,

    thank you

    Unfortunately, Series 2 is the only one offered with a woven strap in the box. But if it's a difference of 349(S0) vs 299(S1), you could pick up a woven strap for I believe it's 50 quid in the UK.

    thanks again for the reply, well this is my query,

    i ordered this item on the 2nd of sep, it states it comes with a woven strap, from the link i provided below,

    http://www.lookagain.co.uk/products...n-strap-by-apple-black/_/A-61W159_?suffix=WLP

    how could they be advertising this on the 2nd sep if series 2 hadn't been released yet ?

    IIRC, woven straps existed for the Series 0. They added new colours for the Series 1/2 release I believe.

    They didn't advertise a Series 2. What you ordered is a 1st gen or "Series 0".

    The series 0 did come with a woven strap. Series 1 does not, series 2 does. You got a series 0.

    You ordered a first generation Watch. You did not order a second generation Series 1 or Series 2.

    Sorry
