    Getting the black SS this time around after owning the original space gray aluminum so I guess I'm stuck with LTE. Not sure if I'll activate it or not.

    I heard if you order through Verizon they offer 3 months of free LTE. Can anyone confirm if this is true? I'm not seeing anything on their site.

    I want the stainless steel but I just tried it on and it's heavy.

    Good choice with the black stainless. And yes, Verizon is offering three months of free LTE.

    I am upgrading from the series 0. I just started swimming, so I really want one that is waterproof. I ended up buying the series 3 w/LTE with the new loop band. I REALLY do not want to pay the extra $10 a month. I originally was planning to buy the Nike w/o-LTE with the new loop band, but the Nike ones with the new loop only comes with LTE. Then I thought about buying the other non-LTE Nike one and buying a new loop band. Then my friend said if I am going to be buying the band separately, it is only $20 more to buy the LTE one with the band I really want. I figure that I will activate the LTE and try it for 3 months for free and then decide if it is worth it or not.

    I decided on the Aluminium 42mm gps+cellular. I couldn't justify the extra for the SS. I may keep the Series 0 watch to wear on occasion with the Mil Loop, depends on what the Aluminium one looks like.

    I did the same. I wanted the SS because my series 2 that I’m giving to my GF is SS. But I just used that extra $200 to buy the 4K ATV.

    Actually that's a fairly good deal. Especially considering 90 days should give the user enough time to decide if the service is something they want to continue or not.

    SG LTE Sport Loop, I wanted a SS but balked at the last moment. I figured next year would be better to splurge.

    Was going to get SS, but opted for Aluminium silver + AirPods.

    Wanted the ceramic grey or SS space gray but the colors just don’t go with many bands so I went with my usual SS which I like with the cobalt blue band.

    I'm curious if we will see an Apple Watch in 2018 or not. But the sport band loop looks interesting and I imagine will see more colors of those expand as well.

    Apple® Watch Series 3, 42mm Space Gray Aluminum Case with Black/Pure Platinum Nike Sport Loop
    Ships by 10/17/2017 (probably a lot sooner)

    My first watch. I figured after 2 years of letting someone else beta test I'd go ahead and get one now that LTE is an option.

    I have worn watches that are heavy. I mean heavy like 150g. And i am also used to my G shock which weighs 43g with bands. I want my apple watch to be light and scratch resistant. Therefore, i chose aluminum.

    Black SS 42mm. Going to get the black lug replacement kit on Amazon and purchase a few 3rd party leather straps. Can’t wait to get it!
