    checked out the verges review today like everyone else, now im worried and thinking the space grey might be better than forking out so much for the SS.

    Ugh

    I just skimmed thru the reviews, and didn't watch it..

    Still going with SS Milanese loop . 38mm vs 42mm is still up in the air.

    Now that many are not getting a SS, I will be ordering both, and try it on 10th , and cancel the one I don't need before it ships.

    Don't worry, I'm less excited but will still be getting the SS. I prefer the look for something that is going to be on my wrist all day, every day. :)

    I love the SS :apple: Watch, but I don't think its worth the investment for the 1st gen. I think I'll wait! Thats just my personal opinion.

    The Sport isn't the watch you're looking for. :p

    Everyone keeps acting like the bands are going to expire with the watch. What I mean is that I'm getting the stainless steel one because I like the way the bands look better for the stainless steel (yes you can get the same ones for aluminum but I don't like the way the look).

    When I sell my apple watch next year, I'll sell the main part of the watch and the sport bands, and then keep my stainless steel link to use with the new stainless steel watch.

    They won't fit, the band connector will have to be redesigned from the ground up due to Gunk Build Up Bands Get Stuck -gate.

    Haha..good luck with that plan. How many times did iPhone accessories become obsolote due to change of the size or connectors? I bet watch2 will have a slimmer size and the v1 bands will not be compatible.

    No chance. Remember the 2nd gen will be geared more towards attracting new customers rather than upgraders. Once Apple have got everyone on board the ecosystem, then they can start making changes to the design that aren't backwards-compatible, but they won't do it so early on while the watch is still establishing itself.

    I'm beginning to sense a theme after seeing all these reviews. They almost *all* mention slowness and frustration and awkwardness. I dunno, it's not making me feel great about pre-ordering. :confused:

    So what happened with the iPhone 3G? you couldn't even use the dock which came with the original iPhone. What most people still don't get about apple is that they dont give a single **** about futureproofness. Investors don't just buy apple stock everytime a new product gets out. I bet apple gets a lot of money from accessory manufacturers just to change design slightly, so you can throw your overpaid stuff away.

    Not everyone: The Edition customers are downgrading to stainless steel.

    Both of them :)

    LOL

    I wonder, what's cooler - to drive a Dodge Neon while wearing The Edition With $7K strap or to drive a Mercedes wearing The Sport. (assume for a moment that the total $$ in each case is the same.) Hmm.. choices choices :D

    Driving a Neon is less cool than driving any scooter, or hitch hiking with The Edition.

    To match the total price, you'd have to hitchhike with The $17K Edition on each wrist! :D

    This was my plan too but I was always wondering whether they would work with the next version. I feel like they should, especially the stainless steel ones because those last ages. I really wish we knew, for certain.

    As it stands I'm ordering SS w/ white sport band, a link bracelet, and a Sport w/ blue band. Gonna have to let experience decide at this point.
