Also keep in mind that sapphire crystal is only offered in series two stainless or above , so you are looking at at least$550.

Stainless steel is significantly heavier than the aluminum version.

Size wise, most men prefer the 42mm.

Personally I picked up a first gen 42mm stainless steel with Milanese band and Apple Care plus for around $200 and gotta say i really like it except for no always on feature and is slow to open apps.The second gen is supposed to be much faster, but getting one specd to what I want would be $700 so I opted for the used first gen option.
Um... I mean, I already bought it via Apple store and they just notified me that it's on the way. So, they said I will get it on Friday.

Re: Will you be getting iWatch?

I haven't had time to go get the new Nike version. Hoping tomorrow or Saturday.

I see Nike did some updates to their running club app. Thank god. It is useless now after the AW software update. The update does include stand alone GPS for AW2.

Re: Will you be getting iWatch?

Wow...between the watch update and the Nike update, the it is fantastic now! Love it.

If the Nike Version AW is even better I'd say it could pull sales from Garmin and other running watches.

Re: Will you be getting iWatch?

Have anyone been to Apple Store workshop where you sit down with them and they teach you how to use Apple products?

I was wondering how does it work? Is it one-on-one or with a group of people who sign up and they give us a lecture?

What's the deal with the 42mm Space Gray? I ordered one at the end of Oct, and it still hasn't shipped...

Re: Will you be getting iWatch?

What's delivery estimate when you ordered? When I ordered mine, it says 3-4 weeks delivery.

I ordered it from abt.com, but it didn't have a delivery estimate. They have it listed as a preorder. I'll try to be patient. I just hate waiting, once I've decided to get something...

Re: Will you be getting iWatch?

Got this email today... :-(

Thank you for your order. We are writing to keep you updated on the latest development in regard to the status of your pre-order for Apple Watch Series 2 - MP062LL/A. We have been informed by Apple this model is currently severely constrained and is unable to provide Abt an expected dated of arrival or a quantity for how many we will receive at this time. We are continuing to work with Apple to receive this product as soon as possible. Once we receive updated information we will contact you.

My wife got her Hermes version the other day after some shipping shenanigans. She seems to really love it so far.
