DjShadow:

 

The Series 5 looks like an S year for the watch, the always on display is really the only new feature I could see.

 

 

 

 

That, and compass functionality in terms of technical updates. Definitely an S year.

Always on without losing battery life is no small achievement.

Different screen tech though - OLED vs Transflective

 

It's like a Pebble vs an Apple Watch  - one was always on, but the other was better to look at from a brightness/depth perspective. Horses for Courses.

 

 

 

Back to the idea of the Cellular model - I just want these to be available in NZ so I can go back to a Stainless Steel Apple Watch...don't like my Aluminium one as much as I liked my Steel...and I have a bunch of watch straps that go better with steel than AL

would you mind posting your source for this? - it is quite interesting and I wasn’t aware it had happened.

We don't have a regulatory body for this in NZ, Apple weren't aware of this until recently...

We do have one in the pipeline:

Was a bit late in ordering and now looking at a multi week wait for the larger band size.

Seriously considered this, but with ECG and LTE missing.. Feeling a bit short changed.

 

Next year should be interesting if this year was anything to go by. The S3 price is very decent. Hopefully the S4 replaces the S3 at half the price. That'd be a quick and easy upgrade!
