Series 1?



Looks to me like it's the 1st Generation Apple Watch Sport which is not a series 1 (confusingly)

Series 1 is the second Apple Watch that was released, and the Series 2 came out at the same time as the Series 1 but is a step up from it.

1st generation watches can be considered 'Series 0' if you like.
I really wouldn't bother with these ones, they are pretty slow and lack the important things like GPS and being waterproof. The screen isn't as good either.
I bought my series 1 42mm (this offer being for the smaller 38mm) for £210, I wouldn't got near the original "series 0" at this price tbh
Series 0
Series -1
The gold edition didn't come out at series one start only a few months later

I personally wouldn't buy a watch that ties me into buying a particular brand of phone, there are plenty of quality smart watches that work with various different types of hardware.

​they don't work as well with iOS though - and not everyone swaps and changes every other week. I think the Apple Watch is just about the best implementation of its type. Android Wear is still a bit convoluted and fiddly and Tizen on the Gear S - while nicer than Android Wear (IMO) - still lacks a lot of features when used with an iOS device.

For the record I've owned the Series 2 (waterproof) and Series 0 stainless steel and couldn't tell the difference in terms of speed or screen. Both series 0 and 1 are still water resistant so you're fine getting them wet, you just can't safely subject them to intensive immersion. Never used GPS as I don't run, and to be honest I never used apps other than the built in ones after a while but perhaps if you use a lot of third party apps you might find a benefit in the spec boost in the Series 1 and 2
Is this a series 0 or 1 then?

I'm sure it's a Series 0 (Classic) as I think they refreshed the strap colours when the Series 1 and 2 launched and discontinued this colour (I could be wrong). The biggest killer is the day battery life but it'll be ok for some who want a smartwatch and basic fitness metrics. I didn't miss the GPS as I use a Garmin Fenix 5 for training and events, as a fitness tool the Apple Watch is pretty weak.

Can you tell me where did you buy it please?

Sure, I got it here - it's £199 now actually. They say that it's used, but mine and many other reviewers actually got brand new units - confirmed by checking the details on Apple.
I am buying a series 2 watch, mainly for cardiogram stroke detection, but I'd like to use the GPS for tracking only, is there a free tracking app that just records a gpx track. I have a 5c but I use my android phone for map navigation. Can you record a gpx without carrying the iPhone and upload it to the 5c later.
