38inch screen?? My wee wrists will never handle that. Heat added for your giant watch!!
Edited by: "nicola_glassford" 5th Oct 2016

Unusable compared to Series 1 model which is just £60 dearer. Better battery life and far superior speed which makes it acceptable to use.

I have used all 3 models, Series 0, 1 and 2 and feel 0 is and was a waste of money. Save up and wait for the newer versions as this is £199 down the pan

This one is oos

Bought one off the last currys deal but it's going back, slow and pretty limited

Need a bigger one 42" size watch

​Next year's model is going to be more streamlined and is rumoured to only be 36"

Screen protectors are notoriously difficult to get on without air bubbles though (_;)

What are you taking about? There are only two versions. Series 1 (original one ) and series 2, the one just released.... I have the one originally released (bought on release day) and it works perfectly on the latest watch os

Do let us know how that pans out. You really couldn't have picked a worse place to buy it if you think you're getting a refund on an opened, functioning product.

Nope. Serie 1 is a new one just released with serie 2.

Serie 1 = original Apple Watch (let's call it serie 0) with processor of Serie 2.

Serie 2 = Newest Apple Watch with GPS and waterproof

I would also avoid 'Serie 0'

The original series 0 (this one) is far from unusable. With the latest OS3 there was hardly any difference between this & the series 1.

I love it when people think they know what they are on about.

Since the latest iOS update the series 1 watch is 100% faster and more responsive. I had stopped using mine due to the lag and slow speed but really impressed since the update

Series 1 or series 0? Because series 1 is an upgraded series 0 with a faster processor

Well I have an original series 0 & my wife has just bought a series 1 so, I stand by my comment :-)

Junk on your wrist.

There are 3 versions. Series 1 is the first Apple watch with improved processor. Series 2 is fully waterproof, GPS and bigger battery.

You basically have the beta "get it out there" version (Series 0). Don't worry, so do I.. I feel a bit miffed paying over £500 for a watch that is now considered slow and useless.. I'm considering selling it and going back to a regular watch, because we'll have this problem every 12-24 months.

I don't mind doing this with a phone, not so much a watch.

Nice contribution there mate

I'm with you on this brother.

Like how all those who haven't don't their research are mocking sparklehedgehog who is in fact totally correct. This isn't helped by Apple having useless nomenclature (anyone remember 'the New iPad' that wasn't new after just a few months being replaced by the iPad with Retina Display!) - there doesn't appear to be a good way of telling apart Series 0 and 1 products, Series 0 is a good name in this case for the older 2014/5 model with single core SoC.

I have series 0 with os3 and find it very usable. Apps load instantly from the dock. Instantly as in no lag at all. Ok, you can only have 10 in the dock, but how many Watch apps do you use?!

For the price this is a great piece of kit.

My original (series 0) is working fine - not unusable as suggested.

No, there are 3 series. The original watch launched last year is effectively "series 0". The new Entry level one this year which is series 1 has better internals than last years series 0 even though its being marketed as a similar model. The main difference is the 1 features an upgraded dual-core S2 chip compared to the 0.

'totally correct' ? I agree, taking opinion aside.

I'd disagree that the first gen (series 0 seems the accepted term) is unusable. Since watch OS3 has been installed it's improved immensely. I've got a Series 0 and have tried the 1 & 2 and I'm still more than happy to keep hold of this one for now. I've no need for the features offered in those versions and the speed of the 0 is just fine for me, for from unusable.
Is Series 1 faster? Yes
Is Series one the better choice is you are prepared to add an extra £60? Yes

I thought the Apple Watch was pointless and a waste of money but my wife had a series 2 purchased via work so she gave me her series 0.

I am now finding it an excellent tool as I don't have to keep getting my phone out of my coat or pocket as I can view the text, reminder, calendar event or notification that someone is at my door just by looking at my wrist. It's a lifesaver when driving, plus being able to answer calls with it or dictate a text with Siri.

Also I updated it to watchos3 and compared it to the new top of the range series 2 and it is only marginally slower, it's not worth paying for series 1 or 2 unless you want the GPS tracking or water resistance.

I can't wait for series 4 and hope they have FaceTime on it.

Confused, so which series is this? 0,1,2?

Maybe referring to this as Gen1 and the new models as Gen2 S1 / S2 would keep people happier with the nomenclature. Apple themselves refer to the 1st Gen version as "the original", but it doesn't change the fact that calling a 2nd generation product Series 1 is pretty daft.

A brand new Generation 2 Series 1 38mm is £269 straight from Apple. Personally if I was going to spend £200 on a smart watch then I would consider the extra £69 to have a model approximately 18 months newer was a sensible extra as it will likely mean a similar increase in the supported lifespan.

I was interested but now so confused I think I'll wait.

So to be clear which one is this? Clearly NOT the newest with GPS and waterproof but is it Series 0 (some people saying stay clear) or series 1 (with a faster processor and presumably longer life)

mgk

This is the very first Apple watch released last year (dubbed Series 0)

You dont need to stay clear, I have one and it works fine and is much faster with watchOS 3.

I'm just a little annoyed it's now worth nothing and I paid a lot of money for it... for a first time buyer it's a steal

This is farily useful

Apple done put specs up but am I correct in thinking Series 2 vs Series 1( ie not this deal) are exactly the same processor, meomery ect and basically you are paying extra £100+ for GPS and Waterproof?
Edit - will correct myself - no series 2 has a better processor than series 1 - it is stated on the page I linked

The Apple marketing around iWatch has become a PR disaster like Samsung batteries


Personally it has a processor, who needs more power ? you are not watching 4K videos...but if we can sell you a upgrade of course we will.

Which is how they should have marketed it, Apple W15 & W16 it is one model a year (so far), not a multiple iPhone release.

The editions should have been

W16
W16 Nike
W16 Hermes
W16 Plus(?)

Putting the Apple top 'Edition' watch name above Nike and Hermes makes no sense from a marketing perspective when the Apple one is the entry.

You have all 3 models and you only think you wasted money on one of them..



No i had series 0, sold it to get series 2 as was way too slow and series 2 is how the first one should've been. Series 1 my wife has.
