As the ‘ceramic/Edition’ offers nothing over the stainless with sapphire glass, or even the Sport (in terms of hardware) other than bragging rights over the plebs who have the other two lesser versions, I would have to say it’s cold.

It’s also a generation old so you can’t even play that card vs. series 3 owners.

To a high-end Watch collector/consumer, material always trumps product age. Ceramic Apple Watch is a work of art, right alongside (and I'd say even better than) any £5k-10k Watch.

This is laughable.

What kind of complete fool would pay more for a product made from a cheaper material!??

I like to call this the "idiot tax"

Sorry but I don’t agree with that. I own a number of Swiss watches (nothing too fancy or high-end) and I don’t believe you (as a collector/consumer) can seriously consider the ceramic Edition a collectible. It’s not a work of art, like any smartwatch it is disposable, this is conspicuous consumption at its worst - a proper timepiece will likely outlast you or I, this thing has 2-3 years tops before the battery renders it useless. The only time I’ve chosen a higher-end model was for my Garmin Fenix where the Sapphire glass was a worthwhile upgrade for the scratch resistance (and to a lesser extent the WiFi) but I know this has finite life.

I wouldn’t judge someone for wearing a ceramic Edition Apple Watch if that’s what they want. I probably would be annoyed if someone made a point of trying to shove it in my face to show me it was better than the lesser models. Yes the stainless models scratch, but then some would say that adds character to a product that is virtually soulless otherwise (compared to a proper timepiece.
Love this watch but way out of my price range, unfortunately!, has any one seen any sales on the cheaper versions at all pls?

The Nike Sport (series 2) version has been on offer many times recently for around £240-280 from memory. It does everything this one does.

In a few years this will be obsolete landfill like all consumer electronics.
By the way, would you like to buy some magic beans??

Your point is well acknowledged, but understand that there is personal predilections and a niche market for everything. I don't know if you've worn or tried the Ceramic Apple Watch yet, but I'd recommend to do so if you haven't. There's a reason why Tissot or Rolex exist in the same market as Swatch, because people like choices and some have more money to splurge than others. On the software and (tech) hardware side, Apple Watch Ceramic may mimic the performance of a Stainless or a Aluminium Watch, but it gets its own character (and ages, if not as beautifully as a Stainless Watch, in its own way) through time (ha! *pun*). I really like the material because its tougher than Stainless in real world usage, as my wrist deals with this unpredictable world where doors and railings conspire to damage my Watch.

Ofcourse, everyone is entitled to their opinion and I respect it, but I truly believe that Ceramic Watch has to be used to understand its practicality (in addition to its luxury aspect). Plus, please consider that this 'luxury' tier of Watch is not as absurdly expensive as Apple Watch Edition variants of first generation. At the end, I'd like to add that even if this lasts for 2-3 years, I think that if someone who owns it and likes to collect watches, is very unlikely to trade it in for a new one.

Apple Watch Series 2 was discontinued to make way for Series 3, though you can still grab a Series 2 on clearance at most places. You can also get AppleCare+ for a Series 2, even if it was discontinued, you can avail warranty for upto 2 years from the date of purchase. Plus, please consider that Apple does not drop repair support for devices until upto 6 years after discontinuing them.

Gold Series 3 [Rose Gold and Gold were combined to form a 'gold' color for Series 3] (model released September 2017) is available on sale for £300, Rose Gold Series 2 is available for somewhere around £240. The difference between the two is of processor speed and music streaming functionality (both of which are specific to Series 3).

Ridiculous comparison.

I took my 27 year Rolex in for service, it's now as accurate and as timeless as it always was, I can still use this for the rest of my life. I paid £2,500 for it in 1990 I had It valued last year at £5,000.

Try getting this junk serviced in 27 years time when it's current equivalent is milled from solid unobtainium and 100x more capable, a quarter of the thickness with weeks of battery life.

The way you're pouncing on each and every comment just because YOU don't want to buy this, its hard to imagine if you're even 27 years old yourself. Your opinions and emotions were registered in the first comment that you made, now you're just trying to seek attention, like a classic troll would.

Each and every comment? Really? Go back and count how many comments there are and how many I actually commented on.

Look at the temperature nobody but you thinks this is a deal......

Your hostility towards anyone that disagrees with your unique opinion is rather bizarre and likely subsidising the extremely low temperatures.

If you bought this, then fine it's your money, but please don't try to justify your stupidity with me.

Anyhow it's nearly Christmas. Merry Christmas and enjoy your new watch.

I don’t really want to ‘take sides’ but it’s a valid point - the ceramic Apple Watch does exist very much so for people that want to tell people they have the ceramic version which is ‘better’ than the other two. The stainless version has a ceramic sensor assembly same as the ceramic version does and that’s the only part that’s in contact with your wrist. Not that I’m advocating Apple differentiates between them on a hardware level by forcibly disabling features to encourage upgrading but there is literally no difference.

Yes - I have worn both and yes, I do therefore feel as though I am in a good position to pass opinion without coming across bitter or jealous. My day-to-day watch is a Garmin Fenix 5s Sapphire, it’s a real fitness watch, it does most of the smart stuff I want and it lasts more than a day (about 2-3 weeks) and more importantly it’s round (not square) and it has a 47mm bezel which makes it similar to most magnum sized Swiss watches and is therefore the ideal size for me.

There isn’t anything wrong with you defending this as it’s your post but I think the constant comparisons with Swiss watches of any sort is just wrong - you can call a crafted Swiss watch a work of art, a collectible and look after it and it’ll last a lifetime. No matter how much you mollycoddle this (or a Garmin Fenix), it will be rendered obsolete by the battery within and is therefore as disposable as a cheap Casio or a Fitbit - it serves its purpose then it’s not much more. You may keep it once it’s worn out but it’s intrinsic value is not much.

Finally, in terms of durability, I have heard that if you ‘clonk’ this hard enough on railings or other things, you can crack the casing whereas the stainless or aluminium ones just dent.
