I'd genuinely buy one if it had android support. Why doesn't apple do this? They'd absolutely destroy the android Wear crap.

As a standalone the Apple Watch, especially the cellular version, is awesome. But without an iPhone/other devices it would struggle to justify the cost.

My wife walked in yesterday with a phone call on her wrist and then popped that call over to our HomePod whilst she got out of her jogging gear.

I added a meeting on my MacBook and all of my devices, including the Apple Watch, updated to reflect that meeting.

There are so many other examples where the Apple Watches strength lies in the close integration it has to the Apple family of products. Yes, many of the native features of the watch will work just fine, but if you're on Android you'll be paying top price to be a second class citizen.

Better to look at the Android alternatives, they're not as good, but they are cheaper and cover most of the needs of the Android market.

This is hot! I’d have rather brought this than the very one which involved a credit check! If only I knew 😩
Excellent price OP, I'm hoping to snag a Series 4 around the £350-380 mark as the always on display and compass doesn't bother me.

Sold out? Not available to collect in any store.
Cheap is chips! - said no one
How come there are never any deals for the silver stainless steel version Doesn’t the black aluminium model just feel like a light bracelet for the price you’re paying
Does the cellular functionalilty make this any better? I currently have the S3 non-cellular and i'm thinking in reality it wouldn't make any difference.....?

A mix of reasons. Many of the best features of the Apple Watch are its integration with Apple services. So iMessage, calendars, phone call hand offs, etc, will not work on Android.

Apple is clearly moving towards the Apple Watch not requiring the iPhone, but even when they remove this barrier it will feel like a second class citizen if used in a household that does not have other Apple devices in place.

Appreciate that the best Smart Watch on the market isn't really open to you, but the new Samsung watch looks quite nice and is cheaper, albeit with some trade offs.

All depends on your requirements, remember that to use the cellular feature you will also have to pay your network around £5 a month for the privilege.

My watch is a Series 1, which is non cellular and my wife has the Series 4 Cellular model. She frequently leaves her iPhone at home and just goes out with the watch. It's such a freedom to still be able to access your messages and be able to make phone calls if you need to without having to take your phone with you.

Paired with a set of Air Pods the Apple Watch is amazing for jogging/working out.

I know that I want a cellular model now, which is why I'm hoping for a good discount on a Series 4.
Edited by: "david_robinson94" 22nd Sep
The S5 cellular has built in free emergency services calling in a host of countries if you’re on holiday or working abroad etc. Perhaps worth considering the jump from the GPS model, even if you don’t plan on paying for the extra cellular plan if that feature appeals to you
I can’t get this code to work
What’s price these days with EE for watch support , Used to be £5 pcm I think with loads of free data and free for so many months I think but that was ages ago.

Always contemplated an Apple Watch but then always change my mind thinking it’s a naff expensive gadget & just use ya iPhone.

Do you really need cellular as most people never go anyway these days without their handset

Still on fence about these it heat from me as any discount on Apple products is good

I don’t see a way to get it delivered and it’s out of stock basically everywhere
Thanks to the poster, this is the third Apple Watch 5 I’ve committed to. Really want one of the Nike bands and ordered a Nike one but it’s 5 week delivery (I’m really impulsive) so I’d also ordered a standard one from John Lewis and had picked that one up but not opened as it didn’t sit right paying £50 more to get to use it 5 weeks early. Now I’ve bought this, cancelled the Nike one, will return the John Lewis one and can buy a strap ‘cost neutral’

I think the Nike one hasn’t officially been released yet hence the wait, although I think it’s coming out in first week of October

Yes, 4th October I believe but I didn’t pre order immediately so it was showing about 5 weeks due to them selling out of initial allocation.

It was only the strap style I was interested in. So when the straps are released I’ll buy one and that’s me sorted

Or a look a like strap...

Worth noting that the actual Nike watch is different as well - not just the strap. The Nike watch has Nike watch faces (in addition to the normal ones). But a normal Apple Watch doesn’t have the Nike faces.

Cheers I’ve had a few look alike ones, they fade and stretch round where they attach to the watch after a while. Though that does lead to an excuse to get a new one.

I have a series 2 Nike one currently, I’m not too fussed about the extra faces tbh, they’re a bonus but not a must have for me.

18 hours of battery life- no thank you
I have the S3 Celluar and I love it, issue is battery life as its starting to dwindle after 2 years. That is the major issue for me, spending £400+ every 2 years doesnt sit well with me.

But, thats the trade off between a traditional watch which does not do much and an apple watch which I love to use (Strava, music, emails, whats app (not great but get notifications)).

I tried using my S3 Cellular for the last 5 months, having got rid of my iPhone 6S due to battery issues. Moved to a Pixel 3.

I wasn't particularly bothered about the notifications type stuff, but what I found was:

1) Could make and receive phone calls through the watch (though only ever did it twice post-run)
2) Apple music worked great without wifi
3) The battery was terrible, probably even more so for not having the phone nearby.
4) I couldn't get text messaging working because I had to disable iMessage when I moved iOS > Android.

I've since ditched the Apple Watch data plan on Vodafone, so I'm back with:

1) Runs/swims/cycling sync at the end of the day when I'm back in range of my old iPhone, which is pretty much permanently plugged in on charge. I use the inbuilt watch apps for exercise, and 'Healthfit' to upload the activities automatically to Strava.
2) If I'm at work and in range of a known wifi, I still get notifications pinging up for eBay, Paypal, and a couple of others. I assume that's because the phone is at home on a different Wifi forwarding them through Apple's servers. Could probably get more notifications if I looked into it.

I realise that's a long reply to a simple point you've made, but I guess it depends how much you need watch < > Android support during the day.

Could you not sell your used watch on for say £100-£200 to make some of this back? If yes it might half the cost of the new version?

Showing in stock in a few London stores can’t quite pull the trigger, I have a mint 38mm series 2 to sell that isn’t getting any newer!

Someone I know, who has more money than sense but everything is relative. Buys apple products new and sell them when the next version comes out. His maths says that beats depreciation.

The S3 is a decent watch, battery life on the new versions will do the same thing until tech changes, screens in particular. No need to upgrade unless yours packs up, or as above you might be in a good depreciation sweet spot. 🏼
Does anyone know how much per month the apple watch plan is on EE, sim only and is it a rolling contract? I cant find the information anywhere on the website. Thank you in advance
Batery:
Low usage up to 1 day
High usage up to 1 day too
Hmm :/

I was having a look, seems to be around £5.00 per month if you already have a contract.

Got me thinking that’s £60.00 a year so own this watch for 2-3 years you’ve added £120 ~ £180 to its cost and for what. I seldom leave the house without my phone.

More food for thought. !

Worst case: they sell more stuff and diversify outside their one trick pony. Worst case: they get people to join the ios landscape from other platforms.

I have a macbook and ipad, and an android phone. They won't get me to use iPhone again. So why not rinse me of my money with a watch that doesn't rely on a device I don't want to use?
Bombs out for me. Only Click and Collect was available. My local store is showing stock (on eBay and Argos.co.uk) but once I try to commit the purchase, I get an error that the listing has expired, out of stock or already purchased

Once it's setup, paired and activated it is (in some respects) a standalone device and my Vodafone SIM moved to my Pixel. As above I do still own my old 6S but it's not used other than syncing watch exercise activity to Strava. Sorry I re-read my post and I can see the 'got rid' may have been misleading but hopefully the rest of the post follows from leaving it paired to an old iPhone that you'd still have access to.

You swipe to bring up the control menu and enable cellular data. The iPhone can then be hundreds of miles away.
