Nothing the average consumer needs to worrry about apart from planned obsolescence.. unless your a dr or self employed or have a massively chaotic life. It wil end up in draw or on ebay... mrs is doing her doctorate on a 2007 imac, so you dont need the latest gear.You'll never catch up with the latest tech nor need the extra functions unless its used for a specific reason.
I paid 229 for the 42mm. A good watch for the mrs.
Yeah, when you see them side by side it is a big difference. I didn't think I'd be that fussed about the always-on display either, but when you're doing any kind of fitness activity it's really handy being able to see what's happening on the screen without needing to flip your wrist about or tap the screen to wake it up
Price drops due to new watch I hope ?
I picked up the S3 a few weeks back and it really doesn't look outdated, it performs excellently and supposedly the upcoming OS7 update makes the S3 even faster. There's only so much technology a smart watch can offer IMO and I didn't feel that the S5 offered £200 of additional value/features for the price. If you're desperate for ECG, a slightly bigger screen or the hand washing feature (jk) then it's an easy choice. Either way, I would avoid the 38mm, as it's very small, unless you have extremely skinny wrists.
