    @charlyee

    Shouldn’t you have your Series 4 watch by now?

    Btw, the Face ID works great on the golf course!

    I would have if I had ordered one.

    I was out of the country for 3 weeks (will be back this weekend), still not convinced that a 3 to 4 is worth the upgrade.

    Ah, yes. I remember that your impulse buying was thwarted at the airport or train, or something.

    I admit, my decision to go from 3 to 4 was last minute, finalized by how much money I got for my old watch.

    But I’m glad that I did. The new watch faces, exclusive to 4 and the slimness are nice new features. Plus the slightly screen and workout features.

    I only live once, and am old enough to be able to use the 911, did you fall feature too!

    But yeah, my wife is happy with the 1.

    That is a very cool looking display. What is the 6 inside the compass? and the 46 is 46th parallel north?

    I am guessing the 43-52 is the temperature range and 46 the now temperature.

    Yes the display is neat.

    As Charylee said. Today’s temperatures range forecast with the current temperature.

    The 6 is the wind speed in mph, and the wind direction. Little blue triangle on the compass points.

    Of course you can change any of those items to be want you wish.

    Charlyee, excuse me and my apologies for my shameless attempt to excite and renew your impulse buying genes for a new watch.

    Ha ha, too funny vf. You did partially succeed, I looked at availability and delivery options at Apple and BB.

    At the Apple Store, $150 for my watch and delivery 11/19-27. That’s not exactly “instant gratification”.

    I guess I lucked out. This afternoon it showed available for pickup at the store, so I went, traded my AW 3 in for $125 and picked up the new one.

    Now I look at it and the pickup is 11/28 and delivery 11/20 - 11/28.

    Thank you and yes so far I really like it.

    Very good timing! No pun intended

    I got the space grey and the blackish ( has slight color flecks on it ) Velcro type band. Sports loop. 44 mm

    You?

    I got the white aluminum in 40 mm with the white sports band.

    Since Apple didn’t want the band (or the charger), I now have 3 bands and using the new watch with the Fog from last year. I think Fog more closely matches the case color of the watch.

    Question for you, do you use the Moon complication?

    Here is my latest watch face.

    An interesting observation:

    I set my watch on top of my phone which was sitting on the counter. My watch alerted me with 166 pulse rate.

    I would have expected it to not read anything and keep the last reading.

    The only thing I can think of is maybe there is some inherent buzzing in the phone that it read.

    Perhaps it was just separation anxiety?

    Any ideas?



    PS: Ordered the Seashell Sports Loop, should be delivered tomorrow.

    I think the Sports loop is the nicest casual band. Very secure and light. Not sweaty like the sports rubber band. I found my knock off magnetic band always loosens up.

    I think the 166 pulse rate is actually an error code. Means ‘ your watch is on top of the phone’ . I have seen stories from China about apple watches on toilet paper rolls giving reasonable pulse rates. Who knew?

    Yep, I like the Moon complication. But don’t ask me what the numbers mean.

    I really do love this watch. Especially the new thinness and displays.

    Curious. I got $175 for my watch. Do you think it is because my watch was the larger one? Or the ding you had on your watch?

    The trade - in value came up as $125 when I went through the motions on the Apple Store app. Since they hadn’t seen the watch, I am guessing it is because your watch was larger. I was actually expecting lower than $125 when they saw the dings.

    Ahhh. Okay. Makes sense.

    Moon complications. I’ve been lazy. But I realize my first attempt to understand the numbers was undermined by Apple.

    Two screen shots from this morning, only 45 minutes apart. I knew the first number would be moonrise or moon set. In this case, 2:01 pm matches the correct moonrise for my location. Could not figure out the second number. Online others are clueless too. It didn’t match duration of moon visibility ( moon set is 12:32 am); 5 hours too short. Nor time to moon rising.

    But now it changed!!! I guess it is slow to update, hence the mystery. So now it seems more like the sunset, sunrise complication. First is time OF next event(moonrise); second is TO next event (same moonrise).

    Except, the second number doesn’t update often. So be careful. I had to switch watch screen back and forth for it to update. It stayed the same number for 20 minutes!

    @viewfly,

    I decided to put the moon in one of the circles so I can only see the picture. My problem was I got the watch on New Moon and it seemed like it was pretty much completely unlit until about 5 days later.

    [​IMG]

    I got my sports loop and do like how it looks and the color is perfect. However it seems to be a bit itchy. Also since the size is variable I am fiddling with it more than I had to with my other bands.

    I am glad I upgraded and thanks for rekindling my impulse buying.
    PS: I wish it was 44 here
