    Apple Watch First Genertion

    While the series 2 have some nice feature increases, they are not earth shaking. Do you think it is a good idea to purchase a Gen ! watch, as the prices have dropped dramatically?

    Depends on your needs. Is GPS and 50m water resistance worth $100? I think that's what it comes down to.

    It's not a $100, it is more like $180.

    AW 2 and iPhone 7 seem evolutionary not revolutionary. Maybe that will come in 2017?

    With watchOS 3 (and all of its performance improvements) just around the corner, the Gen1 AW will remain a quite capable device.

    I just bought a Sports Gen 1 (Series 0?). Same reasoning as yours.

    The price was great. The same piece in Series 2 would have cost twice as much.

    I do not swim and the only tangible benefit is perhaps the brighter screen in the new models. Series 1 in particular makes very little sense to me since it does not get the better screen or waterproofing. I had a stainless steel Series 2 pre-order which I cancelled.

    With OS 3 coming in 3 days, they will all have the same features and interface. Now if OS 3 slows down the gen 1 watch too much for some reason, I may want to upgrade.

    i took my own advice and went to Best Buy and purchased a Gold Sport watch, great buy at $219.

    Id wait until the series 1 is released with the new chip, but gen 1 will likely be super cheap.
