    S3 now,wait for S6?

    I am wondering whether to wait for the 5G AW? Passed up this year but think the S6 might have better timekeeping and responsiveness.

    "Better timekeeping"? Last time I checked, my S2 (or was it the S0?) was doing maybe -0.1 sec/month when NOT connected to online time servers.

    Now, my S4 is certainly more responsive than my S2 was. The 64-bit CPU is a big deal; no other smartwatch has this much oomph. Not exactly sure how much faster it is than your S3, but this new architecture is going to remain relevant for longer.

    Just keep your S3 until you can't stand it anymore, whether the battery gets too old or the latest OS doesn't support it (remember, the S0 ran up to watchOS 4).

    One of my work colleagues has a S4 and it is significantly faster than my S3. Upgrading comes down to disposable income.

    Maybe get a cheap S4 for the EKG, then wait on the S6?
