                            What color is the band at 1:33?? It looks teal, but looking on there’s no green option, but pine green. 🤔

                                  Im about to buy my first ever Apple Watch, but im not sure if im going for the 4 or 5 series. I do like the watchface alot more on the 4 than the 5 (which i feel is very important). And i dont think that i will notice or use the new upgrades on the 5. Which one do you think i should go for?

                                        I am laughing because apple products . They are eating your guys money ! I don't understand why people are so crazy about apple products . Do they look the same as the previous models? yes . What about the iphones and Ipads ? Yes all the same just a little change here and there . So why do you have to keep chasing for the new versions and throw your money away ? Think about it . your life is still the same as 50 years ago when none of these existed .

                                              I like that my series 3 screen isn’t always on. That said, the series 4 is on sale now and it’s basically the same as the 5.

                                                  The always on feature is a game changer for watch, I’m surprised this isn’t being highlighted more.

                                                    Not sure, yet. My Series 3 LTE runs still very well and the performance is acceptable. I’m waiting for new iPad Pro models first.

But what of the people who swallowed the line and bought the S series? I guess that wasn’t good enough to keep manufacturing when they aren’t selling. Is Apple Insider owned by Apple? SMH it’s a watch.

                                                                                  It seems like the only difference between 4 and 5 is always on display feature, everything else largely remained the same. Don’t see point of upgrading for anyone owning the 4 model. Also, I’m concerned about battery life with Always on Dsplay enabled.
