      William Parenteau Yup, though I would guess that they might have tweaked the clock speeds and power management but that would be all...

      If you check on Apple's website, the S5 chip has the same performance as the S4 does (2x faster than the S3). It seem that the S5 processor is simply a rebranded S4.

    Finally the Apple Watch series 5 is out, which means that the series 4 will be cheaper. Now I can finally afford a used series 1

    ECG, is an excellent feature. New watch faces, fall detection. Wheelchair mode for me is worth it alone.

    I have a Series 2 that i bought used from one of my co-workers when he upgraded to the 3. I'm not sure if I want to get the 5 or just wait to see what the 6 has in store.. honestly the only thing I really use it for is to pause my music and Apple Pay, lol

      Ron Hayes it’s a preference but you’ll have an increase difference on the speed, I had the series 3 and I love it. Especially the always on display.
      I know the series 2 can be a bit slow, but if you only need it for those 2 things then you might wait until it goes on sale lol

    I’m using the series4 and I am really good with it, I don’t see a real reason like you said to really upgrade to the series5. I feel like the always on display will just drain the battery even more. Thank you for your honest review

    I don’t see a strong use case for always on display. The watch already turns on when you look at it. Always on is just a nice thing to have, more on cosmetics than actual usefulness

    I’m using my series 4 stainless steel gold watch and it’s still greet to me. I have it running on watchOS 6 And everything is faster now and more accurate like when I left my wrist to look at the time it turns on right away so just because that always on display on the series 5 it’s not that serious so I’d rather stick with my series 4 for’s like apple made the same thing twice the phones are the same and the watches are the same and just changed like 3 things of them all lol smh oh well

      Zachary Donnelly don’t waste your money on Apple Watch it’s useless trust me imagine charging your watch every day or two . The screen is too small you can’t do anything with it also it doesn’t look good at all got one last year it’s just collecting dust only used it the first week that I bought it

    If you don’t have a Apple Watch then most definitely get the series 5 hands down! I have the iPhone XS Max and the series 4 watch and I’m not upgrading to a iPhone 11pro Max and a series 5 watch! For what? I paid a great amount already not too long ago for both of these and they are still new and great and not much of a difference for me to upgrade!

    I currently have the series 3 Apple Watch. Originally I wanted the 4 but it was a little out of my price range. I will be upgrading to the 5 simply by I wanted the 4 and they discontinued it, and the five is the same price as the 4 sooo yeah

  • Gen MT

    Just pre-ordered! I originally started with the series 0, then upgraded to series 4. But like you, I really needed the “always on” feature for work. So I’m selling my 4 and ordered the 5.

  • Lillian

    Not upgrading from the series 4 anytime soon. My Apple Watch features that I value are the workout app, BT which allows me to use it as a remote when listening to BT headphones and phone-free wireless. Those key features haven't prompted me to upgrade. Plus the trade in value for Apple Watches is low.

      Nick Colonello I’m going from the first gen to the fifth. I’d say it’s worth it if your willing to spend $400+

    It’s inconvenient to lift up your arm to tell the time?? Really? damn..we have gotten lazy... next y’all will be crying how the Apple Watch isn’t sending the time directly into your brains cause it’s inconvenient to have to look at the watch to tell the time ....

    Here is what pisses me off about iwatch, you need to buy latest just to get “new” watch faces? Seriously? It feels like it defeats the whole purpose of buying a digital smart watch.

    I have the series 4 and not gonna upgrade. The only features I want before upgrading is letter music play on the watch itself and allow live wallpapers on the screen. Otherwise, Next

    I have a series 2.. I just check the time and temperature for the most part. Most people don't even use 80% of the features on the watch. I'm waiting for my series 2 to die.

    I ordered my first Apple Watch, in space black stainless steel with the Milanese loop. I spent 800+ up front and hope that this will last me at least 2 years if not even longer. I think it made sense to get the nicer option since it’s more personalized and what not.
