    I have a version 3, and I do not see a good reason to upgrade neither to 4 nor to 5.

                Why tf cant they just release a new model every 3-5 years i mean its understandable to upgrade a phone every year or 2 but a watch? You serious... i got the 2nd edition a little less than 2 years ago and it works fine now they in fifth im done like who cares to upgrade their watch every year

                  The 2 tone straps look ridiculous - why have the colour running inside the strap where nobody can see it?

                      I would upgrade but they got rid of series 4, and not offering any trade-in for that... so... will wait to see for next year.

                            Why it's worth to upgrade? One reason: Apple watch series 5 always on display be like KA-CHOW of Lightning McQueen to everyone around you.

                                            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 .

Everything is the latest, greatest, “cool”. 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.
