    Yep. Getting one of these. The series 5 upgrade wasn’t enough to quite push me over the edge, but those features plus the Oximeter will part me with my money. I think I’ll get the new woven band to go with. Looks comfy and convenient.

    All impatient today. Already ordered the above. Shipping estimate is middle of October; so impulse does not equal immediate gratification.

    During the purchase process Apple guides you through picking the watch band size for the new Braided Solo Loops. You even get a printable tool. I used this. It has a credit card sized rectangle on the page so you can make sure it printed correctly.

    Did get a $140.00 trade in on my Series 4 watch.

    Apple also introduced the Apple Watch SE, a lower cost option as well as keeping the Apple Watch 3 in the lineup.

    Trying to decide between the space gray Nike with black sports loop or the new blue with the charcoal sport loop. Any thoughts!

    The Nike+ version has some Nike themed watch faces which include a complication for directly launching the Nike+ app. They also come with Nike themed watch bands. Other than these extra features they act just like the standard version.

    Me too, this entices me to upgrade to the six. I like the braided bad too but $100 more for that band seems a bit high. Still debating. Will probably be some copycat bands soon

    Anyone know why the create your own feature is not letting you buy the Apple Watch?

    The store might be overloaded. I used this option and it worked for me (though my final choice is almost indistinguishable from one of the standard choices.)

    I’ve done exactly the same as Twerppoet today. Just placed an order on the UK Apple Store for a 44mm Series 6 (Space Grey, GPS) to replace my Series 4 (same colour).
    Got a delivery date between the 29th Sept-1st Oct so only a couple of weeks to wait.

    I too put my Series 4 in for Trade-In for £135.00

    I was hoping to stave off an impulse to upgrade from Apple Watch Series 3 GPS+Cellular to Series 6. Is Series 7 one or two years away?

    Apple almost never makes announcements about future products, so it is not guaranteed, but so far there have been new Apple Watches every year since they were introduced.

    Quick question? Can the “always on display” be shut off in the new Apple Watch 6? And if yes does it then use the raising arm motion to activate the display. I’m coming from an Apple Watch 4 and I’m quite comfortable with the way the display works...

    To turn off the always on display, open the Watch app on your iPhone and go to Settings>Display & Brightness>Always On and turn off the switch. The display will now behave just like the Apple Watch 4 and earlier and turn on when you raise and turn your wrist.

    Thank you scifan57. I’m sure I’m going to order the six just deciding what band.

    Ordered the “6” with the new black solo loop. Not sure if I’ll like the band but it’s different. Supposed to have the first week of October. I can’t wait.

    You can use it with your existing bands as well.

    Yes I know and that will be my backup in case I measured wrong. I have several bands so I guess it’s not a big issue.
