    Apple Watch Series 7 Buyers and Owners Thread

    Apple Watch continues to be my absolute favorite product from the company. Here are my favorite faces... Exercise is one of the most important things in my life and this is set up to show the closing of my RINGS when I use the activity app to monitor my Peloton and treadmill workouts...

    THAT is really nice, Dave. I take all my photos in landscape so I need to take a portrait of my dogs and do what you did.

    https://www.cultofmac.com/759155/no-apple-watch-8-redesign/ Surprisingly, happy to hear this. Don't need anything motivating me to buy the 8th watch in a row. I was hoping to take a year off.

    Hey Dave! Wanted to pop in and say congrats on your new watch. I ordered one for my girlfriend as a Christmas present. At least as of Friday, deliveries were promised Dec. 14-24. Got her the blue aluminum. However, I am sure that delivery estimate changes quickly -- especially when...

    Good Morning, Ted! I have owned nothing but Stainless Steel watches. I buy a new one every year. It's more expensive but I buy them for their durability. I used to work in a warehouse and knock that watch face against metal cages and equipment. It took a beating but the glass never even...

    I had to go to the Apple store today. It's something I rarely do, but the only way to exchange my solo loop band for a smaller size. The store was somewhat busy when I entered. However, I must say I was immediately impressed that there were young Apple employees actively watching the front...

    Apple Watch Series 7 Buyers and Owners Thread

    I share my impressions with others who feel that the Series 7 is not a major upgrade over the 6. I simply did it for trade-in value which means I essentially spent money to save money. That's never a good thing. However, I did immediately notice that the watch face imagery is noticeably...

    Congrats, Sam! Looks very nice! Waiting for my SS delivery, though USPS always delivers to me late.

    Huh? Play into Apple's game? I just want a watch on release day. I don't consider it game playing. I think this year was very unique in that Apple had limited supply. That's why they didn't let you choose the device in advance of launch. It would have made it more difficult for people to...

    Yeah, I got one, but what a mess! The fact that we couldn't look at the watches and band configurations prior to launch made things very difficult. I had to scramble because I immediately found the Graphite Stainless Steel watch I wanted but it no longer comes standard with a sport band. It...

    Word on the street is that Apple is not putting up configurations of the Series 7 for you to look at and mark as favorite prior to the product launch tomorrow morning. It looks like the company is trying to make it more difficult to order the watch with the current supply restraint.

    Apple Watch Series 7 Buyers and Owners Thread

    I'm a little miffed that a few days prior to preorder, Apple has not put the new series 7 watches in their online store to browse and mark as a favorite. I am wondering if they are trying to make preordering more difficult due to supply constraints. Hopefully, the watches will appear in the...

    Official announcement that watches will go on sale Friday @5am PDT. As of right now, Apple is not allowing you to go into store app and pick out the watch you want to add as a favorite but that could change within hours/days. https://9to5mac.com/2021/10/04/apple-watch-series-7-orders-start/

    Hey Clinton! I have been paying $10 extra per month for cellular for years now and I can't justify why I do it. There have been a few times I have accidentally left my iPhone behind when leaving the house and it has been great to still get phone calls or Internet related alerts on my watch...

    Ted, that's a great picture! Thanks for sharing it. I don't think the 7 is going to give you increased battery life over the 5. Reason being, with each new iteration of the watch Apple has added battery-draining features such as "always on" and "increased brightness" to the watch without...

    Dave, I keep saying this: I think the Apple Watch is the best product Apple has ever made. Additionally, I love the fact that they have devoted themselves to making it better and more health-functional with each new iteration. We are very close to getting a non-evasive blood sugar...

    Sorry to hear this. It seems like your S3 watch has reached its end of life, that is unless, a software update or complete reset and re-install would fix it. I am kind of surprised how long these watches can last. I gave my series 1 and 2 watches to friends and they still work fine and hold...

    Ted, of course nobody outside of Apple knows what is going on. I would, however, go out on a ledge and say the rumors about manufacturing issues with the watch are true. I say this only because the rumors are rampant and coming from the supply chain. These are the same rumors that persisted...

    I wouldn’t recommend it. I do it just because there is a 40% trade-in value. Glad you like the watch, David. I keep saying it’s the best product Apple has made. I feel the same way. The phone and MacBook Pro are more important upgrades to me right now.

    Perhaps, out of all the Apple products I have owned, the watch is my favorite device. I think it’s the best product Apple ever made. I have bought every single series watch since its inception and I am excited by the re-design that is coming with Series 7...
