Not a terrible deal but prices are gonna drop more since Series 2 is discontinued - Series 3 processor is 70% faster and isn't that much more

From your CNET article:

"Specs: The Apple Watch 3 promises 70% faster performance and 85% better Wi-Fi performance and 50% better wireless energy efficiency. It also includes an LTE cellular connection for the first time and an altimeter for elevation data during outdoor activities."

To illustrate, I'll be upgrading from an original AW, and docked apps loaded less than a sec faster with Series 2. Non-docked apps took about 5-8 sec less on S2, but still took 3-4 s to open. If anyone cares to see comparison with the 3, quote me and I'll respond after picking it up tonight.

Not a bad price but isn't sufficiently lower to me to justify getting it for $274 after GC vs $359 for Series 3. There will prob be a lot lower prices on it getting closer to Black Friday.

I'm interested in your feedback. I have an original AW and hope the S3 is fast enough to make it worth the upgrade...

Just a brief post because I'm about to go for a run. Love it! So much faster than old one, and very noticeably faster than my (albeit brief) experience with Series 2.

80 more for LTE. I think it worth the price.

Are the series 2 ceramic back? If so, if you want a ceramic back ( and can live with noticeable speed difference) & w/o LTE, I'd say these are a better buy for the frugal.
