Is it worth getting the Series 3 GPS first while waiting for the variant in LTE?

Thinking of upgrading my Series 0.

Will be getting the GPS version to replace my series 0. No point getting the LTE version which has lesser battery life if use without the phone.

And now a days every where we go, we will bring our phone along.

Just my 2cents

Hanno, but no new colors. New colors only with LTE models

To me, the color of it doesn't matter. Just need to get nice strap to match it. Going to get Nomad Rugged Strap, look real nice to me.

It seems like the use of esim requires a subscription service paid to Telco. Current rates overseas is about $10/month. Might not be worth it after all

If you use the watch for runs, then LTE model will be quite attractive to upgrade to.
Hate to have missed calls/text during my runs

It’s a question mark when the Apple Watch with LTE would be coming to SG. Just hoping it will be coming soon. Like really soon.

If you try to order from Apple USA and use a forwarding service like Vpost or Borderlinx, he order will initially go though. But a few hours later you might get an email which say “We are unable to complete your order. We do not ship to freight forwarder addresses. Therefore your order has been cancelled. While you may see a pending authorization on your account, you will not be charged and that pending authorization will drop off in accordance with your banks policies. Please contact your bank for an exact timeframe.”

So cellular watch must be carrier supported? Thus, if I buy from other countries the cellular version, cannot use in SG until telco supports? Also does the electronic sim support switching between carriers(assuming carrier support is there)?
