Airport also selling series 2, anybody know the actual pricing also? I'm going on holiday soon, plan to buy instead of on line if cheaper...
i heard it is actually more expensive to rip those tourists off.

makes sense.

but if tourist perhaps can claim the GST refund.

Seems like Series 2 also very popular and most retailers are OOS. Am so glad to be able to grab the last piece on Sat night at iStudio Paragon . Rose Gold 42mm Sports with midnight blue strap.

As for iStudio at airport, confirm it will be cheaper as it is tax free but must (i) be in stock; and (ii) show departure tickets. I bought the extra straps from them last time when I was there. Here is a shot of my Series II with the red strap.

hmmm... i don't have the biggest of wrist i also feel 42mm fits just fine, largely due to its squarish shape.
I went with 38mm mainly cos I'm using as fitness tracker-- Swimming and Cycling. Want something smaller for these activities...if as a result my daily wear becomes smaller than so be it

I'm still considering whether to get series 2 to replace my first gen one as I really like the GPS function. But some said the GPS feature is mainly for workouts/runs and will turn off if your iPhone is with u or connected.

The main thing is that when I'm overseas, I wish to use the GPS in the watch to check local weather and location via a third-party weather app without having to connect to my iPhone. Is it able to do just that?

I think u still need internet access to get weather report rather than gps alone?

That's what I thought too, so it may not be such a good idea to change to the series 2 for me.

Those who want suggest u just place an online order while you search the Apple retailers. The 3-5 week wait time is almost surely to be pulled in

Can we still cancel the online order if it has already been charged but not shipped?
