Oops, I am regretting my decision to get ss gps + cellular.
As someone pointed out that my allergy to aluminum should be addressed now that the whole back is crystal and there should be minimal aluminum contact with the skin.
Dun think I have use for cellular most of the time. Turns on i might only need aluminum gps.
How to change order hah? Can save at least $400.
Comments?

check if there's stock for pickup (or if you don't mind waiting) for the model you want and cancel the SS GPS+Cellular.

Can you show me what do you mean by the aluminium allergy? Because I might have the same problem as you as the skin around the Apple Watch is looking quite bad.

I wash my watch daily especially the back of the watch.
However that area where the metal touches the skin will get itchy and have some rashes over time. I encountered this with Samsung Gear S3 and Apple Watch series 0 aluminum.
After changing to series 2 ss, the problem disappeared and I am even more convinced of the allergy.
I had attempted to get those watch cases that cover the back metallic portion but doesnít seem to work.
Now I am supporter of ss...haha...

i not rich cannot affort SS series. but i have since used Sport seires since S2 with Apple care + if there is any scatches or paint peel off u could try to to exchange it. Tried it 2 times and the genius arranged the exchange.
Sport series is not that heavy like SS or u could use a case if u dont mind the bulk.

btw using gold like ah Beng ah long or China farmers style. Just my own taste
Serious? The scratches on the Apple Watch can be exchanged for a new one?

Apple Watch series 4 in Singapore conform wonít support the heart rate sensor.

Apple Singapore posted a introductory video of the Apple Watch and they never mentioned about the heart rate sensor while the US one have.
I think you are referring the to ECG feature. Not yet approved of course cannot show..

Ah, I have the same problem as you. The area around aluminium caused my skin to itch and tear/bleed.

It's pending HSA approval according to one of the Apple staff.

Don't quote on it, but Singapore governing authorities have been looking for such things for a long time. And with a long standing of approval of Apple products, it's the matter of how fast.

Return if you still have the problem. Show the staff your skin.

Rather you spend on something which doesn't hurt your skin. But having said that, the watch this time around has full crystal on the underside right?

Hi all, want to get my first apple watch, but i've got a few questions to clarify before pressing the order button. lol.

1. If I want to use Apple watch to track my evening runs, do i need to get the cellular version? or GPS 1 will do?

2. if gps version do i have to bring my phone along?

3. Can apple watch open Whatsapp messages? and real emails?

4. Does Apple Watch work with Spotify?

Thanks all! and sorry for the bunch of questions ahaha.
