I ordered the titanium version for both me and wife. LTE quite useful when I work out, so I donít need to bring my phone along to the gym, so I donít have to keep checking whether I left my phone somewhere or someone take it.

So means i can whatsapp wechat make phone calls without my phone? Also did u use tempered glass or case to protect your AW (if u own previous gen?)

If i get non lte version does that mean if my phone got whatsapp notification i won't be able to receive them?

Looking to buy my first AW

Well sort of. The limitation is that WhatsApp donít have native app for watch. Need third party app which is like web app for WhatsApp. But not very ideal. Telegram is better on watch as got native app. Yes you can make phone calls without the iphone nearby, and no need headphones,

I have never used any protection for my AW since generation 1 to 4 ... No problems .. Unless you are the Super rough type.

If you want stainless steel or titanium model then you have only one choice of GPS + Cellular.

You may wanna read this, about 50% over two hours. But this is for series 4, not sure if series 5 battery life is similar.

Well, if you think it's fine to spend $1K+ yearly for a Edition version. Then by all means go ahead.

Functionality wise, all material versions are same. Diff are the weight, material, look, resistance to knocks/scratches.

I'm giving Series 5 a miss as I can't justify AOD alone as an upgrade for the price, and it's also not a critical upgrade.

I'll wait for Series 6 next year, the upgrade should be more significant.

Those on Series 3 or earlier to the Series 5 is a good upgrade - AOD, ECG and a redesigned watch.

Those who aren’t a AW user yet, the S3 is a good model to look at, without spending huge amount of money and to try out the main/basic features on the Apple Watch - Health & Fitness and Notifications.

If you prefer the aesthetics > features of the AW, just go for the stainless steel, and the premium materials.

However, if you are looking to upgrade or change every year, the aluminium will be a better choice, unless you have the budget for premium materials every year.
