Singtel has not listed the series 6 yet. Hope that they will offer some tie ups and perhaps, some discount on the watch.

Not so fast. It will only be displayed on launch day which is Friday.

Anyone here ordered the Apple Watch 6 with the new solo loop strap ?

What size did you all get ? When you print out the tools to check, does your credit card fit nicely in the rectangular box?

Thanks

Nope. Stick with the sport band.

If you have the cash, definitely titanium.

seems like only a couple more features than series 5, design and size also the same as previous... no big bang change

but the blood oxygen is cool

Design exactly the same as Series 5. So far only differences I noticed is new S6 SoC, 2.5 times brighter screen (AOD) and redesigned back with sensors for the oximeter.

Similarly from Series 4 to 5.....AOD, S5 SoC and built-in compass.

Here are the major changes from Series 5 > Series 6.

- Faster S6 Processor
- 5Ghz Wifi
- U1 Ultra Wideband Chip
- Faster Charging

- Blood Oxygen Sensor
- Always on Altimeter

- Brighter Always On Display
- New Case Colors

Most annual technology changes are not revolutionary, but this update should improve the general experience.

Series 4 and 5 used a SoC based on the Apple A12 (iPhone XS). The Series 6 SoC is based on the Apple A13 (iPhone 11) so there will be a performance jump vs. the Series 4 and 5.

How is gold stainless steel vs titanium? I worry about scratches but the gold stainless steel quite unique

Deciding between Graphite Stainless steel and Space Black Titanium. Guess have to wait for actual photos on how graphite stainless steel look like.

U1 UWB is very important for Airtags. Those who intend to get Airtags, Series 6 is the way to go.
