Still rocking my Stainless Series 0, and was planning on upgrading this fall, assuming a Series 4 release is in the near future. (Best Buy’s sale would be a strong indicator).

But the prices on these are fantastic. What to do?? :eek: Buy now or wait?
Prices like these don't come around often. Series 4 Brand New could cost a lot more. New bands too?

So angry! I purchased the exact model I wanted from BB's online store last Thursday for $75 off and now they have it for $100 off. Ugh. I can't return it, because there's the $35 restocking fee. Is there any way I could get the extra $25 dollar discount?
They have price protection, so you should be able to call and get a credit.

Thank you so much. I realize it's only $25 ($26.?? with the tax), but I'll make it go a long way. So yes, you're my savior for today. For the record, I wasn't even on the phone 15 minutes. Thanks again.

If I get the LTE model, but never use or activate it, does this version of the watch still eat battery more than the regular version?
“Still?” My series 3 Apple Watch with cellular does not eat battery particularly fast. I can last about two days without requiring a recharge.
