I'm waiting for the 6 - I have a 3, the 5 is compelling, but I have a feeling the 6 will have a few extra health bells and whistles.

Well, that's if I have a job in a few months ;)

Waiting for a redesign or drop in OS support, whichever comes first.

although it’s a good deal for first time Awatch owners.
My 4 is more than sufficient for anything I want/need. I suspect I will keep it until the battery tanks, or it gets smashed.

I've had it over a year, and it has been a good product...

Seems like a good deal, not sure if it's a 'great' deal though. I'm on S4 ... skipping out on the S5 and will wait to see what comes of 2020 before I make any jumps.
You’re right, it’s not a ‘great deal’, especially since you are a Series 4 owner, I would not upgrade to the Series 5, unless you really want the AOD and compass. Plus, we’re already approximately five months from the Series 6 potential launch, which is likely to include native sleep tracking and other additional features.

I love my 5. I can't believe they added the biggest feature to such an otherwise iterative model though

I went from a 0 to a 1 to a 4, and was very tempted by the 5 for the AOD, but I too am holding out until the 6 as the lack of a faster CPU or different sensors [other than compass] didn't make the upgrade worthwhile. I rarely jump on yearly upgrades for things, but the Watch is a life changer.

That said, I wonder if series 6 will be delayed until closer to the winter - if the iPhone is delayed until then, and iOS 14 is delayed until then, I could see the Watch being delayed too [since watchOS 7 would require iOS 14]. Regardless, I am very much looking forward to the series 6. If one is on anything lower than the 4, I highly recommend this Amazon deal, as the CPU is lightning fast and makes using the device a joy.
