Can anyone recommend a decent watch body protector?
I’ve been using this for the last week at work.
Thanks. I think I've convinced myself I don't need cellular. It'd be the £7 on top for me, which would make my bill £17 a month for 10GB of data. I don't have Apple Music or Spotify to make use of that data, which is another benefit of a cellular model that I wouldn't see. Might just have to suck up the long wait time from Apple.I've had my cellular enabled on my 4 now for almost two years and it gets used for similar scenarios as you've mentioned above...I run daily, its only 20 minutes, but it means a phone doesn't need to go with me.
I also occasionally ride locally on a 20-30 mile ride and often don't take my phone on that either, but can of course still be contacted. Every now and then I also pop into town to grab a few bits and again don't take my phone.
My bill a month is only £18 including the watch and phone with 18GB of data....so for me the cost is good enough for me to keep it going...not sure id pay the £7 a month which a lot of new customers seem to have now...but that's just me
Spotify doesnt (yet) work on mobile anyway..and in truth it's just as easy to sync music from your phone to your watch...remember if youre on Wifi you can get messages or calls still tooThanks.

And is £150 offered by Apple worth it? Any thoughts?....I’m still on the fence re a new AW. I currently have the series 4 SB SS but can’t decide between the graphite or the aluminium? You can tell the difference but is it “that” much of a difference to be worth the extra?....
no idea, that said Id expect you to need to let them know as they are expecting a watch from you at some point a quick call/chat with CS should clear it up thoughI’ve ordered the Graphite Stainless Steel with the £145 trade in but have just managed to sell my series 4 for £200. Is it simply a case of jus not sending it to Apple? I don’t have to let them know or anything do I? See this from Apple’s emai;
Apple Trade In
Estimated trade-in value:
Watch Series 4 Stainless Steel 44MM Cellular
You’ll receive a trade-in kit with a box, a prepaid label, and packing and shipping instructions to send back your old device.
I’ve ordered the graphite with Milanese. Have a delivery date of 27th Oct so hopefully will come earlier than that. Sold my series 4 today so might be without a watch for a couple of weeks.Was determined I wasn’t going to upgrade my SS S4 silver this year but was becoming more and more envious of my wife’s Series 5 with screen always on so what the heck.
Now I like really silver, had a space black once but was was a bit worried about graphite but really pleased I went for it and glad I got the matching Milanese.
For anyone that hasn’t seen them side by side this is what they look like as a comparison.
oh and dispite only ordering last Monday for delivery on the 20th, it actually arrived on Friday out of the blue so wait times are not as bad as they may appear. View attachment 1379992View attachment 1379993
Yeah correct Dave it’s sits nicely between the both. That said I’ve actually tried it with the silver and black and both work well too so I’m glad I kept them.I’ve ordered the graphite with Milanese.

I have the black link bracelet and am wondering how it’ll go with the graphite. I think it’ll be OK but how would you compare the SB with the graphite? Also, I had the silver SS series 0 and still have a silver link bracelet. Maybe the graphite will go with both? Seems the colour is in between the Silver and black?
Thanks for that. Been a v expensive year for Apple purchases (is there any other?!). This year I've bought a new iPad Pro (and Smart Keyboard), new MacBook Pro, New AirPods Pro's, now Apple Watch and iPhone 12 to come!!! (good job I'm worth it!)Yeah correct Dave it’s sits nicely between the both. That said I’ve actually tried it with the silver and black and both work well too so I’m glad I kept them.
I found the Space Black watch too black personally whereas the graphite is a nice compromise between the two. In some light it does actually look silver and in other situations black.
i know they are more money and don’t hold their price too well but I just prefer the shine of stainless compared to aluminium and even the titanium.
Still think silver is my personal fave but a good excuse to return to that next time and have a change for a year or so.
