This Apple Watch series 3 is an awesome watch. I had the 1st generation aluminum and black sport band. I recently just sold that one, it was cool but nothing like the series 3. This newer one is wonderful, I just love the fact that my beats Solo 3s paired with the watch and now I can go without having my iPhone with me, I can just talk on the watch via the headphones. I'm just loving that feature, so to me it was well worth the upgrade. So I upgraded to the black stainless crown case and to the cellular + gps watch. It was pricey but it's well worth it. If you have the older watch, your due for an upgrade to the series 3, it does not disappoint.
