Things to Consider Before Buying
It is important to know before investing in an Apple watch that it will never replace your iPhone, it is just an extension of it. The limited capabilities of the iWatch will make you pull out your phone again and again as the watch cannot be used as a speedy alternative of your phone. Secondly, the new series is not much different than the previous one as it comes with only a few updates that practically don't make much of a difference. So if you already have the Series 4
, you can easily ignore the new one and wait till the next series comes out with worth burying upgrades.
