Look at the dates.. These were shot on different days!

The straps take moments to change. but the gold is a 3rd party one that doesn't have quick release. The official gold chain hasn't been released yet.

Original MS band on sale for £69.99. Can then be traded in for £70 off a band 2 when they're released if you wanted - making the B2 £130 and still not an impulse purchase for me. Not checked to see if they're still in stock. http://www.windowscentral.com/original- ... soft-store

Got my gold official strap for the pebble steel last week. It looks good!

Wow, I didn't realise this topic was so old.

I've not heard anything about this watch on Kickstarter which has an odd mix of LCD and mechanical hands:

I finally replaced the Vivoactive with the new Garmin Fenix 5s which I've always liked but they've always been too big but they've finally made a smaller version.
Used correctly terrain is a second weapon in your arsenal, equal to your Titan itself. Make the battlefield work for you, or you will find it working for your opponent.

Regarding the theme of smartwatches, I'm not very skillful in this topic, but I can say the following - they are all quite convenient in terms of functionality, but some people are very negative about how they look like. The main argument is that this piece of high-tech plastic looks like a toy, and not as a status item. Of course, they can be understood, but not all watches are such "toys" there exists very successful models made for "classics" that look very expensive and worthy. With a leather or metal strap, they are essentially indistinguishable from a mechanical watch, until you unblock the screen. What I'm leading to - I was presented such model and should replace that I am very pleased. In principle, I can not say anything about Apple watch either about watches from Samsung, because I just do not know their strengths and weaknesses (except that they are quite expensive), but I'm sure that everyone can choose the model wich would satisfy. In order not to advertise my watch, I'll just throw off a couple of links to reviews of different brands, for clarity, there are both classic models and "pieces of high-tech plastic" (this is not trading sites, just some optional information about)
