    Just ordered a series 3 space gray 42mm. I know the series 4 will probably be out this fall but oh well.

    Did you guys buy a case for your watch? I like the look of the Nike sport band and have seen several of that look with a protective cover on Amazon for inexpensive.

    Two plus years with an Apple watch, no screen protector, and no issues. Then again, even more years with an iPhone, without a screen protector. This stuff is built well.

    All it takes is one hit in the wrong place and you get this. It even popped the display out of the case. I was glad I had paid for Apple Care so $75 fee and got a new watch.

    I’ve been browsing the Apple Watch app on my iPhone and looking at the different watch faces as well as the apps. I can’t wait for mine to arrive!!

    I’m hoping a future Apple Watch will be able to function as a glucometer without needing a separate device. I bet my wife would be on board with getting one then.

    I'm not sure I'd want my watch lancing me when I wasn't expecting it.

    An acquaintance of mine has a skin-mounted glucometer and he had to get an Android phone to monitor it.

    I bought this one and returned it:

    IOVECT iwatch 3 Case [38mm] TPU All-around 0.3mm Full Cover for New Apple Watch Series 3(2107)

    The case wraps around the watch except for the area around the crown, buttons and the bottom sensors.

    I found that when using the watch workouts, the capillary action sucked in sweat so that I could see water under the case and across the face of the watch. Likewise if wearing in the shower. This necessitated removing the case and drying both the watch and the case.

    Plus, the bulbous look of the case always reminded me of visiting relatives in my childhood who had those vinyl covers on their sofas.
