Should you buy an Apple Watch now or wait for the next generation?

Once you decide you want an Apple Watch you need to decide if you want it now.

Buying a first generation product, be it the Apple Watch today, an original iPhone or iPad back when they launched, or a newly redesigned Mac any time, is something that used to be considered the domain of tech aficionados and early adopters. For most people, conventional wisdom was to hold off, to avoid brand new products and let the early adopters serve as the early testers. Yet as technology becomes more mainstream, products are becoming more mature, even in their original iterations. So, if you're interested in an Apple Watch, is it okay to jump into the first generation, or should you wait for the next?

Which Apple Watch Sport band color should you get?

White, blue, green, pink, or black — the Apple Watch Sport collection offers five pairs of vibrant fluoroelastomer sport bands for you to choose from.

Molded out of high-performance, fluorocarbon-based synthetic rubber, the Apple Watch Sport bands are meant for exactly what the name implies — active lifestyles. That means they're tough enough to survive runs in the sun, workouts in the gym, and hikes in the woods. Form-fitting and skin-friendly with a pin-and-tuck-closure, the Apple Watch Sport band is what ships with every case in the Apple Watch Sport collection. There are several bright, fun colors to choose from, however, and that can make the choice more difficult. If you're having trouble deciding, here's some help!

Apple Watch, Apple Watch Sport, or Apple Watch Edition: Which collection should you get?

Apple has divided the Apple Watch into three collections, each featuring a distinct material — stainless steel, aluminum, and gold.

Those three collections come at three very different price points.

Here's everything you need to know to pick the perfect Apple Watch collection for you.

Which Apple Watch size should you get — 38mm or 42mm?

The Apple Watch comes in two sizes: 38mm (small) and 42mm (large). Which one you choose depends on how you want to wear it.

Apple has provided two sizing options for the Apple Watch — 38mm and 42mm. That's consistent across across collections, starting with the aluminum Apple Watch Sport through the stainless steel Apple Watch to the gold Apple Watch Edition. Some might consider their personal choice obvious, whether that's based on wrist size, gender, or some other factor. If you're not finding it quite so obvious, however, here are some things to consider when picking the perfect Apple Watch size for you!

Should you get an Apple Watch?

If you have an iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, or iPhone 6 Plus, you can use the Apple Watch. But should you get one?

As we come closer to the Apple Watch's sale date, it's the big-ticket question. Most people need a phone. Many people need a computer. Like an iPad, however, the Watch feels like an extra accessory, and that can make it harder to figure out if you need it or not. So, let's break down the decision process and make it a little bit easier.
