I'll probably wait a few months before pulling the trigger to get a feel if it's something I really need to do. I'll have to look up how Verizon does their upgrade program. 

I will say the Airpods look ugly. I was never impressed with how well the apple headphones would stay in the ear. I would probably lose those with in the first month.

Wake me up when the watch works without being accompanied by a phone. I want my watch to be my phone and talk into it like Dick Tracy.

I don't see myself dropping the coin to buy them either. I would be afraid of losing them too.

Same here. I'm expecting the jet black will be in high demand. @iacas what storage are you getting? I'm thinking 128. I've about ⅔ of my 64 filled currently. Lots of kid pix and videos. ?

I'm not getting jet black. I've read it will scratch easily. Plain black it is.

128. I have 64 now and it's fine, but nearing the end. I will eventually offload a bunch of my pics and videos. They're already backed up on Dropbox anyway.

I guess it will depend on how much they cost. 

I've just had bad experience with the typical Apple headphones when I am working out. If they changed the overall design on how they fit then that's a plus.

Yeah I don't see the SE going away anytime soon because there's a large segment out there who want that form factor. Personally, I've gotten so used to my 6+ that anything smaller just doesn't feel right. 

I'm still using my three-year-old iPhone 5S, and I've been holding off on upgrading in the hopes the release of the 7 would spark a price drop on the SE. From what I've read, the 64GB SE has dropped by $50, and that's the one I've had my eye on.

It wasn't until about 3:04 or so that the store came online. But I ordered almost without incident.

I'd forgotten a Time Capsule I'd added to my cart a month ago, so I accidentally bought it too. I cancelled it a few minutes ago.

128 GB Black, due the 16th.

The only reason I knew about the water/dust proof standards they were talking about was because I looked it up when buying a .... doorbell. :-P Yes, I am anal.

I hope I won't be going in to a dense dust storm soon, but it's comforting to know my phone will be safe. :-P

Off topic, but I found a cool waterproof doorbell that doesn't require a battery, it uses the motion from pressing the ringer for energy.

I've been doing the same. I like the size of my 5S but I'm ready for the faster processor of the SE. Seems to be good deals coming on them. Glad they didn't do away with the SE. 

I can't find the info anywhere, but is the SE getting an update with the iPhone 7 release, or is it the same SE as before?

They only mentioned doubling the memory in the 6 and 6S, not the SE.

You can do that now… with your phone in your pocket.

Why would you want your watch to be your phone? You'd likely be charged for yet another line by your cell carrier, the battery would die sooner, etc.

To simplify things by not carrying a phone at all.  Technology would have to sufficiently advance regarding battery life and fitting all the necessary goodies in there.  It certainly wouldn't need all the phone's functionality.  A few decent ways of communicating, GPS navigation,  and a lot of the stuff it does now.

I second this. The watch becomes infinitely more useful to me if it means I can leave my phone at home and still use it.

Really? Infinitely more useful?

It's a pretty darn small screen, you realize… It's good for little things. Quick things. Notifications.

I love it for that… but that's about all it's good for.

I love and wear my Watch every day. But I still use my phone for the "bigger" tasks. Like any time I have to type anything… Or want to read something.

I'd like to have a watch phone to wear when I'm traveling, going out to dinner or playing golf but it could never replace my actual phone beyond those applications.

    • So it's not the position of your hands that affect how much your toe should be up at address, it's just your swing speed and the material the shaft is made from?   I had seen it mentioned that hand position was the most important thing for this but maybe it's wrong 
    • We did some competitive stuff on the Sandbox and the last day I shot about as well as I possibly could.  I shot a 53(par 51) on the final day when we did a team competition. The Sandbox was just and absolute joy to play, and some of the pin positions were very tough to get.  I shot an 80 at Mammoth which was low for me on the one day my driver was behaving, but was mostly mid to high 80s on the other days. I had a few hybrid(it's a 3 cranked down to a 2) shots that were probably my best shots. The par 5 number 18 on Mammoth to just before the green from about 250 out. Same thing on 10(par5) at SV from about the same distance to the front edge. I drilled my second shot on the par 5 number 7 at SV that rolled off the back of the green from 240-250 or so. Unfortunately it rolled into a deep bunker off the back where I took a double. 😂 I saw some pretty incredible shots and a couple low scores taken out there, but that is for those people to share that if they want.  It was just such an amazing time out there, I had so much fun. 176 holes over 6 days, others played even more than that over 5. 
    • Depends on the swing. The club shaft is not straight at impact, even if you match hand position because the weight of the clubhead will cause the shaft to bend, sending the toe closer to the ground. That depends on your swing speed, and the golf shaft.  Its best just to get fitted for irons and use a lie board. 
    • Sounds like you guys had a great time, I loved reading the reviews. I'd love to hear about some of the best shots you guys hit out there, did anyone go super low compared to how they usually score?
    • Yeah. Eastern Michigan is one of the ones I'll admit not knowing. Pretty weak for someone that went to Bowling Green, but they were the Eagles by the time I got there.  Another one I never knew was the NBA Warriors. Before moving to California, the Philadelphia Warriors used a really hokey-looking Indian character. Obviously, they kept the name but changed the logo.     Really. The fact that the teams are pulling these nicknames is proof positive that people are offended by them. If it was still a real argument, Washington Football Team would have never given up that nickname.  The fact that they did is a case-closer.
