"Removing the USB power adapter from Apple Watch."

they did that. so it will not be surprised that iphone 12 will not have it too.

Apple Watch SE looks way affordable at $279. Now to wait for review and difference between this and AW6..

I guess have to buy in SG and activate ECG there.

Still thinking should I go for S6 or Fenix 6.....

Currently wearing S1 still served me quite well except the running activity having issued recently. Jogged tracking for 5KM but the watch only recorded 2KM+ or walked for 1KM but recorded 0.4KM+ and the pace was stamped at 10+min/KM on jogged (normally 6-7min/KM) sad.gif .

Thinking of getting my first Apple Watch this time round. The SE’s price is attractive but love the blue and AOD on AW6.

To owners of AW5, is the AOD useful in daily usage? Does it drain the battery a lot?

In my experience, battery would be about 15%-20% lower at the end of the day with AOD on. Mine is AW5 40mm btw. The 44mm version should last slightly longer.

Personally I don’t mind buying AW without AOD as we need to raise hand to see the watch anyway.

own series 4,

looking into series 5, 6 and SE. nothing to jump up.
- not daily use, most on outing, weekend
- not fully utilize

who ever buying for first time, yes choose SE.
bargain. no much diff with 4, 5, and just abit 6.

I wonder if the always on display on series 5 and 6 is a huge difference. This is the only reason I want to upgrade from my series 3. But cannot decide if the AOD on 5 is good enough or to straight go for 6.

Those who cannot wait can buy from Amazon first. Ship to forwarding company and ship it back to Malaysia. Around RM40-60 only for shipping fee.

TS/admin, I think it's better if you put a big bolded note in the 1st post to tell people how to activate ECG or buying certain region watch won't guarantee you ECG functionality activated here. Otherwise, this thread would be pages and pages of people asking how and if they can buy other countries' watch and automatically have ECG. It's a little frustrating to see this question keep on popping up especially in S5 and S4 thread when it's been answered over and over again.

Internally,
Nike version -> Exclusive Nike Watch Face + preinstalled Nike app (which you can download from the App Store)
Hermes -> Exclusive Hermes Watch Face

Externally,
Watch build -> Titanium, Aluminium etc etc.
Bezel -> S3 bezels huge. SE/S6 bezels = S4 / S5.
Strap Material -> Sport band, Sport Loop, Normal loop, Millanese loop etc etc

These are the differences. TBH, the internal part is nothing much. It doesnt mean that Nike has a way better tracking accuracy or special algorithm etc etc. Everything is just the same. icon_rolleyes.gif

Thanks for the info. Seems getting the cheapest version of series 6 is the best bang for money lah .. i dont really care on the material. More into the function which I would say the same for all across series 6.

Step 1: Onboard Maxis, Digi or Celcom. NOT Hotlink, Digi Prepaid, Xpax.
Step 2: Onboard eligible POSTPAID plans (RM80/month minimum)
Step 3: Pay extra RM10 or more for each eSIM for your Apple Watch.

So to actually own a cellular watch in MY is still considered expensive. Looking at these 3 telco's offerings @ their minimum postpaid plan.
Maxis: RM98 + RM18 (eSim Watch fee)
Digi: Digi's website. RM10 for eSIM Watch fee
Celcom: Celcom's website. RM15 for eSIM Watch fee

Btw, that thing, Family Sharing which the other party doesnt need to have an iPhone, doesn't work in MY. Plus, it's restricted to limited features only.

Step 1: Onboard Maxis, Digi or Celcom. NOT Hotlink, Digi Prepaid, Xpax.
Step 2: Onboard eligible POSTPAID plans (RM80/month minimum)
Step 3: Pay extra RM10 or more for each eSIM for your Apple Watch.

So to actually own a cellular watch in MY is still considered expensive. Looking at these 3 telco's offerings @ their minimum postpaid plan.
Maxis: RM98 + RM18 (eSim Watch fee)
Digi: Digi's website. RM10 for eSIM Watch fee
Celcom: Celcom's website. RM15 for eSIM Watch fee

Btw, that thing, Family Sharing which the other party doesnt need to have an iPhone, doesn't work in MY. Plus, it's restricted to limited features only.
*
Digi:

For family plan above RM80 (principle line), their subline RM38 is eligible at RM10 esim to activated applw watch.

Principle RM80+RM10 = RM90
Family line RM 38+RM10= RM 48

Sadly must have iphone to work, family setup x available yet, n linited function n only 14 hours work

Well, I guess we will be getting AW6 & SE here in about a month's time. Give or take, mid - end of October.
My estimation: 12 or 13 Oct announce, 16 Oct pre-order, 23 Oct new toy on our wrist.

With a RM550 difference, I'm still thinking grab a SE or just close one eye and get the S6 confused.gif

Currently using a cheapo Amazfit which has AOD and feel that AOD is useful in daily usage. But I believe the tilt to wake up the screen on Apple Watches should be faster and more precise compare to my current watch..

It depends on whether you want to use it often without the phone. For example, I use it during my daily run where I could stream online radio while running.

Was told you can make/receive calls with the Cellular version? I’m guessing you’ll need Airpods for that, or will be talking physically into your watch like a James Bond movie? smile.gif

Both. Not necessarily need Airpods. Just any bluetooth headset with mic connected to the watch will do. No headset then it will blast the sound out from the watch's speaker.

*Add on
It's not like a James Bond feel cos it's not easy to hear and everyone around can hear your conversation. Somestimes u need to carry the watch to your ear to listen.

Thanks for this info.

I'm wondering about these features to be available in Malaysia or not before. Pity for Malaysian doesn't have an Apple Pay & ECG on their expensive watch.

I'm using Series 4 + Garmin 3HR. Have to decide to upgrade to AW6 or Garmin 6.

On series 4, talking to the watch directly is much better than the version before, I will assume 5 and 6 has some improvements as well.

Seems the wait is still on for us to be able to buy AW6.

Any comments in the sizing? I'm undecided on 44 vs 40mm? My wrist is small so the 44mm looks large furthermore when I add on some casing for sports. But don't want to regret as need to squint and read the watch of its too small.

My wrist is on the small side and I've always gone for the larger 44mm.
The size difference isn't so immediately apparent when on your wrist. And that little extra real estate is really helpful in navigating that screen real estate, especially if you get fat finger symdrome.

I've never gone with a case as I think it takes away from clean facade but that's more personal preference so I can't comment on the impact a case would have on the profile apart from changing it to a mini G-shock. Been wearing the watch sans case for full on sports like futsal and all for 3 years now, touch wood still going.

I use the regular Sports Band for sports. Easy to wash off the sweat and dry after.
For normal use, I'm using the Sport Loop.

yeah was confused about the sports loop, w a name sport but with fabric should be wet and smelly.

For what it's worth, I have no reason to think Apple watch straps are not safe.
Among me and my friends, I have never come across an instance of strap failure. Swimming included.

I have 2 Sport Loops for casual wear and 1 Sport Band that I use for sports. Same experience across.
It's all originals, no experience with third party straps.

I plan to get Nike sports loop for both casual and sports use, is the loop reliable with daily on and off use? I read someone commented that the loop’s velcro became weak after few years.

I prefer the loop for daily use due to it being fabric, so there's comfort and some airiness.
In terms of reliability, it would say it has been every bit as reliable as the band. So yes, very reliable.

One of the loops I have is 3 years old now. The other is about 1 and a half.
Just checked the velcro on both for comparison, the older one adheres just as well. I don't think it has become weak at all.

The newer loop I have is a Nike sport loop, in black with reflectors. Classy and it's my daily choice.

sorry gang, I might have viewed wrongly. But now I could click all the way and the word Unavailable is no longer there when i choose all the options...and then realized it is Apple Global website, not Malaysian website.

Preordered SE last week from Sen Heng, was told it’ll arrived on 21st and today they said stock will only arrived on 27th. Not surprised since they’re always later than others. 🤷‍♂️

Went back to SenQ and cancelled my pre-order. After getting the refund, went straightaway to Switch and purchased S6.

Settled!

The blue color band looks a bit different in review photo, are there 2 different blue bands?

I see. Looks like lights can make the blue band look quite different in photos, cause the one I like is the darker navy blue and not the brighter one.
