If you already have an Apple Watch, there’s no need to upgrade, but if you’ve been waiting to jump onboard, now’s a great time, and if you don’t mind forgoing GPS, the Series 1 option saves you money without sacrificing speed. Apple will take preorders starting September 9, and ship the watches starting September 16. (Hermès models ship September 23, and Nike models in late October.) New bands are in the store starting now.
