As far as the color of the face..silver, gold, rose gold. I'm getting an Apple Watch tonight and although I think I'm pretty sure I'm getting the 42mm aluminum I'm not sure which color face to choose. I can always change the band out so that's not a big deal color wise. I'm torn between the gold and the silver..the rose gold is too pink for me I think. Which face do you think would match more variety of bands if I choose to swap them out? I really love the gold face with the antique white band but that doesn't come in a 42mm and the 42mm gold face has a navy band...ugh....the decisions

I just got a watch I choose the rose gold one. Hoping the aluminium is the stronger variety they use now in the phones.
I have not even used it. I thought it looked very pink too. I ordered the phone in pink too. It will be very girly looking. I got the Moto 360, and LG G and Pebble too. Not every day has to be girly.
By the way Android wear is now available on iPhone too.

Man, I am kicking the CRAP out of myself!!! I got my Apple Watch for Father's Day. I got silver.

But now, there's GOLD!!! I want GOLD!! It's probably a good thing I was out on a cruise and not watching when this was first announced. Matter of fact, I didn't even know there was GOLD until last night when I started watching the Keynote.

I'm so torn as to what to do now!!! I WANT GOLD!!!!! I must have matching iPhone, iPad and Watch. I'm even about to get a new MacBook. Any guesses as to what I might get?

Have you considered selling it on Craigslist or eBay and then getting a gold watch? Might be an option if you don't want to wait for next year. The silver is nice if you decide to stick with it. I actually prefer to have different colors on my iPad and iPhone rather than matching. Are you getting an iPhone 6s Plus?

Yeah, if I get serious enough about it, I'm sure I could sell the Silver.

As far as the 6s Plus is concerned, I'm undecided. As I previously mentioned, I missed the keynote due to being on a cruise, and I'm not to the part where they talk about the new features, etc. yet, nor have I done enough reading to know for sure what I'm going to do. I didn't pre-order, cause I got off the boat on Friday morning and played in SoCal all day, so still didn't have time to research. The few things I did see and hear that day made me think I can wait.

Of course, I've been on the fence before, and then found myself 2nd in line at 4:30 AM on launch day with all the other Apple-Aid drinkers. That may be my option next week as well. Only one problem. I volunteered to substitute teach a class that day for a friend of mine that goes from 6:30 AM to 7:20 AM. Last night I told someone they may have to either sub for me, or sit in line for me. ;)

Yeah, you could always wait in line and get one in the store on launch day. Think you'll get regular gold again if you do get it? I ended up ordering the Rose Gold this year. I've had Space Grey the past two years.
