Getting my wife a small gift
She won't utilize waterproof on the gen 2.
I know she's like the rose gold.
I can get the gen 1 for like $216

I have the Gen1 and my wife has the Gen2. I prefer the features of the gen2. Also waterproof isn't for diving. She can wear it in the rain r washing her hands...even swimming I believe. I would go Gen2

I got my wife the gen 2.  She really likes it.  I've played with it, but don't see the appeal.  Oh well, she probably saids the same thing about the shit I spend money on.

I would be inclined to go Gen 2 as well.  That being said, I have a Gen 1 and its perfectly safe to wash your hands or be in the rain with it since it has an IPX7 rating.  Heck, I've even washed it in the sink and it didn't harm it one bit.

If you’re buying it new get the Gen2. If you can wait a bit they should drop the price of the Gen2 once the Gen3 is released.

I've been looking into them as a birthday gift. I'm holding out to see the gen 3 if it gets released in time. If not I'll get her a gen 2.

I've had my Gen1 since they were first available.

Showered with it, washed my hands multiple times a day, hell I've even swam with it.

Zero issues of water intrusion/problems.

The Gen2 would be worth it for the standalone GPS if she's an avid biker, runner, etc.

This allows you to track your workout without your phone present.
