Abstract. A new constant $C(X)$ for a Banach space $X$ is introduced and it is proved that $X$ has the weak Banach--Saks property whenever $C(X)< 2$. Morover, it is shown that the Kottman constant $D(X)< 2$ implies that $X$ has the Banach--Saks property whenever $X$ is a Köthe sequence space. Nakano sequence spaces with the Banach--Saks property are charaterized. It is also proved that Cesàro sequence space $\mathop{\rm ces} _p$ has Banach--Saks type $p$.
