    Hello and thanks for the summary!

    But what I can't find anywhere is whether the stainless steel version has sapphire crystal again or not. It looks like they have saved on it now…. :-(

    Do you know more?

      At Maclife you will find this note: "The aluminum watch is the only model with the less scratch-resistant Ion-X glass, while all other models are equipped with sapphire crystal." So don't save ... ;-)

  2. Pablo says:

    I had read it too, but the report is from September 13.9th. so before the performance…. But find nothing in the current specifications.

    • Sir Apfelot says:

      I asked Google again in America and came across the following statement at SlashGear.com: "Apple tells us that the Series 6 aluminum version uses Ion-X glass, while the stainless steel and titanium versions use a sapphire crystal. All models have a ceramic and sapphire crystal back. "

      So yes: Apple itself says that the stainless steel version has the sapphire crystal.

  3. Pablo says:

    so! After chatting with Apple it was confirmed that the stainless steel version still has a sapphire crystal! ;-)
