    Had the space black aluminum for a few days - love how it's light weight. Now I've been wearing the SS for a few days at work and love the styling, but can certainly feel the extra grams. Has anyone kept both and switch between the two? can't decide!

    I do have both. I like the SS much better. The sport gave me a rash that Apple has denied it's possible. So I have the sport in a box hardly used (hint hint).
    Yes the SS is a bit heavier but I love it regardless.

    I owned the aluminum and sold it for the stainless. The aluminum is perfect for the fitness fanatic being its lightweight. The stainless was much more premium feeling and I love the added weight. Also, the Saphirre display is worth the price tag alone to protect the screen from every day mishaps.

    I have both and enjoy them equally. I regularly switch between them. I recently picked up a SBSS from the Best Buy sale to add to my "collection".

    I have both and love it! I use the SG Sport in the morning and after my workout, etc. I typically switch to the SS with either a Milanese Loop or Leather Loop and head off to work.

    I prefer the lighter weight (and better outdoor visibility) of the Sport for workouts and weekends and I like the more upscale feel of the SS for work and the rest of my daily activities. The best part is not having to constantly switch straps back and forth for workouts!

    I have several. I do like the different looks. I wear a different one every day. Even thought they feel different, I believe each has its own unique beauty.

    I have a series 1 38mm aluminum and an original 38mm SS with modern buckle (Best Buy deal). I love being able to use both on one phone instead of switching bands. I prefer the weight of the series 1, but love the look of the SS with leather band. I originally ordered a series 2 38mm SS and returned it because the additional weight and depth, even though minimal, made it heavy and awkward on my small wrist. I'm very happy with the combo I have now and together the cost of both was less than the series 2 SS watch with modern buckle.

    I use an aluminum space grey for work and stainless for after work and going out. I like both and they complement well for the different occasions.
