Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum, I'm Spanish. I have the opportunity to get a new ss s4 watch for € 530 or wait for the new aluminum s5 for € 470. Which do you think would be a better purchase? Thanks to all.

I’d say the aluminium S5 is a better choice. It really depends on how rough you are with the devices. I’ve been rocking the black aluminium S4 until now without a single scratch on it.

Is the S5 you are getting with or without the cellular capabilities?

If without, seems like the S4 might make for a better deal. Else, I will say go with the S5, though it’s just me just preferring to have the latest and greatest.

The only thing that interests me about s5 is the aod. I had two apple watches both in aluminum. With the second I had a bad experience since the screen was scratched shortly. Mainly I would like to worry about scratching the screen...

Then don’t opt for the aluminum. The Ion-X Glass to me has a cheaper consistency with how it scratches, and if that’s something that bothers you, I would reconsider maybe for the stainless (Possibly a used Stainless S4) or opt for a screen protector for the aluminum sport model.
