    Do you guys prefer the SS or aluminum version?

    For runs I prefer the aluminum because it's lighter. For everything else I prefer the SS because the sapphire screen is always flawless. I think the best solution is to buy a 38mm aluminum for working out and a 42mm SS for the office. If I had to pick only one, I'd go with the 42mm SS.

    Which one are you using & does the sapphire screen make a big difference?

    if you have two watches, does iphone combine data from both watches?
    I wonder if I can have 2 LTE watches for one phone number.

    The sapphire display is a huge reason why the stainless model is preferred for many. It's virtually impervious to scratches. My stainless Apple Watch has zero scratches on it, even after being used daily. The only drawback wihh the sapphires do play, is the reflectivity from the sun, but it's not really that noticeable.

    Sweet. Do you ever workout or do any physical activity with it on? Or would you not risk it lol!

    While above is all accurate, I will say that my original Sport is flawless and I do wear it when I workout and when I lift weights. While the sapphire is relatively impervious, I would say the Ion-X is definitely not a scratch magnet. I am reasonably cautious with my watch, but I don't baby it either. I've been quite pleased with how it has held up.

    I think the stainless steel version looks more elegant :)

    The only one who'll notice (or care about any difference) your SS watch is your wallet. Get the cheap one. In a year or two, you'll upgrade again.

    Is the sapphire screen more prone to shattering if dropped? That’s what I’ve heard and it concerns me a bit...

    I go running (trail and road), mountain biking and have been swimming a few times with my SS and no problems. Still looks virtually as good as the day I bought it.
