Hello.
I want to buy an Applewatch 4.
It’ll be my first Applewatch.
I think I will buy the aluminum cause the stainless is really more expensive.
I want to keep this watch 2 or 3 years, so I need one that is strong.
Do you think that the iron is really more strong ?
I have readen that the aluminum is more fragile, specially the glass and that the black color can scratch and remove easily.
What do you think ?
What is your advice ?
Thank you very much.

If you're keeping it 2-3 years and worried about cost. Get a S3 stainless for almost half the cost. The sapphire crystal front and body will hold up that long. The aluminum's glass won't

The silver and space gray 7000 Series aluminum is not fragile, it’s extremely durable and corrosion resistant due to the anodization. A large portion members on here own the Sport Model and will attest to this.

The Only downside to the space gray Apple Watch, is that if it does damage, it will show the damage more specifically, because it is black and will show the contrast.

Any concerns that you have with the display, which is known as the Ion-X Glass, is very similar to the glass the Apple users on the iPhone. It’s not as scratch resistant compared to the Sapphire display as the stainless, but it’s perfectly suitable for every day environments, and you can always add a screen protector if you’re concerned about the display.

My watch did. You can't see any flaws at all unless you go looking for them, they're so tiny.

Aluminium and glass holds up fine, if you are a person who treats their belongings with a modicum of respect. If you're a careless slob then you'll smash it, but then again that's true of the stainless/sapphire models as well.
