    There’s not an option for nothing! I’ve been rocking my 0 since launch with nothing. I do not know why people bother.

    I don't. But I also own the stainless model where the sapphire display negates the need for a screen protector for me and I don't want a case around the stainless either. I like to have the Watch actually look like a Watch in my opinion. Also, sometimes those cases (Or bumpers) that surround The casing of the Apple Watch, can be a problem with dirt and debris getting trapped in there and scratching the casing.

    Neither model in realty needs a case or a screen protector more than the other.

    Disagree. Strictly user preference. That would depend on how hard somebody is on their Apple Watch and how they treat it. If somebody was working in more of a physical environment, then I would suggest a screen protector for the Ion-X glass on the sport model. Which in my opinion, I'm not impressed with the durability with scratching on the sport model. Which is why I opted for the Sapphire display.

    And I disagree, I’ve banged the Ion-X & Aluminum SG series 0 so many times, on walls, door knobs.... it’s absolutely still perfect both glass and body years later.

    Look at a SS series 0 and the glass might look great but the SS case, not so much. The SS body scratches easily, yes you can buff it so it looks pretty good but imo not new. SG aluminum is much more durable, but of course we all have our opinions to which is better as seen here over and over.

    Nor am I speaking for every Apple Watch owner. Which again, which is why I stated it's strictly preference. No two situations will be the same how somebody treats a product or what is subjected to it in a different environment. I owned the sport watch, I was disappointed in the Ion-X Glass in its durability and I thought it was cheap. I upgraded to the stainless, and yes it does scratch, but it can be restored literally to new with a Cape cod cloth. Where once you scratch the aluminum, it's permanent. So the argument goes both ways so what's an advantage or disadvantage based off your usage. You're saying yours is perfect and others usage will conflict with yours.

    Please don’t edit and change my words in your quotes. And once again, I and others might disagree with you bringing us back to where we started.

    Incorrect, I didn't change your wording, I narrowed down specifically to what I was quoting you on. See the bolded listed in your post below and how I combined it.

    Lastly, what I stated was accurate about the aluminum. There's no denying it, once it's damaged, it's permanent. They advantage of the stainless is it can be removed with scratches and restored. That's not a disagreement, that's a fact.

    I’m done with you. You changed my quote, period. Your “opinion” is not facts.

    I clearly indicated the Bolded part for you to see what I quoted you on and it's recorded in the previous post regarding the Apple Watch and it's casing. So I'm not following your argument at all. But I respect your opinion about your Apple Watch and what I stated is accurate contrary to what you believe with the differences between the aluminum and stainless.

    I don't use any protection on mine; I don't care that much if it gets banged up a bit.

    I use a plastic shield/cover on my aluminum Nike Series 2. However I am a printer technician at Xerox and put my arms into production printers. Without the shield/cover I would have destroyed the screen by now. Probably would have destroyed a stainless steel glass as well.
