    Got a chance to try both on today. The Sport and the SS look beautiful, but there are definitely different "feelings" given for both.

    The Sport (to me) definitely gives off a fitness band vibe. It's significantly lighter and the aluminum well, looks very sporty. As someone who wears a suit and tie everyday, it would be tough for me to wear this as a daily driver. Maybe with a different (leather or milanase) band it would give a different vibe, but the watch is just pretty light overall. I am current larger face watch wearer and the lightness of the sport just felt more a fitbit I used to wear with a screen

    The SS, to me felt heavier and more substantial. It feels more like a formal watch. If you dress up everyday, I feel like this would be a better choice and would feel like you were wearing any other kind of watch. On the other hand, this really would not feel right as an everyday "gym" watch.

    I personally went with the SS since it would be the type I would most likely wear everyday. To each their own, but just wanted to put that out there.

    This is just my opinion of course, but with the sport watch you do pretty much get what you pay for, a cheap apple watch. The sport brand is just there to glorify it.

    Cool experience. I got the Space Black SS but online, was thinking of going to GC. Also curious, did they have any of the new gold macbooks for sale at grand central or just had them on display?
