If I understand it correctly, the three big differences between the Sport watch and the Stainless Steel version is the 1) price 2) case material and 3) glass. My question is, is it worth spending the extra money to get the Stainless Steel version? I know value is subjective, so what I'm really asking is does the SS version hold up to general wear and tear so much better than the Sport version to justify the price? If going with the SS version, I would get the Space Black in 42mm with the sport type band. I'd like to get a black link band but don't want to pay the Apple premium for theirs. Has anyone found a cheaper alternative band that looks good with the watch?
