This is going to make me look like a complete klutz but I seem to bang my watches into doorknobs a lot. I'm not too overly worried about scratches, but I'm more worried about shattering it. I do plan on being careful but my eyes are crossed, I have a lazy eye, and astigmatism- which does translate to klutzism for me. I wear my Pebble to the gym and it has a few lift scuffs but not broken (the software is more broken because the Pebble OS is horrendous). The scuffs also are barely noticeable on the Pebble. I also have a Kenneth Cole that is SS, and the SS is pretty dinged up and the glass (not sapphire) has the same small scuffs the Pebble has. I do plan on purchasing AppleCare as soon as my watch hits my doorstep (and adding it to my iP6 too!).
