    Is it lighter than the steel model?

    Can you swim with it?

    I really like the white look and am tempted to get one.

    It’s amazing. Lighter scratch resistant but the bottom line has the same hardware with a difference encloser. If you have the cash to shell and don’t mind the depreciation this is the watch to get.

    It can shatter but this is a tough watch. It has all the benefits of both watches light and sapphire glass.

    If I had the cash and didn’t mind the loss of value in a year I would get it. But I run with my watch 5 days a week and wanted a SS but I think I’ll just get a Nike watch and a case and a stupid screen protector.

    So it is lighter than the stainless steel? I want to try to find weight numbers somewhere to see where it falls versus aluminum. I got an aluminum series three but I saw these pictures of white with blue bands and started drooling a bit...

    Guess I was wrong. But still the number one choice and lighter than SS in the 42mm.

    Aluminum weight:

    • 38mm: 25g (Series 1), 26.7g (GPS-only), 28.7g (GPS + Cellular)
    • 42mm: 30g (Series 1), 32.3g (GPS-only), 34.9g (GPS + Cellular)
    Stainless steel weights:

    • 38mm: 42.4g
    • 42mm: 52.8g
    Ceramic weights:

    • 38mm: 40.1g
    • 42mm: 46.4g

    It is highly durable with the ceramic, and it has two unique colors with the space gray and white. But there's just something about the stainless steel version Personal preference and having more of an appreciation for the high shine and added weight.
