    I was set on SS before 'reviews' came out, and then I contemplated downgrading to sport... but the sapphire screen was enough to hold me at the SS model even before seeing this video. AFTER seeing this video, it confirms which model I will be getting. SS

    That's actually pretty impressive, would've liked to have seen a comparison with the ionx though.

    Hmm, this could be useful when they come after me with a drill.

    Do you think it could stop bullets too?

    I was mostly concerned about bumping the watch as I turn a corner or something.

    I thought the sport watch would have a chance of denting or scratching and the SS would be ok (maybe a buffable scratch and not a dent on the case), but this video does reassure me a bit about that use case.

    The only thing that would make that more epic is a Wonder Woman watch face.

    Wait, if that's the same stuff they use on the iPhone 6, then how the HECK did I get a scratch on mine!? :mad:

    If I'm not mistaken the iPhones use a version of the ion-x glass used on the :apple:Watch sport model which I believe is a form of gorilla glass.

    The iPhone 6 has gorilla glass 3 and the watch will probably use 4.
