    So far, my Sport grey has held up VERY well with no scratches on the glass or anodized finish on the front. That said however, I noticed today several pin sized speckles in the anodized finish on the back of the watch which I'm assuming is where the anodized finish is no longer present. I just can't understand what could have done this since it never comes into contact with anything but my wrist...

    Anyone else noticed this?

    That's actually a known defect and they'll swap it out. Search for "Apple Watch Sport black lettering rubbing away" and you'll find more threads on this.
