Only question: Titanium instead of or in addition to Stainless Steel? With Ceramic back again in the „affordable luxury“ slot, I would guess it is the former.

Pure titanium can be cheap and easily scratched. It can be treated to make it scratch resistant. More so than steel in some cases so it depends upon what quality of titanium Apple will use

That is a lot of SKUs. Especially if Hermès sticks around.

Sport 40mm & 44mm
Nike Sport 40mm & 44mm
Stainless Steel 40mm & 44mm
Titanium 40mm & 44mm
Ceramic 40mm & 44mm
Hermès Stainless Steel 40mm & 44mm

Then add an LTE model for each version.

Seems like too many honestly. The tables are not big enough. :)

Stainless and up would be LTE enabled by default. No GPS only versions. Unless they kick the stainless down to GPS only to lower cost with an option for LTE like the other lower end models.

Weight and it can also be anodised.
How does weight compare to aluminum? I’ve only bought stainless steel watches from Apple— the space black just looks nicer to me and I also really like the heft they have compared to the aluminum models.
