    I am having a difficult time deciding between space black SS and space grey aluminium Apple Watch.

    I swimming 3-4 times a week and is wondering which offers better corrosion resistance to both chlorine and salt? thanks

    Just be sure and rinse the watch in fresh water after swimming and either one will be fine.

    Thanks. I know polished SS (regular) is likely more durable than anodized aluminium. But what about the coated space black SS? Does it need any special care other than rinse and wipe?

    No. same care. Less care than SS if you consider you might have to polish the SS.

    I doubt the SS will need much "polishing." My dive computer is SS and the only thing I ever do is wipe off the face with a lint free cloth after rinsing in fresh water.
