SS Hermes and Ceramic for me. I need to see more of the Titanium, but didn't love the first few pictures that I saw of it.

Titanium is super light weight. Not sure if it'll be as lightweight as the Ceramic but it'll be the lightest metal watch.

Hopefully they (or somebody) releases some sort of chart on the pros/cons of each style

I'm thinking Titanium, but is it available Sep 20? Looking at Apples website Ceramic is available in the "fall".

Ok, so i know ceramic is pretty scratch resistant, is Titanium? (clearly i don't know much about this material lol)
Not necessarily. It depends on the grade, but titanium won't be more scratch resistant than ceramic. It'll be more shatter proof, though. Strength and scratch resistance are two different things.

It's a rather dull finish, however, not very attractive.
I love that it's a brushed finish, but the titanium has a warmer hue to it than steel, so I'm staying away, since it won't go well with the link bracelet.

Like I said when I bought my series 0, I wish Apple made a brushed steel model.

I just ordered mine. The finish is a bit of a gamble, I'll decide when I get it. Hopefully it will pair ok with the Milanese loop (or maybe they will release a new titanium loop).

I wanted to like titanium, but, as I said above, the color looks too warm, so I'm going stainless steel again.

I pre-ordered the 44m Black Stainless Steal model. Upgrading from Series 4.

Did consider the Titanium, but I don’t think it will suit my Black Link Bracelet.

I wish these Apple Watches could be bought without bracelets, for those of use upgrading from previous Series.

what will be the better/more popular option? Isn't titanium heavy? (probably a dumb question)
Titanium is super light and super strong. Not as light as aluminum I don't think, but close. There's a reason they use it on critical wing sections of airliners.

Will the Titanium be sweat proof?
If you're referring to the discoloration of the TiBook, that titanium was painted. That's what lead to the issues on those machines. No paint on the watch, so I would assume no issues.

Will the titanium have the stronger glass like the stainless does? I’m assuming so, due to the price, but just want to make sure.

From what I've seen of titanium jewelry, it presents as a rather dull color. It looks something like lead.

I have a Titanium Omega and love it for the weight and how the watch never feels "cold"
Titanium always feels like skin temp when you put it on.
Seiko puts a nice coating on their Titanium watches that make them much more scratch resistant vs SS. My Omega also is wearing better than my other SS watches...

At least you can pick any band you want now, unlike years past.
