Try on, sport watches are prone to scratches!!
what do you think?
Are you sure it's a scratch and not just some gunk that would wipe off with a damp cloth?
I'm more surprised that anyone would be surprised to see scratches on store model.
Having said that-I ordered SS hoping to minimalise this but fully expecting it to scratch whilst living on my wrist. Adds character
Yes, because people are often wearing 2 watches at a time for comparison and they rub each other. Just look at the many pics on this forum of multiple watches touching each other.
These watches are seeing major use/abuse as they are shuffled around and tried on. Shocking there is a tiny scratch...
scratchGate. this is less than 30 hours into the demo period.
I would say you would be right, except these have been on display all of one and half days, and judging by the news reports, not heavily used at this point. If it were 2 months from now, sure.
...and we have one picture of one Watch as a statistical sample base. Lets not read too much into it.
you don't know where it's been, or what kind of gorilla had it one.
Which reminds me.
is this sanitary? I think not.
That just doesn't look like a scratch at all! Scratches usually occur more or less on a straight line.
SS on The Verge's review was already scratched, so...
I don't know how phones are treated on Apple Stores, as I don't have one in my country, but if you come here and see iPhone's on operator's or other stores you'd see they're the most scratched thing you'll ever see. Pretty normal, as they're exhibition phones, and these stores don't replace them even if they're totaled...
I plan to use mine, so if it gets scratched, so be it. I'll get over it. That being said, I did order AppleCare.
I can't completely say that's 'not a scratch' but I can say that I saw something similar on a sport I tried on and I wiped away at it with my finger. Almost came off like the stuff on the back of a gift card. I saw the same thing on a SS I tried on. Both wiped off
That doesn't look like a scratch. It looks like some sticky residue. The demo watches I saw during my try on also had it...at first I thought they were scratches too, but in closer inspection it was just residue.
A physical object can get scratched. Zzzzzzzzzz
I already figured my space gray would look like crap after one year, so not to worried, maybe I can then have it gold plated
For me next year I will get Gen 2 in Stainless Steel, it scratches for sure but doesn't make it look as bad as the Space Gray will.
or maybe I will get Gold when I hit the lottery
If it's a scratch then the anodization is deep, otherwise it would be showing raw aluminum.
Umm, that sounds worse than a scratch
After thousands of fittings, better bring the alcohol wipes lol
Haha, I dont think it was residue from people trying it on (although it could have been...most of the stores are in malls). I would guess there was probably had some type of protective wrapping on in in store demo units? Could be wrong though....
It's right behind the digital crown which undoubtedly was rotated by hundreds of fingers before that photo was taken. What's on all fingers? Finger oils, simple as that.
That location on the device isn't prone to scratches. The crown would have been impacted before that area and would have protected it from being scratched. Either a slight manufacturing defect or gunk.
I bought a very thin case for mine, honestly. I'm not worried about breaking my watch, but I'd rather it not be scratched.
Link to case?
Just for scratches. Not really for protection.
Spigen has the clear case that will be available as early as launch day April 24 on Amazon:
They also have a rugged version:
And a heavy-duty rugged version:
Luvvitt also has a similar clear case that comes with a tempered glass screen protector:
