This is me also, and my watch is set on the middle setting.I haven't had issue with the brightness of the Watch. Even in full sun I was able to see it clearly.
Yes it auto adjusts. And I find it a little easier to read in direct sunlight than my phone. And I'm usually wearing sunglasses when I'm looking at it. It's not a Pebble but it is readable. If you can see your phone in direct sunlight you won't have a problem with the watch.Does it auto adjust to light settings? Seems like if I'm in a dark room, the watch gets dim. Walk into a well lit room area, it get much brighter. I have my phone set on half brightness and the check mark for "auto-adjust" is off.
Apparently the sapphire is more reflective and lets less light through from the display. Source:http://9to5mac.com/2015/04/27/displaymate-apple-watch-display-test/I've heard that is matters whether its Sapphire or glass.
I owned a glass one (SGS) for two weeks, then returned for a sapphire one (SS). No complaints here. Yes the sapphire is more reflective, and perhaps the display slightly less bright, but it's a small difference. I'll gladly take the glossiness of the sapphire over the less reflective ion-x specifically because this is a watch not a phone. On a phone you are reading web pages and emails and reflections would get annoying. On a watch, you are just glancing, and IMO the glossiness of the sapphire just makes it a much sharper looking watch (along with the shiny stainless). Readability isn't significantly impacted and I really dig the look, feel, and durability of the sapphire.Apparently the sapphire is more reflective and lets less light through from the display.

Really? I see it all the time. But then I turned it down to lowest level, and never have any issues, even in full sunlight. So it is possible if turned up high it does less scaling up and down.I'm seeing no evidence that the display brightness auto adjusts, despite claims to the contrary.
That must be it. I've got my brightness cranked up to high and can't notice a difference.Really? I see it all the time. But then I turned it down to lowest level, and never have any issues, even in full sunlight. So it is possible if turned up high it does less scaling up and down.
Wasn't aware. Guess that makes sense now.Apparently the sapphire is more reflective and lets less light through from the display. Source:http://9to5mac.com/2015/04/27/displaymate-apple-watch-display-test/
