    If you're still wondering about this, this might be a good example.

    My iPhone 4's back received some minor scratches throughout it's lifetime, but it's due to the fact that I laid it on it's back without protection.

    The Apple Watch Sport is susceptible to the same but since it's glass won't be in contact with anything solid (at least that's how I plan of babying it), it should do better.

    The back of the 4 didn't have Ion-x?

    I recall reading on Apple's site that Ion-X glass is the same stuff used in the windows of the space shuttle.

    if it was good enough for that, then its good enough for my wrist.

    Its should be as tough, but this doesn't guarantee you won't be getting minor scratches, which to some people (like me) can be pretty annoying.

    It's one thing to put glass back on the table, totally another to scratch the watch screen on brick wall while walking. Trust me - you WANT screen protector on your non-sapphire smartwatch. It saved mine several times already.

    iPhone 4 probably had gorilla glass 1, iPhone 6 has gg3 and the watch will probably have gg4.
