full review, I wanted to revisit it now that half a year has passed to tell you about my experience with it, what I like, what I don’t and if it’s worth it. Check out the video below. Not only do I prefer the look of the stainless steel model, but they also come with the sapphire crystal screen rather than the cheaper Ion-X Glass, or whatever Apple calls it. I still have and occasionally use my original Apple Watch, which is the stainless steel version with the sapphire and there isn’t a single scratch on that after 3 years of use.The ideal training partner As I’m also an Apple Music user – I sync my music automatically and use my BeatsX or AirPods to listen to music without having to have my iPhone nearby.
