    Default Black Stainless Steel...after a year?

    So...how is the Black Stainless Steel model holding up after a year of use? I'm considering picking one up, and want to know about durability.

    Thanks!

    I've worn mine all day, every day since June 2015. It still looks like brand new.

    BTW, I'm sure you've probably read by now that Apple is showing out of stock on several watches and bands, which would seem to suggest AW2 is coming soon.

    Yup. Either wait or get the current one at a good price. Could be less when AW2 is announced but may have a tougher time getting the one you want.

    I'm hoping that this means new bands and not necessarily a new Watch. Not that I don't want to see a new Watch, but I want some more, different bands for these Watches. I hope that a new Watch will use the same bands.

    Yes! wOS2 was good, but wOS3 is really a game-changer. Some useful features and streamlining of the U! Just the ease of switching watch faces alone is worth the price of beta admission. I'm looking forward to the final version!

    Mine is holding up great. No marks or damage of any kind. My "normal" watches always get scratches on the faces, but not this one (of course, due to the sapphire crystal). No nicks or scratches on the body. Still looks like new. Using a black sport band.

    Mine is excellent but it also depends on the individual and how they treat it.

    One dent and one scratch, still looks pretty good. Scratches means it has character.
