    I will say this - my husband has my series 1 that has been around for over two years now, no protection on it and not a scratch on the glass. My series 2 I’ve had since shortly before the series 3 announcement and I figured I wouldn’t need anything in it considering how well the 1 aged.

    The top edge of the glass has numerous nicks and scratches and I’ve had to order a screen protector.

    It’s been treated no differently than my old series 1. The glass is clearly not the same durability.

    By chance, is one stainless steel and the other aluminum? That might explain the difference in the glass as the stainless model uses sapphire crystal.

    Nope. Both sport aluminum.

    Just out of curiosity... when you replace a watch with Apple care do you still get to keep the old broken watch?
    You do not. You need to send the old watch in. Just the watch, no bands or chargers. Apple then sends you either a repaired watch or a replacement.

    I roll naked because...well...it's a watch, lol. I also didn't get AppleCare+. The need for it on my phone is greater because I "need" my phone. Need is probably a strong word but I place a greater level of importance on my phone than I do my watch.

    No more naked for me. No, I didn't NEED to get this, just wanted to try something different.

    Spigen Tough Armor case. Little bulkier than what I had but still not bad for a case and screen protector.

    7hrs 10min. I'm envious. 5hrs is the longest I can sleep unless I've been up 20+.

    No case or no Apple care. Didn't think that i'd need either for such a cheap watch.
