If you ask me which is the best smartwatch on the market, I will most likely say Apple Watch, such is the quality, efficiency, and way everything works. It is undeniable that things have evolved quite well in the Android world, more specifically on Samsung’s side with the Galaxy Watch range of watches.
However, in terms of quality, performance, etc… Apple still has the upper hand. But, in terms of build quality and durability, things are not so black and white. After all, despite Apple’s claim that its watch uses Sapphire Glass for added protection, its level of hardness really isn’t anything special, especially when compared directly to the latest Galaxy Watches.
This is important? Well, yes… It’s just that Samsung watches are much cheaper.
Does Apple Watch have Sapphire Glass? No, but the Galaxy Watch has
So how do we know all this? It’s very simple, JerryRig made his own, and tried both watches. The conclusions are simple. The Apple Watch starts scratching at hardness level 6, this while the Galaxy Watch is still doing its tricks up to level 8.
A very significant difference, and indeed, extremely important in the world of watches. After all, we are talking about devices that are always with us, on a day-to-day basis, whether at work, running in the street, or lifting weights at the gym. They are devices that take a lot of things on top, because we are not always aware of what is around us, and for that very reason, not being cheap products, it is important that they are minimally resistant.
Personally, I’ve owned an Apple Watch Series 5, which I loved, but truth be told, durability wasn’t at all with it. However, I have a Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, which is still like new. Differences!
