The Apple Watch is available from its launch in two finishes, aluminium and stainless steel . The difference is not only in the finish, as the colours vary slightly.

Let’s compare both finishes to help you choose the perfect Apple Watch .

Each model of Apple Watch, regardless of material, is available in three colors: Silver, Gold and GraySpace Black . But the colours are not exactly identical as the steel versions are glossy and the aluminium versions are matt.

Stainless steel

Stainless steel is the most expensive option, as well as the most eye-catching, have a flawless and shiny finish that enters through the eyes . These models weigh considerably more than aluminum, but all include LTE connectivity.

The steel Apple Watch also includes sapphire glass to cover the screen, which is more resistant to scratches. The charger is also made of stainless steel instead of plastic.

Why buy the Steel Apple Watch:

  • It’s a model more like a traditional watch.
  • You like the glossy finish.
  • You’re looking for a durable Apple Watch.
  • You like heavy watches.


One of the advantages of the aluminium models is their lightness, this makes them perfect for sports . What’s more, until this year Apple called the aluminium model Sport. In addition, the aluminium model can withstand the small scratches of everyday life better.

Instead of sapphire glass, Apple uses a reinforced Ion-X glass on the screen , which although lighter, is more susceptible to scratches. The charger, on the other hand, is thicker and made of plastic.

Why buy the aluminium Apple Watch:

  • You want the Apple Watch for sports.
  • I prefer matte finishes.
  • You don’t want to spend that much money.
  • You don’t want LTE.

Let’s hope this comparison has helped you choose the Apple Watch that best suits you and your needs.
