Consumer Reports has now conducted a series of tests on 11 different smartwatches, and the stainless steel Apple Watch came out on top. The tests looked at durability, health functionality, readability in bright and low light, ease of use, and ease of interaction. The sapphire crystal display of the stainless steel Apple Watch outperformed all other watches on the scratch test, earning a score of 9 on the Mohs test (meaning that the only mineral that could scratch it is diamond). The Apple Watch Sport, which has Gorilla Glass, didn't do as well and was on par with other watches that use Gorilla Glass.
