In a recent investigation conducted by DisplayMate, the diagnostics company discovered that if you are in search of the best possible Apple Watch display, it is best to invest in an Apple Watch Sport. The sapphire crystal alternative to the Sport’s strengthened Ion-X glass is rumored to reflect twice as much light as its cheaper counterpart and will bleach out the watch’s display in bright conditions. Although this does not directly affect the quality of the OLED retina display, it does essentially conclude that the higher priced Apple Watch is in fact not as strong or as functional when compared to the display quality of the Sport. It is also said that Apple cannot apply an anti-glare treatment to counteract the problem as it’s more prone to scratching – thereby defeating the point of having one of the world’s hardest transparent materials as a screen. The Ion-X glass used on the Sport is also an aluminosilicate glass that is especially resistant to scratches and impact and is far lighter than the glass components used on the Watch and Watch Edition.

How does this affect which version of the Apple Watch you’ll pick up? Let us know in the comments below.
