    I see the Apple Watch vs the iPhone 6.

    It's a comparison of the glass used on the watches. The Apple Watch Sport uses the same glass as the iPhone 6. They do take into consideration the difference with OLED.

    I saw that but thought it might confuse others unless it was explained. This is the internet, after all. :D

    So my take away on those results it that the Sport model has a much more efficient display and it's better looking. So I am happy that I went with the Sport model.
    But I can see the results confusing some people.

    I guess you give up some quality for durability with Sapphire. Another thing, sapphire is more scratch resistant but more brittle than ion-x glass. I've read complaints the Apple Watch (sapphire) was still getting scratched pretty easily on the oleophobic layer and until that layer is gone, you'll have to put up with the scratches.
