I’ve been using SS since first gen Apple Watch until now, Series 3 LTE. At first, I wanted to get the aluminium sport model but changed my mind as SS looks much nicer and more durable, never looked back.
Yes, it’s more expensive but it’s worth it. If you don’t intend to change Apple Watch every year, SS might be your answer. It also boils down to your budget. If you feel half-hearted on getting SS, get aluminium first and you can always upgrade to SS for Series 5.
Just for your info. I chatted with an Apple specialist yesterday. He told me the ECG feature is pending approval by the local authorities here and once approved can be easily enabled with a software update. I see this as a positive sign. At least, Apple has already submitted an approval request. So it is definitely coming.
Last time my Series 2’s battery bloated after an overnight charge, and I brought it to Apple Store. Have to wait a few days for replacement as at that time no stock, but was given a 1 - 1 replacement. Then, my watch was only 2 mths old.
If out of warranty, then have to pay replacement cost of the watch module.
If battery replacement for out of warranty Apple Watch, I believe it is still paying for just the battery replacement cost. I have a very old iPhone 5S that got battery replacement recently. A new (refurbished) unit is issued for just the battery cost.
