This is my second digital watch following an Apple watch. I cracked my apple watch screen within 36 hrs of owning actually. Buying my next digital watch, durability was a huge concern. After owning my Garmin for over a year now I've had no issues. Only a few small blemishes on the stainless steel around the glass you can hardly notice. I live a very active lifestyle and bring my watch everywhere. 100+ days snowboarding, mtn biking, running, etc. It holds up in all activities. The battery life is incredible even after more than a year of use. Also, if you are into analytics this thing gathers everything. This watch will help you see your weak spots and push PRs. It did for me!
