Apple Watch 6: Iron Man Or Alu Boy? I have Chosen.

Once you have decided to buy a Series 6 Apple Watch, the material question still needs to be clarified. Aluminum or stainless steel, Alu Boy or Iron Man? So I’ve already voted.

No matter which version you choose, buying an Apple Watch Series 6 is not wrong. No smartwatch has such a healthy and fully integrated ecosystem. One should only be an Apple user or ultimately want to become an Apple Watch, because for the foreseeable future the Apple Watch will still be exclusively connected to the Apple world. Sorry, dear Android friends.

Material question for the Apple Watch 6: aluminum, stainless steel, or titanium?

If you have to decide on an Apple Watch, the question of material is always an issue. The only exceptions are the current Apple Watch Series 3 and the Apple Watch SE, which are only made of aluminum. Not so the top model. With the Apple Watch Series 6, you can choose between aluminum, stainless steel, and titanium. And which one should you take?

If you ask me, I listen to the voice of reason and it whispers softly but firmly: aluminum! The advantages are clear for me in the majority. First, there is the price. There is a difference of a whopping 300 euros between comparable aluminum and stainless steel models. To make this clear, the cheap Apple Watch Series 6 alone costs 429 euros. A surcharge of an incredible 70 percent has to be paid for stainless steel. No thanks!

Commitment to aluminum: more colors, models, and a lower price

Back to the advantages of the “lightweight variant”. We can also get them in the Nike edition at no extra charge. With it a special bracelet and special dials. There is also a special version for the stainless steel version, but the Hermés edition with exclusive watch faces is only available for a hefty surcharge. No comparison to the price-performance winner with the “Swoosh”.

Not to be forgotten: if you like it colorful, you can’t ignore the aluminum watch. So much choice: space gray, silver, gold, blue and red. Friends of the “heavy metal”, on the other hand, have to be content with fewer and more muted colors.

The stainless steel and titanium variants, on the other hand, primarily want to be an (overpriced) fashion statement. You have to want to afford it. I do not want this, my decision is clear and unambiguous. Reason and thus also the wallet prevail.
