For the first time, Apple Watch Edition is available in two beautifully engineered ceramic cases. And it has all the powerful features of Apple Watch Series 3, including cellular — so you can leave your phone behind and go with just your watch.
I've now had the Ceramic Edition watch for 6 months, and I am still very happy with my purchase. I chose the gray option because of it's more muted appearance. I chose the ceramic not because I particularly like expensive watches, but I thought the durability / materials quality of the ceramic body and sapphire crystal glass were a really neat concept. I plan to keep the watch for at least a few years or more before my next upgrade, so that helped justify the cost as well.
Apple Watch purchase has turned out to be an invaluable investment. It has allowed me to be phone free at several occasions especially at the gym. Without having the physical presence of my phone, I am able to receive / make calls, receive / write text messages, receive WhatsApp messages and reply back, etc on LTE.
I loved this watch! Unfortunately I had to return it. There was a deal at Sprint for a free watch, otherwise this is the watch of my dreams!

Best Apple Watch
Unfortunately, Apple stopped making the Ceramic Apple Watch Edition. The stainless steel versions scratch and dent very easily. Ceramic is indestructible, except for sapphire crystal face, so add a zagg screen protector because apple cannot service.

The Apple Watch 3's best feature costs more, kills its battery

A:AnswerThis is their high end model called ‘the edition’. Nothing doesn’t different about the internals of the watch. The case is made of ceramic which is extremely scratch resistant. The watch face is sapphire glass (same as the stainless models I think).
A:AnswerThe ceramic case Apple Watch is exactly the same as the other Apple Watches in that all compatible Apple Watch bands fit it and are interchangeable. The ones that look the best are completely an aesthetic choice but the leather band or Milanese loop are always fine choices for bands.
