However, I have had the non sapphire 3 for a few years and still don't have one scratch on it. And I'm really not that careful with it, but I don't necessarily bang it on brick walls either. It's funny, I've worn watches with regular glass all my life and really never had many scratches on any of them through the years, but now everyone thinks they need sapphire glass. If you're a mechanic or someone that has a tendency to bang your wrist a lot, I understand, otherwise I think it's just a way to drive up the price tag on watches.

Also, while sapphire glass is great for keeping you from getting some scratches, if you accidentally banged your watch against a brick wall or dropped it on a concrete floor, you would probably shatter the sapphire lens. Sapphire is a hard glass but it can still shatter if dropped almost easier than regular glass.

This is from an article in Time Magazine:

"Sapphire's inherent structure makes it susceptible to flaws that can occur along the crystal plane. I was told by multiple sources that various field tests subjected sapphire to scratch and break tests against strengthened glass. It performs better on scratch resistance, but when you drop it, it is more likely than glass to break. Glass actually flexes and can absorb the shock of a drop more successfully than sapphire."

Agree as I have the GF3 with sapphire and it's nice not dealing with a bunch of scratches.

The Fenix 5X Sapphire is $450 and you can get 10% off with the same code bringing it to around $400.

I picked up one with sapphire for 350+tax at massgenie last week.

Prices are coming down. If you're waiting, I don't think it will be for long.

Did you insure it?

I hope so.

Using the 10% coupon code makes it $315.
