Originally it was expected that the Moto 360 was going to be using a Sapphire display for the glass on the watch. This was awesome, as that is what most watches typically use, and it stands up way better to scratches than traditional glass, or even gorilla glass. It bums me out a bit to hear that the display on the Moto 360 will be Gorilla Glass 3 instead of a Sapphire display. I assume this was done to keep price down but still sucks.

then again, maybe Best Buy is wrong!

heres to hoping!

I don't understand, how does that affect the type of glass/crystal they use for the display?

(And yes, they almost certainly are not providing a way to expand memory, which is unnecessary on Android Wear anyway)

well, of course it would have been great of them to use sapphire glass
my current watch has it and while the stainless steel case is scratched, there is not a single mark on the glass

but Motorola never stated that the 360 would get sapphire glass
but as you said, there is still hope and even if we end up with Gorilla Glass, I'm pretty sure that will keep up better than LGs plastic (!) OLED screen...
