Zowie S1 vs Zowie FK1

The FK1 has a unique shape, more narrow and lower profile. The S1 dimensions and shape is more traditional, with a more standard length to width ratio. Both shapes are great and you can't really go wrong with either, the S1 is slightly larger than the FK1.

The S1 has lighter and more responsive buttons, the S1 cable implemenation is better as well reducing cable drag.

The S1 has a flawless sensor in the PMW3360,  while the FK1 has an okay ADNS 3310 that can spin out.

If you don't have a shape preference, then you should definitely get the S1, it's generally better than the FK1, but if you prefer the low profile shape go for the FK1.
