That depends on how you use Scarmory but the sturdy is a worthy choice as you wouldn't need to choice scarf it and you could opt out for something like a life orb or whatever else you find usable.

I'm slightly disappointed that two people have tried to answer this question apparently without having played a Generation 4 game themselves. I'll try to make this clear.

Sturdy only works on OHKO moves.

If you're playing a format where OHKO moves are banned, keen eye has a tiny bit of a chance to be useful, whereas sturdy is completely useless. However, if you do play against people with OHKO moves, sturdy is definitely better.
