    Has anyone had any luck with the screen protectors? I've seen some on Amazon but I'm just not sure how well they work. Does anyone use one?

    All screen protectors, regardless of the product they're installed on, have a degree of protection, with the primary arguably being to safeguard against scratches and scrapes. I've had the original watch and have worn it EVERY day for a year and 7 months without ever having put on a screen protector, and you'd probably need a microscope to find any scratches on it......It's been dropped, banged, bumped, etcetera, but it takes a licking and still functions normally.

    I had one on my Moto 360, they work well enough. You DO tend to bang up a watch a bit, not sure about you, but as I swing my arms as I walk they DO occasionally contact rough surfaces. Unfortunately it's too late for my Apple Watch (although its not TOO bad), BUT in general yes I do recommend screen protectors.

    I ordered the Skinomi ones based on recs here and on Reddit. I haven't busted them out OR even opened the watch package yet, but plan to install before I do anything.

    After a lot of hemming and hawwing and the drama that was Target's CyberFiasco, I ended up keeping the Stainless S2 because it was the only one that had the right price, and they FINALLY agreed (as it was on record) to correct the price per our agreement on record.

    Screen protectors are ugly in general, and even uglier on the Watch. The Apple Watches that I've seen with screen protectors on, they are always peeling around the edges.

    A less ugly (but still ugly imo) solution would be to get a slim case. The raised edges add an extra layer between the screen and whatever it might get banged up against.

    Ditto. If I couldn't wear the watch without a screen protector and/or case, I would not want it.

    I got a Zagg HD one on mine and the one corner is already peeling up on it! I am ready to rip it off and try my luck with keeping it naked

    Armorsuit. Got mine on ebay. My brother recommended. It is lifetime warranty. And if scratches occur they won't show. I got mine yesterday and applied it. You want to apply it at night so it can set overnight. It is awesome. Can't even tell you have it . Like a lot, very impressed. 6.00 on ebay and free shipping. Well worth the protection on your Apple Watch.

    I've always had a screen protector on my Apple Watch. Simply because I work on construction sites, things happen. I've only had to replace it once because it was getting pretty banged up. I don't even remember which brand I bought, it was a 2 pack I bought what, 2-3 years ago? How long has Apple Watch been out? I've had mine since then and only changed the screen protector once.

    I've had the tempered glass screen protectors save my phone more than once. The one on my phone is cracked and I need to replace it. Perhaps I'll have @Brooke5795 install it.

    Believe it or not, we are finding that the cheap screen protectors from the Dollar Store, are every bit as effective as the much higher priced versions.

    I've noticed that as well. The difference seems to be thickness in some screen protectors, but as far as protection goes, I've noticed most​ are about the same.

    And at $1.00 each, you can just stock up on extras. A friend of mine slapped a one dollar cheapy on her I phone 7 not long ago. Well, yesterday she dropped it, hard. The Dollar Store protector was toast. But not a scratch or any damage to her phone. :-)

    Only difference I found with good ones, not overly priced and the Cheap ones. Is the cheap ones glue suck and don't adhere correctly. I have returned many of them.

    Also the good ones line up and stick along the edges which is the main point. Also the costing seems better, much smoother.

    I had a screen protector on my watch for about 2 months. It cracked and I never replaced it. Had my watch for almost a year. And there are definitely some scratches that are visible. I choose not to worry myself over it but they are noticeable. I'm jealous of all the "no screen protector" club members who can't see scratches. I've got scratches on both my watch and my iPhone.

    I choose to not pay attention to either.

    This is exactly why I stick with the higher-priced spread when getting protectors for my phone. I really really dislike having the corners not fit and peel up. I'd rather pay a little more for protection that lasts instead of changing them regularly. And with the Watch, getting a good fit at the edges would be more important than on a flat surface.

    I wish I could do that. Scratches drive me nuts. So far, I've been very lucky. I had a 'self-healing' screen protector on my phone. It would get scratched and I'd be, uh very bothered. The next day, it/they would be gone. <whew> Then at the last Macworld I got a glass protector. No scratches on it at all, but it's not self-healing. My watches are scratch free for now, but I'll leaning towards getting protection.

    If I found the cheapies to be inferior, I too would go with the more expensive models. However, the cheap ones I use fit perfectly, adhere perfectly, the oleophobic coating is fine and they are invisible.
