    I’ve never put a screen protector on my Watches. You would be hard pressed to notice any wear and tear on it even though I wear it every day.

    Series1, 3 and 4. Wear mine everyday. Looks like I just took out of box. Only once did I wear a band that allowed the watch to snap in. But 99% of time no protector or case.

    I use my S4 44mm Aluminum Gold Apple Watch without a screen protector and case. I have 0 scratches on the body and the screen.

    I didn’t have any screen protector nor a case on my Apple Watch 44mm and guess what? I accidentally dropped it while changing the loop and cracked the screen

    Now I wait for the new watch series to replace.

    So I suggest have at least a minimal case or screen protector

    Don’t use a case or screen protector on my S4. Never needed it for my mechanical watches & I’m not about to start now. Experience & peace of mind is subjective.

    I also don’t use a case or screen protector on my watch 4 and still looks new. These watches hold up well and are built well very durable.

    I do not use a case or screen protector. I've had it for a year, with no issues. Hope I'm not jinxing myself

    I used a screen protector on my S2 shortly after nothing a few gouges in the screen, but they always fell off after a couple of months, and I've been without one for about 20 months now. Still have the old gouges, maybe a few scratches, but you have to look hard for them to see them.

    Never a screen protector or case on the three watches I’ve had but I always go for the pricier sapphire crystal display. No cracks, scuffs, or scratches and the stainless case holds up well too.

    No screen protector on mine and I have some light scratches on the screen. I have since got a protective case since then for when I do yard work.

    Never used one on my S0. Ended up cracking the screen on it while working under the hood of my van. Dont remember how exactly, must have whacked it on something. I just got my Series 4 (Series 5 didnt impress me much) and ordered a case for it on Amazon right away. I dont make much money and can only afford a new watch every few years. Dont want to risk it.

    None on my S4 GPS only model. It does have one small nick (dot sized) in the bottom right corner where it curves to the case. I'm not sure what caused it, maybe rubbed it against my computer case while working in it. I have AC+ on it though so at some point I'll probably burn a screen replacement either near the end of the 2 years or before selling it whichever happens first. If I was still actively hiking/etc. I might get one of the Catalyst cases for use just while doing those more active activities but day to day no way. If I wanted to look like I was wearing a cheap digital watch I'd just buy one of those

    I’ve had every iteration of the AW and have never used a case or screen protector. Of all the watches, only one got a very slight scuff on the corner. Every other one has been perfect.

    I wouldn't even set my watch up (got it last week) until I got a screen/case for it. I tend to bump my wrist and arm a lot, so don't want to risk it. They do look nice naked though.

    I own watches that are way more expensive than an Apple Watch and I’m not covering them with screen protectors and cases. Why would my Apple Watch be any different?

    The thought of going without a case is too scary to me! I'm too much of a klutz!
