Does An Apple Watch Screen Scratch Easily?

Does An Apple Watch Screen Scratch Easily?

Are you worried that the screen of your Apple Watch will scratch easily? Apple actually does not advise or recommend that you need or should fit a screen protector. Although, it usually depends on your personal preference. You see, some Apple Watch models have display glasses that are more durable than the others. An example is the Apple Watch Series 4 stainless steel model.

This wearable device comes with a display glass made out of sapphire crystal. It is actually a nice feature if you are paranoid about scratching up the screen. Sapphire crystal glass is made from the sapphire gemstone, which is the third hardest material on earth, behind diamond and moissanite. It is incredibly resistant to scratches. 

It is also possible that you have only scratched through the fingerprint-resistant, oil repellent coating of your Apple Watch screen. Apple said that it is normal for this coating to wear away under normal use. However, it may have become scratched without damaging the screen beneath.

What Are The Best Screen Protectors for Your Apple Watch?

If you own an entry-level Apple Watch that comes with the aluminum body, you will definitely need a screen protector. That is because the screen is made out of regular glass, named by Apple as Ion-X glass. Moreover, no matter how hard the screen of your Apple Watch is, it is still susceptible to scratches. With these scratches, your Apple Watch will look old and worn. 

Another reason why you should get a screen protector for your Apple Watch is the fact that cosmetic damage is not covered under either Apple's Limited Warranty or AppleCare+. And if your Apple Watch has more than cosmetic damage, Apple advises that you should not continue using a damaged Apple Watch. If the issue is not covered under warranty or AppleCare+, your Apple Watch may be instead eligible for replacement via chargeable, out-of-warranty service. 

Moreover, Apple advises not to use cleaning products or polishing or buffing the watch with abrasives. That's because these will wear away the coating and may also further scratch the display. A good quality screen protector is effective in obscuring or reducing the visibility of the mark. It also provides some measure of protection against future damage. 

Using a screen protector will help keep the screen surface of your Apple Watch scratch-free. So, in the case that you accidentally nick the screen protector, you could easily replace it with a new one. The following are some of the best screen protectors for your Apple Watch
