Best Apple Watch screen protectors

Your Apple Watch may cost a lot of money, but that doesn’t mean it’s free from being damaged. That watch face could be bumped, scratched, or nicked pretty easily despite Apple using Ion-X glass. So you should consider getting your Apple Watch a screen protector just like the one you already have on your iPhone or iPad. It’ll keep the watch face from becoming an unpleasant mess over time from normal wear and tear.

Before you buy anything, just make sure you have the correct size selected. Apple’s smartwatch is available in two sizes, 38mm and 42mm; therefore, you’re going to need a specific screen protector to fit properly. All of our recommendations are offered in both sizes.

Here are some of the best screen protectors for the Apple Watch.

RinoGear Premium HD Clear Shield

  • Price: $8, eligible for Prime shipping

RinoGear doesn’t use tempered glass for its screen protector, but not everyone needs that high-end material. Its military-grade screen protector for the Apple Watch does exactly what you need while not costing a lot of money.

This screen protector offers a scratch-resistant and puncture-resistant design, a special coating to prevent yellowing, and even self-healing technolgy.

You’re probably not going to find a better value. In addition to having a bunch of industry standard features, RinoGear’s screen protector for the Apple Watch is incredibly affordable. The price is just under $8 for a six-pack. Do simple math and you realize that each screen protector included costs you a little more than $1, and RinoGear does have a money-back guarantee with lifetime replacement.

ArmorSuit MilitaryShield

  • Price: $8, eligible for Prime shipping

Watch faces can get ugly, and that’s because you’re constantly touching and swiping on them. ArmorSuit’s screen protector for the Apple Watch, however, resists all the bad stuff. It reduces the impact of dust, oil, and fingerprints to keep Apple’s gorgeous smartwatch looking as good as the day you took it out of the box.

Getting this screen protector onto your Apple Watch should be a smooth process. Along with the actual screen protector, you’re getting a wedge-shaped tool to push out any air bubble during installation. Then you’ll barely know anything is covering the watch face since ArmorSuit promises near-invisible clarity.

ArmorSuit includes two screen protectors in a single package, so you’re prepared for a quick swap in case something happens to the initial one.

SUPTMAX Tempered Glass

  • Price: $18, eligible for Prime shipping

SUPTMAX makes a tempered glass-based screen protector for those who want no-compromise coverage.

Apple’s smartwatch doesn’t have an edge-to-edge display like the iPhone X. Its display representing the watch face is surrounded by rather thick bezels, so you might want to cover everything in addition to adding some more style. This accessory puts tempered glass over the display and then surrounds the rest of the watch face with a colored lining.

Your color options are black and rose gold. It’s not as many as SUPTMAX offered in the past, though these are two safe choices that will match just about any Apple Watch.

The screen protector itself also has hydrophobic and oleophobic coatings to reject moisture with ease. And, despite being made from tempered glass, you won’t have to worry about this screen protector being too thick or heavy. It measures just 0.2mm to have a barely-there presence while maintaining a purpose.

It’s more expensive than most screen protectors, but that’s simply because SUPTMAX included a high-end shield and a colored lining you won’t find anywhere else.
