It's just 0.2mm thick, which means it'll blend seamlessly into the display and its high-quality glass offers high-response and transparency. It is also available in the bigger 42mm size.

Small but important choices

It is common knowledge that you should buy a screen protector for your smartphone. They're also very easy to find.

My personal favorite is the JETech Screen Protector. The slim and minimal tempered glass screen protector is so slim, it's almost as if there is no screen protector installed. And the glass used is high quality, so it'll still feel like you are using the regular Apple Watch display. At just $4, this choice is a no-brainer.

Not far behind our main choice is the Skinomi Screen Protector. It is just as slim and minimal, and the fact that it comes with a high grade skin and six screen protectors should make you feel assured your Apple Watch is in good hands.
