What's the best way to protect your Apple Watch screen? With a tempered glass screen protector!
Apple Watch and Apple Watch Edition might have sapphire glass screens, but Apple Watch Sport isn't so lucky. If you want to keep it scratch and scuff proof, a tempered glass screen protector is the best way to do it, but not all tempered glass screen protectors are created equal. Due to the Apple Watch screen's rounded edge, most tempered glass protectors aren't able to cover the entire thing. Some protectors address that issue by coming with a case or adding a strip of curved aluminum to protect the edges.
Ultimately, it's going to come down to how you want to style your Apple Watch, but you'll still get great protection for the flat portion of the watch face with any of the options we've outlined below, without affecting touch sensitivity.
- SUPTECH Tempered Screen Protector (38mm and 42mm)
- LUVVITT Clarity Flexible Tempered Glass Protector (38mm and 42mm)
- JETech 2-Pack Premium Tempered Glass Screen Protector (38mm and 42mm)
SUPTECH Tempered Screen Protector (38mm and 42mm)
If keeping a uniform look for your Apple Watch is important to you, you'll want to consider this screen protector. On top of providing excellent protection via 0.2mm-thick tempered glass, the rounded edges of the watch face are also protected by aluminum.
It all looks really sharp, offering a good combination of style and protection, and is available for both the 42mm and 38mm Apple Watches. It comes in six colors — black, blue, gold, silver, rose gold, and rose red — so you can choose whether to match your watch's color or customize it with a splash of a different color. Just make sure you select the right size for your Apple Watch before heading to check out.
LUVVITT Clarity Flexible Tempered Glass Protector (38mm and 42mm)
Looking for a tempered glass option that provides full protection but still lets you show off your Apple Watch design? Look no further than this combo from LUVVITT, which comes with a clear, flexible case for the watch itself, a tempered glass screen protector, and a regular plastic film screen protector as a back up. That's a lot of value for this package.
The clear case is made of flexible TPU material and is designed to fit snugly to protect against scuffs and drops, but keep in mind that it might yellow a bit over time if exposed a lot to sunlight. You don't need to use the clear case along with the tempered glass, but it's good to have options.
Again, make sure you select the right size for your Apple Watch before heading to check out so you aren't disappointed when it arrives.
JETech 2-Pack Premium Tempered Glass Screen Protector (38mm and 42mm)
If you're a minimalist and only want your Apple Watch's screen protected with no extra bulk or fuss, you can't go wrong with this option from JETech. These 0.2mm-thick tempered glass screen protectors are not going to provide full, edge-to-edge protection due to the screen's rounded edges, but these are the easiest to install — with included sticker guides to help with placement and wipes to deal with fingerprints and dust — and are quite serviceable.
And on top of that, it's a two-pack, so you'll have a replacement when the time comes. JETech's protector is available for both Apple Watch sizes, so make sure you click the right link below to get the one that's right for your Apple Watch.
