While you may know everything you need to know about the Apple Watch SE, you may be wondering if a screen protector is necessary. Considering you likely wear your Apple Watch everywhere you go while doing all sorts of activities, it's often put in situations that can cause damage. Our favorite Apple Watch SE screen protectors will give you solid protection, which will allow you to feel at ease knowing your screen won't get scuffed.

Glass is best

The best Apple Watch Series SE screen protectors are often tempered glass — just like on your phone, they offer the best protection for your Apple Watch. It's why we suggest the Misxi Apple Watch hard case is the way to go. While the sides won't be as protected as the Smiling Case TPU case offers, it's all one piece, making it easier to slap on and off whenever you need it.

Flim protectors are cheaper, easier to install, and have absolutely no chance of messing with your favorite Apple Watch bands, which is why you'll often find them come in bulk. If a film protector is more your style, we love the RhinoSkin screen protector. Not only do they come in a pack of six, but it has one of the best and easy bubble-free installation guides, so you don't have to worry about messing up the first time.
