    Considering getting an Apple Watch 2. I had thought that several companies made skins for these watches. I have always purchased one from Best Skins Ever for my iPhones. I love them because I don't have to worry about the body of the phone getting scratched up and you can't even really tell there is anything on it. I would love one for the Apple Watch. I know that the sapphire screen is extremely resistant to scratches (I used to collect fine mechanical watches, most of which had sapphire crystals), but I'd likely get a screen protector as well. I'm OCD. I know that there are a number of options for screen protectors. But has anyone here purchased a skin for the body of the watch? My search here didn't turn up much. And BSE seems to only make a screen protector (standard and extended coverage). I see that Slickwraps makes them. Any reviews?

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks. Link isn't working for me for some reason. But I ended up going with Armorsuit. I actually love it. Can't tell it's on there at all and it covers almost every square millimeter of the watch (and a piece for the screen). Been on for about two months now and holding up just as well as the day I applied it. Really a pain to put on (takes a lot of time and patience) but worth it. The steel beneath is completely protected and because of the shiny material it looks exactly the same as if nothing was on at all. Highly recommended if you have the time and patience to apply it correctly.

    ah, thanks. that worked. yeah, that didn't turn out so well, lol. i don't think that's typical (or maybe it is), but I also think the slickwraps are a totally different material from the stuff that armorsuit uses. no experience with that yet as I chose not to go that route. i'd still would be interested in buying some and giving it a shot down the road if i ever decide to remove the armorsuit. like i said, armorsuit is awesome as a clear, almost invisible protection. it just requires a lot of patience to apply. i spent about a day or two each time i put it on, carefully holding down corners, wrapping it in saran wrap to keep everything in place, and going over trouble spots multiple times to make sure it ultimately adhered fully. but once on, it looks great and stays on.
