Has anyone used scratch-resistant liquid applicators?

    I got my Sport watch in December and already have a few scratches on the glass. I'm not sure I want to get a screen protector (I've heard many stories of even the best ones peeling a few months later). Liquid scratch resistant coatings sounded like a good option.

    Has anyone used something like liquid sapphire on their phone or watch? Should I invest?

    I was thinking about using klasse sealant glaze on mine but my concern is the screen is oleo phobic isn't it? for sure anything like that is going to mess up a coating if so. Even a good pure carnival wax would probably work well. But would need to be applied monthly. I have some p21s which is beeswax and carnuba. I use it on interior trim stabilized wood mods. Etc. waxing glass is an old trick for various helpful things. Like less fogging. Scratch protection etc.

    Anyway. I'm curious too. I think this really depends if the screen is oleophobic or not.

    Yes, the Apple Watch has an oleophobic coating applied from the factory.

    Liquid Armor is another similar product, available at Amazon and Staples. I have no experience with it, but having a love/hate relationship with screen protectors on my phone, I have been tempted.

    Yes, iPhones (Most models I'm aware of) have an oleophobic coating applied from the factory as well.
