What are you guys using on the screen to get it clean? I use a soft cloth and Iit looks clean until the sunlight hits it. I have a black sport.

Any micro fibre cloth would do the trick. I have one spare from a screen protector pack that I bought which I use occasionally to clean the screen. Seems to work okay

Most will remove with a micro fiber cloth. If stubborn your breath and cloth should do it. The sun brings out the worst and best to not worry too much about it, just try to relax and enjoy.

If it's really dirty then I'll soak it when I wash my hands, dry my hands, and then use my shirt or a hand towel to dry off my watch. I also shower with it everyday . I've never been concerned about scratching screens with a shirt or towel as long as they're clean.

Have not washed, wiped, cleaned, polished with anything since my 42 SS arrived on 4/24. I wear it to the gym three or more times a week, mow the lawn with it, wear it every day and do not baby it in the least. Having done nothing to clean it, I am AMAZED at how clean and smudge free it looks. Apple did a magnificent job making this a low maintenance, every day device that requires almost no effort to keep in showroom shape.

If you must clean it, no secret to that. As others say above, water and a soft cloth. If gunk gets on hard to get places, a soft bristle tooth brush can be used, which also works great for getting at car wax that gets in cracks and crevasses when doing car cleaning.
