Do you guys get one for your Apple Watch? I recently bought a tempered glass for my Apple Watch to protect the screen. Unfortunately, it affects the sensitivity thus I threw it away. I am thinking of either looking for a more premium one or simply leave it alone. Do you think I should get one? Does the screen of the Apple Watch scratch easily?

I think this is so individual. There is a big thread about it in the Apple Watch Accessories forum. I personally just have a flexible Zagg screen protector on mine because I’m very active and I wear it while running and playing softball. I banged up a few Fitbits in my day so it’s more important to me to be protected than have a perfectly smooth-looking screen.

After scratching my new S3 LTE on the stone tile in my shower, I installed an Armorsuit on my replacement watch just in case. It's hard to tell it is even there.

I’ve never put a screen protector on any watch I’ve owned. This is overkill and doesn’t look aesthetic at all. Just live with it or buy the stainless steel watch, with Sapphire glass. On Omega or Tag, never had a single scratch on it.

I'm not sure which Apple Watch you own, but I'm assuming it's the sport model. I'm also not one fond of screen protectors, I think they take away from the look of the Apple Watch and the tactile feel. But if you were to consider one, one of the best ones available on Amazon is Armorsuit.

Yes, it is the 38mm sport model. Thanks for your recommendation!

I do use a screen protector, delayed learning from royally scuffing up my Fitbit screen from contact with the wall, I was plugging in a HDMI cable to the back of the TV.

I don’t think it looks any different unless I look at the sides and you can see the end of protector.

I use the IQ Shield from Amazon, it comes in a 6 pack.

Here’s how mine looks from the front:
