    silly question but will the iwatch be able to use a screen protection so we don't scratch the face of the watch or crack it?

    In the off chance that this is an actual question and you're not trolling (based off how much this has been discussed... no offense intended)... yes

    However, you certainly won't need one based off the scratch resistance (at least for the sapphire version) unless you're handling diamonds regularly.

    P.S. it's Apple watch not iwatch

    don't think that's necessary, especially if you get the SS edition. But rest assure, zagg will probably have screen protectors available.

    Personally, for the iPhone, yea. But for the watch? i wouldn't waste the most likely 30 dollar price tag for it.

    Screen protectors from several companies are already available for sale. Don't listen to the naysayers. Yes it's scratch resistant but it's not scratch proof. It can still be prone to scratches and there is no reason why if you choose to do so that you shouldn't put a screen protector on it.

    well I'm sure no one will be buying the iWatch anyway.

    My Apple watch will already come with a screen protector. It's called Sapphire Crystal.

    Should be ok, do you put screen protector on your Fossil? Key it away from your keys and you shouldn't have to worry about scratching.

    The Watch is a beautiful object, why anyone would want to cover it up is beyond me. It'll look huge and clumsy on your wrist.

    Watches can - and almost certainly will - scratch. It's a fact of life. See it as patina rather than wear. It'll give your Watch personality, make it your Watch; something unique amongst millions of otherwise identical units. ;)

    I use it on my smartwatch and glad I do - several deep scratches on the protector. Scratches on screen will be more annoying than scratches on traditional watch crystals, because most of the time the screen is black (unlike analog watches) and scratches are very visible.

    I understand the want to protect it, but ask yourself-when with you last see a bumper/screen protector on a Rolex?

    This. Any screen protection you might need is included in the purchase. ;) Heck, even the sport model with Ion X glass will be just fine.
