    First let me start off that I am now sort of a klutz. I bump into things every so often because I had a back injury and had nerve damage. My balance can be off at times. Which means I bump my watch against a wall or door frame at least once or twice a week. I try to be careful, but it hard when I lose feeling in my right side once in a while.

    Now back to my question. I purchased a 42mm SS with a black leather loop which I ordered on April 10. I am still waiting to get it, still processing. Should I purchase a Case and a screen protector for the Stainless version. Usually, for a watch I would never think about getting these things, but the Apple Watch isn't really a watch, it is a minnie computer. I know the screen is Sapphire. But, because of my injury, I think I probably should protect my purchase since I see myself bumping the watch a few times.

    I was looking at getting for screen protector ArmorSuit Military grade and possibly the Spigen exact fit silver case or the Spigen clear case.

    What does everyone think? Please tell me why or why not I should or should not get any of these. Remember my condition. Any help would be appreciated.

    pass on the screen protector but i recommend a case, for light scratches those can polish out, but i got two pretty deep scratches on my watch that no polish could ever get out.

    Technically, it is a mickey computer. :D


    With regard to your question, my feeling is that a case would be sufficient, since it would both protect the body of the watch and make it less likely for you to hit the screen on anything. A screen protector is primarily for preventing scratches, which shouldn't be much of an issue with the sapphire screen.

    You caught the Minnie reference. Did that on purpose instead mini. Thought it would be funny.

    I decided to order a Spigen Case Exact Fit Slim Silver Version. It is like a bumper case that will possibly help protect the steal from denting. Don't know if I will keep it on all the time though. I did also order the ArmorSuit screen protector, but I will decide if I really need it. It is better to have it before I get the watch, then afterwards. Besides, I had Amazon credit, so no real money out my pocket, plus both were pretty cheap.
