    Very disappointed in the quality of the sport face.

    I have worn $5 watches, a rolex, movados, Tags and numerous other watches.

    I wear them in the yard, gym, anywhere and everywhere. Never had scratches.

    I wore a long sleeve shirt last night, regular cotton. This AM I look at watch, and there are about 6 thin scratches on face of watch. looks like in the anti-glare material?

    I'm returning this thing. All the care I gave it, never wore outside of going to work, very disappointed. I see a lot on the forum saying the same thing.

    Any others out there? I guess I should have gotten a Zagg...I ordered a Stainless with sapphire as I love watch, but too anal to deal with scratching.

    On to July...

    I've actually found mine pretty durable, I've play golf, done yard work and even smack it twice now with my metal clasp on my seatbelt in my car and nothing. Perhaps you just got a lemon.

    Will the return be accepted now that you've scratched it?

    Yeah, I'm thinking whatever they coated it with is faulty. I have done nothing to cause so many almost looks like it's from usage of the finger dragging. Guess my manly calloused hands are too much for the face ;-)

    Going to check with support to see what they say

    It seems many Apple products have the problem of having the anti-glare or fingerprint resistant coatings scratched. The glass itself is strong and very scratch resistant, but the coating isn't and so many of the scratches are actually scratches on that. I've experienced this with iPhones.
