    I'm looking into the possibility of using a tempered glass screen protector on my Apple Watch, since I don't care for the look/feel of the "sticker" kind. Can I get some feedback here from some who are using a glass SP, and what're the best brands for fit/finish?

    Thanks! :)

    The problem I have seen with a friends protector is that the edges are quite apparent due to the curvature of the screen. Really not good for me but other may not be bothered by it.

    I'm also concerned that the same problem fitting a glass SP on the newest iPhone screen design will also be an issue with the AW screen, since both feature curved screen edges.

    I would still give it a try if you want. They are not that expensive and my friend swears by his.

    Here's what I found with a glass SP. I had one on mine from day one had my watch for about 4 months or so. Didn't like the way it looked it looked like it was sticking way up on the face. 2nd because the screen is curved the edges didn't lay flat therefore causing dust and dirt to collect under the edges causing a ring around the SP that looked bad. I recently took it off just couldn't take it anymore. I did replace it with a thin plastic SP much happier now. This is my own opinion.

    Ive taken the protector off. I even had the Orzly case and removed it as it sucked. Go naked.

    Yes, these watches are in my opinion too fragile. I have regular watches and never have had to use a protector...why should an apple watch require one. The crystal is made for looks and not durability so maybe that is a reason, but the protectors all look ugly.

    Which Orzly case did you have on the watch? I use the "invisicase" because it covers all the sides and the screen whilst still looking like an Apple Watch

    Yes that one. Rainbow effect. Bulky. I figure I have AC+ so I will just use that. Frankly, I have never owned a watch where the crystal was more at risk than the iwatch. Apple chose looks over design making the crystal vulnerable. All the watches should have had sapphire crystal, the edges protected and not curved.

    Spent days looking for screen protectors. I didn't see any tempered glass ones that cover the entire screen or the curves.

    Not sure what you mean here. I've installed two tempered glass protectors on the latest iPhones. They were done in 5 minutes. Absolutely no issues.
