I can barely tell I have screen protector on my watch how is it uglier? Or are you using those hard shell protector?
hard shell because the "liquid" ones dont ever come off i've heard.

this video helped me with my decision

What do you mean by liquid, the ones where you only pour a liquid and spread it around the display, or the ones where you put a liquid glue and a tempered glass on top of it + cured by UV light?

The first ones are a scam and they won't protect anything.
The second ones will come off just like a regular screen protector, there are videos of people removing them.

Nope, had my 1st gen since it came out. Wear it from 6am till 10pm every day. Not a scratch.
Sapphire glass? I've had stainless steel model in the past screen was perfect with daily use, but now I have aluminum model I put on screen protector.

I've been wearing a series 0 aluminum model every day since they were released 4+ years ago, and the screen is pristine.

I've also never used a screen protector on my iPhones, and I've never had one get scratched or broken.

My series 4 has been a total scratch magnet. I scratched it real bad in an unfortunate pickleball mishap and I use a screen protector now basically to cover up all of those scratches. Since then I've dragged it across a chainlink fence as well accidentally and I'm glad I had the screen protector on for that. I just use the Skinomi skins.

I do. Already saved my screen once. It’s pretty invisible, especially because I also wear a case on my watch. Scratched it somehow once. Took the film off, put a new one on and it was good as new again. I think it helps with finger prints as well.

No screen protector on my Series 2 and now my Series 4. I can't tell you how many times I clipped or banged this thing against something. No crack or scratches.
