For months my watch has been sitting in my drawer. Main reason is i can't find a good screen protector for the watch. I don't know which one to buy? The ones I have tried the corners peel off . Any suggestions??

Which Apple Watch do you have? The ?Watch Sport has Gorilla Glass, but the ?Watch and ?Watch Edition have sapphire screens which you'd need a diamond to scratch.

I'm not a big screen protector guy. I think it looks bad and ruins the touch feel of the screen. I'd do without, but that's my opinion.

That said, any screen protector is going to be pretty vulnerable to the issue you mention. Seems there isn't enough area to hold the edges in place, especially given the bend radius of the edge of the screen.

I have the original Apple watch, my wife the original sport. Neither of us have screen protectors. Ours look brand new. I also have a number of 3rd party bands that I like to switch off. For formal events, I switch to my gold band and a gold cover (plastic). For hiking and outdoor activity, I may switch to the black metal band and aluminum black cover that has a clear plastic cover. I don't own an Apple rubber band. Neither my wife nor I like them as we sweat under them. She prefers the melanese band and has two, a rose gold she wears for formal events with a rose gold plastic cover, and a SS melanese band for every day. Normally, I wear a SS band with a gold trim and naked SS watch every day.

As Roland said the saphire is really tough but my wife doesn't have any scratches either. Consequently, these covers, seem to me to be a waste. Maybe if I spent all day as a carpenter, or auto mechanic and wore it it would get scratched up so life style dictates.

My black metal cover with the plastic clear top is awful! Seems that there is always some dirt underneath and it shows up when the watch comes on. I bought a black plastic one that has no clear plastic cover but I have broken a few. FWIW- the cover works fine for the finger swiping and access, even with the bits of dust under it.

You may find something like this a good protective cover for the whole watch if you feel your lifestyle can damage of scratch it- The price of these accessories won't break the bank so you might try one and see if it puts your mind at ease.

Amazon product
BTW- these aluminum cases are not polished shiny colors but rather dull finish, like a Gold anodized aluminum. If you want shiny gold, only the plastic ones will look shiny and those are not rugged. Also, while I have the original, the watch series 2 has plenty of same accessories too, just do a search on Amazon.

I have the series 2 gorilla glass one. I'm thinking of just getting a case for it and not getting a screen protector. I've heard the gorilla glass can scratch easily without one on.
