    If I was getting the sport: yes. I am however getting the Apple Watch. So no. :)

    It all depends. If I end up with the Sport, I think I'd opt for a screen protector. I'd be concerned with scuffs and scratches. Your wrist and watch is much more exposed to accidental bangs and bumps.

    Edit: I voted Yes, but that could change if I opt for the stainless model.

    If I do get one I will probably opt for a screen protector, although I still haven't decided if this is a must have.

    I doubt it, I find the screen of my iPhone has barely scratched in the 2 years that I've had it. So, the Apple Watch should be fine too without a screen protector.

    Nope, because of the Sapphire Crystal display.

    Do people put screen protectors on a Rolex?

    No. They are a different style. They typically have the crystal set back and protected somewhat by metal (it acts as a lip on a case). The Apple Watch doesn't have anything protecting the front. I've never had a problem with scratches on watches with the crystal set back. My watches that have nothing protecting the sapphire crystal get scratched with time as they bumped against walls and stuff. However, the sapphire crystal on my Movados might not be as good a quality as Apple has.

    They do make it in black. I was just trying to post the ugliest one to make a point. And I'll add that I never have put my iPhone in an otterbox/lifeproof case for the same reason. Why take something so beautiful and put it in an ugly ass case. Blows my mind.

    If I get an Apple watch I doubt I'll get a screen protector.
    My Rolex has nothing to protect the crystal, which sits above the case, especially the cyclops:

    Despite 20 years of near daily use the crystal is in great shape:

    If I would've gotten the stainless steel and, thus, a sapphire crystal on the watch...then I would not put a screen protector on it. However, seeing I got the Sport and I have no idea how that Ion-X glass will hold up, I got a screen protector. I've scratched phones in the past and it sounds like the same glass...I put tempered glass protectors on my iPhones now...watch will be the same.

    Give it a week after deliveries and we'll all see how it holds up to all kinds of things drops, hammers, drills, blenders, hell even bullets. Lol!

    That's true! I'll at least have it on until after I see some "tests." Scratches on tech REALLY bug me. It's all I can see.

    Heck no! I think that will take away from the beauty of the watch! By the way the testing has already started!

    Well...now that I have my Sport 42 Space Grey...I am leaning toward not putting a protector on. It doesn't cover the entire screen (curved glass) and would look funky. I'll give it a week, but I am probably not at this point.
