If you’re looking for Apple Watch screen protectors, we’re rounding our favorites up for you. The Apple Watch is not only a life companion, but it’s also a fashion statement. It could be your best gym buddy or personal trainer, just as well as it can be an accouterment complementing your attire. We already rounded up some of the best Apple Watch bands to use for most occasions, and now we’re giving you some of the best options to keep your Apple Watch pristine.

Whether you’re at the gym, on the court, at the office, or just living your daily routine, chances are you will, at one point, end up scratching the glass on the Apple Watch or scuffing its case. To prevent that, check out the screen protectors below, and make sure your wearable stays just as shiny as it was the first time you put it on your wrist.

This tempered glass protector is anti-shatter and scratch proof, with a 9H hardness rating. Features polished rounded edges and 98% transparency.

If you’re among those power users who expose their Apple Watch to extremes, don’t worry if a classic tempered glass, TPU, or film screen protector won’t just cut it. IF you’re mountain climbing, river rafting, playing football, or any other activities that put the integrity of your Apple Watch at risk, you might want to consider a more advanced protective solution.

That’s what the Apple Watch cases are for, offering extra protection for the watch, in addition to protecting the screen itself. Check out three popular options that we recommend, for the elegant, the casual, and the active.

V85 Shock-proof Protector

This TPU bumper is shock-proof and shatter-resistant, offering full edge coverage to prevent scratches, drops, bumps, and other abuse.

When it comes down to our personal preferences, we like the minimalist approach, because we prefer to show off the beauty of the watch itself. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, of course, and your tastes could be different, but we think you shouldn’t cover up leather seats with fabric covers.

That’s why our favorite is the ZAGG InvisibleShield HD, as it is seamless in providing that extra layer of protection for the glass on your Apple Watch. Being military-grade, and featuring self-healing capabilities, it also ensures you don’t have to swap them out very often as they tend to regenerate and fix light scratches.

For the reasons we mentioned above, we don’t like the case approach, but we’d pop on a V85 Shock-proof Protector when Crossfit training and weight lifting, especially if you’re working with kettlebells. Those of you who are active at the gym know what we’re talking about, as you always have to take off your watch to protect it when you’re handling kettlebells above your shoulders.

For the flashy among us out there, if you’d like to stand out with a blingy watch, Umtele Rhinestone Protector. It comes in several colors, and it really stands out as it shines from all those crystal rhinestones.
