Six months ago, I purchased a smartwatch. With regular use of it, the display glass emerged scratches over it. While looking for a solution, I was advised by the smartwatch service center to protect my display glass. I should have opted for a smartwatch screen protector beforehand.

Does a Smartwatch require a screen protector? 

So, Yes Smartwatches do require a screen protector. Well, this was justified, protectors have not limited their access to phones or tablets but, it is too beneficial for nowadays trendy smartwatches.

Should you opt for the smartwatch screen protector?

Okay, as of my conclusion, you should. Protectors not only just avoid scratches but have some more benefits associated with them. Here are some listed benefits! 

1. For much-needed Protection 

The first and foremost reason you need protectors is to avoid any unfortunate occurrence (such as falling from height or getting hit somewhere). 

Apart from that, protectors are dust and dirt-resistant-free. Some of the smartwatches do not possess scratch-resistant screens. So, protectors are much required in these smartwatches. 

2. Good sell-value

If in the future, you tend or develop a thought of selling your smartwatch then a screen protector could help you out. 

Yes, you heard the right screen protector will help you to have the best sell price, as sell prices are graded on the appearance of the device. 

A newer look in a better condition would help you to have a better resale value. 

3. Modified look

Well screen protectors are available in a variety of cases. You can accordingly enable the case of sporty look or opt for some catchy color or sober look. You could modify it as of your want. 

Does every kind of featured smartwatch require a protector?

In search of this, I contacted the smartwatch care center and I was clear about the different features with different adaptability.

So back to the question, Does every smartwatch need to have a screen protector? 

Further to this article, I will clarify whether every smartwatch is required by the protectors or not. Protectors assure you double the protection, opting it would ensure you safe and secure from any occurrence.

But, if you have a smartwatch as compatible as of listed watches below, which are in itself prone to scratches as of their alloyed and metalled body case features, then it would be totally of your choice to have the protectors or not.
