Whether you work with computers or in a workshop with power tools, accidental scratches on your Apple Watch are inevitable. It makes sense to protect your device with appropriate protective gear and that’s why I have made a list of best cases and screen protectors for Apple Watch. Let’s check it out.
1. Plastic Screen Protector for Apple Watch 6
The front Glass is probably the most fragile part of the entire Apple Watch and if you want to add some minimal protection, a sleek screen protector should be enough for the job. The screen protector itself is just 0.2mm thick and covers the entire screen all the way to the edges. As the Apple Watch is really small, applying the screen protector is really easy and if you crack it in the future, you have five spares to last you a long time.
2. Glass Screen Protector for Apple Watch 6
As much as Plastic is sleek and less obvious when applied, plastic gets scratched more easily than glass. It also doesn’t offer much protection against drops and metal. That’s why a Glass Screen Protector is a better choice if you want more protection. Spigen ProFlex is a durable screen protector made out of tempered glass and offers superior protection to regular plastic. It also comes with an easy installation kit that would ensure you can easily apply the screen protector by yourself. The two-pack costs $12.99
3. Clear Case for Apple Watch 6
Protecting your Apple Watch with a Glass screen protector is fine but it is limited to just the front screen. However, if you want all-around protection for your Apple Watch then a Clear Case makes the sense here. Made with TPU, BRG Clear Case envelops the front and the sides, offers enough flexibility that it can be slid on like a Silicon cover, and its transparent body doesn’t hide the Apple Watch and you can still show off the colors. The case is available in 38 to 44mm for $6.99 on Amazon.
4. Clear Case with Built-in Screen Protector
This next case brings the best of both worlds in a tiny case that offers a tempered glass screen protector on the front and a TPU case for the sides. However, it is permanently attached and therefore you can easily remove the entire contraption without losing the screen protector. Its design is better in my opinion as it doesn’t reach all the way to the back of the Watch therefore it won’t dig into your skin while wearing the watch on your wrist. The case is available for both 40mm and 44mm variants for $6.99.
5. Spigen Ultra Hybrid Case for Apple Watch
Spigen is the trusted brand when it comes to Apple accessories and Spigen Ultra Hybrid Case is just like any other clear case but offers better quality material, raised edges around the screen for better bump protection, precise cutouts for easy access to the crown and the button, etc. The Case is available for 40mm and 44mm Apple Watch on Amazon for $10.99.
6. Bumper Case for Apple Watch
Bumper Cases are awesome, they’re built for use, abuse, and continuous wear. The Case by Elkson is no different; made with high-quality TPU, it offers a shock-proof design that is precisely cut so that your Watch and straps fit perfectly. Even though the case doesn’t have a screen protector but it has raised edges around the screen that should protect the screen from drops. You can get the case in Black, White, and Military Green. The case is available on Amazon for $11.99.
7. SUPCASE Rugged Case with Straps
Instead of offering just a case, this rugged case also offers matching straps to go with the Watch and makes the Apple Watch really durable. The Watch sits snuggly in the case that is shock-resistant and built to handle drops, bumps, and high-stress. The case is available in 11 different colors and you can get it on Amazon for $19.99.
These were a few of my top picks for cases and screen protectors you can get for your Apple Watch 6. I tried to include a pick for every use case and you shouldn’t have a problem in finding a pick for yourself.
