The Watch is here, according to Apple's website, but the Watch isn't really available until June for those who weren't lucky or smart enough to pre-order it. The one good thing about waiting is it gives you time to order your Apple Watch accessories like screen protectors, Watch stands and charging docks. Today we will be looking at a few available cases and screen protectors for Apple's wearable device.
Pickings are a little slim at the moment since the Watch just officially launched today. These aren't necessarily the best options, but they're currently some of the only options. Popular Apple accessory makers, like Otterbox and Griffin Technology, have not announced their Apple Watch accessories yet.
If you think buying a case for your Apple Watch is silly, but still want extra protection from scratches, then Zagg's InvisibleShield is what you're looking for. The Zagg InvisibleShield for the Apple Watch is a thin film that covers your display to protect against accidental damage. The screen protector also helps keep the original fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating of the Apple Watch from wearing down from usage. Zagg promises each InvisibleShield provides HD-quality clarity and will stop your display from being accidentally scratched. The InvisibleShield also comes with a lifetime guarantee.Get the InvisibleShield HD for the 38MM Apple Watch
The Apple Watch Case by Spigen is a small ( 0.8mm thick) snap-on cover made of lightweight TPU material. It features cutouts for the digital crown and Watch sensors. The case is also supposed to be easy to remove and does not obstruct you from changing bands. This looks like a decent solution for Apple Watch owners who are active and are worried about bumping or slamming their Watch, but we haven't personally tested it.
