What is an Apple Watch screen made of?

What material is the Apple Watch screen made of?

Most Apple Watch models feature a machined and polished single crystal of sapphire comprising the watch face. Sapphire is the hardest transparent material on Earth besides diamond. The Sport collection features Ion-X glass, which is chemically strengthened glass.

Which Apple Watch has the strongest glass?

The sapphire glass used by Apple is without doubt a strong and more durable material from experience than that of Ion-x they use. The sapphire is more scratch resistant which is why I like it but it is also more likely to shatter if you strike it on something than the ION-X.

How long do Apple watches last?

An Apple Watch will last about three years before its performance noticeably declines and the battery needs to be replaced. At five years, most users will want to upgrade their Apple Watch regardless of whether it still runs.

Does an Apple Watch need a screen protector?

Does Apple Watch need cellular?

You’ll need to have access to either a cellular or Wi-Fi connection if you want to use the majority of your Apple Watch’s features without an iPhone. An Apple Watch can still be used without an iPhone or internet connection, but you’ll run into limits on what you can do.

Is there a coating on Apple Watch?

It is more likely the “scratches” are marks in the oleophobic (fingerprint resistant) coating which is much softer than the underlying glass or sapphire screen. The coating is designed to wear slowly during the life of the watch, so shallow marks will often wipe away.
