- silicone covers and covers for the case;
- replaceable straps;
- protective films for the front and back panels;
- glasses for Apple Watch.
The fact is that the owners of 'smartwatches' use them on a daily basis. And since an expensive gadget is always on the wrist, it is almost impossible to protect it from blows. No one is immune from awkward movements, and even the sapphire crystal of a watch can break if dropped on a hard surface.
Why do you need protective glass
The task assigned to the protective accessory is to take the hit upon itself. Such an accessory is equipped with a silicone rim, in which the glass itself is fixed. That is, if damaged, there will be no fragments that could injure your fingers or scratch the smart watch screen.
iWatch is not a quartz watch familiar to many, but practically a mini-computer with great functionality, so the repair of the gadget will have to be entrusted to professionals. Services such as disassembling and repairing glass on products Apple are not cheap in service centers. But it will hardly be possible to manage on our own.
There is an iFixit expert opinion on the maintainability of 'smart watches': the score is 5 out of 10. Therefore, experts still recommend using all kinds of protection when using gadgets. The problem is with the device itself. If a simple repair is required – glass plywood or battery replacement, then it will not be difficult for the master to do this. However, careless actions can easily damage the loops, after which it will be impossible to restore the watch.
