If you have an iPhone, there’s a good chance by now that you also have an Apple Watch. We’ve rated it as the best smartwatch and best fitness tracker for iPhone owners. It dominates the smartwatch category, with over a third of the market share. Even if the iterative improvements in last year’s Series 7 (8/10, WIRED Recommends) didn’t blow any minds, it’s still one of the most durable, comprehensive, and comfortable connected wearables available for the money.
Personally, I’ve never cracked an Apple Watch screen or case. Apple does offer an extended warranty plan, which I would consider, given that service pricing for watch repairs is exorbitant. In the event that you turn it down, however, these screen protectors and cases can help extend the life of your indispensable timer/alarm clock/sleep tracker. We also included some of our favorite straps and chargers.
Still haven’t decided which Apple Watch to get? We have a buying guide for that too. And check out our Best iPhone, Best iPad, and Best MacBook guides for more Apple recommendations.
Updated November 2022: We added new accessories and a new band for the Apple Watch Ultra.
