    Apple Care+ Yea or Nay

    I had my S3 for 2 years with no problems. Wondering if it is worth it for an Edition watch.

    You may want to read this thread again.

    Drop your Apple Watch from 2 feet and the screen smashes

    The broken screens were sapphire or mineral glass?

    Looking at the photo, I say that looks like glass.

    Sapphire is pretty tough stuff, but it will cleave.

    The broken in that thread was mineral glass (aka "Gorilla Glass®"). It was a Sport model, although the second pic was of someone else's stainless steel model.

    I just use the Spigen case......IMO the Gorilla glass is the only weak point on the watch in case of a drop.............
    I would buy it if I was going for the Edition.

    My display is sapphire but would not want the back ceramic cover to chip.

    Re: Apple Care+ Yea or Nay

    I buy it for two reasons, first for the protection (cracked the edge of the screen on my 3, replaced with absolutely no hassle.
    Second, I have sold my watch 2,3 and now 4 to some of my colleagues at work. In every case, the Apple care gave the new owner around a year of warranty. That’s reassuring to both the buyer and me. For them, they know that they have a warranty, for me it takes me out of the equation should a problem occur. I would really hate to have the buyer/ friend have a problem soon after purchasing the watch and not have any protection.
