It was bound to happen, sooner or later... (damaged your 360?)

    EVERY time I've worked around my house I took it off. It just slipped my mind. Yesterday I was doing a quick repair on my house trying to loosen a bolt. The wrench slipped off the bolt and my wrist went watch-first into a brick. Even a screen protector wouldn't have prevented this... I *slammed* it into the brick. Honestly it could be much worse, and you really have to look for it in just the right light to see it. Still sucks...

    It's a shame, but I had the same thing, just not as bad. I noticed 2-3 small scratches on my face that could only be seen at certain angles... I went to best buy that night and got a screen protector.

    Ouch and damn. Luckily it's just a scratch and not a full-on shatter though :(

    Yeah it could have shattered as hard as I hit it! You really do have to hold it just right to see it and when it's on you can't see it at all.

    Ouch. Sorry, man. Seeing that makes me cringe.

    I know big picture in life this is small potatoes, but putting that aside, I feel for you.

    In the bright side, the 360 is tougher than I thought if it inky took that damage from such a nasty knock.

    Do you think the marks could be polished out of the glass?

    I had a big ol' Casio G-Shock before this, one of the higher-end models that would charge in the sun and set itself. That thing would get knocked around on everything due to its size. As a result, I'd grown a bit accustomed to not worrying about it and getting a bit sloppy with arm movements. I've already knocked my 360 into a couple of door frames as a result. No marks yet, thankfully.

    Does anyone offer tempered glass protectors for the Moto 360?

    In case you want to attempt getting the scratches off:

    I've done the Amonia solution on glass headlights before and worked perfectly, but not sure 'bout the 360.

    Thanks for the suggestions! I don't think I'm quite brave enough to try them though. The scratches aren't that bad and I don't want to risk making them worse.
