    Not that I'm about to test it, but I believe I read it was "scratch resistant tempered glass"

    It is glass yes.

    However i put on an invisible shield (zagg.com) for extra protection. Something i don't usually practise.:p

    I can confirm that it is glass. However, like other glass, you can scratch it with sharp metal things.

    I have tested this method using my car keys, regrettably it works very well. :-(

    Oh dear, that's a bit worrying then. What screen protectors are considered the best to use then? Which ones/where did people get theirs?

    i can confirm its glass and i can confirm its scratchable by metal objects

    i put my watch in my pocket last night as it ran out of batteries. forgot my phone was there till about 10 mins later

    got my phone out and there is a little scratch near the top. im gutted

    get that invisible shield if you dont want the same fate
