Looking after your Apple Watch


Keeping your Apple Watch clean and well-looked-after is one of the most important things that you can do to ensure it stays in good condition. Even though it doesn't have any moving parts, sweat and dirt can still cause damage over time if they're not removed regularly. Below are some tips for keeping your Apple Watch clean – which will help it stay working well for longer:



1. Store it wisely

The first rule of caring for an Apple Watch is to store it wisely. The watch is designed to be worn all the time, and while this makes it a convenient accessory, it can also cause damage if you don’t take care of your new gadget.

To avoid damaging your device:

  • Keep the watch in a safe place where it won’t be knocked or dropped by accident. If you wear it while exercising or doing tasks that involve moving around a lot, keep an eye out so that nothing gets between you and your watch!

  • Avoid extreme heat or cold temperatures—this will prevent mold growth and corrosion of internal components like batteries and circuit boards in addition to giving them extra protection against wear over time due to temperature changes



2. Keep it clean

The Apple Watch is made of a highly durable material, but it's not indestructible. You should still treat your device with care and use the right cleaning materials to keep it looking good.

To clean your Apple Watch screen:

  • Use a microfiber cloth or soft, dry cloth to remove debris from the display. Never use abrasive cleaning materials like paper towels because they can damage the glass surface. Also avoid cleaning products like window cleaner or alcohol; these products could be harmful to the touchscreen display on your watch and could cause permanent damage over time.


3. Swap the straps

If you're going to spend hundreds of dollars on an Apple Watch, then it's only fair that you should invest in some quality straps so that your investment will last. The strap can get dirty and stained, it can stretch over time and become loose or tight, and it can even become damaged if not cared for properly.
