    I got my Band this morning and it had already collected a whole bunch of finger prints. I wiped it off with my t-shirt and, upon further inspection, found that my shirt scratched the entire black plastic area around the display. I suppose it will get scratched eventually, but with in 12 hours!? Seriously...

    Didn't it come with a screen protector?
    It does if you order it online.

    Yup, you should really put that screen protector on. There is a reason why MS is giving those away. My buddy at the MS store said "you REALLY want to put the protector on immediately" as if he was told something at the briefing they had last night.

    They were supposed to, but I didn't get one. I'll just make them swap it and then give me my protector anyway.

    Does the protector cover the whole black area or just the actual display area?

    Are MS stores supposed to be giving out protestors? I didn't get one or anything else with mine.

    Yeah... mine is scratched all over the place already, and I've only had it for six hours. The MS Store didn't have any protectors in stock, they're supposed to send me one when they get them, but I'm disappointed. There are literally TONS of small scratches all over the face of the device. None on the actual screen itself, but the entire bezel area is scratched like crazy, and I work in an office at a desk.

    I love the device, but am not impressed by this.

    I always like the idea of a protector, but they are always a pain and even the best look worse than minor scratches. With a fitness band , I dont really see the point of a protector either. You're going to sweat all over this thing several times a week. Keeping it looking mew isn't an option. I say that despite being someone who kind of obsesses about keeping their toys in new condition.

    This is probably where the idea of wearing it with the screen on the inside of your wrist comes from. To protect it from scratches.

    I've always felt that using a screen protector was like having plastic on your couch :P

    Well if you are typing at a desk with the screen facing the desk, I'm guessing a screen protector might be a good idea. Wait, or were you joking?

    I don't think that will help. If I look at my watches, they are all WAY more scratched on the inside band/clasp/buckle then the crystal/bezel.

    The screen protector is JUNK that I was given at the Microsoft Store in Scottsdale. Here are two different Bands with two different protectors.

    I just had a terrible time putting on the screen protector. There's a ton a bubbles and scratches. Most likely my fault. I called MicroSoft and the guy in the call center said he can ship me a new one ($9.99) with free one day shipping (normally costs around $16). Awesome.

    On Amazon, I can see protectors by ArmorSuit that will only sell by Nov 22.

    I didn't have an issue with the screen protector they gave me at the store.

    It took about 5 minutes to apply, but I feel as though it looks great. it's also a great fit.

    Picture below is a shot that shows the screen protector with flash on camera.

    Picture below is a shot without flash. This is what it looks like while wearing it. (You cannot even notice the screen protector.

    How did you manage to get all those scratches? Are you banging your arm against hard surfaces constantly? I don't get it.

    Pretty sure you do not literally have tons of scratches....
