    So my new Band should arrive Nov 2, but the screen protector wont until Nov. 7th.

    What should I do? Maybe cut out one of my 1520 protectors?

    LOL, seriously? Keep your band in the box and don't touch it ... ever! ;)

    I'd worry more about a clasp protector:

    Huh, I hadn't thought about that. I preordered my Band 2 and screen protector, and just assumed they would arrive at the same time. Wearing the Band without the protector, even for a few days, kind of eliminates the need for the protector, because there will likely be scratches by the time the protector arrives. I was a little surprised that the protector wasn't included, like it was with the Band 1.

    Where did you order the screen protector? What brand? The glass on band 2 should be strong and scratch resistant compare to the first generation band.

    When I preordered the Band at the MS store, they asked if I wanted the screen protector, no details on brand.

    I am just wondering if the Gorilla Glass 3 actually doesn't need a protector. I can't find much (one link attached) in the way of formal testing, anyone know?

    With the original band, some people mentioned just putting a strip of Scotch tape over it until they could pick up a screen protector.

    Never really saw any Band 1 screens, just scuffed up bezels. Wonder if this Gorilla Glass will be the entire display area including bezel this time around?

    Going by the available photos, that's the way it looks to me, the bezel is also covered by the glass. So now we just need to fret about that clasp.......

    I wonder if the UV window within the clasp is also Gorilla Glass, as judging by the picture above it may be vulnerable to being scratched up as well.

    So is there a consensus here as to the need or not for a screen protector. I found the Armour Suit ones for my Band 1 to be a pain in the neck. No matter how carefully applied the edges would soon begin to come up and off.

    I've used my Lumia 1020 which sports Gorilla Glass 3 for almost two years without screen protector and the display got in contact with keys, coins, sand, etc. and only has some very very small and barely noticeable scratches. (I always laugh at people who have to put a screen protector on their (i)phone ) I will go for it and use the Band 2 without a screen protector
