    Apple Watch Series 1 same screen as series 2 & 3 ?
    Do the series 1 have the same screen as the series 2 & 3? The reason im asking about this is because i was looking at certain accessories, for example the curved "3D" glass screen protectors and it says that it is made for the series 2 & 3, but when asking the store owner he says that they work for the series 1 as well.

    So does series 1, 2 and 3 all have the same screen, or at least the same screen curvature so that the curved glass screen protectors fits all three series? If yes....why do they state that it only is for the series 2 & 3 ?

    The watches are entirely different on the inside, but they all have the same dimensions on the outside and screen.

    Okay thanks, so why have some brands, for example Belkin made a different glass screen protector just for the Series 3 iWatch?

    So their glass screen protector for series 3 works in series 1 as well?
    In that case, strange that they manufacture a new one for the series 3?

    I stand corrected, most of the models are the same height and width. However, the depth has changed and the newer models have a couple of cases where the width is more. But they are all very close.

    So depending on the Series 3 watch, something from series 1 would work and vice versa, and others might just be too tight or not work. Since the series 3 is the largest, anything meant for that should technically work with Series 1 and 2.
