Can scratches on an Apple Watch be buffed out.

I did buy a 3 step plastic scratch remover for a Bubble Hockey dome, that worked pretty well.

Was looking at this Apple Watch 3 on CL, but it has plenty of scratches.

Any chance for removal?

Doubt that plastic scratch remover will do anything. Apple Watches have a glass front. Looks like it would need an awful lot of polishing to get those scratches out. Might be better to replace the glass.

I had a decent scratch on my Apple Watch. I bought a few screen protectors made for the Apple Watch, after applying I could not see the scratch at all. The "touch operation" of the watch with the screen worked just fine. The inexpensive protectors I bought for the watch lasted for a good few months before starting to peel up slightly on edges, I then just pulled screen off and applied another one. Maybe this solution could work for you as well.

This is what I used... SuperShieldz Screen Protector from Amazon.

I've used an abrasive glass-polish on my watch to get out scuffs.

But those are gouges.

Not gonna be able to simply polish those out.

And you really want something newer than a Series 3 Apple Watch. The series 3 version is hobbled by a very limited memory and because of that is just barely able to keep updated. Also the older well used Apple watches are definitely losing battery capacity. I suggest looking for an SE.
