Geir I am in your exact same position! If you take it to apple it will cost around $230-$270 to get it fixed. Might as well get a whole new watch at that point! If you find a place to purchase the glass please keep us updated. I am sorry but i don't believe phoneopsplus 's answers were very helpful. I did a search on e-bay and found quite a few options to buy there, however the quality of those or the materials they are made out of are basically unknown. . . good luck!

Shishmee, just to point out, eBay screens are trash.

Also, you would be jeopardising the watches water resistance.

The Apple watch has the OLED screen and glass digitizer preattached, they are not separate.

Hi,

I believe it only comes with the OLED and glass digitizer preattached.

Saying this, it is also a difficult repair and you will damage things opening it.

Opening it will also make it lose its water resistance, I would highly recommend you take it to the Apple Store. :-)

Supports your concerns, but my glass is broken (hole in it), so it is for sure not waterproof now :-)

There is a good step by step video on how to change the glass, but I cant figure out where to buy the glass....

I would highly recommend you take it Apple, that way, you will either get a new screen (with full water resistance back to original) or they will replace the device.

No point buying just the glass, as it is preattatched to the screen.
