Apple announced the Apple Watch Series 2 and Series 3 screen replacement program on its official website.

Therefore Apple and its Authorized Service Providers will exchange screens for eligible Apple Watches for free.

The Official Announcement:

Apple has determined that, under very rare circumstances, a crack may form along the rounded edge of the screen in aluminum models of an Apple Watch Series 2 or Series 3. The crack may begin on one side and then may continue around the screen as shown in the images below.
