    Here are some pics of the BSE (bestskinsever.com) on a Nano 6G in Graphite. All the pieces are on, front, clip, top, bottom, and two side wraps. It runs $7 plus I think a $1 for shipping. Was an easy install. Wet app, but I just ran the battery dead playing radio and there really wasn't any danger of getting the dock or headphone jack wet. Came out really nice. I might have a little water left to evaporate but it came out really clean. Definitely recommend it for any watch wearers or anyone in general to try and keep it from getting scratched up. Not a bad idea to order 2 if you haven't installed many skins, in case you mess a piece up. Still cheaper than Zagg's IS for $20. I also recommend starting with the 2 side wrap pieces as they are a little difficult and take some time and handling. I did they last and put a couple bubbles in the clip piece from the pressure of holding it while putting the side wraps on.

    I'm only interested in the front screen protector. How does it affect the appearance of the screen when it's on?

    Any photos with the screen on?

    Hmmm. Looks like a clean install, but I don't really understand the point beyond the screen protector. If you drop the nano, the corners are still going to get chewed up, despite the skin. I guess it might minimize scratches, but the nano is still gonna get fooked if dropped.

    Screen looks the same. Didn't at first, but after 24-48 hrs to dry, I couldn't tell the difference. There could be a minimal effect I suppose, like I said I didn't notice, but it also isn't like it is an iPhone or something you would play video on. I don't see it when it is on, but it has a sheen when it is off. I didn't take any pics on, I guess I could later.

    It came with all the pieces. I think you can order just the screen, but at the price I didn't see the point. The finish on the aluminum is so nice, it is good to have on the back and edges to keep it from getting scratched up. No, I don't think it would help it from a drop, but hopefully I won't do that.

    Hey, thanks. Some pics would be great if you find the time.

    What about fingerprints..... are they easy to see on the BSE?

    /My Maratec watch strap was just delivered...... this is the lightest watch I've ever worn.

    I don't really get much finger prints. Maybe that's because it is so much smaller than an iPhone and your daily contact is much less. Any prints or smudges I do get wipe in one easy swipe with a iPhone or sunglass cloth.

    Sorry I didn't get pics taken last night of it on. I have my iP4 so if I get a chance I'll snap some one today at work and load it.

    Not sure what you are asking. The skin stops at the clip on both sides of the back and covers the clip itself. I suppose you could use it without putting on the screen portion and even use that if you wanted on the back behind the clip. But the clip will dig into the clip because of the pressure and I don't think you need any coverage back there. SGP makes their film for the 6G, and I suppose you could combine that for the screen with the BSE for the body, but I don't see any real advantage to the SGP over the BSE on a screen so small. I don't think you would notice it being that much better. But if you are wearing it daily as a watch, it could be something to consider.

    On the watch note, short of the announced Incipio band, I can't see myself going the watch route because I whack my watch against door knobs and door jambs and God knows what else all the time, and the whole water, dishes, handwashing aspect makes it too much of a PITA to "care" for my Nano watch. I need something I don't have to think about that can take more abuse.
