    Earlier this month I ordered a pack of screen protectors from Skinomi on Amazon and of course when I got my Watch I tried to install one. Didn't fit. It was WAY too big. I contacted the company and they are supposed to be sending out a replacement set but after cutting one out and fitting it to the display of the Watch I am not happy with the clarity of it.

    Zagg kiosks can cut you a protector made out of HDX and I'm thinking about going that route. Before I do though I want to know if any one here has used HDX before and how it looks or found an good protector besides Zagg? Thanks!

    PS: Yes my Sport already has a small scratch on the display.

    Hah! I did the same thing. Watch arrived today so am gingerly handling it until my armorsuit arrives tomorrow.

    I had been planning on an InvisibleShield HD from Zagg but now that I have seen a few pictures of the Armorsuit actually on the watch, I am leaning that way. I may have to go ahead and order so I hopefully have it when my watch finally arrives.

    I just installed the Armorsuit on my Sport. Its setting right now, about how long did yours take to 'cure'? I'm thinking about just letting it sit all night before I touch it. There are a few streaks underneath it, hoping they dry up quickly.

    I've only used a wet install once on my iPhone and it was years ago, I always use Power Support.

    I let my armorsuit sit for 12 hours. It was well worth it.

    Cool thanks. I installed it but noticed some dust under along with the streaks so I took it off, washed it and reinstalled it. Now I only have some streaks. Gonna let it sit over night, so all-in-all it will be about 15 hours after the second install. Hope most of the streaks are gone by then!

    Would someone from the US-guys be so nice and send me 2 packs of armorsuit - the packs with the two protectors for the screen for 42mm AW??

    Would gladly pay via paypal. You'd send me the Amazon-Package to Germany. I would order them for myself, but Amazon do not ship this product to Germany.

    Will ask the armor suit-guys directly as fallback-solution!

    Thanks in advance!

    I originally went with the skinomi tech glass (left) which was garbage, as the sides of the glass would not adhere properly. Now I'm using the armorsuit (right) and it's great!

    I got the zagg from best buy. Easy to apply bubbles will go away when it dries.

    Anyone care to send me a couple of packs of the Armorsuit 42mm to the UK? Can pay via PayPal and chuck in a bit extra for your troubles.

    Amazon.com won't ship to the UK and eBay sellers want $28 a pack when Amazon sells them for $6 a pack!

    Do the bubbles go away or did I just mess this up? This is an armorsuit protector.

    Awesome. I squeegeed more of the larger bubbles out. Hopefully it ends up looking as good as everyone else's pics

    I tried this one first:

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00W2F67AS/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Pro's:

    Edge to edge screen protection
    Extremely clear

    Con's:

    Though it actually covered the entire screen including the curved edges, I could not get the corners to sit flat on the screen. All 4 corners bubble up no matter how much I pressed them down.


    I ordered the Armorsuit next:

    Pro's:

    Edge to edge screen protection
    Extremely clear
    Corners and edges sit flat
    Comes with 2 films in the package, a spray bottle of application solution, and a quality feeling squeegee but forgettable microfiber cloth.

    Con's:

    On the second day of use the top edge of the protector developed a bubble. I knew with certainty that there was no direct cause, it just appeared. I wasn't home so I didn't have my application solution and really wanted to solve the problem. So I took a drop of water with a bit of soap mixed in and slightly lifted the problem edge. Then I pressed it back down using my finger to squeegee the edge. The protector then sat flat again on the edge and looked as good as it did after the initial install. I'm really hoping this doesn't return because otherwise I am quite happy with it.

    In summary the Armorsuit is worlds better than the other protector I ordered. It was super easy to install and looks great.

    I like that the armorsuit looks like nothing is on, unfortunately to get it shipped to Canada, it's $13+ $8 for shipping.

    Anyone have any experience with a similar screen protector that ships within Canada?

    Armour suit was the best one that I saw on the forum. Looks near invisible. Other ones that I have seen only cover a small portion of the screen which doesn't look great.
