    I accidentally got a little super glue on my screen, (VERY small speckles)...is it safe to use nail polish remover on a qtip to remove it?

    I would not do that. If anything, try a microfiber cloth with a minimal amount of rubbing alcohol and warm water.

    If it is the sport model, I would not use nail polish remover. The plastic screen would not react well.

    Super glue can only be dissolved with Acetone, but it will most probably ruin your screen, and leave a even bigger mark,
    using any solvent, even rubbing alcohol is not recommended for your screen, and will not disolve the glue

    sometimes just flikking it with your fingernail could help, superglue does not adhere to glass, it just sticks.

    (only try the #4 option)

    if it is just a small spec I would just leave it.

    IonX glass isn't plastic.

    Read much?

    I never claimed it was plastic. I did say "if it is the sport model"

    Whoa, whoa, no need to get upset here.
    Maybe it's just me but what you posted there implies that the Sport Watch has a screen made of plastic which it hasn't AFAIK. The backside is a different thing.

    As far as I am concerned the Sport's screen IS a type plastic. I-ion X glass is closer to plastic than glass.

    I will bet that acetone would react very badly with your I-ion X "glass"

    Upset? I am perfectly calm and relaxed.

    Just use a razor blade/window scraper. It won’t damage the glass but will take the glue straight off.

    And damage any coating on your screen in the process, smart :)

    False. The Ion-X Glass will easily scratch against the Surface with the use of a razor blade. Nor is this a recommendation I would be attempting to the OP.

    It’s glass not plastic at all. I have used acetone to clean my watch more than once. It’s absolutely safe.

    Very few types of plastic are affected by it.
