    After almost two years of use, I've got a nice worn spot in the middle of the watch screen, which I assume is the oleophobic coating. Anyone else have this?

    My question is this. Should I reapply the coating kit found on Amazon by Fusso to the screen as is, or should I use alcohol to remove the rest of the original coating, then reapply. Or should I just use alcohol to remove the original coating to get rid of the spot on the screen and just call it a day.

    First I would use isopropyl alcohol and remove and remnants of the old coating and see if that is the problem. Then you could reapply a new coating if you want. I don't much care for it.

    I agree with Julien. The oleophobic coating is likely worn in that specific area. Rubbing alcohol first, then you could reapply the oleophobic coating if you desire. I think the display would be more restored than what it is now.
