Good Screen Protector IF Installed Correctly
Posted by: TheComputerWhisperer from: on
The included installation instructions are not very clear, but thankfully I have a fair amount of experience installing screen protectors.
Here is a tip for those who haven't installed plastic screen protectors for smartwatches before:
-After applying wipe to adhesive, align the protector the best you can on the screen.
-Press down firmly on the protector with the plastic tab still attached.
-Take the included microfiber cloth and double it up on top of the plastic tab.
-Now use the included squeegee to firmly smooth out the protector.
-Remove plastic tab.
-Use squeegee to smooth out any bubbles.
-When almost all bubbles are gone, use the microfiber cloth one last time and focus pressure where any remaining bubbles are. Be sure to get the edges of the screen so the protector lays flat.
-It will take about 24 hours for the tiny bubbles remaining to work themselves out.
Take a look at the picture of the finished product. Hope this helps!

I have always loved Zagg, but had moved to a different product for my recent iPhone 6 purchase. When looking for an Apple Watch protector totally forgot about Zagg until reading some online reviews about how great it was. I was not disappointed. Went on really easy when following the directions, no air bubbles after it had dried and everyone comments they cannot even tell I have a protector on. Very satisfied. And I see a previous review on here says not able to register on Zagg, while it required I did a search instead of picking from the drop down I was able to register the Apple Watch product on the Zagg site instead of having to use the "generic" watch cover option.

This is a great product to help product your Apple watch. I would recommend it to anyone that is looking for that extra protection. It was easy to install and what is nice is Zagg offers a lifetime replacement on this product once you register it.

I have a 42mm Apple Watch. I have a fear of damaging my Apple Watch screen, so I got this screen protector. The directions for installation are useless! I kept trying to lineup the yellow film, but nothing was sticking. After about five minutes of trying, I realized the screen protector came off on the film you peel off. This made installation even more difficult. I managed to get the film on my Apple Watch mostly lined up. I used the very edge, almost corner, of the squeegee to get the majority of the bubbles out from under the film. There are a few small bubbles left, but I am hoping they will work themselves out over time. I'm also hoping this product is as good as advertised. I will be very disappointed if it doesn't work.

Not very grippy
Posted by: icedtea1967 from: on
This screen protector lasted about a week. The edges don't go far enough over the sides and it quickly began peeling up. The price is way too expensive for a weeks worth of protection. I bought Skinomi protectors that only cost $15 for 6 and I've been on one of their protectors for three weeks now.

Save your Money!

The only reason I gave it one star is because the star rating system on this site will not accept zero! Corners constantly peel up, never adhered to the glass properly from day one. Poor design!!

Great Idea, Not So Great Execution
Posted by: DelawareGuy84 from: on
I purchased this product because I have used Zagg protectors before on my iPhone and iPad, however, the Apple Watch screen protector seems to be nearly impossible to apply evenly in order to avoid proper adherence to all four corners.
If proper adherence was easier to achieve, this product would have received a minimum of four stars, however, it becomes a $19.99 waste of money if even the slightest portion of a corner does not adhere correctly.

Seamlessly protects screen
Posted by: mrrevierwer from: on
I'm a huge fan of zagg screen protectors. They have quality protectors that are backed by an unbeatable replacement plan. Before buying I was worried it would be extremely notifiable as its on a smaller device. However, after several weeks I can safely say no-one ever notices its their. Works extremely efficiently, as it has saves my screen from various deep scratches, because of my carelessness. BEST BUY for apple watch screen protectors.

Protects watch face but...
Posted by: PMay68 from: on
But since the cover is made to cover more than just the flat face surface, the corners and edges do not stay down. You can see that there is a shield on the watch. I'm answering no I wouldn't recommend because when you pay $19.99 for a tiny square of shield you expect it to look better.

Having used Zagg protectors in the past I did not hesitate to pay the price for a screen protector for my Apple Watch. This was a case where I wish I would have read some reviews before buying. Due to the curved design of the watch face the corners started to lift up after only a few days. Will keep it on until it gets really bad and then either go without or replace it with a glass shield that covers just the flat surface of the watch.
