    Default Is the GG susceptible to accidental cosmetic damages? Anyone noticed on theirs?

    I try to "baby" my watch as with all i precious items and am curious is you all have noticed any minor scratches on the face or scratches on the steel speaker, etc due to any minor accidental dingings to counters etc? I know that i expensive watch has major cosmetic damages and i definitely dont want that to happen to my GG.

    Mine is still just as clean, cosmetically, as it was on October 5.

    I wear mine daily.

    the more and more i look at the color of that sticker (dark grey i think), the more i like it. tough decision.

    As most of us in here, I have had many phones and tablets and I suck at putting on skins and screen protectors. Thats why I usually hand them to my wife as soon as they come in the mail.
    Because of the smaller size of each sticker I thought I would give it a try. It really didn't take me very long to do it. actually the only one I had any kind of struggle with was the clasp. It had a little fold that was hard to get rid of. . The front, sides and back really went on easily.

    They look pretty cool, trying to decide between clear full kit and the brushed metal one. Well I got the clear kit.

    I circled where it is at. You can barely see it in the pic, but it's fairly noticeable.

    i've hit the watch a couple of times on a few things and caught my breath, but alls well with mine. i'm pretty careful with my toys, but a watch is just out and in jeopardy as a matter of course. can't bring myself to put protectors over the metal and certainly not on the glass....hate them.

    That is the one I got coming. My GG is the Jet Black, so the Black Carbon Fiber should look real tight!!..

    Same here, I have reached down in my car for something, and click, I hear the watch hitting something. I am putting clothes in my dryer, again, I hit something. No scratches. The stock watch is pretty dam tough to start with. But, I gotta go with this new thing. Funny, I paid about $13 for two different brands of screen protectors from Amazon,
    Amazon.com: Tech Armor Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch Premium High Definition (HD) Clear Screen Protector with Lifetime Replacement Warranty [3-PACK] - Retail Packaging: Cell Phones & Accessories
    Amazon.com: ArmorSuit MilitaryShield - Samsung Galaxy Gear Screen Protector Shield + Lifetime Replacements: Cell Phones & Accessories

    Never bothered to even open the packages or to return them. The reason was, the GG is really durable. But, this new thing, I had to jump on that, and I will put the black carbon one on... Hope it is not bulky. Hoping somebody posts up some pics with it on..

    Hi all, I got the Skinomi Clear protector. I'm not particularly good at putting these things on. I've ruined a few in the past on plain flat phones and tablets. When I saw all the little pieces with this, it looked intimidating. But, I decided that I would just take my time. I followed the directions. Put on in this order: front face, top front, bottom front, each side (these skinny little pieces were not easy), clasp (the worst, hard to get it to stick to the curves) and finally the back. I put on each piece and let it set for 15-20 minutes before the next piece. And now that the back is on, I see what other people have said--the charging cradle won't close. BUT--the good news is--it doesn't have to. It can charge not snapped shut, as long as the contacts touch. So, it's all good. It is now turned off and will just sit for the 12-24 hours to dry and set. I feel much better having the protectors on. I just know I will scratch this thing; it's just a matter of time. Had a couple close calls already. Whew. Done. Thanks to everyone in the forum! So wonderful to have company, help and fun! Elly44

    Thanks for that report. You are correct in saying they look intimidating, and that is one of the reasons I haven't put mine on yet!! I wanted to read some reports and search out some vids on how to do it first. As you say, they are a lot of little pieces there. From your report, I will put on a one piece at a time. I am in no hurry.

    Again, thank you for your well worded report. If you could be so kind as to post a picture too..

    Go back and get one!!

    Yesterday, I was went on a long bike ride in the cool weather.. Finishing up the ride, I wanted to call home to have the wife have a hot meal ready and waiting. I stopped at a supermarket, pulled out my Note 3 and called my wife. Called her three times and she didn't answer.. Oh well, put the Note 3 back in my backpack, put on my gloves and ready to ride the 10 miles back home. About 5 miles later, my GG buzzes me, I got a call coming in.. I pulled over, look at that GG, it is my wife calling back. I hit the "accept" call and started talking. I told my wife I was on the move and just wanted to know if she was home, and if so, could you have me a nice big juicy steak waiting for me when I get back which will be about 15 more minutes? She complied.. Pulled back out on the road and yes, the steak was good.. It would have been really bothersome to unpack that backpack to get to my phone. Not only that, I answered the phone right then and there because of the GG. Alos, my wife heard me loud and clear, and even with my bad hearing, I heard her well. The Galaxy Gear does have a nitch to fill.. And for me, it fills it well..
