    Default GEAR 2 Screen Protectors

    I received my screen protection kit today from Amazon. I ordered this kit from Spigen (which rarely goes wrong)... http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00ING...0-20&m1k=vb_ac. Everything is packaged beautifully and seems very high quality. Now all I need is the frick'n watch! :/

    Why do you say that? Because of scratch resistant glass? GG3? It's good but not perfect. I bump my watches against things all the time. I don't want to risk an inadvertent scratch.

    I sold my Galaxy Gear last week because I am getting the Gear 2 as soon as it shows. Just want to comment, that I had purchased TWO different brands of screen protectors for my 1st gen Gear, but never put either on. One of them was that carbon one which covered everything. Said that to say, from October to now, just wearing the naked watch, not a scratch anywhere. It look brand new when I sold it...The naked Gear build quality is good.

    I get ZAGG InvisiShields at work for free so no biggie, I prefer to have one on for the extra protection, you never know. I'm rough on watches and it doesn't affect the touch screen in anyway, why not.

    Exactly. I have the Spigen. Crystal clear, no orange peel, and no negative impact on performance. It's worth it to me, if for nothing else than peace of mind.

    I hope to get one of these. Waiting for them to release it. As of yesterday Best Buy wasn't carrying them yet. I don't trust myself to not scratch it for as rough as I am about getting things done with my hands.

    Not sure if Best Buy will have them. Amazon has a wide variety of companies and prices. I chose Spigen.

    Best Buy carries InvisiShields and have them for the Gear, just not for the Gear 2 yet.

    I just get either the cell phone ones or a tablet one and cut time, it takes me a whole 2 minutes and one sheet can probably last you a lifetime of the watch. I'm guessing if they come out with InvisiShields for the Gears, it would probably cost a lot more then cutting up a bit sheet of it.

    Invisible shield is 9.99 but they have a stellar warranty. I have done the cut method and was going through them more often than I cared. If done right, it takes A LOT to get the Zagg to look like crap.

    I ordered the illumashield from Amazon for the Gear2, but it doesn't fit the Gear 2. Because of the curved face, the top and bottom of the screen protector peels away. I've had the best results with Boxwave, but they don't list them yet.

    I do that too for things like my insulin pump's screen. Verizon has 3-packs of protectors for dirt cheap IMO, so I buy extras and cut them up for various needs.

    The protector blew off of my Gear 2 today, less than 5 hours post-install. I think the HIGH blower on my vehicle's A/C is what blew it off.

    I ended up getting an Armoursuit shield. Good fit, but lousy feel--too much stiction for my liking.
