Apple Watch 7/6s/+ case/screen protector question
Posted by: Spiff

So I just got my new watch (yay!). 41mm aluminum midnight. Looks good! I tried to order a screen protector as I am hard on my watches. Zagg advertised a 41mm screen protector, but when I got it, it’s listed as a 40mm cover. Same with Spigen watch case. Bought it listed at 41mm, but box says 40mm.

Send them back and wait? Try them to see if they will work? Thoughts?

If I got them at AMZ, they'd go back as not as advertised.

It sounds like some vendor was operating on the CEfGW principle.

Or — Zagg sent the right protector/cover but in a non-updated box

Zagg is normally a really good company.


All that said, a 40mm cover would protect nearly 100% of the screen, and the edges of the S7 as well as the face are supposed to be tougher than the S6.

And giving the steep curve of the glass, I wonder if a 41mm plastic protector that ships flat would stay on the curve of the crystal without lifting up and peeling off.

When I put protectors on my 'Tags, they didn't lie flat. I had silicone cases and put the 'Tag in the holder backwards so the silicon back held the protector flat over night.

End result, perfectly flat adherence to the 'Tags curve surface, with no lifting at all.

You might want to consider doing something similar for the Watch, regardless of what cover you decide on.

Thanks, RAM! I got the screen cover from ZAGG directly. The case was from AMZ. I probably will return the case and try the ZAGG screen protector

I bought these Misxi's and like them. Easy on and off and pretty thin. One of them has already saved my 6 Watch, was helping my son with an equipment repair, should not have been wearing the watch.
Yes I have hairy arms.

Happy to report that the ZAGG face cover went on well. It's the ultra clear, so not a glass hybrid, but that was the only thing available at the time. I feel better. Thanks!
