    i'm looking for something like this to protect the whole top of Teric from scratches, not only the glass screen:

    (these are Suunto screen protectors)


    I've tried both of them and the first is way too small, and the second has too short rubber ring, despite covering the screen well.

    Someone can chime in here, but the teric screen is made of sapphire. So unless your running a diamond ring against it or a power grinder your going to be hard pressed to scratch it. I have a Tag watch that I bought over 10 years ago and was my daily wear for those years and the Stainless is pretty dinged up but the glass is flawless, and it is actually convex and raised above the metal. You could look at Narked at 90’s bully bars and add a stick on screen protector. Dive Right in Scuba sells both.

    and that's what i'm trying to achieve - protect the whole top of the computer not only the glass (see picture 2)

    FYI, the insert with the Teric when you buy one states that it already has a screen protector on it. I don't want to test Shearwater's statement, of course, but that is what it says!

    Those bullbars look like a good idea. Saw someone wearing a Teric the other day and the black surround was pretty beat up. Cave diver.

    FYI, the glass protectors that come with it seem to crack and shatter pretty easily 2 dives and I need a replacement already.

    Shearwater is no longer providing those glass protectors for the Teric; they have shifted to vinyl....not breakable. So says the Shearwater tech who sent my Teric back (battery replacement) without the broken glass protector on it.
