I got a Teric recently with a blue bezel. Love the unit so far but despite having included screen protector from SW, the bezel on the Teric is bonded to the sapphire which is bonded to the AMOLED screen and is not replaceable. Thus I looked into a metal bezel protector to protect the unit and also a way to put it on a bungee mount.

One bungee mount option is the 3D printed ones from Russia. The 3D printed one v2.0 one can be purchased from eBay or Amazon. Unfortunately, despite working well, the 3D printed bungee mount does not work with the screen protector from AMX. I ended up returning it.

On the other hand, the bungee mount by Narked at 90 (based in the UK) works very well with the aluminum screen protector from AMX Teknology (based in France). The distributor for AMX Teknology in America is Paragon Dive Adventure. They restock them pretty often it seems. I got both of them tax-free and without shipping fees from DRIS (Dive Right in Scuba) for $100 total. The holes on the Narked at 90 bungee mount is about 3mm wide and I threaded the small 1/8" (3mm) bungee through it just fine. Another improvement is to maybe find a thinner o-ring to keep the bezel protector on.

The bungee mount is made of PVD coated stainless steel and it's sturdy and machined very well; likewise for the bezel protector but it's anodized aluminum. I used two tiny drops of blue Loctite to keep the watch pins on tight.

I really like this setup as it makes the whole unit as small as my Uwatec/ScubaPro Digital 330M gauge (or Aladin dive computer). Hope this review helps you out.

Looks nice and compact next to the Uwatec bottom timer.

Yes, See Teric and Perdix Cover.
I used a 2mm x 19mm silicon ring. Much nicer.

Nice. Yeah, I saw that thread before and was gonna dig it up to post here. Thanks for doing it! :)

Added a section on construction of both things and blue Loctite tip.

OK, the Blue for the pins, as recommended by Shearwater.
I thought maybe you ere referring to something about the protector!

Haha I use the exact same setup on my teric. Love the bungee mount but it tends to rust a little after heavy use
