I have bought the cheapest and biggest "Hydrogel" protector on ebay. I think it was for Samsung Galaxy Note for 2,99€ shipped or something like that. Enough material for 8 Bangles :)
Cut it roughly (some mm extra all around) with scissors. Then apply it to the bangle and wrap as good as possible. The stuff is relatively flexible. Then I have cut around the glass using an scalpel (exacto knife or sharp box cutter should work). The hydrogel does not create a perfectly flat surface, but that is only visible in some light conditions. Small (1mm radius) bubbles vanish on their own in about 2 days.
Do multiple light passes. To much pressure will make you slip and cut your fingers, the bangle case, or the protector over the glass. On my pictures you can see a little slip on the bottem right. It goes a little bit further on the case, but it is not easy to show on a picture.
I had tried protectors for my BIP S, but screen curvature and outer corner radius is to different to work well.
Wow, really nice, and great job ! (and really good looking watchface, is it in the App loader ? ;-) )
