I am not going to take any chances with my new Garmin Fenix 5. I am hoping that we will have a good, long term relationship. So far, it looks very promising.

I had shied away from using screen protectors with both my Garmin Vivoactive 3s & Fitbit Ionic. They both had touchscreens and I did not want anything getting in the way.

Not so with the Fenix 5. It does not have a touchscreen. Plus I got the glass version where the screen is not as rugged as the sapphire version. I did some research and many people advised getting a screen protector. I looked around in Amazon and got the ‘Kimilar’ shown above. It did the job — as stated and promised. No drama. It comes with a suction plunger — I assume to remove the protector if need be. I still have two left.

I already had the USB port protectors that I had got for the Vivoactive 3. So, that was handy.

So, just wanted to share.

I guess it is because I am not used to carrying a smartphone.

The Google Pixel 2, I got for Christmas, was my first real smartphone — and I got it for its camera rather than phone functions!

I did a fair amount of research before I got the Ringke FUSION (transparent) case and the amFilm glass screen protector. Given all my cameras I have a fair amount of experience with glass screen protectors. So, at least with the amFilm, I knew what I was looking for.

I know that with the Ringke and amFilm I am fairly well covered and protected. But given my camera background it seems odd to me that the lenses are EXPOSED. Plus, my phone lies around, a lot, DAYS AT A TIME, because I do not feel a need to have it near me or carry it around.

So, I wanted a carrying case. Well, I happen to have the perfect seamstress for that. She is good. Took a bit of cajoling BUT she did not charge me. I think she thinks I did ‘OK’ by her over Christmas.

So, I have this rather neat, thick cloth carrying case, with the cloth doubled for added padding!
