Injection Molding, Screen Protectors, and Watch Straps

Preparations for production continue! Here’s a sneak peak at the injection molds, the new (and free!) screen protector, and some details on the watch strap.

Injection Molds

Ever wondered how injection molds are made? We wanted to know as well, so we asked our manufacturer to share some pictures and videos from behind the scenes. Here you see the molds being machined; we’re expecting to get some samples next week.

Here’s a clip of it in action:

Screen Protector

We’ve been working with a manufacturer that specializes in phone screen protectors to develop a custom one for Watchy! It’s designed to perfectly fit Watchy’s 1.54" E-ink display and is made of tempered glass. Every Watchy Kit will come with a screen protector for free!

Watch Straps

Some of you have asked what watch straps are supported by Watchy. Both the injection molded case and the CNC case support standard 24 mm watch straps. All Watchy Kits come with a quick-release silicone watch strap in black.
