Gloss / Matte / Brushed Skin

Read this first!

If you are installing one of our skins as well as the full clear protector you need to install the skin first. If you install the protector first (and don't let it fully harden) you may damage the protector while installing the bezel skin. Only use the video and instructions below if you have a gloss, matte, or brushed skin. If you have a carbon fiber or wood skin then use this page.

Attention Clear Matte Bezel Skin customers!

If you have a clear matte bezel skin then use this page. The video below is not for you!

What you'll need:
  • Pebble Time
  • Gloss / Matte / Brushed skin
  • Microfiber Cloth (or something similar)

1. Prepare your Pebble Time by cleaning its surface with a microfiber cloth to remove all residue, dust, gunk, etc.
2. Completely remove the clear transfer film from the back of the paper backing.
3. Slowly (by using your fingernails) separate the full protector from the white backing. 
4. Lower the transfer film on top of the skin while leaving the top edge of the skin exposed. It’s important that you leave the top exposed so you can use that edge to line up your skin.
5. Once it’s lowered, use your fingernail to rub the transfer film into the skin. Notice how the top edge is exposed on the top of the skin.
6. Use your thumb to squeeze the transfer film into the skin at one of the corners.
7. Slowly pull the transfer film up making sure that the skin is sticking to it.
8. Slowly line up the skin on top of the Pebble Time making sure not to lower it until you are ready. You’ll need to hover above the surface of the watch, it’s easiest if you use your knuckles to hold your hand steady on the table.
9. When you’re confident that the skin is perfect, start from the center of the watch rubbing outwards and rub the skin into the surface of the watch.
10. Slowly roll the transfer film away.
