ZAGG offers premium protection for flagship smartphones manufactured by Apple, Samsung and Google. A protective coating is also available for iPad tablets and Apple Watch.

The peculiarity of ZAGG glasses is in certain properties for some models:

  • Shock-absorbing layer means the presence of an additional coating to soften the impact as a result of a fall.
  • Blue radiation protection-filtering of the blue spectrum emitted by the screen to reduce the visual load on the eyes.
  • Hybrid coating is a combination of strength and flexibility, which allows you to withstand high loads without breaking.
  • Antibacterial spraying-prevents the spread of bacteria on the surface of the glass.
  • Confidential filter-does not allow you to view the information on the smartphone screen when viewed from the side.

Protective accessories are subject to a limited lifetime warranty. For example, if the glass or film is worn or damaged, the company will provide a new protective coating, provided that the device for which the product was purchased is available. Detailed conditions are described on the official website.
