Seeking feedback on watch accessory idea

Hi everyone!

Although I'm brand new to the WC community, I've been an avid enthusiast for the past 5 years. I'm seeking your feedback on a product idea I am working on.

My friend and I created an accessory to protect your watch and laptop from scratches. We're making these palm pads out of ultrasuede and the adhesive does not leave residue on any devices once removed.

I originally thought of this idea to solve my own problem, and I'm curious if others have experienced the same issue of your watch bracelet scraping against your laptop.

Any thoughts, feedback, or recommendations are welcome!

Brilliant! Usually I just take my watch off if working directly on the lap - for those times I'm not wearing a leather strap, that is.

Great idea! It would be even better if it covers the edges of PC because it is usually where the bracelets get scratched.

I am the same, usually take my watch off when working on my laptop. This would allow me to keep my watch where it is. 馃槂

Excellent idea. I hope you'll let us know when they are ready for purchase.

Gives pocket protector vibes tbh

Cool idea. I don't mind getting bracelets scratched up, but anything to help reduce wear does help. Would be great if the pad overlapped over the edge. You just have to make sure it still closes correctly.

Totally great idea.

Makes sense, though it looks like the current iteration is sized for a MacBook pro, unfortunately there are plenty of other laptops on the market with different sized palm rests made from different materials, so assuming you want to offer the pads for more than just MacBooks you would need to validate both size for more models and confirm that there would be no residue after removal on other case materials

Thanks Rafael! That's a great idea. I can play around with the dimensions and see how much it would affect the ability to close a laptop.

Wow this community is awesome. Thank you all! We launched a site last week to friends and family, but based on all of your feedback I'm feeling more comfortable sharing it publicly now: https://19thand.com/
