Question [Q] Protective Plastic?

This might sound like a daft question, but after receiving my G Watch this morning and taking off the protective plastic on the back and screen, I noticed there is some more plastic stuck on the sides.

However, these pieces of plastic do not want to come off very easily, and leave a small amount of sticky residue. I'm wondering if they're meant to be left on the device.

Does anyone know either way if these pieces of plastic on the side are to be removed?

I see the bits you mean, they look like they should be removed, but for some reason when you peeled them off you didnt get most of the glue off, im thinking i may leave them on so the edge of the watch doesnt get scratched

Yeah. I decided to bite the bullet and peel them off. They weren't easy to get off, but after rubbing my finger over the area they were stuck on to, it seemed to shine up and match the finish of the rest of the watch.

Anyone else wonder why the gold is not very bright?
