tempered glass, for hero 8 recommended? would it affect quality?

seems that with other gopros you culd just change the glass if it got broken but in the case of the 8 it might not be replaceble. In the other hand is supposed to be stronger lens protector. Do you think is necessary to add tempered glas? would the quality be affected at all when recording?

(I know it's out of stock currently but there are some alternatives in amazon)

Re: tempered glass, for hero 8 recommended? would it affect quality?

I wanted to buy the legit GoPro glass but it’s been out of stock since I got my 8 so I ordered some on amazon, I think I went for the Kupton brand. Hopefully it’s all good, although I’ll probably still order the GoPro one if it ever comes in to stock.... not holding my breath tho
