Are you talking about the M2? It's for underwater shooting.

The second lens protector for the WG-M1 is likewise for underwater video. It is not as large or square in shape as the underwater cover for the M2, but it serves the same purpose.

Yes, it is required for underwater use. You must remove the normal, dome-shaped lens cover and use the flat one. You also should change the field of view of the camera to the underwater setting. It does not affect video operation.
