      When I bought this, I bought it because I am an active person and wanted to protect my watch. However, I did not realize that the product would not fit over the screen protector that I had purchased. The first time, Best Buy installed the screen protector and then attempted to install the strap - but they weren’t comfortable trying to force it over the protector before it finished drying. That was understandable, so they told me to wait 48 hours for the protector to finish drying and then put on the strap. Because it is such a tight fit, it proved impossible for me to put it on over the shield without the shield moving. I ended up trying this with 2 different shields and neither one of them fit, so I gave the strap away. I prefer to keep my watch face safe over the sides of it. If you don’t like screen protectors, this will work for you. Otherwise, I don’t recommend it.

      This ‘Rugged’ case doesn’t actually hold the watch inside if you bump it on the ‘rugged’ outside. About 3 weeks ago, I hit the outside corner of it on the edge of a table and the watch actually popped out. I figured I must have hit it in the perfect spot and didn’t think much of it, since this was my second Watch. Used the first band on the original watch for 2 1/2 years. Out in the ocean (and I live on the ocean and have been in many times with the old band) and not by a ‘monster’ 2 foot wave 5 minutes after going out and the watch was gone. Could say a bunch more negative things, but not worth my time. Too mad to care to blast the $75 pelieve of harbage

      Comfortable but poor design

      This watch band is comfortable and feels decently sturdy, I am not worried about band breaking as other reviews have stated. The thing that I find poor in the design is that asa one piece design, you have to push the Apple Watch through the back to get it in the case- no matter how careful you are about doing so, the screen protector will come loose in a corner. I tried with a glass screen protector and it was peeled completely off of the watch, I attempted again with a plastic/rubber screen protector and the corners came up. Once the watch is in, it is snug and the band is fine- but a two piece design would avoid the screen protector issue.

      Just bought this watch case/band and it's perfect. I had a Catalyst and Epik Lunatik previously but this one is far superior. The prevu=ious cases I mentioned are waterproof but with the newer watches that's not necessary as they're already water resistant up to 50 meters. This case isn't bulky and it doesn't interfere with the built in speakers or microphone when making calls. Highly recommended.

      At first I thought my husband would never use this because we did not read and notice it was all one piece. I put it aside as we bought the mesh band and thought this would be a good bumper for work / sport days. However, once he almost scratched at work due to toughness and the original bumper came off, he’s been using this for work and it’s perfect for protection!!

      Poor Durability

      I used the band for several weeks when the piece that holds the excess wrist band broke. Attempted to return in the store but was told that I would have to contact the manufacturer as it was beyond the return period. Could not find any manufacturer contact information so I am out the money. The band looks good and protects the watch but the band is very cheaply made and is not durable at all. Would not recommend.

      Cheap Materials; non-durable

      I used this band replacement to protect the face of my iWatch and immediately thought the materials would not be durable enough for day to day use. After 7-days of use, my hypothesis was proven correct when the watch band tab holder ripped and then 3-days later, the metal clasp broke. Needless to say I am returning this product to Best Buy for a refund.

      I've only used this product for 4 days and the strap that holds the excess band to the watch after you clip it in already broke. So much for rugged. I really want to like this because the actual band and watch protector seem good.
