    Fits perfect on Apple Watch series 3. Easy to install. Adds a little bit of bulk but looks good with invisishields tempered glass protector. Beware... it is very difficult to install the screen protectors. If you are looking for seamless, Good luck:) Peace of mind for small blemishes. I will cry if I break the screen:). You can see the blemish on the upper left and upper mid right in the pics. If you want it to look that good, I recommend taking it to the little kiosk and hope you get an experienced rep. But if it doesn’t look good they will try try try:) Better then try try trying yourself frustrated. Not to mention probably buying a few in the process. Love the peace of mind!

    I love this Defense Edge case for my Apple Watch series three. It is very easy to install and remove, adds very little size to the watch and looks sharp. The one I purchased is a nice dark grey and matches the watch perfectly. The fine edges do scratch/wear pretty easily exposing the white plastic underneath but its very minor and the watch underneath has stayed in perfect shape. I would foresee having to buy a new one once a year (twice if you are a stickler for having a perfect looking watch) but I’d much rather buy another one of these than damage the watch. Highly recommended

    The only case that makes sense!

    I bought this case on a whim while in the store, but it's fantastic! Fit and finish is perfect! The color of the case I bought perfectly matches the "Space Gray" Apple Watch and it adds just enough bulk to make it look more masculine. Even better: I didn't even have to take the watch off to apply the case thanks to its design. Granted, I pinch a couple of my arm hairs in the process, but it went on perfectly. Everything from the digital crown to the other button still work perfectly. You can even still swap bands on the fly and the case does not interfere with that process at all. Now, I don't know what it'll do for protection, but I imagine it'll protect the watch from side bumps against door jambs and whatnot. I have never bumped my watch and bought this mostly for looks.

    It’s a nice looking case

    It’s a nice looking case that makes the watch look larger, which is nice if you have larger wrists. It’s sleek and looks really good on the black watch. If you want a case for this reason it’s a fine choice. If you want to avoid the 227 dollar repair cost for screen damage, I’d look elsewhere. This “case” just doesn’t cover the screen sides, of which no other watch has ever had because it’s so vulnerable to damage. I’ve broken every Apple Watch 0,1,2 so I’ve got experience in this arena. If you purchased the Apple care plus...this is a great choice. I’ve never broken a screen on a phone but this watch isn’t like the phone. It’s always on your arm swinging around. GET THE APPLE CARE PLUS! GET THE APPLE CARE PLUS! GET THE APPLE CARE PLUS!

    I had a Apple Watch series 2 before my recent purchase of the series 3 with cellular and the watch edges had a little bit of dings and scratches before bc I didn’t have anything like this but this time around I purchased this and the screen protector and both are working great to keep my actual watch looking great and scratch and ding free so when I get ready to upgrade to another watch either next year or the year after I can get top dollar out of selling my watch to put torwards my new one thanks to this and it also helps to just keep ur watch working and looking great while u own it currently and gives u a piece of mind while wearing it at work in particular! Would definitely recommend this product!

    After spending the money on my new Apple iWatch, I wanted to get something help protect it as I tend to hit watches up against all kinds of stuff. It most definitely does and will protect my watch. It is metal (aluminum I believe) with rubber liner on the interior to protect and cushion. It definitely matches my space gray watch and looks sharp. However, the watch face till sits up a smidgeon higher than that case, but the case is advertised as an EDGE case, not a "face" case. I put a Zagg screen protector on it and it actually covers almost all of what the X-Doria fails to. This is really just going to be the "glancing blow" that is under protected by the case so I recommend the Zagg to cover the rest.

    Solid Bumper for Series 2 Watch

    Been hunting for a good bumper cover for my Apple Watch series 2 (Nike+ Black/Volt). I loved the X-Doria Defense Edge for the original/series 1 watches. This one has been updated for the different placements of the speakers and the auditional mic opening on the series 2. I’ve had it pop off once when caught on jacket but overall it hold on very solidly. This one is black with fluorescent yellow that very closely matches the Nike Volt color in most lighting. Just a touch more on the yellow side. Very good case. Would recommend.

    The first week of having the product it worked like a charm. The weeks after i was not happy. this type of case clips on to the watch so its not super secure. This means that in the plastic there is a wiring that holds the shape. One of the most annoying things about this cover is that it interfered with the dial on the side of the watch. A few weeks later we went on vacation and i got out of the car at night and it popped off. I got back in the car and it was gone. For that alone its OK when it gets wet but other than that its not good. I got one similar on amazon that covers the whole watch for half the price and works way better.

    Bulky, but Protective

    Considering how often my watch is used during outdoor activities, I'm glad for the extra protection to the metal sides of my watch. It does add bulk, but does not weigh much, and can be easily removed when not needed. A bit expensive for what it is, which is a plastic band that goes around the sides of the watch. Does not protect the top or bottom. Best when combined with a protective covering for the watch face and seems to be compatible with the popular ones I have tried. I may want to look into buying other colors and designs down the line as a quick way to change how my watch looks when I'm feeling it.

    Ok but not full protection

    This works well for the outer area of the watch and it has a nice look to it. The associate at Best Buy told me that the Apple Watch screen protectors tend to come off after a short time so I decided to go with some protection rather than none. The edges of the case sit below the screen, so any type of blow to the face of the watch would not be protected by this. However, it does protect the outer edges. If they make it to where you can have this in addition to a screen protector I think it would be a good combination.

    Does its basic job

    If your looking for something not too bulky and will protect the edges of your apple watch (the frame), then this is it. If your looking for something that will give you more protection then keep looking. The case is great and does its job. it doesn't impede from you accessing its buttons, but it doesn't cover the edge of your screen or give you an edge over your screen so that if the watch were to fall flat on the screen it would be better protected. It does give great protection on the edge of the frame of the watch, while still having a layer of shock protection around it.

    Decent case

    I bought this case to provide some additional protection for my Apple Watch Series Two. It does a decent job of protecting the watch from side impacts. It does not provide enough protection for the screen, as the case does not extend above the level of the screen. The button on the side has a foam-like membrane on the back side. The membrane looks like it may deteriorate or come off after some time. It also traps water between the case and watch when worn in the water. This requires you to take it off and dry it off after submerging the watch. Not perfect but ok.

    I was reluctant of taking away the design of the watch, but on the other hand I had to protect it. To my surprise this one didn’t take too much away from the design and I must point out that the protection is Totally worth it. I did as well purchase the shield face laminate protection. But that’s for another brand.

    Good Protection/Great Look

    I bought this looking for a little protection for my new Apple Watch. I got what I was looking for in this "bumper" type case. I love the way it looks. It added a little beefiness to the over all look. It could add a little better protection by adding a little more height to stick up a little higher than the Apple Watch screen. I have hit my watch a few times and the case took the hit. Over all I am very happy and would definitely buy it again. I bought one from another brand and this is the only one I use. I highly recommend it!

    Good low-profile edge protection

    As the title states, this protective case serves it's intended purpose well: low-profile light-weight edge protection. It fits well, though may need some adjustment IF the crown turning function is restricted from the contact with the interior case rubber lining. All that was needed was a firmer press on the crown side of the case and the fit adjusts all around. It adds minimal bulk and the single-piece design prevents any loss of parts from "snapping off." The easy install/removal also makes interval cleaning convenient.

    Placed on watch and within an hour of just normal walking around my block and not banging or bumping in any way it was gone (Lost). I contacted their customer service via email (the only way) multiple times with no response as the item may have been warped and could be the why it came of so easily. I believe I had a faulty product that if they would have at least answered or replaced I am sure I would have rated this higher,

    Perfect addition to my runs

    A great looking and working watch. Had been an owner of the old Nike/ Tom Tom watch and wanted to get up to speed with the new apple watch. It works wonderfully on my runs, calling off mile splits extremely accurately with a face that is easy to read. The nike version has a face that makes starting and ending runs easy while looking sharp in the process. Love the fact that you do not need your phone in order to track runs, just the watch and you are set. This has been a great addition to my runs, 5 stars indeed!

    Great protection for the Apple Watch Series 3

    Originally purchased Belkin - ScreenForce® UltraCurve Screen Protector without the defense edge case, and the screen protector popped off after about 2 days. Returned that to the store and the sales associate suggested this item with the Zagg Invisible Shield glass. It helps to keep the Zagg product from catching an edge and popping off. Works really well to help protect my watch since I can be pretty hard on watches and phones. Had it about a month now and it’s been a Great product so far.

    Been a fitbit user all my life and am fairly active. First time with an Apple Watch and was really scared to crack the screen. Picked this guard up in the hopes that it would save me from any mishaps in the gym. After installing, the face guard is pretty shallow. For certain not enough to blunt the blow from a stray kettlebell. Was hoping for some g-shock like depth but not even close. For everyday non-athletic users, this might be ok so I'll go with 2 stars
