    Best bumper for the Apple Watch out there

    The product only adds a few millimeters to the dimensions of the phone. However, it is nothing to be concerned about. Since it has a similar color and finish to the space gray watch, it does not look bad at all. I have already bumped the watch with this protector on, and it does its job; it sure beats the 80 dollar and change charge for AppleCare to repair or replace your watch. If anything, I wish i would have gotten this before I burned one of the two accidents covered under AppleCare.

    I tend to bang my Apple Watch on just about everything when walking in tight spaces or around corners and that’s when my wrist catches the corner of a wall. I decided to purchase the protective outer cover and I’m glad I did. The X-Doria Defence case is a solid product. It’s litght weight, durable and doesn’t make the watch feel too big. I try to take care of my Apple Watch and this cover allows me to do just that.

    Love my Apple Watch case. At first I thought it was going to be bulky but then realized it look great. I've been using this case on my watch and have been accidentally striking it against items. I am happy to say that my watch is safe. I feel more secure now than when it didn't have a case. Would highly recommend this case over all other cases. Not only does it look good but it feels good as well. Overall the price is a little steep but it offers the best protection .

    Protects the watch base only.

    It does protect the metal base around the outside fully. But you still need a screen protector on the actual glass to protect from abrasions. The ballistic glass screens do not fully protect the face because they are much smaller than watch crystal which can get scratched even with this on your watch. Get a wet install case that fully covers the glass and not the hard ballistic glass type.

    Does exactly what it says it should, it protects my watch from all the bumps and bangs I find myself getting into. I do have one negative, but this is just my personal opinion. It does make the watch look rather bulky when you have it on your Apple Watch. I didn't want to give it 4 stars simply because I didn't like the appearance, but overall it has shielded my watch from any damage. It's worth it, but just know it can make your watch seem a bit bulky....

    Keeps from damaging your screen

    This case is essential if you want to protect your screen. It’s normal to knock your watch against things on day to day routines. However it does its job in maintaining your beauty. As a matter of fact it’s so durable that I’ve yet to see scratches on this actual bumper. The others out there are too soft and flimsy. This case is hard and really protects against all elements. Worth the price !

    Not really black

    I had one in a silver color and loved it as it protected the sides of my watch good and more durable than another brand I had that broke again. My only complaint is the black is not a true black but has a greenish hue to it. Would be great in a true black or gloss black. Great case for protecting the watch casing. Have it paired with a Zagg glass screen protector.

    Great Protection

    This little case cover for the Apple Watch 2 is great for those of us who tend to hit the watch into door frames and such. It is light and hits very snuggly in place. My only issue with this cover is that it is too snug around the wheel and makes it difficult to turn. It still works, but it doesn't turn as easily as without the cover. Overall, great little cover that provides good coverage and protection. The only negative is ....too expensive!

    Great for low level protection

    I use this edge case daily. It is very easy to remove and install for cleaning. This edge case did not cause my screen protector to lift on edges. The description for this case states that it has an "anodized aluminum exterior" but this is only a color/finish. The case resembles a very flexible plastic exterior with a rubber type interior lining that fits against your watch. The case sits below the level of your watch face when installed.

    Bulky Watch

    I wanted to buy something that would protect my watch because I felt it was getting hit a lot. I ended up picking this protector and I was extremely disappointed. It’s bulky. It made my watch bigger than it was (I have a 42mm) and my face was still not protected. I wanted to take it back but I ended up keeping it and just buying another brand case.

    This is a great case as long as it's not deformed, which for some weird reason it happens to a lot of X-Dorias. When deformed it won't fit properly and will allow dust and particles to fall in between the case and the watch scratching the watch. Double check integrity as soon as it's pulled out of packaging and if it's not a perfectly square don't even bother with it. If it is perfectly squared then it's an amamzing, protective product.

    Screen sticks out past the bumper.

    The screen is exposed and can crack your watch very easily by hitting your watch on a door frame, desk, etc. The case looks great but how is it called the DEFENSE case if the watch screen is so exposed to collisions. I have a separate screen protector on and still do not trust this case from possible collisions.

    had got one of these form my wife's 38mm iwatch and it worked fine. Got a 42mm version for myself. The second day it poped off the watch twice. snagged it on something on the left side of the iwatch an it just popped right off. Been more careful and haven't done it since. wished the edges were a bit taller to protect the edge of the glass on the iwatch.

    My boyfriend purchased this for his work. He works inside of engine bays and was worried about scratching his watch, he has said nothing but positive things about this product. He wore it once with out it and ended up scratching his screen. He learned his lesson and won’t remove this protector. Great product! Highly recommend.

    Good way to protect your Apple Watch

    This product works mostly as designed. My first complaint is that it is difficult to combine this with a faceshield for the glass. So essentially, you would have to choose between this case or a faceshield. This case also puts pressure on the round dial on the right hand side of the watch, making it difficult to rotate. Nice slim, tough profile with good intent, but poor follow-through and execution at a high price tag.

    This case looks nice, it gives the apple watch a bulkier look but it a sleek and pretty high quality case. It has an over the top type of fit that just kind of clips on and isn't very secure, and this more or less became the equivalent of me dropping a 20 dollar bill on the ground. Don't get this, get an full wrap-around case or none at all.

    This is my fourth one of these (All different colors). My first apple watch got caught on something and the face popped off (kept working though!). So I bought one of these to prevent that from happening again. They have worked great at protecting my watch whileadding some style and an occasional pop of color too. They are very easy to pop on and off to change colors and stay on tight. A cheap protection plan!!

    i have bought several different cases about 4 different cases in total but this is been the best one i have bought. it does cost more then the others but protects the casing of my watch. I have the sapphire glass witch does not scratch in normal usage and some extreme usage. i have bought this product in the past and it holds up. i bought this new one for my new watch do to past experience.

    I’ve had this edge case for over a month and it hasn’t disappointed. It provides protection, but it isn’t too bulky or uncomfortable. It was more expensive than other edge cases, but the quality is noticeably better. My only negative comment is that it says “DEFENSE” on the top and bottom, which I think takes away from it’s otherwise great design.

    Best Case for Apple Watch

    I am a very active person but also wear this in my professional life. Without this case I am sure I would have multiple scratches, cracks, etc. on this from bumping it on my desk or brushing it into a door. I also workout with this on, swim, take showers, and play basketball, golf, etc. I have yet to even have a slight scratch on my watch while using this case. Would highly recommend!
