    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    I’ve purchased two of these cases and both times, they’ve popped right off. I’m not an outdoorsy type and I work at an office setting so you would think that minimal use would protect better but with normal use, the case pops off the Apple Watch and next thing you know, it’s gone with no way of knowing there it could have fallen.

    I lost two watches with cracked faces where this product and the screen protector did not work. I do have this product on my current Apple Watch though did not use it in conjunction with the screen protector. Hoping it protects from shock in the event the watch falls or is struck with force. Giving it a third chance.

    deceivingly poor quality and value

    This thing looks real nice, it has a good weight and isn't too bulky. Keeps your watch safe like it says, but the button on the side fell out the first day, so now its near impossible to hit the menu button without very long nails or like a pen or something. totally not worth 30 bucks, more like 8. There are way better ones on amazon.

    I bought this watch case expecting it to protect the outside of my watch but because it pops off if you hit anywhere except directly on the side it doesn’t protect the watch. One day I was working and must have bumped something and all of a sudden it was gone.

    Bought this for my watch since I workout often. Mostly with kettlebells. Case guard did not offer much in the way of protection. Nothing really protecting the face. Shattered my screen protector on the first day. Might be a good watch case if you aren’t very active

    Comes off too easily!

    The Defense Edge Case cannot do its job when it comes off so easily. I recommend getting a product that wraps fully around the watch. This one snaps down from the top, and there is nothing keeping it in place securely. I found another product that works much better.

    Needed to buy a new protector.

    This case did a decent job at protecting for the 2 days before it came off and I lost it. Because the protective case doesn’t secure around the watch band it makes it too easy to fall off. For me, it fell off in only two days and I couldn’t find it afterwards.

    When I bought it I considered it a good protector and it was the only problem was that one day I fell off the apple watch and I did not even fix it until I got home. I do not know if someone else has happened to him but this was my bittersweet experience.

    Doesn't Last

    Out of the box, it's awesome. Great fit and looks. However, for the price, it just doesn't last. The paint coat on the aluminum has started to chip and the silicone is starting to discolor. It hasn't been abused either. Just sweat and UV exposure seems to do it.

    I got this to protect my watch from potential scratches to the shell. It had worked okay other than the fact that it is mailable and over time (less than a month) became loose and now doesn’t fit on exactly as snug as the beginning.

    This is a well intentioned but poorly executed product. It is impossible to use the stem on the Apple Watch Series 2. It is hard to spin the stem at best and at worst sometimes wont turn at all probably because the aluminum frame is rubbing on the stem.

    I bought this item to try to keep the bezel of my watch from coming loose. It didn't cover the watch face, and was useless to keeping the bezel on. I needed something that covered the entire watch, not just the watch edge!

    Cannot recommend this .. at all! It is cheap, and it looks like the original metal ... but there is no raised bumper, and my screen is scratched within first week. Spend the extra money and get a bumper that protects your screen too!

    I liked it when it was new, but after continued use it took the beating that my watch would have took. But I got the cover hooked on something and it fell off and I lost it. Oh well....

    I like the fact that this protects my investment. My only complaint is that the black border prohibits full functionality for posting my Nike+ runs, as the feature is in the upper left-hand corner of the watch screen.

    Minimal protection

    This does nothing to protect the screen. If you are worried about scratches to the body of your watch, then it seems fine. But if you are like me and want to protect the screen then avoid this. It does nothing.
