    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 edge case looks nice on the watch. It give it a little more beef to the look and defnifetly protects the edges. I would have given it 5 stars if it had a lip to it that would rise above the face of the watch. it would have to be that much of an increased edge just to protect rubbing or hitting the face of the watch on a wall or something. Overall it works as an edge protector and looks good.

    Bought this for a series 3 apple watch. Snaps in place and fits well, pretty easy to install. My only issues: its a bit bulky (not crazy but def adds to the profile of the watch, and the soft parts have changed color over time and no longer look good.

    While relatively sturdy this product really didn't meet my expectations. It is very easy to install, but I have also had it pop off during relatively normal activities. Also, the watch actually sticks up above the guard so the watch face is still exposed. This product isn't bad but I am definitely on the lookout for a more sturdy and secure replacement

    This case definitely keeps the watch safe from scratches and marks on the side of the watch. It leaves a dirt mark where the case opens up to go around the crown of the watch, but most cases do. Only real downfall to this case is the color fade and dirty look it gets on the rubber spot on top and bottom that says "Defense"

    Good watch side protection

    The device protects the edge of my iWatch, but has come off a couple times when rubbing against an object which was a surprise and I thought I lost it. Hence, I wish it was somehow more secure. It does not offer protection for the face of the watch, so I am going to look for something which does cover both areas of concern.

    i bought the doris case for my apple watch and used it for a week. one night after work i came home an realized the case popped off my watch somewhere at work or on the walk to work. i have a very active job and very physical so if you're that kind of employee expect this case to get lost very easily.

    It’s an edge protector that’s it. Wish it raised up more around the edge and protected the screen more. Also seems to have a sharp edge on it and can scratch people or so my wife says. Seems to pop off easy after a while and depending on how tight your band is.

    Reason I rated the case a three is the green plastic makes it look cheap. Overall the quality is good. The picture makes it look better than what it is. It also rubs very close to the crown and makes it tough to rotate the crown. The black is a lot better and matches the space grey Watch very closely.

    The case itself on the watch looks great. I use it with the black milanese for apple… great combo. Ive cracked my watch face twice and only have used the case for about 2 weeks but already feel safer. The lock button cover feels like an apple lock button, hopefully it doesnt loose its stiffness

    My husband bought this case to protect his Apple Watch 3, and while it was great, he ended up losing the case when he was moving stuff around our house. We have yet to find the case even though it’s been a week of searching. Only had it less than a month.

    This case is nice it has tight fit and has a nice polished metal look like the actual watch itself. However, within a week the moisture from washing my hands regularly was enough to have the button under the wheel fall off so now that's a pain to press. Not worth the price in my opinion.

    It’s kind of like the oxygen masks on the plane. You never want to find out if they work or not. I know that it’s there, because I see the air bubble that the Best Buy employee couldn’t get out when he installed it, but I can’t say how well it protects the watch.

    Like the idea of this case, however I placed my Watch including this case in my pocket for a short period of time during the course of walking the case came off and fell out of my pocket. I recently purchase and new case from amazon that cannot slip off.

    This case is stylish and makes the watch look a bit bigger. Very easy to install and maintain. Only downfall is the back edges are a bit sharp.
