    Looks great, scratches easily

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    After reviewing several smart watches I decided on the Apple. I have other Apple products so I was familiar with the operating system. The watch gives me the freedom to have my phone near by but use the watch to answer calls. The changable watch faces is fun to setup most of the appps are free. The ability to change watch bands was another deciding factor. I would definitely recommend this watch.

    Easy to put on the watch. Durable for hits. It obviously adds to the size, making it bulky, but I wear it daily, so I don't have to be gently on the watch. It will cheapen the look of the sophistication of the watch, so I take it off when I am in more formal environments. However, this was a great purchase. It does the job and I knew it's shortcomings before I bought it.

    Simple solution for adding protection to your Apple Watch!!! Beware it does add a little bulk to your wrist and makes it harder to access the Watch crown. I also noticed my arm hair gets pinched and pulled out from the case being on. But overall very happy with the product! Would recommend while you're at work and then just slipping it off when you're not working.

    The case protects the edges of the watch sufficiently. The only complaint I have is, that it doesn't take a lot of pressure to pop the case off. I have found out if you have a screen protector in addition to this edge protector it stays on better. So, that is what I did. I put both on my watch and it works just fine. I would recommend.

    It’s a great watch protection,easy quick snap on install,don’t have to remove straps to install,it does protect the edges and buttons. It didn’t come off when graze my watch against to any object. Kind of pricey to me $30,but I had to have it.

    I needed extra protection for my Apple Watch. This fits the protection needed. I didn't care for the plastic ones I've seen. I bump into it many times a day during work and both this guard and watch are in great shape. It blends into the style of my watch reasonably well.. So far so good.

    My boyfriend used this because he didn’t want to ruin his watch at work. A couple days after getting it he crack the screen already. Good thing he had the screen protector. He removed the protector and ended up buying a full case that wraps around the watch for more protection. Did it’s job though for what he got it for.

    The watch is awesome!! So precise and does exactly what it should. I especially love that I don’t have to look at my phone to read or reply to a text message. Simply speak into the watch. The only downfall is the that the watch scratches from wear. If I had to do it all over again I would get the stainless steel one.

    This case has protected my Apple Watch 2 quite a few times already these past two months. It doesn't let sand or dirt penetrate between the case and the watch so no fear of scratches like with other cases I've read about. Only thing keeping it from 5 stars is the fact that the case can impede the free spin of the digital crown a bit.

    I got this wanting to protect my investment and stopped wearing it a few months ago. I am just not rough on my watch and it showed no wear. If you are prone to damage your watch, it is a great investment. I am just careful enough already.

    The rubber lined metal seems to do a good job protecting the edge of my series 2, I would have given a perfect score if it would protect the curved side of screen. Can't find anything to protect this area of the series 2 without going with the case where you can't use apple bands. Holes do line up nicely though.
