    Fits Apple Watch Series 3

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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 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.

    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.

    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 !

    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.

    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.

    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’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.

    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.

    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!
