It's EXACTLY how you'd expect it to be and does the job. Saves the metal from scratching!
*INSTALL NOTE: No instructions included. Simply slip the band through the appropriate holes first (don't slip it all the way through), then slip the rest of the case from the SIDES and then should fit right in.
We've already seen the reports of the Apple Watch's glass being (almost) scratch proof. But the same can't be said about the metallic edges around the watch. Enter the Spigen Apple Watch "bumper" case for my 42mm iWatch Sport.
Lets get this out of the way: honestly, it's silly to call this a "case", its more like a "bumper" because uhh, it prevents damage from bumps! And trust me, I BUMP my watches a lot. Why? Because I'm a clumsy oaf and tend to cut corners around corridors and walls, its wierd. So I take a left turn around a wall or corner then "bang" I hit my watch going around the bend. I've had the bumper on for about a couple hours now and sure enough..."bang" I go around the corner. I look down and wipe off the white scuff the wall left on the bumper and carry on, all for $15! I am at ease!
So lets go over some common questions I'm hearing that little voice in your head asking while you read this and debate to push the "Buy Now" button.
Does it add bulk to the watch? ---> Now you must be thinking, "Well its gonna make it bulkier." Well of course it is! But unless your dainty wrist has been wearing nothing but a yellow Livestrong band for years, the watch with the bumper on is NOTHING compared to a good ol men's watch or, in my case, a big 'un G-Shock. So I took the liberty of taking pictures of the bumper on and the G-shock side-by-side for reference. *You're welcome* You want bulky? The Apple Watch with the bumper is still less heavy, less wide, and less thick than my G-shock. I barely even notice the difference right now.
Did you use the screen protectors? --> Noooope! They're plastic crap and I threw them away. It reminds me of those Blackberry plastic screen protectors back in the 2000's. Do your research about the Apple Watch glass, they're friggen durable.
Does it interfere with the watch face controls? (i.e. sliding finger down for notifications, etc.) --> This was supposed to be the deal-breaker for me and the answer is that it DOES NOT interfere with the face controls! Again, it doesn't hinder any way possible, I can slide up, down, left, and right with my bloated sausage fingers with ease. As for the wheel and home button, you can still access them as well quite easily.
Why did you replace your G-shock with an Apple Watch? --> Cause I'm a geek and need to see texts messages instantly and also to be reminded to stand my big butt up to walk around instead of my wife having to do it. My G-shock couldn't do that before. Oh well.
Was it easy to install the bumper? --> Kind of. There were no instructions in the box that I could find. But I made like a monkey and experimented by sliding in the bands first. They didn't slip all the way through and then I fiddled with the sides next and then it slipped right on. I wouldn't force it. The rubber is flexible enough to get the job done.
Why are you using a Micky Mouse watch face in one of your pictures? --> Thats classified.
SO, here comes the typical Amazon Pro's and Con's Summary:
- Its a bumper for the Apple Watch.
- Its made out of rubber that will protect the metal sides that aren't as "unscratchable" as the glass
- Its black
- Says "Rugged Armor" on the top of the face.
- Does NOT interfere with controls at all.
- Not as bulky as expected.
- Screen protectors are a throw-away. Others might sleep better if they apply it.
- It doesn't hide the fact I bought a blue-band Apple Watch Sport. *I'm going to Apple Store to replace it, sheesh.
- No instructions - Took some fiddling to install

Great Friggin Case for the $$$ anything better will cost at least 35% what your actual watch cost.
I have had it for over a month. When I bought it, I got a skin to put on under the case to protect the finish of my watch.
I just recently pulled off this case to clean and inspect (photos below) and it had not caused any damage(but did protect it from a number of bumps and drops).
The case isn't super well designed, but it works, it goes on and off fairly easy with moderate effort (does not shift or move or warp much during wear).
It does its job. It doesnt have to be aircraft grade aluminum with bezel screws and a custom band... it works fine, especially for the price.
YOU HAVE TO CLEAN THIS CASE PERIODICALLY. You are an absolute idiot if you think you can let sand, dirt, metal shavings, and water get on your $300 watch without damaging it long term.
Use your brain. Its not an airtight seal over your watch. Clean it. Monthly. Look at the price. Now look at your watch. Back to price . Now back to me. Does that math add up to you?

A must have!
By Brian bunch
Great fit and allows me to wear the watch while working with my hands, so I'm not worried about scratching it. Give the watch a more rugged/sportier look too. A must have!
