    I'm going to be picking up a 6S Plus and an Apple Watch next week. Does anybody actually use a case or bumper on their watch? I plan on the screen protector for it, but was curious about the cases.

    I personally don't like cases on watches but for the sport model might be more essential due to aluminium casing, Ion-X glass and composite backing are less resistant to scratches as compared to the stainless steel model.

    I have the 42mm SS one and never use any case or screen protector. It looks more clean this way as well.

    I ordered a small case and screen protector but don't use them. Case added extra bulk and would get caught on my sleeves. Been running the watch naked and have had no problems. It's a cleaner look and smoother for shirt and coat sleeves. I have the sport, space grey.

    I have a Speck candyshell that I got from the iMore Store but I haven't used it yet. I'm sure I will at some point but don't plan on using it on a daily basis.
    As far as a screen protector is concerned, I have a stainless steal Apple Watch so I don't feel like it's necessary. The sapphire crystal is more likely to shatter than get scratched.
    This is the case I bought: http://store.imore.com/speck-product...medium=content

    I don't wear a case on my watch. I understand it's a tech gadget but I still look at it as an accessory. I've never a put a case on any watch I've had and I've worn one almost daily for more than 20 years.

    No I won't use a case on my watch. It's a watch and I don't want to treat it like a phone.

    I thought about that too. I have some really nice watches and I've never felt the need to put a case in any of them.

    I blame Apple. They've created a monster. If they made a case for AppleTV I'm sure people would buy it.

    The Spigen Tough Armour provides excellent protection if you're in a rough enviroment. Military grade protection and the screen protector is built in. Available in different colors for around $13 bucks from Amazon.

    I haven't picked up a case yet or a screen protector for the watch, but it's tempting. Don't think I will because I don't have a cases for my regular watches.

    I ended up buying the X-Doria Defense Edge in red. I changed my mind about not buying a case after I whacked it against a door frame.

    Has anyone tried the Catalyst case?

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01...mUvbUpU2696873

    I definitely would not be using it full-time but it would be nice to have at times. Specifically during activities like hiking, swimming, going to the beach, etc... Active outdoor activities.

    The sapphire crystal on the stainless watch won't scratch, unless you drag another sapphire or diamond over its surface. It might shatter, however, if you whack it hard enough. I got some stainless cleaner and cloths for rubbing out minor scratches, which I haven't used yet. I do have a few scratches on the metal portions of the case from accidental dings, but haven't been bothered enough by them yet to do anything about it.

    I have a Spigen gold tone thin case which I use sometimes. And I just got a set of 6 "flexible" colored cases that protect front and back. I really use them for the color effect though more than protection...LOL

    I have 2 of these in silver. One on my 42 and one on my 38. The iPad Pro doesn't take the best of pictures.

    I got the same one in white. Mostly for when t-ball season starts. I am clumsy sliding into home plate ⚾️ (truth is I got it to protect my watch from those kids - they're crazy!)
