    I am wanting to put a case on my Apple watch S2. Really liking the Spigen Tough Armor.
    Spigen Tough Armor Apple Watch Case with Extreme Heavy Duty Protection and Built In Screen Protector for Apple Watch Series 2 42mm (2016) - Gunmetal https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N74P26H...mUvbUpU2877631
    Any thoughts, and other suggestions? Also looking for a good nylon band.

    I use one of the Tough Armour cases on my Watch when I am playing paintball. But other than that I never use it. The watch is tougher than people give it credit for. And really I only use it then, because I am not sure if the Watch can take a direct hit from a paintball. I also wear the watch facing in so the band is on the outside of my wrist.

    As for the nylon band, I am a fan of the authentic Apple bands. I know a lot of people like the third party ones, but they are not for me.

    Being a truck driver, and having to climb in and out of trailers, the cab, dodging forklifts, and such, I prefer the extra protection. That's what appeals to me about this one. Always better to play it safe.

    True. If your Watch's at risk of suffering hard knox, a case is a good idea. I had that case on my AWSS for awhile. I'm not prone to banging my Watch around, so I ended up with the case trapping very fine particles of some nature and scuffing the finish of the Watch. I dumped the case.

    I'd sooner take my chances case-less. I think the non-Stainless cases would fare well with a case.

    Just picked up the Rugged Armor to have whenever I felt I needed and I actually like it way more than I thought I would. I have not had good luck with watch screen protectors so I doubt I will use one but the case is very nice.

    Very old thread but I’ve wanted to get a case like this. Many say their watches get scratched up from the case being on there. Anyone had issues?

    I just bought one of these in black:

    Case and Nike type band.

    I did use the Rugged Armor case for a while but what I didn't like was the case covering the back and sweat and grime getting in between the case and the watch. Caused some issues with the back of the watch.

    I have purchased two of these watch cases by Julk on Amazon.

    They fit nicely over my watch, and it's not horribly obvious that I have a case on my watch. I like them because they are clear, and very affordable at $8.99 each. The reason I have two, is because I'm a little OCD. I take one off, and wash it thoroughly and let air dry. I put the other one on so that my Watch is protected. I'm kind of a clutz, and I'm certain something would happen to my watch if it wasn't protected.

    Thanks for the endorsement. I have a screen protector on mine, but they do tend to peel over time, so I'm thinking about one of these. I may have to order and try it to see it in real life to see how it looks, though.

    That's exactly why I went this route. I love the looks of the watch, and didn't want to cover it up with a case... then I found these. Plus, it's so affordable, I figured it was worth a shot! I'm very happy with them, and if you do try one, let me know what you think!
