    I don't think mine looks cheap. I think it looks better than without it.

    I think it looks fugly to be blunt. I've never seen the point in either a bumper or case for the AW. It increases the footprint, isn't needed, and all for a piece of tech which will be obsolete in a few years.

    In conjunction to your post, it just takes away from the overall look of the Apple Watch. I know for me, I own the stainless model and I can't imagine putting some plastic bumper around the Apple Watch that would conceal the beauty of the 316L Stainless. That's one of the reasons I purchased the stainless was to have a smart Watch actually resemble a Watch with the metal casing. To each their own on bumper.

    I am not a fan of that bumper either and to me, it does look cheap. It takes the stainless or aluminum design and dresses it down with high impact plastic.

    I realize these things are subjective and consider my statement simply my own opinion and I can appreciate how others might like the look

    I have a Catalyst case I use when I will need the added protection. I also have a nice leather band I use with x-doria edge bumpers for work and casual wear. The x-doria edges are relatively inexpensive and look decent, so I have a couple of different colors.[​IMG]

    Bumpers are meant for protection, less the beauty, I hv cracked several watches in the past after hitting hard objects such as concrete etc. they weren't aw. If you work around rough places, such being a mechanic, handyman etc, the chance that you bang your watch is increased. Yes it looks better without the bumper, but it protects your aw as well.

    I would agree with this. If you were in an environment where you have a lot of physical contact, then I certainly would purchase one of these and I would want to protect my investment. Or even if you're just accident prone, then I also would suggest One. I would rather much have a watch that's functional and not damaged because of preventable accidents.

    I would agree as well. I don’t like the look of them any more than I like those really heavy Otterbox or Lifeproof cases, but if I worked in an environment that warranted using either, I would surely do so, at least while at work.

    Yup that is why I put AW case when I got an original AW last year then I was very lucky when my AW got scratched 30 minutes later but case took care of it.

    I have the tough armor case and it protects my watch like it should. At times i'm in a big warehouse with a lot of moving parts when i do have the case i can do my job no problem. If i didn't put it on that day i do get a little nervous about busting my screen. But again some people will say its ugly / bulky takes away from the watch. Which is all subjective. But guess what?! its PROTECTING the watch like it was designed to do.

    Lastly i don't think it makes my watch look cheap or stupid. But best part of all i don't give a F**k about what they think. Its MY watch!

    Yes eddie better safe than sorry, after all you work in a WH, lots of dangerous elements in there. You can take the armor off when you go on a date.
