I still have a hard time understanding why so many cases even exist for the apple watch. No cases for non-smartwatches, and it seems the apple watch is the only smartwatch that has them

It makes a watch that already looks too big on a lot of people... Even bigger! I'm not sure how that makes it stylish.

All for the low, low kickstarter backer price of $549/$599 (38mm/42mm) - I'll be interested in seeing if they make their funding goal of $100,000

Two words: butt ugly.

It seems incredibly oversized, and will, no doubt be clunky to wear and use. No thanks.

And they have 3 pledges for a total of $85 already. Good luck with that.

Every single one of those promotional photos looks absolutely ridiculous.

And it stops you from using Apple bands. I hope at least this monstrosity uses standard springbars?

What would I do with all the Apple Watch straps i've bought? Looks like you have to use their strap.

I'll pass on this one!

NOTE: They are now up to $210 in backing

I have to agree with the others - that is ugly and big. Not really my cup of tea.

not to say it would have been perfect, but it would have been better if allowing the sport bands to pass through. if that and somewhere under $100 id have considered it. right now its cheaper to just buy a second, bigger apple watch (i have the 38mm) and not wait 6 months for delivery...

I have to agree with EVERYONE who has posted here - ITS WAY OVERPRICED (and I told them so but they didn't take any notice - unsurprisingly!!) for what it is.

I didn't back it!!!!

See, I like the size of it but the price is crazy high. And the watch band doesn't look good at all. They should have added slits to the top and bottom to allow use of the actual apple watch bands. I'd get one if it was around 80-100.00 but as others have said, the price is just insane.

I love these Apple Accessory kickstarters.
Would be nice to see them put their money where their mouth is and actually use their own money to produce.
Let's see how many you would really sell.
Now it is so obvious that they all inflate the price so that the "backers" think they are getting some return.

I thought the $90 pencil magnet was a stretch but this one takes the cake.

Oh dear God, Pebble called, they want their bezel back.
