Creating a thread just for crystal clear cases for Apple Watch because I'm not very good at putting screen protectors. I like the thin crystal cases and so far I've only found one to my liking but would like to get everybody else suggestions.

I bought this from ebay and it's cheap but I'm liking it so far. It's a snap on case in the front only, it doesn't cover the back which I don't mind. It's very thin and not obvious that the Apple Watch is on a case. The first few days though it creates small bubbles but after a few days I guess after it settled and force touching, the bubbles went away.

My concern with cases that cover the screen, I think moisture will accumulate from sweat during exercise/workouts.

Yes especially after washing my hands so at the end of the day I just take off the case and wipe any moisture before I go to sleep. Good thing it's a snap on case and easy to remove and put it back in.

I had one of these and it does offer good protection. I stopped using it for a few reasons... Apart from a little extra bulk, the back does make your wrist sweat a bit as the plastic backing rubs against your wrist. The charger connects ok still but it isn't as firmly attached to the watch as it would be without the case. If you want to change straps though there are no holes to allow you to push the buttons to release the strap and so you have to peel the plastic back...not a deal breaker but over time the casing will loosen. The lip on the front can be a trap for dust and grit.
On the plus side it does protect well against knocks and bangs

I can replace straps no problem because it has holes to release the straps. Any case/cover will accumulate debris. Just have to clean it every once in a while. The MagSafe charger connects just as good as when without the case. It's TPU.

Yep. Apologies as I stand corrected. The EBay version that I had didn't have holes for the strap release but the orzly that I haven't used yet does. It's actually a better fit than The eBay version as its thinner, looks less conspicuous and fits better

Got home from the beach today and a package was waiting for me. Installed my Armorsuit screen protector and expedited the process with a blow dryer. Voila! Case and screen protection. Done! In case you were wondering, this is with the Armorsuit installed.
