Does anyone know of any good cases that will offer maximum protection for the Apple Watch S4 44mm? Especially in a warehouse environment where you will be moving a lot of items and are at a much higher risk to strike your watch accidentally. I also want to be able to easily take off the case when I'm not at work. Would appreciate some suggestions.

I’ve been looking for a case for mine and the cheap ones on amazon are not cutting it. I tried 2 different ones but they pull up the screen protector so they were scrapped. I came across this:

But haven’t pulled the trigger yet
Nice one, I went ahead and purchased it with a couple different color fronts as well. Thanks for posting the link, had not seen that one before.

Catalyst is the best one on the market. Lunatik Epik is another one that will be dropping soon.

Following up on this bumper/case. It is put together quite well, a little harder then I would have thought based on the photos but not completely unbendable. The top snap in guard color options are nice to customize your watch a bit. A testing watch I use has a screen protector (plastic sticker - wet applied) on and this fit well. As always with those types of screen protectors the edges bubble a bit when a top bumper or case are applied. But the bubbles always come out after a little pressing. I don't use this watch for testing of the cases/bumpers themselves, this is for apps I create so I'm not going to throw the watch on the ground to see if it survives. I'll just say this adds a little extra bulk but I personally love a thicker watch so it wouldn't bother me to wear.

Lunatik cases were the best when Series 0 was out. I absolutely loved mine! Sadly they take so long to make additional series that the new watches are out by then. That is if they even get released. I kept hoping series 4 would arrive but their site just has the same update as before.. coming soon. Agh!

Thanks. I was wondering if it would push the screen protector. I prefer a larger watch anyway so I’m not worried about the bulk either. My last watch was a Garmin fenix and loved the size. Are you able to post a picture of the watch in the case?

I finally ordered one last week and it now sitting in IL waiting to be transferred to USPS, so I’ll get it someday soon.

This is on a 40mm series 4.
