    Just got this case from Amazon today and installed quickly. It's fairly unobtrusive, doesn't spoil the watch design and I certainly appreciate having the protection.

    I was thinking of that same case when mine arrives next month.

    How is the ability to use the crown & button with the case on? Any difficulties?

    I am getting a Space Gray....is that the one you have pictured?

    Just curious if you have a screen protector on your watch? I got a clear TPU case for my Apple Watch and it quickly peeled up the corners of my ArmorSuit protector.

    I have no difficulties with the crown movement or side button. Yes, I have the Sport in Space Grey.

    I'm not using a screen protector because I think there is enough of a lip around the edges of the cover to protect the screen. At least that's my theory :)

    I preordered the 38mm and 42mm clear TPU cases when they first announced it, and after I received it a few days after my WATCHes came in, I noticed that the hole for the Digital Crown was either too small or shifting around when the case shifts around the watch, causing the crown to not spin as freely.

    I notified LUVVITT and they simply refunded my order without having to send it back.

    Surprisingly, they sent me another two cases a couple of weeks later without me asking. Not sure if they're an updated version as I haven't gotten around to test yet. I now have 4 cases, basically for free, so I just have to commend them for caring about their product and their customers.

    .



    I would be interested to hear if the two replacement cases are a better fit.
    Thanks.

    This is the only case I'm considering so far I just was wondering if you might chime in on how it's holding up. My main concern is putting something on that's counter productive and traps dirt/etc that may scratch the watch case over time. Thanks!

    Update

    You are right on target, concern wise. Four days into having it on my watch I have noticed that the case collects quite a bit of dust and dirt underneath. I have since taken it off and returning it to Amazon for a refund. Hopefully something better like a protective film will come along.

    Thanks for the honest feedback I think I'm going to just stick with my Zagg HD screen protector and just be a little more mindful of the casing while still enjoying the watch.

    I absolutely hate when something I get to protect a device is the thing that ends up damaging it.

    Luvvitt also makes a flexible/soft clear case called Clarity that you can find on Amazon. I saw this thread and was also concerned about particles trapping underneath that might scratch so I ordered the soft case.

    I just got it yesterday but so far I really like it and it adds very little bulk and button presses are no problem.
