    Hi everyone I thought I’d write a review for a case pack that I have been using for the Apple Watch from a brand called Orzly.

    It's quite a simple case but for what it offers I think it's great.

    I bought this pack as a means to add extra protection to the watch. Heard of the brand as I ordered their watch and phone stand recently too.

    The case is made from a soft silicon/rubber type material so it feels nice on my wrist. (Not like the sport band that catches the hair!) Doesn't mark or gather fingerprint or smudge marks, I use the sport band strap which I've noticed has horrible oil marks all over it when I've got either greasy or sweaty fingers.

    Another reason why I think it’s great is it adds protection but thin enough to not make my watch look ginormous. The rim of the sports edition watch looks very similar to the iPhone 5s which scratched extremely easily. Being worried about the same happening to the watch, I had to get some sort of protection and the face plate did the trick! I feel more safer with it on there.

    Now the colours I think are pretty cool, they are quite bright and bold, but I think it's nice (maybe not everyones cup of tea, but there's something for everyone I say). My personal preference is the black but I tend to put the others on for casual use. The black and white contrast works really well in my opinion. It's limitless the number of options you have with the colours. I'm looking to get some more bands too so gives me even more room to customise.

    Also a nice feature that it has the cut outs for the little button on the back to remove the straps, makes changing the face plate nice and easy.

    Maybe not worth mentioning, as pretty much all cases offer this, but it’s got a nice cut out for the crown and the magnetic charger on the back so I can use the watch as normal without needing to take it off.

    Overall I think it's a great pack. Not for all though because of the variety of colours, but I know there's many of us out there who like the idea of being able to change the look of the watch without it costing an arm and a leg!

    HI OP,

    thanks for posting this. I originally found out about this pack from the leaflet that came with my Orzly apple watch stand but i'm not sure i would of brought it unless i read your review. The Idea of having a case for the watch wasn't that appealing, maybe it just wasn't marketed well by the manufacturer but after seeing your pics i thought it was worth a punt at the reduced sale price of $9.99 which is much cheaper than Orzly's site

    The product itself arrived within 24 hours in a really nice gift box. I didn't look at the colors when ordering but can now see the 5 colors supplied are to match all the other Apple Watch wrist bands which is quite clever. I have the black strap and the black faceplate is a perfect match, its not any shiny or glossy, light or darker and it compliments it perfectly. Actually its such a close match you could actually mistake this for the Space black version of the watch (from a distance) which is what would of been my first choice if money was not a concern. I never really liked the silver/chrome frame of the watch, i dnt want to offend anyone that does but i think it looks a bit feminine.

    The cases are very simple to install, I have seen reviews in this website of cases snapping of but there is no chance with these as they completely wrap around the edges and back, i believe the pics above show this quite well. They offer some protection, probably more against scratch's around the egde which is a good thing because if Apple announce a next gen version of the watch next year i will need to sell this so the more i look after it the more i will get back on it, but these cases are not going to protect your watch if you drop it or anything like that. I have had the black faceplate on all week as its best suited to formal work wear but im going to mix things up and probably have the red cover on my black strap for a bit of a change. Overall for me, this was a good purchase for my apple watch and i would recommend this to anyone who is getting bored of the same look everyday!!

    I have a couple of these including some knockoffs on ebay. My favorite is actually an orange one I got last night. Others may scoff at it, but I like to change it up every now and then. No I don't color coordinate my clothes, but I feel like it just freshens up the watch and keeps me from getting board with my space grey sport. And they have actually been functional to some me some scrapes.
