I have done a quick video of the Spigen Thin Fit v the Orzly Invisicase.

I am trying to show how both are installed on the watch, how it looks and how the a Spigen is prone to popping off the watch.

Someone has asked on another thread, why I didn't do a flick test on the Orzly. My answer is, I don't really make videos, so I didn't think of it. I have tried it since and it will flick off ( not as easily as the Spigen ) but only from the left side. The digital crown stops it coming off the right side, and it's so thin it won't flick off at the top or bottom.

I think this is because the Spigen is much thicker. Having said that I like the Spigen Thin Fit and I have worn it playing football and it did stay on. I can though see the potential for it popping off.

Being that the orzly fits kinda tight is there any problems with it scratching the sides?

Have just ordered an Orzly - but was wondering the same about it maybe scratching - especially if it gets dirt etc between the Orzly and the watch screen ! Will see what it's like when it arrives re tightness of fit

I would be amazed if it scratched either SS or SG. Have put it on my SG dozens of times and no scratches at all.

Once you have one you will realise it can't really cause scratches.

I Think I'm gonna give the armorsuit a chance first with the thin fit case. If I end up loosing the case then i'll move over to the orzly. Anyone know if the orzly will fit with the armorsuit full body? I was just gonna put on the screen protector and the backpiece that goes around the sensors. Not gonna install the sides just front and back.

Is there more than one Spigen thin case? The one I have goes over the straps and couldn't pop off if you yanked it.

I much prefer the Orzly one based on your video. The spigen one does come off way too easily! I've got their stand which I will be posting a review on shortly.

It sounds like the Orzly one is making a scratch sound but I doubt it will do any sort of damage to the watch. Looks like it's made from a plastic so would be too soft to create any sort of damage.

The spigen one comes off too easily, would worry that I'd end up losing it.

Thanks for posting!

The video is very helpful, thanks, regarding installation and looks. :)

To show the relative tendency for each case to "pop off", it would definitely be better to treat each case in exactly the same way. Perhaps you could shoot a sequel? :cool:

And because someone really should ask - are you connected in any way with Orzly?

Unfortunately, after having an Orzly type case on my watch for half a day, I've realized I really don't like this case. IMO, this case is too shiny, and makes the watch look bad. I've decided to only use it while I'm on Mass Transit or working out, otherwise I'm keeping my watch naked. If someone could come up with a THIN case that mixes the best of both Spigen and Orzly, meaning a touch through screen on the case like Orzly, with the looks of the Spigen, I'd be all over it. Like the Spigen and may just put a screen protector on underneath it.

I am not connected to Orzly in any way at all. I paid for the case and wanted to share my experience and opinion.

That's genuinely great to know, thank you - please don't be offended.

I don't understand how people could equate going caseless with their Rolex to doing the same with an Apple Watch. While I wouldn't want to always wear a case on my watch, I'd love something for when I'm hiking or working in the yard or doing something with my hands. I had never noticed how careless I am with my wrists until I got this watch a month ago and realized how often I drop things behind furniture and bang my wrists on walls.

I would definitely keep an eye on this company http://www.caudabe.com to see when they produce a 0.35mm watch cover. I have the veil for my iPhone 6 and love it. While it doesn't provide much drop protection, while I'm home I can use it as scratch protection or if I'm going out somewhere nice I can use it instead of my electric blue Apple silicone case. This thing is as thick as a fingernail.

How off topic was this? That's really subjective.

thanks for this post OP. I was deciding between the exact two cases you have shown in this video. I have opted for Orzly as it covers more of the watch yet still showing of the beautiful design of the watch

that spigen logo is a real put of, not to mention its much more expensive
