    Let me preface this review by saying that I was sent these accessories by Poetic for review and have been told to give a fair and honest review. I was sent their duo-lite case, thier turtle skin case, as well as a leather watch band. I will start with the watch cases.

    The Duo-Lite

    This case is my favoite of the two cases that poetic sent me. It is easy to install and remove if wanted. It just snaps on top of the watch and I instantly feel like this case adds a level of protection that I dont get with some other offerings. The case has a matte finish and really makes my stainless steel watch a more understated than without the case. I feel like it adds enough of a lip up front to protect the watch from an accidents when banging it on a table or a door handle. To be honest I am not a huge fan of watch cases but if I am doing something that I feel like the watch may be in harm of getting broken (playing a sport, going to a festival or something similar) I will definitely be putting this case on. i would rate this product 4.5 out of 5 stars due to the slight fear I have that once installed it may fall off easy due to the easy install process.

    The Turtle Skin

    This case is made of a rather streatchy silicone material. The only way to install this case is to take the watch band off your watch and install the case and then put your band back on. This is a little cumbersome in my oppinion but I cant say I have a better way of doing things than poetic have done here. This combo looks pretty good with my white sport band and I feel like it adds a decent level of protection. I don't like the lines from the molding process but they are hardly noticeable from a distance. I would give this product a 4 out of 5 star review. I dont think this case would go well with any other band than the sports band and the lines from the molding process on the sides of the case are a little ugly.

    Poetic Leather Watch Band

    This is my favoite out of the products poteic has sent me to review. I LOVE this band and it screams quality in my opinion. The lugs sit more flush with my watch casing than even my Apple Classic Buckle and the stiching is pretty awesome. The band was a little stiff upon opening it up from the packaging, but after a few days of wearing it, it has softened up quite nicely and I am happy to say it is more comfortable than before. It is a pretty thick band and it feels quality. This band is for sale on amazon for 25 dollars and I think it is worth every penny. It would look better on a space black watch than on my stainless steel but it doesnt look too bad on mine. This one gets a 5 out of 5 from me.

    Thanks Poetic for this opportunity and everyone that has seen this watch band has asked me about it.

    Did they give you a different turtle skin from me?? Lol they gave me products to review as well, and I hated that case, very loose fitting.
    But I am jealous that you got a watch band though. Lol

    I received the watch band sometime last month after numerous delays.

    Yes, the band is great. However, I received different lugs than the picture showed, and that you received.

    My lugs are like the apple ones, but fit like garbage. Maybe I should shoot them an email asking why others are now receiving the proper lugs as depicted in the product page.....

    I love the snap on case, as I've said in a couple other of my posts here
