thought the same thing until i destroyed myself yesterday at the end of a long hill when my longboard hit some construction junk I didn't see. anyways, I have decided to get one for times i want to use the sport for the actual sport activities I bought it for. I am going to look for it, because I forgot the name, but there is a nice one on one of these top case threads that goes on and off as easy as the bands it appears. If I can't get it on and of in just a few seconds I would only use it the first time or two I go skate then I will start forgetting to do it.
First of all, people do wrap their cars in protective covers when they are parked, so even in your analogy that is not unheard of. In any case, how do you presume license to declare what look someone likes or doesn't? For the gym or outdoors, the spigen tough armor case matched to sport band looks great in my opinion. It has a rugged hardcore look in a setting where a delicate finish would be out of place. For a nice dinner or wedding, I would go no case and my milanese. Fashion is about options and preferences. If you don't like how the cases look, don't get one, but don't presume to call the rest of us ridiculous.
What's the link for that one??Anyone purchasing a protective case? And which one. I like this one
Just type in in apple watch cases in google and you will get a plethora of links or head over to SpigenWhat's the link for that one??
I go back and forth on whether or not I'll get one. For the record, I don't giving a flying football what someone thinks of whether or not I buy one. I bought it for me, with my money, and I'll protect it (or not) any way I see fit.
Half of me wants to get one as a precautionary measure, the other half of me is listening to a friend of mine. He pointed out that you never see a guy with a 10,000 dollar rolex wrapping it in a bumper.
Logical, but just the same part of me is going "I wonder....?" I could see this as an absolute if I were in an environment or a contact sport and there's a huge possibility of breakage but I'm not. I work for UPS and my sporting is working out with weights, cycling, and martial arts sparring (where I wouldn't be wearing it anyway...).
So, I can't decide yet...
Bottom line: to each their own.Why you might want an Apple Watch screen protector, case, or sticker. Heres where the accessorizing becomes contentious. Some people just hate these things, no matter what Apple device were talking about. The logic is simple: Jony Ive and team make beautiful things, and protectors cover them up. But after finding that nearly 80% of iPhone users use cases, Apple started selling them (and many of its own cases have been pretty mediocre). It also shipped rubbery iPad cases on day one, and has been selling them for years. I personally cant imagine putting a case on my own personal watch now, but thats just me. People have used Swatch and Casio protectors for decades.
If youre buying a steel Apple Watch or gold Apple Watch Edition, you probably wouldnt even consider wrapping it in something else, unless that something else is another, more precious material. Both of these models have sapphire screens that should be very resilient, and hopefully Apples Mordor-forged metals will stand up well to the sorts of things that just happen to watches accidental bumps against door frames, brushes against desks, and so on. The difference in materials is basically Apple saying that if you spend $549 or more for your Watch, its pretty much good to go. (Except in the pool or ocean. You might want a waterproof case for that.)
But most of Apples orders were probably for the less expensive Sport versions of the Watch. Their faces are protected with glass rather than sapphire, and their bodies are made from aluminum, like the iPods, iPhones, and iPads people have been scratching and denting for years. Buyers of these Apple Watches have more reason to cover up their Watches, either for protective or cosmetic reasons. I personally think that faux carbon fiber stickers (worse yet, gold carbon fiber stickers) are ridiculous, and wouldnt wrap them around an Apple Watch. However, adults and kids with varied fashion sensibilities will wear $349 Apple Watches. Some may want to keep their Watches scratch-free for resale when the second-generation model comes out. The stickers, screen protectors, and cases spotlighted by my colleague Jordan Kahn are a cheap way to do this.
More like your post is one of the most ridiculous ones I've read on any forum. What gives you the right to mock other people. You don't want to put a case on your watch that's your choice. I suggest you don't belittle those who do. It's their choice if they want to put cases or screen protectors on their watches.
i ordered the clear one..we'll see how it fits with the space gray.Yes. I just ordered two thin fits from Spigen.
Can you post some pics when you get it and fit it to your watch and let us know what you thinkI'm getting the Spigen liquid crystal case for my watch. Looks like you won't even know it's there. I even got one for my iPhone 6, and you can't really see it on there.
Pretty lame comparison.
Yah! even checked the SKU against the one on the site,Has it got a speckled texture? The pictures make it look like it does. Hardly anything like the pictures Spigen use on their site:
