    I received my watch protective case today. It's OK, fits reasonably well with some movement. It doesn't look too bad, I think, but it's nothing like as nice as the watch naked. I sometimes work in a watch-dangerous environment, so I figured a case might be a sensible idea.

    Not bad, I was expecting a little bit of a "snugger" look. Already have the LUVVITT clear TPU ones soon to shop, was going to get the Spigen colored ones - gold or silver, not as thick as the Rugged one you have, so I'm sure they'll be alright as well.

    Wow looks pretty nice. I purchased the tough armor but it hasn't shipped from amazon yet. :( Really need it, won't wear my watch out in public without a case.

    Nice! Thanks for the photos. Perhaps the white case would have looked better with the band. It looks way too contrasting like that.

    I ordered one of each of the 5 Spigen cases directly from Spigen to try them all out. The Crystal and Rugged have shipped so far but none are here yet.

    Not bad at all, but I'm glad I went with the Spigen Thin Fit ones, though. The rugged ones are a little too thick for my liking.

    Whoa...seems like you have a pager strap onto your wrist.

    This makes the watch look huge. LoL...

    How easy is it to get on and off, and how long does it take you? Do you have to remove the bands to get it on and off?

    I want a protective case like this that I can slip on temporarily when doing something that might damage it such as mountain biking.

    Thank you for the pics . I ordered the same protective cover and was curious to see how it would look.

    ----------

    How did the free screen protectors work with your watch? I ordered mine from amazon.

    Yeah, it's pretty easy and quick. A few seconds.

    ----------

    I've not put one on yet. Trying to decide if I'll put one on now, or wait for the inevitable glass one.

    ----------

    I've got small wrists. It's not that big.

    I've just ordered one for my 42mm Space Grey, so thanks for posting.

    Hahahaha, whoops! I've grown used to it since yesterday, and quite like it now. Makes like a sport watch.

    What is your wrist size? Or, do you have a photo before adding the case?

    Yea, the watch seems big on you already, thus the case looking large. I assume that's the 42mm on a small wrist. Thanks.

    Looks like it will protect it from bumps and scrapes but it looks hideous.

    Thanks. Now the tough armor does not look to bulky. Compared to the pics.

    The thin fit is a hard case and I am wondering if the plastic clamps might scratch the watch

    Thanks for the pics. I actually just ordered one of these earlier today. Been using my watch at the gym all last week to lift and to play basketball and am definitely a little uneasy about banging on something and cracking the screen.

    This case will stay in my gym bag and only be used for gym/sports,etc.

    Otherwise, IMHO i think it looks kind of ridiculous. Better be safe than sorry though ;)

    That basically makes the 42mm look like a 52mm watch, at least 5mm extra on each side.

    Here is their Liquid Crystal - Crystal Clear Case

    Here is maybe an option for some... This the 42mm version on a SS BSB

    Just received from Amazon yesterday. Just enough to protect from the everyday. Figured I would have it on while working around the house and everyday wear and then when going out some place nice take it off.

    After a half day use yesterday it worked pretty well. It's not crystal clear up close but it's not really an issue. Also no issue with it on and using the charging cable.

    Thats not bad actually. I have one on order but the speckled look i am not sure about. The Spiglen site does say semi-transparent. I have ordered another one from Orzly which claims to be 100% transparent

    Do you have any pics of the thin fit on your watch ?

    Has there been anyone with pics of the thin fit in action ?
