    I was really pleased with the Spigen Rugged Armor in black. It's a matte finish and feels & looks really nice, especially with the black band. When my Spigen Slim Armor in white arrived, I figured I'd sell it. After trying it on, I kinda like it. It'll probably go nice with my white band whenever it arrives. I use the white color complications on the "modular" watch face, which make for a really cool white text on black band/case & white text on black screen style.

    Some things to note:

    It's a glossy/smooth finish, compared to the matte finish of the Rugged Armor.

    The friends/Applepay button is much easier to push when compared to the Rugged Armor.

    Hard to believe, but the crown is also easier to operate in this case compared to the Rugged Armor. The part of the case that covers the crown actually guides your finger to stay perfectly in place in a "channel" when scrolling in either direction. It's hard to explain, but I really thought the crown was going to really be hindered.

    However, the crown is definitely a bit more difficult to press, when compared to nothing covering it, obviously.

    Note that Spigen doesn't make a Slim Armor in black.

    Also note that I have an armorsuit installed.

    Did anybody also get this white case, but also has a white band? I'm curious how it looks.

    Hold crap they've even molded fake screws and strap buttons onto the bottom of it. That's atrocious!

    Out of interest, do you have to remove the band to add or remove this?

    Your watch looks like the original storm troopers.

    How the hell do you press the crown when it's got something blocking it?
