do you have a thin fit case that pops off? I have one and refused to use it anymore because I lost one and I was sure that The new it would pop off too. However I've been using it for two weeks now with no problem by Applying clear RTV silicone (a pinhead worth) inside the case, just to the left of the spigen lettering inside . then just pop it on . It will keep it from flying off, yet if you want to take it off , it leaves no trace of any adhesive on the watch and then easily rubs off the case itself. Before I get the usual BS comments about gooping up the watch, then you don't know how RTV silicone works.

Good idea, but then wouldn't it be considered a fault with the case to begin with if it doesn't stay on. I like the concept though. Thanks for the tips on how to keep it on.

Of course it's a fault… but I'm not into the bitching and whining that goes on here incessantly, I'm just offering to fix…

I have the armorsuit full body installed on my 42mm apple watch and with it installed I have no problem with the thin fit popping off because it fits firmly with the full body installed. I recommend it!!

Spigen is releasing a version 2 of their thin watch case.

I know because I bitched up a storm about their first case popping off and then losing it. I have been in constant contact with the company about it.

Don't believe it pops off? Read the Amazon reviews.

I also complained when I lost mine and I am on the waiting list for the second version. The company has been super helpful.

You would if you worked a blue collar job where your hands were constantly banging against equipment.

If you are a laborer and work in an environment where any type of jewelry is subject to abrasion, then a case on a watch is perfectly understandable.

Exactly!!
