This is a fantastic armor for the Apple Watch. I have a series 3 stainless version. Although this watch is supposed to be much stronger and scratch resistant than the standard aluminum watch, it is still very likely to get banged or dropped during the course of a normal day and I''m sure the watch can get damaged. I opted for this level of protection to make sure this beautiful watch stays that way. Be advised though, this type of protector offers very little protection of the watch''s glass screen. If you get one of the clear soft glove type protectors that cover the entire watch, screen included, once you sweat or get any form of water on the watch...that water will get under the screen protector between the screen and the film. This causes water lines under the protector which looks bad but worse, it causes the touch functions of the watch to become erratic and buggy. I don''t know for sure but, I suspect it will also cause the watch to use extra power as the watch starts jumping between displays due to the water between the film and the screen (I got one of those first and actually had that happen). That can all be fixed by taking the glove off and drying out the protector and watch but, taking them off and putting them on is a real pain. If you do anything more than sit at a desk, your own sweat will condense under the film and force you to take the glove off several times each day. The solution I found was this Spigen Armor coupled with a separate screen only film or ballistic glass that adheres directly to the screen. They work perfectly together to create complete protection for your watch, whether you expose it to water or not. This protector is easy to take off and put on if necessary, although with the quick and easy removal of the front clip on hard protector that can be removed without having to take off the watch bands, I have not had to take the entire protector off since I put it on several weeks ago. I LOVE THIS PROTECTOR and since putting it on, I have worn my watch to the gym, gone for LONG mountain hikes and worked around my property. All those activities have exposed the watch to sweat, water, dust and dirt. I was aware of several HARD hits to the watch that I am certain would have done damage had I not have had this protector on yet, this Armor shows NO DINGS OR SCRATCHES what so ever. For cleaning, I simply rinse the entire watch, with the armor on, under a faucet. I originally intended to take the watch out of the protector when I was going to more formal settings but, I just don''t feel the need to do so. It really is a nice looking case for my watch so, I just leave it on and wear it everywhere. It really is nice to not have to worry about damaging this nice but expensive watch.
Easy to put on and take off of watch
Doesn''t interfere with removal of watch bands if needed
The clip-on front takes just seconds to take off and put back on making cleaning the screen easy
Does not make the watch seem or look much bigger or bulky
Bullet proof protection that even protects the buttons
The button protectors make the function of the buttons a LITTLE harder to access but, to me that is a worthwhile sacrifice for this level of protection.
