Rugged Protection Alternate
The Spigen Rugged Armor Pro combines a watch case and band into one unit, making it a convenient accessory for excursions and other adventures. It has a matte finish with carbon fiber accents for a sporty yet rugged look, and its raised bezels will ensure your smartwatch’s screen has protection from falls and the resulting collision.
i-Blason Cosmo Luxe
Stylish & Protective
The i-Blason Cosmo Luxe is another case-plus-band option that offers a more stylish look than the other options on this list. It uses a soft silicone trap and a TPU-based casing to ensure the wearable is not only snug on your wrist but safe from bumps. The accessory is also cross-compatible with older versions of Apple Watch.
Spigen Rugged Armor

Which Apple Watch Series 7 case should you buy?
So, if you’ve gotten through the list and are still undecided on which case to buy for Apple Watch, here are some of our thoughts.
If rugged protection for your adventures is what you’re looking for, the SUPCASE Unicorn Beetle Pro is a great option to consider because of its prominent front bezel, which will ensure your screen is the last thing that comes in contact with a surface. Now, if you’re not a fan of its design, the Spigen Rugged Armor Pro is an equivalent alternative — choose the Spigen Rugged Armor, in case you want to bring your own band.
Now, if you’re looking for protection that doesn’t add too much bulk, Caseology’s Nero TPU Sleeve is our top pick as it ensures that a bump or fall on a surface will do little damage. Yes, there’s reduced protection for your screen, but that is the trade-off if you want to maintain a low-profile look.
