For all the features the Apple Watch comes with, it’s surprisingly delicate. Given the fact that it’s designed for runners, athletes and everyday fitness enthusiasts, you’d think it’d come with a little more padding. But alas, Apple Watches are as fragile as, well, iPhones.

Fortunately for you, we’ve rounded up the best Apple Watch cases on Amazon. Much like how you use a case for your phone, these cases are designed to completely encapsulate your watch. They’re made from flexible TPU plastic so they’ll never get in the way, and with tons of different models, colors and protective options to choose from, you’re sure to find the right fit.

Able to keep your watch safe from smudges, scratches, shocks and even sweat, these Apple Watch cases are one accessory you won’t want to forgo.

1. Spigen Rugged Armor Designed for Apple Watch Case for 42mm

BEST OVERALL

Made to match 42mm Apple Watches, the Spigen Rugged Armor case gets top marks for being the most versatile case on the market. The super flexible TPU design fits effortlessly over your watch, and the precise cutouts never interfere with your watch’s functionality. Not only is this case shock-resistant, it also features wireless-free charging. And while it doesn’t come with its own screen protector, it is available in four fun colors. For the price point, it’s easily the best of the bunch.

2. V85 Compatible Apple Watch Case

BEST VALUE

Specifically designed to encase the 35mm Apple Watch, this V85 case is surprisingly durable considering just how thin and lightweight the TPU material is. Able to provide full-on watch protection, it slips effortlessly over your Apple Watch to help keep it safe from bumps, shocks and those occasional falls. At only $6, it’s a steal.

3. Smiling Clear Case for Apple Watch Series

MOST COLORFUL

Designed for the 40mm Apple Watch, this colorful case features a sleek gold tint and really helps your watch pop (as well as protect it). It even comes with its own built-in TPU screen protector, so you won’t have to worry about scuffing or scratching your watch’s screen. Perhaps even more impressive is the fact that it comes with a smart in-case texturing design that will prevent this case from sticking to your watch.

4. Fintie Carry Case for Apple Watch

BEST TRAVEL OPTION

Unlike the other watch cases on this list, which simply encase the watch, this model actually stores it. With enough space to fit your watch, Airpods or a charging cable, the Fintie is small enough to fit in most pockets but durable enough to keep your devices safe from shocks and bumps. It’s able to store every Apple Watch model, and it comes in two cool color options. A great accessory to have if you’re traveling and are thinking about packing your watch.

5. Apple Watch Case 38mm Series 3 & Series 2

BEST WATERPROOF OPTION

Designed for the Series 3 and 2 Apple Watches, this rugged case is a great option for the everyday explorer. Not only is it waterproof, it’s also been tested to survive a drop of up to three meters. The dual-layer design helps to add more cushioning, and the 1.2 mm rubber lip on the edge of the case is designed to help take all the impact from drops and shocks. At only 5 grams, it’s light as a feather. It’s also available in blue and red.

6. OWKEY Waterproof Apple Watch Case

MOST DURABLE

While some Apple Watch cases are designed to be as low-key and lightweight as possible, the OWKEY is all about protection. Designed for the 42mm Apple Series 3, this case completely covers your watch and brings with it a whole host of added precautionary measures. Shock-proof, scratch-proof, water-resistant and even dust-proof (you read that right), this hearty watch case is made for adventures, so don’t be surprised if it’s a little heavier than you expected.

7. Julk Series 3 38mm Case for Apple Watch Screen Protector

LIGHTEST CASE

This case is made to match the 38mm Series 3. This super discreet Apple Watch case fits snuggly over your watch and is designed to never get in the way of your everyday activities. The case itself is translucent, which means you won’t even notice it’s there. Unlike other cases, which taunt special features, colors or designs, this one’s a bare-bones model that lets you add some much-needed protection without sacrificing style or functionality.
