Great case that is built for everyday use and heavy duty wear.
Reviewed in Canada on October 7, 2020
I was looking for a go-to watch cover that could withstand work, and that didn't take as much work to unpin from the sides of the Fitbit. What I didn't expect though was how good quality the case was, and admittedly, how little it held the wrist-funk smell that some other cases hold onto until they're washed again, even if they're a silicone band.
If you're someone who wants a watch that isn't too flashy, and leans more towards the masculine side, I highly recommend this product.
The bonus is that for all the times where my depth perception is off and the watch hits a door knob or catches somewhere, it's withstood that wear and tear. I've worn this driving a tractor, doing yard work, working on my car, painting, trail running, in the shower, swimming (freshwater lake), laying new baseboards, ripping up flooring, taking down a shed...it's definitely built for heavy duty activity. Now that I've tried it, I don't imagine going back to other cases.
Circled back to update:
It's been just under a year and this is the only band I use. I used to switch them out but this is it for me. It's withstood a lot of wear and tear and protected the screen a few more times than I'd like to admit from where I probably could've cracked the screen. I take if off only to charge the device or to give my wrist a break and the bands, and pieces have all held up. I've been going on more hikes and even with a chunk of sun exposure, this band holds up. Over the Winter months, I was on hikes several times a week and though a bit lumpy in mittens and gloves it held up then, too. As it got warmer, I ditched the gloves and the band held up to the cold exposure, too. Can't believe I spent money on other bands and didn't just go with this one in the first place!
Bought it in October 2020, and updated this review in August 2021. Still highly recommend it because it is peak practicality!
