Designed for a precise fit, this accessory from OtterBox is the perfect addition to your Apple Watch if you were looking for more than average protection and like having a slightly bulky-looking wearable on your wrist. Its bumper will block most impacts with relative ease, protecting your watch from dings, and accidental slams or scrapes.

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.
