Replacement of case
Thank you for your prompt replacement of my watch case. I am more confident that my watch is once more in the safe catalyst case any not being held together by medical tape. Thank you
Could be tougher
The case is not bad the plastic seems a bit flimsy overall I would have liked to see a slightly stronger case design in a ruggged adventure case. Good for protection for gym etc. looks good too.
Gives the finger to mud, oil, water, stones and more.
I'm a water reticulation technician and so I end up digging in mud, stones and getting smeared with oil and so on. This case and strap gives me peace of mind that my watch is going to be protected. The band is soft and comfortable but strong and durable. I was worried about the pins coming off on the strap but they seem pretty sturdy. The only thing I would say is that the case itself is fairly smooth. It would be nice to see it with more of a texture so that scratches etc didn't show up so easily. Great work Catalyst!
*Personally vouching that this watch holds up to an intense, sloppy, muddy obstacle course race.* I looked into this watch hoping that it would provide enough protection to stand up to the Spartan race I had signed up for. I wanted to wear my watch to track the data I was sure would be unique through such an intense event, and the Catalyst watch case did not disappoint. People often say to leave such gear at home - why break it and why bother bringing such equipment to a race that is supposed to be bare-bones and primal? -- Because why the heck would you not want to record such amazing results?! Anyways, through the mud, gravel, and brambles, this case keeps it all out. The rubber case that seals the watch in is great. But, disclaimer, you will need to buy a separate screen protector/cover. This will lead to mud surrounding the edges of the screen protector, but the rubber portion that this case comes with will seal the water and mud out. I am very happy I decided to buy. Good luck, Spartans.
Tough case for an expensive watch
This case for the Series 3 Apple Watch is great at protecting your investment from all manner of things that could ruin it. My work life has me getting coated with oil, grease, dirt, and concrete as well climbing on steel and concrete, there is no way my watch would survive my life from the factory, but with my Catalyst Watch case I have zero worries as it’s proven itself time and again! I do recommend using a tempered glass screen cover to double down on protection. I have broken two of the cases with accidental hard hits at sideways angles, the only part that actually broke was where the retaining screw screws into inside the case, but they’ve survived many other hard hits and many chemicals and abrasives so it’s still worth every penny. No matter how harsh your life is on your possessions this Watch case will likely make sure your Watch will survive!
