The Apple Watch is one of the leading smartwatches out there right now, but there’s one problem. For many, the Apple Watch is a major expense that requires some scrimping and saving. But despite its high price tag, this luxurious watch can feel a bit delicate. It’s not totally waterproof, and it could have been designed to be more impact resistant. For those who want to use the Apple Watch’s fitness tracking features during an intense workout, there’s always a bit of concern that the watch could get damaged. If you want to protect your investment, consider adding one of these colorful, stylish cases to your new Apple Watch. Here are five of the leading protective cases for the new Apple Watch.
