Griffin keeps your Apple Watch safe and sound in style

griffin-aw-caseSo, you have decided to take a leap of faith and enter into the world of wearable technology – smartwatches in particular, and since your everyday life is well entrenched in the world of Apple, it would make perfect sense if you were to complement everything else with an Apple device whenever possible. The Apple Watch then, would be the most obvious candidate when it comes to picking up a smartwatch, and Griffin Technology has decided to make sure your pristine new Apple Watch will remain free from scratches and the ilk with a pair of new accessories – namely the Survivor Tactical Case and Ultra Thin Case. The new Survivor Tactical Case will enable users to wear their watch with confidence knowing their investment is protected, whereas the Ultra Thin Case adds easy snap-on color and style to the Apple Watch.

With close to 3 million Apple Watches sold in the US alone since its launch, this means that there is a decent enough market for Griffin’s new Survivor Tactical Case that will cost you $29.99 a pop. It is more than ready for whatever the day has in store, as the Survivor Tactical Case comes with a trio of 3 layers of protection for the Apple Watch, which means regardless of whether you are on the job, at the gym, on the trail or track, the Survivor Tactical will offer all the rugged protection expected from Survivor. The case’s co-molded TPE and polycarbonate layers ensure that impacts are deflected and absorbed, while the integrated screen also protects the Retina display without interfering with Apple Watch’s Force Touch.

As for the 0.5mm thin polycarbonate Ultra Thin Case, this happens to be the thinnest Apple Watch case in the market, as it can easily clip itself onto the face of the Apple Watch. You do not have to remove the watchband as you can still access the Apple Watch’s Digital Crown and button easily, and Griffin’s Ultra Thin Case is available for the 38mm watch and 42mm watch in packs of three including Polished Yellow Gold, Matte Gold, and Clear, or Polished Silver, Matte Silver, and Clear.
