Review: Catalyst's Apple Watch Waterproof Case

 Catalyst's Apple Watch Waterproof Case

Apple doesn't claim that the Apple Watch is waterproof, although a number of folks have given it a go with some success. For those of you who want to really keep your Apple Watch safe, under water, and in rugged conditions, there's the Case for Apple Watch ($59.99) from Catalyst. 

I like that the waterproof Apple Watch case comes in a choice of colors and that the case and strap are comfortable. Catalyst done a great job integrating and protecting the Digital Crown. However, it does add noticeable bulk and it hides the beautiful Apple Watch behind plastic. 


  • Choice of colors
  • Comfortable case and strap
  • Protects from water and more
  • Integrated Digital Crown


  • Adds bulk
  • Hides Apple Watch behind plastic

Final Verdict

If you want to really keep your Apple Watch safe, under water, and in rugged conditions, try this waterproof Apple Watch case from Catalyst.
