    Seeing as there's now a growing number of Apple Watch owners among philmugers, I'm creating this thread to discuss Apple Watch accessories. I don't have much. I own a 42mm Sports Edition with Blue Sports Band. I'm using a Champagne Gold Spigen Thin Case and a brandless wooden Apple Watch Stand.

    That's a nice stand. Where did you buy that?

    Got it from an online seller here in Singapore for SGD20. There's also a cheaper variant that's made of hard plastic for about half the price.

    I think a case would make sense for certain activities while wearing the watch ..like mountain biking. For everyday use personally don't see any use for a case. I plan to use mine (stainless steel Milanese) without a case even for hiking, tennis , casual bike rides and outdoor walks.

    Aside from extra protection, I might consider using a case for aesthetic purposes too. Like changing the look if you want a more rugged style or maybe changing the color/shade/finish according to your taste.

    It wouldn't hurt getting a tempered glass screen protector. it's just 5 bucks anyway. I'm getting one since I own the Sports Edition which doesn't have sapphire glass.

    These just arrived. I don't think I'll end up using them but hey, they were only 99¢ for 3 pcs. My Spigen stand should be arriving by the end of the month.

    A traditional Nato would cover the sensors. A 2 piece NATO style strap could work with an adapter.

    The newer stocks don't have the text. Amazon already refunded the entire amount. Even offered that I order it again with free expedited shipping.

    Nice! :) I wanted that stand too but I cannot afford it so I went with Spigen S330.

    Nice choices... thinking of getting them as well. You had it shipped directly to you (Fedex direct) or via forwarder?
