Get With the Times: The Best Apple Watch Cases for 2022

Have you ever thought about adding a case to your Apple Watch, but you weren't sure where to start? It can be overwhelming to know which case is best for you. How much should you pay? What style should you pick? Is it even worth getting a case at all?

Apple has sold over 130 million Apple Watches since they were introduced in 2015.  Since then, lots of brands have popped up to provide watch cases in all shapes and sizes--and prices. With so many cases out there, how can you choose the best one for you? 

Adding a case to your Apple Watch is common sense. It offers protection and comfort. Plus, it's the easiest way to make your Watch your chicest accessory. You probably already have a cute case on your phone--why not your watch, too? 

We've narrowed it down for you and put together this list of the best Apple Watch cases to keep your watch safe--and stylish. Read on to find out about the hottest Apple Watch cases for 2022. 

The Benefits of Apple Watch Cases

Apple Watches aren't cheap--nor are they bulletproof. Unlike your phone, which can be tossed around and dropped all day, your watch stays on your body, so you might think they're less susceptible to damage. 

But that isn't necessarily the case. Apple watches are susceptible to scratches. You could bump your wrist (with your Watch attached) or drop the watch as you're putting it on or taking it off. This may cause the glass screen to shatter, or the watch to stop working. 

Apple Watch cases also offer you an opportunity to express your personal style. With so many Apple Watches out there, a case is a perfect way to make yours stand out from the crowd. Whether you want to dress it up to the max, or simply add a minimalist case to help your smartwatch blend in with the rest of your wardrobe, there's a case for that. With a unique watch case, your Apple Watch will not only be protected from wear and tear, but it will also become your favorite accessory.

With a good case, you can rest easy knowing your Apple Watch is protected. There are several different types of Apple Watch cases to consider, and so many Apple Watch cases are pricey, boring, and not well made. All of the watch cases on our list, however, are affordable, beautiful, and durable; read on to find out which case is best for your lifestyle and watch model. 

For the Stylish: Cosmo Classic

First up is the Cosmo Classic. This eye-catching style adds a little shine to your classic everyday look. It can elevate an outfit in any setting--from the gym, to the office, to dinner with friends, and more.  

The Cosmo Classic is an easy-to-install snap-on case compatible with the Apple Watch Series 1, Series 2, Series 3, Series 4, Series, 5, Series 6, and SE. Designed with the girl boss in mind, it comes in five gorgeous colors: marble purple, marble green, marble blue, marble black, and marble pink, and features a gold border around the watch face that ties in beautifully with the gold accents throughout the watch band. 

The Cosmo Classic watch cases include shock-absorbing TPU bumpers to protect against drops, bumps, and falls, so you never have to worry about your watch getting scratched or scuffed. They also feature raised bezels to guard your watch face against damaging surfaces. The Classic's precise cutouts also ensure the stylish case doesn't interfere with the features of the watch that you love.

For the Minimalist: The Halo

The Halo is one of the most versatile Apple Watch cases. It comes with four different colored transparent cases that can easily be swapped out, you can rock a different style in the blink of an eye. 

The minimalist design of the Halo allows you to show off the sleek modern finish of your Apple Watch. For a more classic look, choose the clear or black cases, or show off your style with the blue or pink options. Since the Halo is only a case for the watch face itself, you can wear it with your favorite watch band, giving you even more control over the look of your watch.  

The Halo features shock-absorbing TPU bumpers to protect your watch from bumps and scrapes that can arise from daily wear. It also offers the added protection of raised edges, which keep the screen away from damaging surfaces. You should never have to trade style for function, so, like the Cosmo Classic, the Halo's precise cutouts also allow you access to all of your watch's features with no interference.  

Perfect for the minimalist who wants to showcase their watch to the fullest, the Halo is compatible with the Apple Watch Series 4, Series 5, Series 6, and SE. Check out the whole Halo collection to pick up matching cases for your phone, laptop, and more!

The Unity fits the Apple Watch Series 1, Series 2, or Series 3 (42 mm). It includes shock-absorbing bumpers to protect your watch during even the most intense workouts. Even better, the durable polycarbonate strap is scratch-resistant, and won't discolor or fade with time. The Unity's strap is ready for anything, making it just as fitting for sweaty gym days as for busy workdays. 

Often, "active" cases or styles can sacrifice aesthetics for better performance. Luckily, the Unity brings both. Featuring an adjustable strap that will fit most wrist sizes and elevated edges to keep your display extra safe from damaging surfaces, this model is a versatile and highly protective option if you live an active lifestyle. Plus, it comes in three cute color choices. 

Whether you choose classic black, popping pink, or electric green, the Unity is sure to check all your watch case boxes.
