This is a great product. I purchased the one made for the Series 2 watch and it has all the correct holes for speaker & mic. It looks beautiful. The only problem I had was installing it on the watch. It is a very tight fit, as it should be, and trying to get all the clips to snap together was a pain. The corner pins are guides and the clips that hold it together are on the sides. It takes patience and well worth it when it is done. I did not take away any stars for installation because it looks so good when finished. Don't hesitate to buy, just be patient.

Front cover difficult to install and stay in place, will fall off ocassionally.
Looks great, in fact, I love how it looks, that is, as long as the front cover piece doesn't fall off. The design for the front cover piece is such that even when installed properly, sometimes it doesn't stay on. If you see on my picture, the left side is firmly inserted, whereas on the right side there is a gap, and no matter how hard I try, it will not go all the way in. This leaves the cover prone to falling off. I've been tempted to crazy-glue it, but then I wouldn't be able to remove the case from the watch. I love all other Spigen cases I've purchased. They're rugged and look good, but this one was a bit of a disappointment.

It Protects your watch, and...well, it protects your watch.
I really wanted to like this case. I really like the iPhone cases offered by Spigen, and I hoped their offering for the Watch Series II would be on par with phone cases. Sadly, not so much.
I like the way the back portion of the case fits the watch; all the openings line up with the watch, the button works well, and there's plenty of room to manipulate the watch button. It increases the size of the watch a bit, but I didn't even notice after a couple of hours. It looks nice. And that about wraps up the Pros.
As others have observed, the top portion of the case can be difficult to install. There's no easy way to explain all the pinching and tucking you need to do to properly seat the upper section onto the lower. When there's no gap between upper and lower pieces all the way around the watch, it's on. I usually have to work my way around the watch a couple of times before it's seated right.
The screen protector DOES interfere with the watch's sensitivity to touch. I noticed it right away. It takes more pressure for a longer time to swipe and tap.
The screen protector scratches. There are no 'major' scratches, but there's a TON of those tiny 'micro' scratches from cleaning. And I've used only eyeglass cleaning cloths after first rinsing the screen.
The thing is a moisture magnet. At least once per week, and more often 3 (or more) times a week, I have to take the face off because water has gotten between the the watch face and cover. When that happens, you watch's touch screen stops functioning, and you have to take it apart and dry it. And I'm not talking about going for a swim - washing my hands, getting caught in the rain, and even sweat running down my arm have caused moisture to form under the screen protector.
On the other hand, though, I got it to protect my watch, and it does do that. It's an inexpensive, throwaway item that protects a much bigger investment, so with that in mind, I can live with less attractive shortcomings of this case.

I really like this case. It consists of two pieces, one piece for the back, and one or the face. Thread the band through the bottom half of the case, then snap on the top. I suppose that one could just wear the case on the bottom of the watch, and achieve some protection, if aesthetics is more important than money.
It was a bit difficult to snap on the top to the bottom, but, once done, seems solid. This case is simple molded plastic, an inexpensive solution to protect an expensive item. I have only had my watch for a couple of weeks, but have found that I often lightly hit the face on objects.
There is no problem using the touch screen functions, digital crown, or dock buttons, while the case is on the watch. Although there are no physical holes, in the case, for the microphone and/or speaker, the sound is not impaired.

This case covers the screen unlike most along with all other edges of the device, without being as bulky and large as some of the competing branded items, it also appears to have held up much longer than some of the other Apple Watch cases that I have tried so far.

It gets the job done for the price......
For the price it's exactly what you'd expect to get and for my day to day purpose it works great. Like any "tough" case it adds significant depth to your watch, approximately 3 times the amount, and approximately 1/4'' to the width.
The part that goes around the body of the watch is a tough rubber. The silver button located below the crown isn't permanently attached to the case. It will pop out from the inside, to replace it just push it back in from the inside. While the case is on the watch it will remain firmly in place.
The watch crown is nicely recessed and protected by the case but it does hinder its ease of access but isn't an issue overall for me.
The screen protector serves its function. It is completely plastic and it's not permanently attached to the watch case. The silver color is a surface paint and if you scratch it it reveals white underneath. You secure it by pushing it down onto the top which pushes onto raised rubber portions located at the corners. It sometimes takes a little work to get the top to sit flush and you have to work it down around the edges by forcing a lip that is on the case under the edges. The top doesn't seal so water, dirt, etc, can get under the top so any significant amount of any of the above will require you to remove the top to clean.
Overall I gave it 4 stars because as the rating implies I liked it but it's not perfect. It does make you watch a bit clunky but i'd rather that than a broken one.

Love this for protecting my watch
Love this for protecting my watch. It's a little bulky, but it doesn't add weight. Installation directions were a little vague with only pictures to follow, but I was able to figure out that I need to start on an end and then it went on much easier. Fits together well with no gaps between the bottom and top pieces. Pink portion is a very close match to the actual shade and sheen of the watch. The attached protective screen works well and I do not have a delay or any difficulty accessing apps. The side button is protected with a sliver meta button cover, but the crown is left exposed for easy manipulation.

Works As Intended
I don't know what you people do (those that claimed the cover falls off easily) to keep knocking off the cover. I've never had problem with it once, and I work in a rough profession where my wrist could by swinging around and banging on walls, the ground, people's faces, etc. I think those who complain that it's easily fall off do not know how to install it properly. User's error.
The only thing that is annoying is when the watch gets wet. The water would be stuck underneath the cover and you will be able to see the water on the watch' screen. The water doesn't dry off easily, so I would have to remove the cover to wipe off the water. But even with this happens often, the cover still stays on tightly when I put it back on the watch.
For the money I spent on this product, it is well worth the price. I would buy it again.

Protects my watch very well.
This fit my series 2 watch perfectly. It didn't add a ton of bulk,but gives me confidence that my watch won't get all banged up at work. I liked the fact that the screen protector was built in, and I didn't have to stick anything on my screen. Just be aware that if it gets submerged or even subjected to a careless hand washing, moisture can get between the case/screen protector and the watch. Due to the way it clamps on, I'm hesitant to take the cover off because I'm worried the very tiny catches will wear out and the screen protector won't stay on.

Don’t waste your money
The screen is not touchable, in other words it doesn’t work. Don’t waste your money! I’m returning this product.
