Epik case gives Apple Watch the reinforcement it needs

Lust List: Epik Apple Watch case by Lunatik

There are times you want to protect your precious Apple Watch from the extreme abuse you put it through each day — welding, chopping down trees, building your own car, the usual — and there are times you want to make a fashion statement that’s larger than life.

Lunatik’s Epik aluminum Apple Watch case and watchband combo can do both those things for you. The outsize aluminum case bolts around your Apple Watch, and the seriously metal link watch band will make you the envy of every other badass.

I took off my green Sport band, put the band-free Apple Watch into the Epik case, then used the included allen wrench to bolt the case closed onto the black metal link band (which also comes in silver aluminum if you need it shiny). Then I strapped it to my wrist.

Suddenly, I had an Apple Watch that felt super-manly and chunky. Wait, let me rephrase: The awesome size of this thing is a marked contrast to the slim profile of the Apple Watch with the green Sports band. It’s like going from a Swatch to a diving watch, minus the waterproof and depth-resistance stuff. (You also can get a less pricey version of the Epik with a silicone band and either a metal or polycarbonate case.)

This Epik case is super-protective, too, as it wraps your Apple Watch inside a veritable tank that still allows you complete access to the Digital Crown, side button, speakers and (of course) the screen and heart rate monitor.

If you need a massive chunk of metal to supersize your Apple Watch while protecting it from all the crazy stuff you do on a daily basis, take a look at the Lunatik Epik Aluminum Apple Watch case/band right now.

Price: $219.95 ($139.95 with silicone band)

Buy from: Lunatik (aluminum case, metal link band), Amazon (polycarbonate case/silicone band)
