What you need to know

  • LifeProof's new eco-friendly Apple Watch case comes in four different colors.
  • Each watch case is made from 85% recycled ocean plastic.

The Apple Watch is a pretty sturdy little thing but that doesn't mean that it can't get scratched or dinged during the course of a day. That's why some people like to use an Apple Watch case — and LifeProof's new eco-friendly offering looks like a great option.

Available in four different colors, the new Apple Watch case comes in 40mm and 44mm size options so all sizes are covered. It's compatible with all Apple Watches from Apple Watch Series 4 and up, including Apple Watch SE.

What makes this case so cool, apart from keeping your watch safe and looking great, is its construction. Each Apple Watch case is made from 85% recycled ocean plastic — and that's something that should very much be lauded. What's more, each purchase includes a $1 donation to a water-minded non-profit, too.

There's a new way to wear your Watch. Form-fitting and made from 85% recycled ocean plastic, the Case for Apple Watch is low profile and low impact. Covering your watch front and back, it deflects damage and keeps every Watch feature working. And when you buy, you can give a free $1 to one of our water-minded nonprofit partners.

Each case is priced at $29.99 and you can learn more on the LifeProof website. Items are in stock now, so what are you waiting for? I'm a big fan of the Neptune colorway myself. There's just something about blue and green that ticks all of my boxes.
