The Apple Watch Ultra is the most rugged and feature-packed wearable made by Apple yet. And no doubt it can withstand a lot and does not really need a case to protect it, but my mind says otherwise. If you’re among the ones looking to get a case for your newly bought Apple Watch Ultra, I’ve curated a list of the best Apple Watch Ultra cases you can get right now.
1. Spigen Rugged Armor case – Editor’s choice
Spigen is one of the few brands renowned for making rugged and slim cases that provide great protection to your devices. The Spigen Rugged Armor is the perfect choice for those looking to bulk up the Apple Watch Ultra further until it depicts the legendary G-Shock watches. It even has RUGGED ARMOR and SHOCK RESIST engraved on the top and bottom bezel, with an angular design protruding to protect the screen.
Crafted from durable thermoplastic polyurethane, which is TPU in simple words, the Rugged Armor case sports a unibody design. It also boasts precise cutouts not only for the sensors at the back but also for the Digital Crown, three microphone holes, 10 speaker holes, and a button above the action button that retains the original tactile feedback as the device.
- Rugged build
- Made from durable TPU
- Tactile buttons
- Adds a little bulk
2. Misxi hard PC case – Clear cover
Clear cases allow you to flaunt the design of your device while also ensuring protection. The Misxi hard polycarbonate case is an ultra-thin protective case. It comes with a tempered glass screen protector, which features 9H hardness and helps retain the natural touch and feel of the Apple Watch Ultra’s display. Moreover, it does not degrade the display quality.
You no longer need to worry about scratching the display. It is a clear case with precise cutouts for the Digital Crown, microphone, and speakers. The process to apply the case is quite simple too. Also, you get 2 transparent protective cases with screen protectors in the box. You can now flaunt your Apple Watch and protect it simultaneously.
- 9H hardness tempered glass
- Clear case with precise cutouts
- Users report the case houses dust within gaps
3. Qoosea bumper case – Shockproof option
The Qoosea shockproof bumper case is a 360-degree protective case that covers all four corners and the sides of your Apple Watch Ultra. The case is made from high-quality, shock-absorbing (thermoplastic polyurethane) TPU, which offers more durability and protection than traditional polycarbonate.
Cutouts for cases are not always accurate, but that is not the case with Qoosea shockproof bumper case. Moreover, it is easy to apply as you don’t need to take the Apple Watch off your hands and can just snap the case in. It does not interfere when changing the Watch Band, either. And you get two cases for the price of one.
- Rugged build with 360-degree protection
- Can install the case without taking off the Apple Watch
- No significant cons
4. VeveXiao rugged case – With strap band
The VeveXiao rugged case for the Apple Watch is a unique product. It isn’t just a case but rather has straps attached to the case made out of the same materials. While we’re on the topic of materials, the case is made from PC, the band is made from flexible TPU, and a stainless steel buckle to help adjust the band to fit your wrists perfectly.
The bezels are raised to protect the screen from scratches, and the materials with a shockproof design ensure to cushion your watch from accidental bumps and drops. Furthermore, the cutouts are precise and do not hinder with the functioning of any of the sensors. If you have owned the Apple Watch and tend to change bands frequently, the VeveXiao is an excellent choice as it comes in 12 different color options, so you can make a collection out of it as well.
- Shockproof design
- A case with straps attached to it
- Stainless steel buckle
- Wide range of colors to choose from
- No significant cons
5. Tocol ultra-thin case – Fine design
The Tocol ultra-thin case for Apple Watch Ultra comes in a pair and offers excellent protection without bulking the watch. The pack also includes a pair of tempered glass screen protectors. Both of these products combined offer military-grade protection. It was drop-tested more than 3,000 times from a height of 8 FT, and there was no damage to the screen.
You no longer have to worry about scratching the screen or the casing of your Apple Watch Ultra. Moreover, the sleek and minimal design, especially the Golden colorway of the case, blends with the Apple Watch Ultra casing. The cutouts for the speaker and mic grilles are precise. Finally, you can wirelessly charge your watch without removing the case.
- 2 cases in different colors
- 2 tempered glass screen protectors
- Minimal design and excellent protection
- Value for money
- No significant cons
6. DGYSG Translucent Hard Case – Tactical protection
The DGYSG translucent hard case is a perfect fit for people who find the Apple Watch Ultra to be small on their wrists or just want to protect it from all fronts. It has four color options and uses a crystal-hard polycarbonate case that offers rugged protection. And, while the case looks bulky, it weighs 14 grams. So no compromises on protection.
The cutouts are accurate on the case and come with matching watch bands too. These are made out of soft rubber and feature a 316L steel buckle. Your device will be protected from all angles. However, you might need an additional screen protector if you’re particular about safeguarding the solid display.
- Unique design
- 360-degree protection
- Multiple color options
- Bulky design
- Slightly expensive
7. Caseology Vault Case – Slim and light
Caseology is yet another widely popular case manufacturer. They sell quality products, and the Caseology Vault is a testament to the same. It is a slim case carved out of flexible Thermoplastic Polyurethanes (TPU). If you’re tired of smooth finishes on products and love the sandstone-like feel, the Vault case is a perfect fit for you with its rough and grainy texture.
Additionally, you will not miss out on the satisfactory tactile feel of the Side or Action buttons, as the cutouts are exact. It comes with raised bezels to protect the screen. However, if you want complete protection, good-quality tempered glass will do the job. Lastly, even though it sports a sleek design, it is certified with military-grade protection.
- Sleek design
- Sandstone texture finish
- Military-grade certification
- No significant cons
8. ECSEM Case pack – Multiple choices
The Apple Watch Ultra is only available in one color option. While many might be okay with it, I’m not. If you’re someone like me and want to customize the Apple Watch Ultra to match your outfits, the 10-pack bumper case pack from ECSEM is where your search should end.
You get 10 cases, all different colors, made from flexible TPU material. The icing on the cake is that the case comes with a built-in screen protector too. The cutouts are precise, and you get 12 months of warranty too.
- All round protection
- 10 cases to match any watch band or your outfits
- The shiny color coating makes the case look cheap
- Going by reviews, fit and finish is questionable
9. amBand Protective Bumper – G-Shock lookalike
Want to convert your Apple Watch Ultra into a G-Shock? At least in terms of design, you can do it with the amBand Protective Bumper case. It is a complete package, as you get a bumper case attached to rubber watch straps. It also comes with a pair of auto-alignment screen protectors that are rated for 9H of mineral hardness.
amBand used a premium TPU band and raised bezels that offer shock protection. The cutouts are not only precise, but there are metal buttons for the Side and Action buttons that improve their tactility.

10. V-MORO Metal Bumper – Switch to analog
Do you want your Apple Watch Ultra to blend in with your formal attire? Or do you want it to look a little like an analog watch? If that is what you’re looking for, the Metal Bumper case by V-MORO is the perfect fit. It also comes with a stainless steel strap, so you do not have to purchase one separately. Few might want to do this with a smartwatch, but I’m here to provide you with multiple choices.
You will have to fit the Apple Watch Ultra in a silicone case. Only after this should you fit the whole module in the stainless steel case. While the installation process might be a little lengthy, the overall results achieved by it are going to be worth it, especially if you want your watch to appear more classy and match your formal outfits.
- Stainless steel build
- Silicone case to prevent the watch from scratching
- Packed in an exquisite box which makes it a great gifting option
- Watch band adjuster
