The digital crown is also covered, but still allows for pushing and rotating. We are also told that the speaker, health sensors and microphone are completely uninterrupted, if you had any concern this will make your device not function as it should, all without compromising the beauty of the watch.

ActionProof’s new Bumper case for the Apple Watch has launched on Indiegogo, where the maker is touting its bumper-like sleeve. The case is designed to fit around the edges of the watch itself, not the strap, protecting the edges from the bumps that tend to happen with wearables.

ActionProof has a goal of $10,000 as of March 10th, and already on pace to meet it. For $20 you’ll get the limited edition pink, while $9 more will get you black with an orange accent dot.
