Speck debuts CandyShell Fit, an Apple Watch cover

Speck, a leader in smartphone and tablet cases, has gotten into the Apple Watch game with its $29.99 CandyShell Fit protective cover.

The CandyShell Fit for Apple Watch ships later this month for $30. Speck

The Apple Watch continues to gain accessories, the latest of which comes from Speck, a leader in the smartphone and tablet case market.

It's the CandyShell Fit, a $30 protective cover that "provides full bezel protection to guard the smartwatch's glass screen, defend against shock, and allow complete access to the digital crown and side button."

The cover has a dual-layer construction. Speck

Speck says that like its smartphone cases, the CandyShell Fit combines a hard polycarbonate shell with a TPU interior to absorb shock. A raised bezel rises 1.5mm above the Apple Watch touchscreen to act as a bumper "between the face and surrounding environments." According to the company, the cover is sweat-resistant and can also withstand extreme temperatures and topical chemicals like sunscreen and lotions.

Most accessory makers are focusing on the larger size Watch, but a Speck rep said that the CandyShell Fit will be available for both sizes (38mm and 42mm) and all three versions of Apple Watch.

CandyShell Fit will ship in a variety of colors starting later in May. Speck isn't taking preorders, but you can sign-up to be notified when it officially becomes available for sale.
