I’ve posted on this before: I don’t (yet) own an Apple Watch. When they were first released, I thought they looked very stylish but delicate, and I felt that I’d be afraid to engage in the types of heavy-duty fitness and other activities that I tend to favor. But as usual, 3rd-party companies have stepped in to solve this. The latest product that makes me think that an Apple Watch might be nearer in my future than I’d initially thought is the Rhino Runner by Rhinobands. 

An upgrade from the standard, all-silicone Rhino Band, the Rhino Runner features multiple layers of protection, including 3 layers of shock protection as well as an optional built-in screen protector. Rhino Runner effectively encases your Apple Watch in a Tony Stark-like suit of armor. Of course, this is excellent, but what I like the best thing about the Rhino Runner is that it resembles my beloved G-Shock watches that I wore for years. The Rhino Runner is available for pre-order in Black (pictured), Green, Tan, White and Red colors for $34.99 base model and $39.99 including the screen protector option. Visit rhinoband.com for more info or to preorder.

  2. I bought a Rhino Band Runner with the optional screen protector based on your review–what a poorly engineered piece of rubbish. I don’t know if it would protect my watch because after two hours of wear I realized it rendered the watch useless. It was so bulky that it held the watch sensors off of my wrist. The watch kept reverting to the security code screen and no pulse data could be obtained. Halfway through a 30 minute run, the screen protector fogged up and I could no longer read the watch. I quickly returned the watch following Rhino Band’s instructions precisely. They conveniently claim they never received the band back and have refused to refund my money. The band might work on a bulky person with fat wrists but that is not the profile of most runners. Sketchy product from a company with sketchy ethics. Please do not promote them.

    1. Tim, I’m sorry that you had a bad experience with this product, but this was not a review. It was just a news post introducing people to the product as we thought it looked interesting enough to talk about it. Our reviews are clearly marked as such.
