All functions of the watch operate normally. I’ve had no issue with speaker volume or using the microphone for dictation. Since this is a larger case, I expected to have problems with taking accidental screen shots or inadvertently activating Siri (i.e. Epik Case) but this hasn’t been an issue.
Pros: The case has provided me waterproof protection, and the watch does seem well protected. All functionality is retained with the case on.
Cons: The case is a bit of an acquired taste when it comes to the esthetic appearance. As mentioned above, I’ve had no issue with the band coming off; however, I do get the feeling that the band material and the way that is anchored to the case could have been better engineered. On a personal note, perhaps an all white option could have been offered as well. Although not overly complex to install, it does take time to perform correctly; therefore, this isn’t a case you’ll be swapping out with other band/case combinations frequently or quickly.
All in all, a solid case that performs as advertised.
Update: 3 1/2 months in… I just returned from a vacation that involved lots of pool and ocean time. This case did not disappoint. As an Apple Watch case and band junkie, this particular case has performed magnificently, and has proven to be quite legit.
Update #2: Ive always felt that the original band that comes with the case left a bit to be desired as far as feel and quality. Being a fan of NATO straps, I found a great replacement band, and I’ve included pictures. I now feel that the watch has the look, feel, and functionality that I always was looking for. The band was purchased on Amazon. (HNS watch strap. 24mm G10 Mod Ballistic Nylon NATO watch strap.)

As long as you follow the directions carefully, this will protect your Apple Watch from things like this. And it looks pretty good too.
Update: 18 August 2016: Been wearing a few days now and it’s very comfortable. It adds a bit of bulk but the tradeoff is well worth it. One caveat: the buttons on the unit I got are orange and not red as pictured, and the case is more what I’d call carbon gray than black. That said the colors are fine and I like orange. What’s important is that IT WORKS. Do yourself a favor: spend a little extra over the Apple sport band and get this.

Tip: To ensure a good fit, make sure there is no air pockets within the silicon liner. Once all the air pockets are removed, it will help ensure a secure fit when snapping the case together, followed by the screwing the safety screw in. You can easily do this within a minute or so.
I would highly recommend this for any user that may encounter the chance of submerging your Apple Watch underwater. Please note, I do not intentionally use this for activities such as swimming, but more of a safety precaution when the chance of submersion is possible. Please note this as you consider my review. I know this product is marketed for submersion, so I know my uses should ensure proper safety of my watch.
