Epik has been designed by Scott Wilson, former Global Creative Director of Nike’s watch and technology division, who is also a recipient of the Smithsonian’s prestigious National Design Award. Forged from aluminum alloy and premium performance materials, Epik can transform any 42mm Apple Watch into a high tech gear that is as comfortable in the boardroom as it is on a mountaintop.

“Epik’s rugged case encloses and protects the Apple Watch’s more sensitive and delicate areas. The premium, anti-dust and dirt coated silicone sport strap or aluminum link bracelet with silicone sub-links and butterfly clasp, are designed for long term comfort and durability, even through your toughest workouts. Epik’s highly tactile Active-Control Crown couples seamlessly with Apple’s Digital Crown to enhance grip, making interaction with your apps more efficient in highly active moments.”

The campaign has already raised nearly 70% of its pledged goal of $100,000 with over a month still to go. To find out more and make a pledge, hit up the Kickstarter page at this link.
