The band is very comfortable, it blends like butter onto the wrist, but I will change it out and put this one up. I am not crazy about leather bands, but this one really is comfortable.
I’ll set it tonight and see how it does during the night and wear it tomorrow and see how it goes.
I am happy I got this, I hesitated and told myself no, but I couldn’t get it and the stupid crazy price out of my mind. Glad I got this and gave into the voices in my head, it fits the wrist real nice, zero overhang and it sits comfortable so far.
My second watch that came in today.
I’m still waiting on the Second Hour to come in. Maybe in a few days.
