You may encounter the same, Sinn like strap issues with the Promaster...I have taken my snorkeling (no suit, no real need for a dive watch ) and was ok ... suit up however maybe a different story.

I should be ok if the Ctitizen goes over the suit initially.

The issue with the Sinn was its a fixed loop with a dive extension. If the Sinn rubber fits my wrist normally I only have the dive extension to make an adjustment for the wetsuit. In my case the wetsuit and glove was still not enough to take up all the slack created by using the extension. It seems like the extension creates around 5mm extra distance on the strap and my combined suit and gloves are 5mm (its a 5mm suit but the wrists are tapered to 3mm with a silicon inner). That's fine until you start to dive and the water pressure compresses the suit. By the time I was at 15mm the Sinn was loose and could spin right around my wrist.

The Citizen has a buckle and tang, so as long as it fits over the wrist area of the suit it should be ok and because it has a buckle I can tighten it on the fly under water if it got too loose. We will see how we go Image
