    Since Apple says the leather bands are Not water resistant, will u be buying some repellent from anyplace like footlocker to spray on your leather bands? Real leather tends to stink when wet.

    I think in cases where you think it'll get wet you'll want the Sport Band to swap out.

    Just keep it dry as you would with leather shoes and you'll be fine.

    Swap out for the Sport bands for working out with it.

    Just wash it or wipe it down. It's just a stainless steel watchband and you can look after it like any normal stainless steel watchband.

    I have had a stainless steel watch for the past 30 years and don't take it off when I exercise. I just give my watch a rinse and wipe afterwards.

    I suppose it's no different from the link bracelet, as long as they're not on the Sport model (stainless steel + aluminum + salt from sweat = potential galvanic corrosion).
