Anyone else thinks the watch is too pretty to use for the gym? Lulz. How sweat resistant is it? I have the regular watch version.
I do the same thing with mine. I wear my white sports band at the gym and use my milanese when I'm done.I used it at the gym tonight. Lots of banging around on the treadmill and on some other equipment, but nothing too major. The sapphire screen held up nicely.
I also sweat a lot, so I usually switch out my Milanese loop for a WSB. The sports bands are very comfortable and sweat resistant.
Exactly the same boat here. You shouldn't get leather wet, anyway. I swap out my black leather loop for a black sports bands at the gym. Actually worse the sports band to Disneyland earlier this week, too. I find it to be a much more comfortable fit for extended use (I was awake for nearly 20 hours, and had the watch one for almost the entire time), or uses where sweat is likely.I have the Stainless Steel and feel it looks just fine. But I will switch to my Black Sports Band (from an Apple Leather Loop and a third party leather band) because I do sweat a lot - as my wife keeps reminding me - and in my eyes the material of the Sports Band should hold up better.
It is water proof to begin with. And I've worn Stainless Steel watches to workout in for years and never seen any indication of usage.I do like the sports band I think it's built for activity with nice material. I'm more concerned about the stainless if it reacts well to sweat. All my watches are stainless except the iPod nano watch.
