I will use a sports band, but I mean the actual watch case. I can't imagine it /looks/ out of place with a sports band, but I am not sure how much the weight difference makes. I would guess many people do this.i've used stainless with no problems, but it just doesn't feel right, and looks out of place.
why not just buy a sports band for workouts. its super easy to switch them
Yes, been doing lane swimming in a pool and have also done many open water swims since last year (including several during triathlons). I got to the point where I wanted to have the watch on to track all my activity/workouts, and it was always fine in water. I mean, it is rated for 1m depth continuous for 30 minutes. While swimming it was never submerged for 30 minutes continuously.Swimming ? ^^
