    Trim your wrist. That's what I do as I can't stand hair getting in the way of the watch.

    So you look incredible when you're not wearing the watch.

    I'm not talking about shaving the arm. Trim just enough so the hair doesn't overlap the screen. The Watch sits rather high so you're not trimming that much and you'll still look hairy.

    I have that problem and would not trim it! Don't want to have hair growing stronger and thicker over time!
    I just "tuck" them on the side lol

    You won't encounter this problem if you simply trim instead of shave. When you trim using a trimmer (with an adjustable trimming comb), you cut the hair lying on their side at an angle so they remain soft. On the other hand, when you shave you blunt their ends so they feel stiffer and that's why people perceive new hairs as growing "stronger and thicker."

    This!

    I slide my finger along the bottom edge of the watch every now & again which neatly 'tucks' them away. My Hoco metal strap though looks a little the wrist hair version of old paving slabs where the weeds grow up through the cracks & gaps!

    I have cats with grey/white fur and I'm always freaking out that I have scratches on my watch/iphone/ipad/imac/macbook/anything when one of their hairs gets statically stuck to it.

    I'm gonna shear them like a sheep.

    My arms are pretty clean when compared to a gorilla but a cat hair has given me a good scare a few times.

    I banged my 42SS into a door casing hard enough where everyone looked up and I was pretty sure my watch would have been damaged. After sitting a looking carefully . . . . . Still perfect without a single scratch. :cool:

    While I don't have "gorilla hair" on my arms I had one or two occasions where I thought: "S*it, the screen is cracked!!".

    LOL
