    Would be up for one of these for the Garmin Instinct if made…

    Suunto? I’d buy now for a Suunto band.

    Nice as a fashion item, but some of us don’t own Apple/smart watches because we can’t wear them in the buildings where we work. Don’t want to take the chance of forgetting to take it off and then having a lot of paperwork to do…

      The number of people who wear Apple watches far exceeds the number of people who can specifically not wear them for security concerns.

      But since you brought it up, what kind of watch DO you wear? Maybe the manufacturer will see an opportunity to expand to the watch you wear.

        Please suunto. Crap bands have always been a major weak point. I used to spent as much replacing the bands as I had on the watch itself so switched to garmin as it felt like a wrought.
