Wearing wrist band under Gear when sweating
I read a disconcerting thread this afternoon about potential fogging of the camera lens on the Gear. The poster explained how sweat from one's wrist can enter the small vent hole on the underside of the watch band, below the camera.
I am concerned that could happen to my new Gear. I jog and weight train each evening. I wear a Suunto X6 watch, for which it is soaking in sweat during the daily workout. This hasn't been a problem with the water-proof watch. But I would expect the new Gear to suffer the same fate as the previous poster.
So, I obtained some thin neoprene fabric and sewed it into a custom fitting wrist band. Afterwards I tried it out on my regular exercise routine. Below are photos taken immediately after my work-out, with sweat still present.
The photo shows the sweat penetrating the stitching of the wrist band, but this not a problem. I wore both watches. You can see the sparkling sweat on the underside of the Suunto watch, meanwhile the Gear stayed dried and protected.
Note, I have left protective adhesive tape over the vent hole of the Gear wrist band.
