    How is the quality of this strap? They are worth the money, especially with the sale/discount codes now. Just wondering how much ~$10 buys. That version is especially nice looking..

    I dont have a lot of leather straps to compare it with other than a Hirsch Liberty and the Croco that came with the Aqua Terra.

    Compared to the Hirsch it is way more flexible (apx half the thickness), but the detailing on the Hirsch is better. The Kvarnsö also has a certain odour which I personally assosciate with cheap ebay stuff.

    Assuming the smell vanishes over time it is a nice alternative. I'll wear it for a few weeks and see how it holds up.

    I've not worn a watch for over 20 years, trying to get used to something on my wrist all day and night...

    Garmin Vivoactive HR

    Aside from getting used to wearing it I am really really loving it. The heart sensor and workout stuff is great but the notifications make it essential to my EDC now.

    I saw an approximately $45 Casio chronometer that had nice visible hands. If/when I get a job I could conceivably buy it...
    That one doesn't look like the hands would disappear.

    Image from Amazon. This is without a doubt my CHEAPEST (and I am very purposeful in that choice of words!) watch. Bought it as a beater for when I am working around the house. But its actually comfortable to wear so I elevated it to a slot in my rotation! Until either the band or the battery let go, it will continue that way. When the battery dies I will give it a decent funeral...; when the band dies it will become a beater pocket watch!

    L'chaim!
