    The surprising benefit of a carbon fiber insert...

    So, after wearing rhe Rangeman for a day or two, it had the usual white stuff on it(skin cells? )
    And was really hard to clean even with a toothbrush.
    On the Frogman, the Carbon Fiber insert is the part that touches the skin and not resin.
    Anyways there is much less white stuff, and if there is, it washes easily even without a toothbrush!
    And it has a much smoother texture, so I'm really liking it so far.

    Well, then that is a good thing.
    Don't know what else to say.

    It's just that I'm shocked about the difference from the Rangeman
    I scrubbed the hell out of it's strap until it was clean.

    Do you wear the Watch (very) tight ?

    That is a good discovery. Thanks for sharing. My PRW6000 has the more expensive carbon fiber band, but the standard band is available as well. When it is time to replace it, I'll keep this in mind.

    Nope, i wish i could but it's either too tight or a bit loose, i think Casio should work on the spacing of the holes(is there a name for it?) in their straps because i had the same problem with the Rangeman, or it's just that my wrist is weird, I'm not sure.

    The white material is likely exfoliated skin cells. Occurs in everyone. Wondering if your Watch is to tight which could cause it to 'cake' in areas.

    The carbon fiber is a sheet under resin, and not exposed.
    The Frogman strap is carbon fiber between two layers of resin.

    The texture is different than the Rangeman, no doubt, but the material is basically the same, or similar.

    White stuff - so hard to clean after only a couple days???

    Mine don't have this problem. I don't ever have "white stuff" on the underside of my straps.

    Are you wearing your Rangeman in the shower? Maybe it's from soap residue??
