I bought my wife a Baby G about 4 months ago (BG 3000 3136 - pink gel) and she has broken 2 keepers on the band in that time. The first keeper broke within the first 30 days of ownership and Casio USA replaced the entire watch free ( to Casio customer service). This replacement watch band's keeper has lasted about 45 days and snapped.
She's a stay at home mom and not at all rough on these watches so I am a bit frustrated by the keepers breaking. Of course, me, the watch nut, talked up how good the G Shock was so she's really disappointed.
Do you guys have any advice on how to maintain these gel straps on the Baby G's so the keeper lasts longer than a month?
Also, does anyone know a source for either replacement Baby G bands, or more specifically, the keeper?
