Should I regret getting the gw5000 instead of GW-S5600 as my only watch (for the near future at least) ?
I have no desire to get the 5000 at this point now that I have my subdued S5600

So, the bezel (m5610) I ordered arrived and I had a spare 5000 strap lying around, so using Kevio's tutorial, I was able to install the strap with ease. The advice about guiding the spring bar tip back into lug hole was very useful. I even applied a GW-5000 crystal protector, which I've added to most of my squares, to the S5600. It's not a perfect fit since the crystal of the S5600 has slightly different dimensions compared to the 5000 and 5600 models.
It's odd, but I think I miss the carbon strap already.
I love the look of this subtle S5600, but I may return to the stock look soon. I strangely enough liked the way the carbon strap looked and felt.
The 5000 strap is comfortable though, so I'm torn.
That said, swapping the bezel and strap shaved off 3 grams, making it even lighter!
Thanks again, Kevio, for the strap changing instructions!
Welp, that was short-lived. The carbon strap, IMO, has a better feeling texture on the wrist than a brand new GW-5000 strap. I liked the smoother feel of the carbon strap's inner texture compared to the much more rubbery feel of the 5000. I decided to go for a compromise look by forgoing the jelly bezel and keeping the 5610 bezel.
It's a little weird looking, but I like it LOL
