    Loose or tight?

    OK, I just got done reading the "why do people look down on G-shocks?" thread. Wow, some great responses and good thoughts. I was reading another forum a couple of days ago and someone asked about rashes with their Casio. Some started discussing wearing their watches loose or tight.
    So I'll pose the question:
    "Do you wear it loose or tight?"
    Personally I like mine a bit loose. I'm not claustrophobic, but it bugs me when it's too tight and doesn't move at all. My wrist size will change during the day and occ. I'll find myself tightening it, only to loosen it later (wishing there was another hole between) but I wanted to see where everyone sits.

    I definitely don't wear them tight. But not so loose that the watch can turn on my wrist.

    I also often wish there was a hole in the strap, right between two existing holes, so I've taken to enlarging existing holes to make the watch more comfortable.

    I wear heavier models ( eg Frogman ) firm and light models ( eg dw-5600e ) fashionably relaxed.

    5600 loose- looks and feels good that way.
    2500 loose- doesn't wrap around my wrist as well since the band doesn't curve around like the 5600 does.

    Slightly loose, but so that it maintains position.

    I think getting a rash is a different issue. A lot of people have allergies to rubber etc. You can overcome allergies by using therapies like EFT (which is largely dyi).
