    Resin straps can last much longer than 1-2 years. I have resin straps older than 10 years by far that are just fine. It depends on how frequently you wear it and what you're doing while wearing it.

    10 years ???? I was speaking for durability if you wear it everyday, without doing agressive activity with it, just hiking but sweating when it is too hot. Maybe sweat can damage the strap more... If the strap lasts 5 years wearing it everyday day, it will be enough for me, at this time I will have another watch :)

    Thanks.
    My first G-Shock was one of the first Aviator models, the GW-2000. It is about 8 years old now and my dad is wearing it almost every day since I got my Rangaman, which is 4 years old now.
    Both the GW-2000 and the GW-9400 straps are just fine after having been in contact with lots of sweat, sand, salt water, sunscreen, shampoo, mud and all the other stuff one can encounter when wearing it every day.
    The GW-2000 does show it has been used, but no cracks, weak spots or whatsoever.
    I did, and still do, always take my watches of with care to not bend the strap to its limits. This greatly increases its lifespan I believe.

    I have a Garmin Forerunner 935 as well, which has a much softer and more flexible strap. Although it is comfortable for sporting activities, it already shows much more wear than both my G-Shocks after just one year.

    Thanks ! My Suunto sapphire had its strap torn up after 1.5 year and I took care of it, never taking the shower with it, cleaning it after sport and never using it in salt water. It was nearly perfect when you look at the strap but it torn up. I was affraid it could me the same with the g-shock (since I have never had one with resin strap), byt now I know there is no reason of being affraid.

    Actually this is a carbon fiber resin strap.
    It will last.

    Yes, the silicone straps on Suuntos and Garmins are much less durable. I have replaced 2 straps on my Fenix in 1 year (to be fair, I accidentally cut one of them when I scraped against a sharp metal thing). I have worked on cars and scraped my G Shock resin straps on many things and have never torn them.
    The resin strap may rot in 15-20 years, but a Bluetooth watch will not be useable by then anyway.
