    Replacement Strap for the Gym

    The default strap on my g-shock gets pretty sweaty/wet when working out. What replacement straps would you guys recommend?

    Get something else, i not sure about whole adapter thing but getting something like Timex Ironman will cost less than adaptros and strap.
    Ironman straps have domed cross section and it really helps when you sweat. Also buckle is very comfortable and not bothering you when pressed against wrist.
    You can get something perforated.
    Another way to go is more rigid straps which make watch "hover" over the wrist like Casio GW500A which i would say among exemplary watches for hot weather.

    Frankly sport watches have totally different straps: holes are closer, shape of the hole is different, buckle design is different and shape is different.
    That in case manufacturer was actually thinking about comfort.
    It should be special!

    Any watch strap of any material is going to get wet and sweaty when you're wet and sweaty.

    I’d get another watch for the gym that you can sling on a Nato then when it gets too stinky you can take it off and put it in the wash.

    A resin or metal strap will never get stinky and doesn't absorb and hold water.

    That said, I do like NATOs a lot.

    I use my beater square because my bracelet models have gotten scratched on plate, dumb bells etc
    I don't do fabric or NATO straps and suggest any resin model you consider expendable. That's because I see a crystal fail in my future, maybe

    The default resin straps are really good. You could get a spare one or two and replace should they get ugly with time. rubber and steel bracelets are also fine.

    I would simply stay away from canvas stuff (perlon, nato, etc.) since they are harder to clean and take too long to dry.
