Hi, I am a fan of Casio digital watches but I am not a huge fan of the resin watch bands that come with them. I understand part of the rationale is to keep the watches affordable (which is a good thing). However (this is personal opinion of course), most of the resin bands I look at on G-shocks and other Casio make the the watch look unnecessarily cheap (there are a few exceptions).
Some Casio models are relatively easy to replace the band with something better (PAW2000 for example that takes a standard 22mm band) others are not.
Just curious how you all feel about it. I don't intend to insult anyone who loves the resin bands, one thing I know is key on these forums is "to each their own" and there are no absolutes when it comes to personal taste.
But, going from the stock resin band on the PAW2000 and replacing it with a better quality better band (without a bunch of writing on it) I feel has made the watch look more substantial and I find it more comfortable to wear. I think Casio could improve the watch bands on many of their watches without adding too much cost. There are a few models with other kinds of bands but those seem rare.
The only positive I personally feel about the resin bands is they are pretty durable and you don't care what happens to them. So if your watch is mainly for really hard use I could see why you might not care.
Just curious how my fellow Casio / G-shock lovers feel about this question.
