    Thank you in advance for an answer.
    I would make sure he can wear something, to start with.
    My son wears 24x7 a GLS-5600CL-3.
    Well, nearly 24x7 because they force him to leave it in the locker when practicing Taekwondo.
    He is not allowed to wear anything on his wrists or neck.

    Also, seems like an official event:

    Really amazing that the watch is so tough.

    Despite the toughness, mine got a small mark when I scratched it by accident with the wall when in bed one of the past nights.
    Not a big thing and, luckily with age I stopped caring that much about things like this and just accept them as part of the use|experience of the device.

    It has indeed a nice story behind so it makes the watch now unique to my eyes

    So far he has worn dw 5600hr 1dr. But I can understand that he is now mainly the first Garmin Instinct wears.

    Iím surprised that it canít be scrubbed off, doesnít look like a deep scratch.

    Could you image if you can a SS bezel colored black? Now that would have left a mark.

    I tried to clean it without really applying much pressure and didn't go away.

    Maybe it does if I "polish" it but, didn't try that.
    I may at one point.

    One thing I really like about most G-Shocks is that their resin coverings can usually be easily replaced. Should a G-Shock get beaten up too badly, a new set of parts makes the watch look brand new again. My CASIO GW-5000's resin bezel and strap have been replaced once. I wonder if the case of the Instinct has similarly replaceable parts besides the strap.

    I hate to say it but I reckon these are disposable. I can't see anyway to open them up to replace the battery when it dies. I guess I just set the challenge

    Ah darn. It makes sense from a business strategy standpoint. I guess like Apple and most smartwatch companies, Garmin has designed these to be obsolete within a few years until the next iteration is released.

    I will hopefully still enjoy mine to heck. I get mine by Tuesday or Wednesday next week. I see this Garmin as a neat, durable tech watch that I can use for working out.

    I have just bought one (still waiting for delivery).
    As for the battery, I hope Garmin will replace it for a fee, when it will die.

    https://support.garmin.com/en-US/?fa...PH7tc5v4lwEST9

    We will see if they will honour that. In any case, how many cycles a battery has? 500? Charge it once a week, and that's 10 years.
