Comfort vs style / Australian heat

It gets extremely hot here, humid too. The milanese loop has done very well since April, but it is getting extremely hot now..

I’m sure the sweat electrolytes and salts can’t be doing the band and watch any good, should we rinse them off in tap water or other after a workout?

Going to try this plastic band for a bit – the loop is like metal cotton, breathable yet gets soaked in sweat. Gross, and maybe bad for it.

Once summer is done I can go back to that lovely steel loop.

TLDR

Plastic band – tracksuit/ sneakers. Comfy, but weird people will judge you for wearing them outside training.

Metal loop / leather etc – dress shoes, pants or suit. Can also be comfortable. But not in the Australian climate during heat waves, or exercising.
