Trion:Z Wristband – Old and New

C. Knight / krider

I have been wearing a Trion:Z wristband for a number of years now. And it was showing on the poor current wristband! I had a colour palette metal bracelet in Titanium colour (sadly a colour that is no longer available), but the rubber bumpers were becoming split, and I’d scratched the front doing things like kettlebells where I’d forgotten to take it off. Yes it’s that comfortable ๐Ÿ™‚

I do have one of the more expensive bands for smarter occasions, but find that slightly heavy for daily wear. And as I use a computer daily I found the larger band was catching when I was using the trackpad and/or magic mouse. The lighter/smaller bands don’t have this issue.

Trion:Z have recently announced several new versions of their products, and I was very taken with the Head range. Not because it reminds me of my school days through the branded bag I had ๐Ÿ˜‰ but because of the design. I like the simple colours. I also wanted to get a wristband that I could wear swimming and showering. I had done this with the current one with no issue but it was certainly a factor in which new on I purchased too.

I took the plunge and ordered the new one…

I’ve been wearing this one for about a fortnight now, and whilst initially it was a bit of a change, I’ve got used to it very quickly and am more than happy with it. I’ve also had no reoccurrence of any RSI in my arm, which I can get very easily without a wristband (based on experimental evidence), and my recovery from doing silly things with kettlebells is as good (or bad ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) as it was with the old wristband.

This gallery shows the state of the old one, and few shots of the new one.

You can see where the band, despite being the smallest Trion:Z offer, is a little large for me. I was worried about that gap at first, but it seems fine and hasn’t caught on things. A benefit to the metal bands is that they can be shaped to be even smaller if need be. This band hangs loose, but is fine. It does sometimes turn round so the magnets are on the underside of my wrist but that also feels comfortable. I’ll be able to test out the swimming aspect of it soon, but being silicon I’m sure it will be fine.

All in all I’m pleased with this replacement band. If it lasts as long as the old one I can have no complaints either ๐Ÿ™‚
