    How often do you guys take this thing off? That, or how and how often do you clean it? Do you wear it as tight as it'll sit sometimes, or a little looser than that?
    I'm starting to find that I actually have to pay attention to things like these after wearing the band for a month. Got a little bit of skin irritation from wearing the band 22 hours a day as tight as it'll go and not really cleaning the band much.
    Since then, I've eased off the tightness a bit on the band by one notch. I've also been getting in the habit of just taking the band off and giving my arm a break when I know I'll be sitting at a desk for awhile. I just turn my phone's ringer back up (my phone is otherwise silent when I have the band on). That, and cleaning the unit with alcohol every day or two.

    How have you guys been getting on?

    I take mine off to go to bed now - got bored of the sleep tracking thing. I know my kids don't let me sleep enough!

    Put back on once i've showered in a morning and stays on. Can't think i actually notice it's there, comfort wise. I wear mine screen down though [inside of wrist].

    Not had to clean it tbh as don't do any sweaty workouts - i use it for the notifications and the very basic guided workouts.

    I take mine off for an hour or two to charge after I get up in the morning. Clean it when I think of it, and wear it tighter when working out, looser for normal wear. So far so good.

    I ware it 24/7, take it off when at the computer to charge [has never gone below 80%], wear it tight for workouts face down, wear it face up normally loose clean it every day with clean water and than alcohol no signs of distress or comfort after 4 months. biggest thing is cleanliness.

    Same routine to a point. I use slightly moistened cotton swab to clean charger and HRM ports about once a week when I notice accumulation due to workouts and wrist sweating. I always wear mine face down - it makes it significantly easier to read that loooong horizontal display and does not get in a way when typing as I always raise my wrists off desk when typing.
