    I only dive wet with a 3mm suit or a 7mm suit (with a 5mm glove). I sized the loops so it would work for both. It would work without a wetsuit, though a bit loose.

    What's wrong with velcro? Many bcd's use a velcro strap to hold the tank on. My wife's zeagle zena is one such bcd. Never had any problems. If it can hold a scuba tank, surely it's sufficient for a little watch?

    The Zena doesn't have cam bands?

    the holes where pins go are two think, like 2mm maybe. no bungee can get there.

    and the space between pins and the body of the computer is also pretty small... and i think if you thread bungee between it will cause preasure on pins and they can break.

    scuba bank is hold not by velcro, but by buckle! :) where you put pressure to close it. velcro there is just to keep free end of the cam band. i have never seen velcro cam bands in my life. all cambands usually have standart design buckle, tho there can be plastic or steel one, but the same design: you thread the band throw it and than apply pressure to close it.

    the main disadvantage of velcro looses is that it looses its sticky properties when wet. even such wide velcro as on cam bands unfastens when wet. also with time it frazzles and becomes pretty loose even dry.

    so it is a very bad choice for wrist band for DC. the only apply for velcro in wrist band - is put some to fix the loose and of the band when you fasten it in the buckle.

    Here's a mess, but it's adjustable for everywhere and velcro stuck on back for general grippage

    When it's on a forearm there is only the two inches of bungee, in the foreground until the knot, that protrudes ish
    Because the bungee is bigger than the fastenings, and wound through them, there is friction holding it in position
    whether bare wrist wetsuit drysuit position on arm blah blah blah

    can you see the melted knots at the bottom that haven't let go

    the reason for all the excess bungee and knot at the top is currently it's pulled tight residing on a console

    150 dives ish of bungee perdix maltreatment

    I have been scouring the internet looking for a replacement for the Teric band. Hopefully this helps someone else. Narked at 90 is offering an updated bungee adapter. I have ordered one, I will report back with results.

    What is updated?

    Link?

    I have a N@90 bungee adapter on my Teric. I just looked at the N@90 website and the only Teric bungee adapter I see looks like the exact some one I got months ago.
