    Good afternoon happy Shearwater owners.
    Please don't destroy me for this:
    I just used my stimulus check to get a blue bezel Teric and (coming from an Oceanic Atom) am just completely floored by the capabilities of the device.
    It's like a night and day difference in ability and ease of use.

    I am researching the possibility of adding a black titanium strap to it, and see if I like the looks of it.
    Kind of like the Garmin Descent with the titanium band:
    Garmin Descentâ„¢ MK1 | Dive Computer | Dive Watch
    Has anyone gone down that road with any luck?
    I've found several "straight pin" 22MM straps online, but I'm not convinced that it would actually work, as most are a push pin mechanism. Unfortunately it doesn't look like I'll be entering a jewelry store here in NYC anytime soon, so I was hoping there was someone here (or at Shearwater) that has done any research on this.

    I fully understand that this is a dive computer, and have no interest of wearing it around town other then on a dive vacation, but I think it's a beautiful device that could use a nice black titanium band to complete the look.

    Thanks in advance,
    Kees

    Right? And the remaining $100 went to my favorite dive shop employees in Cozumel.
    I bought a $55 knock off of the Garmin titanium band btw. It fits well and doesn't seem to throw off the compass, so I'm hopeful it's real titanium.

    Who is your favorite shop in Cozumel? I've sent money down as well.

    Tres Pelicanos. It seemed like a good way for money that I didn't need to be used.

    We use Dive Paradise and stay at Hotel Cozumel. Please roll by JP Morgan's Metrotech office and waive to my co-workers after they return.

    Where do you stay?
