Wrap/circle the bandage below the tracker a few times to keep it from sliding down your arm.

I wear my flex in the hot tub. That thing can handle anything. 2. level 1. gnarsed. 4 years ago. i play basketball with it and see a bunch of other people do it too. it doesn't seem to do a great job of measuring the heart rate. you can also whack people with it unintentionally. 2. level 1.

I have wondered the same thing. I play ball about 3/4 times a week. I usually use a fitbit to track steps. I am a little worried the watch will get in the way. The fitbit tends to get pulled off from time to time. I will definitely give it a go with the apple watch though.-----
