When I was browsing Amazon, I came across this strap. It says it's silicone, but it doesn't look like it in the pics. Also, in the description it says it's TPU rubber and dust-proof. So, I decided to give it a try.

Here is the Amazon link.

The strap came in two days ago.

I'm glad it's indeed not silicone as I expected.

It's just a bit on the stiff side, which some find uncomfortable. But, you can put it in a mug of boiling water and let it cool to make it more rounded and reduce the breaking in time like I did.

Although I haven't handled the Uncle Seiko tropic strap, by reading the Uncle Seiko tropic strap review on wus and watching some videos on YouTube, it sounds like pretty much identical to the Uncle Seiko one but the buckle.

Also, I have to mention the buckle tends to sit upward, so I replaced it with a slightly beefier buckle I have.

Here is a wrist shot. Overall, I'm pretty happy with it. I think it's worth $18.
