Never Forget Your Road ID Again
Back when I reviewed the Wrist ID Elite, I talked about how great of product it is. I really enjoyed the look and overall fit of this Road ID. The one drawback I had, was that it wasn’t comfortable enough and small enough to wear all the time. And what would inevitably happen is that I would go out on my bike or run and then realize that I had left my Road ID at home. This was not a good thing, because a Road ID can’t help you if you don’t wear it.
Enter the Wrist ID Slim. I was thrilled when I saw this product and even more thrilled when I got mine ordered and it arrived so I could test it out.
It’s as slim and as light as a Livestrong bracelet. I have thus far been able to wear it 24/7 without even thinking about. I’ve worn it to bed, to work, and even in the pool swimming. I don’t experience any “wrist sweat” or itching like I would occasionally with the Wrist ID Elite. I also like that I can wear it comfortably on the same wrist as my Garmin Forerunner 305.
The Wrist ID Slim has a great design and looks really sleek. The only thing I don’t like is that Road ID decided to imprint their logo on two different places on the wrist band. With the Wrist ID Elite, they didn’t do this and it looks more classy. I don’t know why they decided to on the slim version, but it is only noticeable up close.
They have up to 8 different color bracelets and you can buy multiple colors and then switch out your name plate to have your wrist band match your kit, mood, or wardrobe. (Although I did have to use a pair of Tweezers to switch out the plate – it isn’t the quickest or easiest process.)
The only negative of this bracelet is that I already have a pretty bad scratch on the ID plate. Because I’ve been wearing it all day, I’m not sure wear it was or what exactly caused this. This makes me a bit concerned that it may not hold up long-term, but I’ll keep wearing it and post an update. I’m not sure if they used a cheaper or less durable steel on the Slim version, but I didn’t have this happen with the Wrist ID Elite, but then I wasn’t wearing the Wrist ID Elite all day either. It’s a trade-off.
The Bottom Line ~
The Wrist ID Slim is a great option for Endurance Athletes that forget to put their Road ID on – like me. It’s a very light, very slim, very comfortable bracelet. It’s looks very athletic and can be worn 24/7 without any bother. The band is available in 8 colors and can be changed with a bit of work. At $15.99 it’s a great price and Road ID’s ordering processing and deliver is easy and fast. I do have a few concerns about the durability of the ID plate as it got a pretty bad scratch after 2 weeks, but I will continue to wear it and provide additional updates in the future.
