I was looking through my watch list and this was the oldest thread. We’ve come a long way in 4 years...

Lol Dave. And I'm a bit mortified to see that I was balking at paying 10 quid on page 1. :-O Even what I pay now is cheaper than that Stoova thing! :-) G

Just saw the lanyard suggestion a couple of pages back. I would support a red "FETCH" silicon wristband if Lord Fetch thinks it is worth getting a batch made up. Would it be a way to add a bit to the Fetch coffers?

The reasoning for this is that it would be an item that could be worn at events and while running. I enter quite a few races where there are other Fetchies running and I don't know how to find them unless they are wearing a Fetch vest. I don't wear a Fetch vest, as I usually race in my "non-Fetch" running club vest. A wristband could be a really good identifier worn by Fetchies who are willing to be recognised!

Anyway, I've put this into the suggestion box, so if you think it's a good idea, please go and vote "yes"!

Would be even better if it had an ICE contact on it like the park run one does?

I was thinking a relatively inexpensive (but high quality!) standard wristband which might be a bit of a fundraiser.

These are great ideas, but I don't really know what the implications are in terms of the cost of making tailored/individual wristbands and whether Lord Fetch would assess that the take-up among us all would be high enough to make personalisation financially viable.

I have messaged him about this and will report back - although he may well choose to do so first!

I have one of these iceid.co.uk
Obviously Fetch branding might be a little challenging but the advantage to it is that if you have your Garmin (other watches are available), you have the ID
