The cotton of the ActionBand is meant to keep the Apple Watch tight on the wrist for heart rate measurements, and it also is sweat absorbent. It is made with lycra, and Twelve South says that it can be worn at the wrist or the forearm.

I've always found sweat wrist bands impractical. The last thing I need when I'm already hot is a warm wrist band to make me even hotter.

It's not sweat free. It is made of cotton. It is going to absorb sweat and any other moisture. A sport loop is much better. This is a solution looking for a problem.

Oh my. The design is unfortunate looking (being kind) and it will be an absolute pain to wash and dry.
