Subject: RE: De-clutter & Fitness in a Pandemic: 2021
Some weeks ago I ordered a velcro closing band that would hold my fitness tracker on my ankle. This is because when mowing or dog walking my hands don't swing back and forth as they do when you're walking with free hands. The fitness tracker relies on the movement to count steps, so I have been tucking my watch into my sock and hoping to not drop it out (short ankle socks) or run it through the laundry. The ordered band was cheap (they all were) and was a piece of crap.

This morning I pulled out a roll of industrial velcro (military, I think - it came from my ex who was in the Army and later has been known to shop at Army/Navy stores) and the remains of a t-shirt I disassembled after making t-shirt yarn for masks. I puttered with length and design and ended up with a tube of t-shirt fabric attached to the fuzzy strip of velcro and a piece of the hook part sewn onto one end. I slide the watch into the cotton and wrap this thing around my ankle. Comfortable and a much better design than the crap from Amazon. I'll write a suitably scathing review soon. :)
