    You don't really want to swim with it for the following reasons. The sport band (silicon) holds the watch in the correct location better than the woven nylon band, while the sport band can be dried immediately the woven nylon band takes a couple of hours to dry, and the woven nylon band picks up the odor from the pool water. I unintentionally used it in the pool because I forgot to change to the sport band before going to the pool. Even though the pool I swim in is a "salt" water pool the band still has the pool odor and I even washed it with a swim suit wash that helps remove odor.
