The Genesis X1 will be available with either a rubber strap or leather strap each with corresponding color accents. In this case, I was able to test out the rubber strap version and was pleased overall with the design and comfort. The watch is designed with 24mm lugs so at least in the case of the rubber strap I found it to be quite substantial measuring around 6mm thick near the lugs and tapering to around 3mm at buckle. Keep in mind the rubber strap is made of silicon so it will collect a touch of lint so just be prepared to wipe it down from time to time. My photographs should show you what to expect in this area. As with most silicon rubber straps, it is quite soft and comfortable on the wrist. One of the great design aspects of the rubber strap is the length. Again, so many companies just fall short with the strap, no pun intended, as it seems the Genesis X1 strap right out of the box will fit wrists probably approaching 9 inches or more allowing for some strap to rest under at least one of keepers. I hope the leather strap provides the same length that is provided by the silicon option.
If you are looking for a sports watch with a lot of flair and quality specifications, then definitely check out what LIV Watches has to offer. Besides all the quality specifications covered above, remember this is a Swiss Made final product, which just seems to garner an added amount of respect. Overall the watch has a significant feel to it unlike many fashion watches seen in the marketplace. It is becoming harder all the time to find a Swiss Made watch, at an introductory price under $400 USD, especially when the production is limited. LIV also goes a step further by providing a little piece of mind backing their product with a lengthy 5-year warranty. I would like to thank Chaz and his staff for working with WatchReport.com on arranging the review of the Genesis X1 prototype. I would also like to thank each of you for reading and look forward to your thoughts and comments. Stayed tuned as I hope to have a final production Genesis X1 in a few months and plan on following up with a short video to go over the enhancements from prototype to production.
