I Will Run For Food

I am completely drooling over the new Garmin 620. I love the redesign and the new features. Then I looked at the price. Holy hell! I think I’ll be waiting awhile before I buy it.

I am currently using the 610. It still works great, however, the watch back has become corroded over the years from my sweat (nasty!). It’s starting to discolor my skin and leaving a small rash behind. Any suggestions on how to fix/prevent that from happening? I probably need to start wearing a wristband underneath, but am open to other ideas.
