One might think that the answer to this question is “For sweaty wrists!” And while there is a bit of humor in that response, you have to take some seriousness in the matter and see that sweat wristbands actually serve a very important purpose in your fitness or physical activity routine.


There are, of course, many different types of wristbands to choose from but we want to ensure you’re well-informed and educated on sweat wristbands before making your purchase. In this article, you’re going to learn everything you need to know about wristbands and their purpose.

Why Wear Sweat Wristbands?

Prevents Your Hands From Being Sweaty/Wet

In the most basic and most practical sense of its purpose, it prevents your palms from being wet and sweaty. This is actually very important in sports, whether you’re playing basketball, tennis, or football.

If you think about just how much your body will sweat when overexerting yourself in such an intense sport where the use of your hands is required, you’ll quickly find out the importance of these bands. Things like swinging your racket with intensity or catching a pass can be impossible when your hands are wet. 


It’s also not uncommon to see gymnasts rocking wristbands as well. A sweaty palm can make for a terrible accident when swinging on the uneven bars.

Easily Wipe Sweat From Face Without Needing a Towel

You’ve probably been to the gym and seen people walking around with a small towel, right? It’s not an uncommon sighting. But people carry these towels around with them to wipe themselves off once their sweating becomes profuse. 


The face is usually the first place people start to experience sweat when they engage in physical activities that raise their heart rate. So, instead of reaching for a towel or making the mistake of leaving it somewhere, you can have your towel sitting right on your wrist. A simple raise of your hand and you’re instantly redirecting your sweat from your face to your wristband.

Wear Them As a Fashion Statement

Denis Rodman’s fashion statement was his hair (among many other things), Horace Grant had his goggles, and Wilt Chamberlain rocked the headband. So even if you’re not working out, you can wear wristbands to make your own statement. At Suddora, you can actually make your own statement by making your own custom sweat wristbands. Maybe you want to put your company logo on there or your initials… But whatever statement you’re trying to make, we can help you say it loud and clear.

Help Regulate Body Temperature

Sweating is your body’s natural reaction to an increased heart rate so allowing a sweat wristband to catch the sweat your body is producing, is actually helping you to regulate your body temp. Water, of course, can and will be most people’s go-to, but when you’re out running, you’re not going to always be able to carry a water bottle around with you… A sweat wristband is going to be your best option in that scenario for regulating your body temperature.

Added Support For Your Wrist

You may not know this but the wrist is comprised of eight small bones called the carpal bones, and also two long bones called the ulna and radius bones. These bones are joined together to form your wrist. Out of your carpal bones, the scaphoid bone is the one most commonly injured. A sweat wristband will provide the added support to protect those bones during rigorous activities. 


But, with that, it’s also notable to mention that these wristbands not only provide support during rigorous activities, but they also provide that needed support during more sedentary activities as well. What you may not realize is that carpal tunnel disease is a condition you can get simply from sitting at a desk and typing all day.

This disease isn’t caused by rigorous activity at all, but the way you position your hand can put a lot of strain on your wrist. A wristband can give your wrist the cushion and support it needs to prevent wrist pain from happening. Now, we can’t really speak about the boredom you may feel from staring and typing at a computer all day, but wristbands can sure provide support for your wrists from it!


At the end of the day, wristbands aren’t merely “sweat catchers”... They do indeed serve multiple purposes that go from active lifestyles to sedentary work environments. We hope this article painted a vivid picture of the purposes and uses of sweat wristbands to help you make a more educated and informed purchase decision.
