Will the band carry any ID info printed on it so we can take a picture of it in case it gets lost like we currently do with tickets ...

Somehow I fee like the bands will be MORE anonymous than current media of tickets and room keys.

How sensitive will these bands be? Remember when swipe cards first came out, people were being charged when they walked past a sensor.
If the sensitivity of these things is anything like the way the current room keys work then this won't be an issue. Last Nov we stayed at SSR and it had those new locks where you just held your card up to the lock. I wear a lanyard and made sure I had my room key placed on the outer edge of the little plastic card holder...it would NOT work unless I took it out of the plastic holder and actually placed the card against the lock. Now HOW in the world plastic that is less than one mil thick can stop the signal from reading I don't know but after that experience I wouldn't be worried at all using one of these wristbands.

As for AP holders (which I am), I imagine they will give you a new wristband on each trip. Any information that needed to be transferred could be carried over quite easily.
