Glowing wristband will glow in dark after absorbing light come from sunshine or lamps. It glows green, blue or red yet the wristband color will not be same as glowing. The wristband color of glowing can be normally white, green, blue, red, yellow, pink and purple, but it must be light enough otherwise glowing will be hard to release.
