for style! jk, well I think I've heard it right before if Im not mistaken, its to cover it so no direct sunlight would hit it, also the heat from the sunlight changes the color of the brake fluid, hence why the fluid gets dark????!!!!

It can also be used to stash your bridge toll.

Also ive heard that if the cap leaks the wristband will soak up the fluid to prevent the brake fluid dripping down all over the place ( ex: dripping on the track, or even getting on your tires causing you to slide out)...i have a wrist band on both reserviors, only cost 6 bucks for 2 for some cool designed ones from hot topic, or free if you have some laying around already
