I just replaced the band on a women's ironman watch, so I know it is tricky, but can be done. First remove the old band using a small flat blade screwdriver and determine that the spring bars that came with the new band are the right size by comparing with the old ones. My new ones were too large. Then, use a pen to make marks on the back of the watch case in alignment with the spring pin holes . Put a spring pin into the band and position the band on the watch the way it will be attached, with the pin just above the marks. Use the small flat blade screwdriver to insert one of the spring bars into its hole and align the other side of the spring bar with its mark on the case. Compress the spring bar and slide it down until it roughly aligns with its hole, then, push the band sideways toward the hole and wiggle the band until the pin seats. Apparently the hole alignment is very tight and, without that last step, the pin simply will not seat. After spending a lot of time with the first strap, locating the spring pin hole by trial and error, I used a magnifying light for the second strap to allow me to see the spring bar hole, making the process a lot faster.

My adidas watchband is broken where do I can get the new one


I've never seen an adidas watch, but I'm assuming it has springbars like just about every other wristwatch does. Find a millimeter ruler, and measure the gap where the springbars hold the band to the watch--it should be somewhere between 14-22mm, depending on the watch. That will tell you what SIZE to buy, because bands are sold by width--12, 14, 16, 18, etc. Any store that sells watchbands, can find you one that will fit your watch; and some of them will even replace it for you--free of charge!

Watchband replacements?


On ebay you will be able to find the correct Casio band for your watch. There are 2 or 3 dealers that sell them but a little advice....don't buy the cheap ones! Buy ONLY the Casio replacement band and it will fit perfectly. You will need the spring bar tool to remove the pins that hold the band to the case. Don't try to install or remove the band without one....it will gouge the case at the pin stems and you will not be happy. They are cheap and worth every penny. Casio.com can also direct you to their watch bands. Hope this helps you and good luck!

Where can i get a replacement watch band for my shark x freestyle watch? thanks.


Here is the link to their customer service page:
http://www.freestyleusa.com/contact.php

Call the Warranty/Parts and Repairs number on the left and they should be able to send you a new band to take to a jeweler to replace, or you can send it to them and they will fix it for you (with 4-6 week turnaround, however).  I got a 75003 watchband replaced, but I imagine you can get every band replaced.
