With the watch on your wrist, check to see how many links need to be removed from your watch. Your watch should fit comfortably on your wrist. Remove the extra links with your paper clip or push pin.To remove the links from your watch, press on the small pins with your tool that are holding the links in place. The watch band should now separate allowing the pin to become free, and you can now remove the pins first and then the links one at a time until you have removed the desired amount of links. Reattach the watch band when you are done removing the links. To reattach the watch band to your watch, simply fit the end links into each other. To complete the resizing, use your push pin to re-insert a joining pin.
Wrap the watch band around your wrist to determine how many links need to be removed for the watch to fit properly.
Place the watch face-down on a flat surface.
Look on the back of the watch band. You will find an arrow that indicates which direction you should push the pins to remove the links.
Find the point at which the extra links need to be removed for your watch to fit your wrist. Using a 1 mm flathead screwdriver (or the edge of one side of a pair of tweezers), push the pins in the direction indicated by the arrows.
Finish removing the pins with your pliers.
Keep the extra links in case you ever need extra room on your watch band.
My experience with Fossil has been poor customer service support for the items they sell. I could even get a flat normal crystal replaced. You can call and wait for customer service. You can also buy another one of the same model on Ebay and use the proper tools to cannibalize the links from another of the same model. You will need pin pusher tools to remove the links and replace them. Do a Google search on watch link removal to learn how this is done.
you would have to either have custom links made or buy a whole new band to be made the links pop out by pins and then shortened placed this way back together
but if you dont have extra links buying longer band is your better sollution cause creating a link or 2 to fits can be costly
