How to change links in relic watch

Watch links are usually either pin type or screws. If you look at the side of each link where it connects to the next link you will be able to tell as a screw has a slot and a pin doesn't. It's most likely a pin and in that case, the cheap way to do it is by using a standard cork board push pin. If it's too difficult to do by hand, use a small hammer. If that doesn't work take it to a mall jeweler and have them do it for you. Usually charge $10. Ideally, there a is a special tool to remove link pins and you can get them online for cheap.
The screw types just require a really tiny precision screwdriver.

I have been given a casio wave ceptor wvq 570 as a present. Unfortunately the plastic strap keeps detaching itself, by pulling the strap pin out. The strap seems undamaged but has a lot of play round the...

If the pin keeps coming out, then it seems likely that it is bent.

This can happen if the watch is fastened very tightly and your hand bends back until it strains the pin.

I suggest that you go to a jeweler and have a new one fitted.

Connect metal strap to watch

If it brok at the hinge where the strap connects to the watch itself, then you might just need to replace the clip that slides in. Its a little metal tube with a spring in it. You should be able to find them at any retail shop. If all else fails, take it to a shop or jeweler.

I would like to adjust my Pulsur watch strap but I cannot push those tiny screws on the strap

To do that you need a hardened steel pin and small hammer. Use that pin as a chisel and drive the bracelet pins out. Split pin end must come out first. When driving pins back in- blunt end goes in first and split end last.
You can make driving pin from hardened needle by blunting the pointed end.
