We can make sure that you will find perfectly watch band to fit your timepieces
Step 1: Determine lug width by one of the following
- Check for markings on the underside of your current band.
- Measure the width using a metric ruler
- Smart watch owners can check our table of Common Smart Watch Lug Widths.
- Search online for the specs of your watch make/model.
Step 2: Buy bands to fit lug width
- If your watch has an odd sized lug, and you prefer a NATO Style strap, the next size up will squeeze in just fine. If you’re crafty, you can alsoremove the spring bars from a quick release band and reinsert your original odd sized spring bars. Again, 1mm wider is typically the way to go.
- If you have a smart watch and like to use the heart rate monitor, do not go with the NATO style strap as it will block the heart rate monitor. Opt for aquick release band instead.
Step 3: Switch it up!
Simply insert one end of the spring bar into the lug and then slide the quick release lever with your finger
Both the Nylon Nato Style and Leather NATO Style straps are available in two lengths. The ‘standard’ length (10″) fits wrists from 5″ to 7 1/2″ in circumference and is available in widths of 18mm, 20mm and 22mm. The ‘long’ version (11″) generally fits wrists from 6″ to 8 1/2″ and is available in 20mm, 22mm and 24mm widths. Those with wrists under 7″ typically prefer the ‘standard’ length band and those with wrists over 7 1/4″ typically prefer the ‘long’ band. If your strap is initially too long, see below for tips on adjusting length.
Adjusting NATO Style Strap Length:
If your NATO Style watch strap is initially longer than desired, fold the free end neatly back into the keeper loop or cut to desired length. If trimmed, expose the cut end to the flame of a match or lighter to avoid fraying. If you still encounter a fit related issue after, you can also take us up on our money back guarantee!.
