Most expandable watch bands aren't sizable. IF it is sizable you will be able to tell when you stretch the bracelet out. If it looks like you can unlatch the links when you stretch it out then you might be in luck, but like I said, most are not sizable.

SOURCE: shorten watch band

For this you will need a pair of fine tweezers, a small flat blade screw driver and a lot of patience.

Determine how many links you need to take out by pinching the band while it is on the wrist. Once you know how many you are ready to remove the links.
spread the band and you will see that the very end of the links is tabbed. Be careful and fold down the end of the link with your small screw driver. Be careful not to bend anything. You will then need to turn the band over and bend down the tab of the link on the opposite side but right beside the first tab you bent down. Now you will see how the band is held together. If you look into the two tabs you just bent down you will see a small peice of metal connecting the two links. This is a staple. Pull the staple out with your tweezers.
Now go to the exact opposite side and perform the same task. The band should now be apart where you remove the staples from each side.
Now count down the number of links you want to remove and perform the task again.
*Remember that you must do it the exact same way on each side or the band will not go back together.
Once you have the correct number of links out the band will go back together the same way you took it apart.
When folding down the tabs be sure to use gentle even pressure so you dont over bend them and keep the band from moving freely. I usually find it easiest to use the fla part of the screw driver in a gentle pressing motion.

Remember that this take watch makers and technician a lot of practice. Be patient. If you arent patient or good with very small parts, pop into your local jewlery store for help.

SOURCE: i would like to remove links from my expandable

Can I be honest? These are not easy to do. Ive done hundreds and I hated doing each one. You can try yourself but I would take to the dealer who sold you the watch, or to a local watchmaker. If you still want to do on your own, here is a link to a Speidel band that does a pretty good job with instructions. Best wishes.

My wrist band is coming apart. The area near the display is coming arpart, and the last loop is pulling out if I use that one. My fitbit is not a year old yet.


Fitbit have a warranty of 1 year.

If you still have the receipt and you've had it less than a year then you should be able to send it back for a replacement if its due to normal use.

I bought a Michael Kors watch and need HELP!


Have you thought of changing the band to a leather one?

This would allow you to make holes in the best place to give the correct length for you.

Alternatively you might be able to get an expanding metal type which would solve the problem. This type can also be adjusted for length.

Adjusting the watch band


Without knowing the type of band you have, I can only say that the links in an expand band can be removed to make it smaller. Now adding more links would require that one would need obtain compatible links.
