You may or may not have arrows inside bracelet. Arrows are pointing the way the pins must come out.
First you have to find out what sort of pins or even screws are used to keep links together.
Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove.
Start with a tiny screwdriver and unscrew one of the screws. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead.
For removing pins the best would be pin removing tool (approx.5GBP on ebay), but it's possible to do the job without it.
Take a hardened steel needle and blunt the sharp end to the approx. size of pin end diameter using any sharpening stone or sandpaper. Get an old towel and fold it to make a soft base for work (like small cusion). As you don't have a special bracelet holder you will need a pair of helping hands to hold the bracelet steady upright. You will need small hammer and pair of flat nose pliers as well.
NOTE: The pins MUST be driven split end out first, not vice versa. Make sure that the grooved pin ends are facing towel, not the needle and hammer!!!
Now place the watch on the folded towel, take that needle and smallest hammer you have and start driving the pin out using light blows. Do Not hit hard, as you will brake the needle, scratch your watch or even injure yourself. Watchmakers are using 45 gram hammer, so, calculate your strength of blows.
After a few blows check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the end is long enough to grab it with pliers, pull the pin out with pliers. When pulling, do NOT turn pliers, as pins tend to brake when twisted. Use firm grip and your strength to pull the pin without twisting.
After shortening the bracelet or adding extra link(s) make sure that the pins go back EXACTLY the same way as they came out- the blunt end first in the hole and the split (grooved) end last. Before doing that check remaining pins in bracelet to make sure that you put them back from the right side of bracelet.
It is recommended to use plastic hammer to drive pins back in or you will scratch or damage bracelet. If plastic hammer is not available use an old toothbrush handle (or some plastic item) as an absorber. Simply put pin into the hole as deep as you can with your fingers, put the toothbrush handle on split pin end and hit handle, not the pin.
Make sure that pin ends are flush with bracelet. If needed- hit few more times.
If you do not want to do it yourself, any jeweler will do it in a matter of few minutes.
Don't forget to rate, please.

I just looked at the watch band link more closely and figured out how to remove the links. Pretty engenious link attachment arrangement!
I thought there would be something in the watch manual about band adjustment, but there wasn't. I guess it is not something a "normal" person would be able to do.

In order to remove the links of your Mtg930 watch you will need a couple of tools . It is recommended to have a watch pin pusher and a spring bar remover tool in order to do so. If you do not you can use a small precision flat head screw driver , the size that is usually used to fix glasses or smaller.
First you need to lay a cloth down at a table . Lay the watch on top of cloth to prevent scratching . flip the watch upside down and have a good at the back of the watch bracelet.
If you look carefully you are going to see notches on the back of each link with an arrow pointing in. This is where the spring bars are accessible and can be pushed in to remove the link.
You need to place your spring bar remover, pin pusher or precision screw drive in the notch against the edge.
Mean while push the opposite side of the watch link up so you can see the most of the spring bar inside the notch.
The spring bar is going to look like a pink with a notch on the the top then gets smaller. As shown below on the left side of the picture. If you are looking at the notch on the spring bar, that is where you need to get our tool ontop of . So you can push down the spring bar.
Once you push down on that notch on the spring bar the link will be able to slip out . Without a spring bar remover it will be more difficult and you will need to be patient as you try to work your flat head screw driver into the notch and be able to push down . Once the pin is push down you need to pull the link from the rest of the bracelet.
Do not be surprised to take anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes if you have no experience and not have a spring bar remover.
Once you removed all the links you desire , You will need to put the spring bars back into the links and close the watch bracelet up.
The easiest way is to slip spring bar into middle of link. Bring the other end of the bracelet over so it the bottom covers the other link with the spring bar head out. Push the spring bar down with your tool as you slide the links back together.
