While I do like the leather bands on my new LG Watch Urbane, I was really intrigued by the fact that the watch itself supports standard 22mm watch bands. Plus, I wanted to have something unique and make my new watch customized, just like my phone with a custom ROM.
Well, I ordered a 22mm metal watch band on Amazon and link removal tool (to re-size the band) with no knowledge of modding a watch except for my common sense. I usually go to my local watch repair shop but since it had closed down and there are not many watch repair shops around these days, I decided to do it all myself. Best of all, it only took me 5 minutes! I am sure many of you know how to do this already but for those who don’t, here’s some photos I took while I did mine.
You will need:
– Watch band link removal tool – I used this one here.
Step 1. Take the existing watch band off. Take a flat screwdriver and pull the watch bands off. (You should actually use a spring bar tool, I found out after replacing my watch band.)
Step 2. Once the existing watch bands have been removed, insert the spring bars into the new metal band and re-insert it into your watch.
Step 3. That’s pretty much it!
It should take no more than 5 minutes to do this.
Step 5. For metal bands, you will probably have to remove links to re-size them. I simply used the Watch Band Link Removal tool.
