LG Watch Urbane Metal Band Replacement! [HOWTO]


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:

– New 22mm metal band – I found mine on Amazon here but any 22mm metal band will do, just do a search for “22mm watch band” on Amazon.

– 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.
