This is the second time I have had to replace the strap on my Suunto X6. On the earlier occasion, I was unable to obtain the correct strap and made do with a similar-but-not-perfect-fitting strap. This latest strap fits perfectly although I had to cut off the old strap and destroy the pins in the process! No big deal as new pins are supplied with the strap. Pity I fastened the buckle part onto the wrong side of the watch! No matter, I can still fasten the strap but just need to think about it! Delighted with my purchase.
Great service from Facewest, arrived pronto
Quick delivery, good staff. Good product
I've got an X6HR. This strap fitted well. Better than the original with less chance of little black strap holder breaking. Really pleased with the product and service!
Excellent service and product just the job
I've used my Sunnto T6 for a number of years now and the original strap finally gave up after significant use. The watch strap kit is a great replacement!. A little fiddly to fit initially, but that was mainly down to me. Once fitted it felt secure and robust and should last a good number of years.
I needed a replacement strap that would specifically fit the moulding of the X6HR, and this is now the only one I can find. The rubber feels robust though I am concerned that the design may not be as robust as the original design, we will have to wait and see.
The strap is great. Exactly as the original I had and has breathed new life into my beloved watch.
But what stood out more for me, was the fantastic customer service. I ordered the wrong strap, despite the clear advice on their website how to select the correct one. After it had arrived and didn't fit my watch I contacted Facewest. They swapped it for the right strap immediately. No quibbles, no fuss, no arguments.
A lot of companies talk a good talk about customer service, but these guys really mean it.
This is a slightly different design from my original and better in my opinion. Still the same good quality rubber but now has a better retaining mechanism for the loose end of the strap.
After a considerable amount of research, I recently bought the Suunto T6D watch and in passing would say that I am delighted with it and with the service provided by Facewest, from whom I bought it. Before buying it, I noticed that numerous reviewers commented on the apparent weakens of the strap and its tendency to split after a relatively short period of use. The Watch being being "discontinued" and now no longer available from Suunto, I took the opportunity, shortly after buying the watch, to buy this "Strap Kit" so that to I had a spare available should I need it; however, I have not yet had occasion to use it. However, since this Kit is identical to the strap fitted to the Watch and since that one has so far shown no signs of wear or weakness, I see no reason why this identical strap should not perform equally well. Consequently, although I have yet to use the Strap Kit in question, it seems to me that, if not not misused or subjected to excessive wear, it is likely to last as long as any strap of its kind. It also, I think, enhances the appearance of the watch. On the downside, I would just say that, I am not a great fan of rubberised straps in general and although this one probably is no less comfortable than most straps of this type, I do however find it rather uncomfortable after wearing it for any prolonged period. For that rather subjective reason alone, I have therefore marked it down from 4 to 3 stars.
