I recently bought the Suunto Rubber Watch Strap Kit as a replacement for a plastic bodied X6HR. The original strap for the X6HR is no longer available and although the supplied product is different in design it fits perfectly. Two new stainless steel pins are supplied with the kit and it can be a little bit fiddly attaching the new strap however it can be done at home using a very small jewellers screwdriver (check out uTube and there is a video of someone showing how it is done). Alternatively I would imagine any watch repairer would fit it for a minimum charge - it literally takes seconds. The new strap has given a facelift to my watch and I think I prefer it to the original - the most noticeable difference is that the new strap is more perforated which makes it lighter and the watch feels less sweaty on my wrist due to the increased air flow through the perforations. In summary, an improved replacement product at a reasonable price.
I have many Suunto products and have had this particular watch (S6) for nearly a decade. It served me well through skiing, wake boarding, swimming, scuba, sailing and all manner of other activities, but finally the strap gave up. This product is a fine replacement for the original, speedily delivered and easy to fit. Thanks very much!
The new Suunto Whatch Strap replaced my old one (original 10yrs was broken). The new design is better (softer strap, better fit, improved locking mechanism).
The order from Facewest in UK to Sweden was without any problem at all. Easy website for orders, safe online payment and swift transport.
The postman distributed the small package straight to my mailbox at my home address.
Package also contained a return sheet (in case of any damage).
I do not know if the strap is easy to attach to the watch (maybe it is?), but I went to my local watch dealer (has more experience and better tools for small gadgets) and he replaced the strap for a small fee the same day.
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.
