Or rather the tape holding it together did. Had to have a hunt around on a track for it. Can see the rest of it dying soon too.
I bought a new watch strap from the Garmin shop (N Sydney) today!
suunto. ditched garmin after my first two died
I think I'm going Suunto. Too many issues with Garmin and customer support admitted they have a limited lifetime.
O-ing - apparently my Forerunner 2010 band can't be replaced
Garmin's are crap (apparently, I've never had one). Go for latest suunto ambit or polar v800. I had a few issues with my ambit 1 but I think they've ironed them out in the new model like lazydave has.
Lazydave what model you have?
Looks like Rebel has a half price sale on now
Suunto ambit 3 was 200$ yesterday at rebel
That's an awesome price, go get one!
I got a heap of suunto hr straps and transmitters if you ever need one. My ambit has been retired.
Yep just ordered Suunto Ambit3 online for $200 at Rebel, all Sydney stores sold out
I also now want one of these, bit fed up with Garmin too (clara is still wearing my old one with the strap taped on..)
Damn, Ambit 3 peak is tempting.
I'm pretty happy that they do a special womens watch with a pink strap
I find having a black strap so masculine
Feel free to pay me a commission jayne ;)
My Garmin strap broke just before New Year. I have managed to join the ends with a ribbon until the $3 replacements arrive via a slow boat from China. Can't use the bike mount until then.
The problem with mine was the strap was connected to the watch so when the strap goes doesn't make the watch waterproof anymore. So I can't take it out in the rain or sweat. The watch lasted about a month post strap breaking.
