Replacing Pebble's wrist band

It's relatively easy to replace the bands on your Pebble. To get the job done you will need a spring bar tool, a replacement watch band that measures 22mm, and, of course, a Pebble smartwatch.

The process

Gently slide the tool in between the watch and the strap. Move the tool toward the center of the watch after you make contact with the spring to dislodge it from the socket.

Remove the spring bar

Carefully remove the spring bar from your old band and insert it into your new ones.

Replacing the bands

It's more difficult to get the new bands into place than it is to remove them.

Secure it in place

The easiest method is to place one side in the socket and then use the tool to snap the other side into place.

The end results

And just like that, your Pebble has transformed into a completely different device.
