Replace the strap on your Pebble smartwatch

Culture
Pebble recently announced a new version of its popular smartwatch. The Pebble Steel shares the same internals as the original but it features a slimmer, stronger and more attractive design which more closely resembles a traditional watch. At $250 though, it doesn't come cheap especially if you have the original Pebble. But did you know that a way to transform this watch into a more stylish one? I'm Danny Graziano and I'm going to show you how to replace the band on your original Pebble. You would need two of these to get the job done. The first is this tool, a spring bar tool. This will run you about 7 bucks on Amazon. The second is a new watch band. You can opt for one with a leather, fabric or even a steel strap. I chose a basic white one to go with my white Pebble. Either way, the method is the same. Just be sure it's a 22-millimeter band. The strap is held in place with a spring bar. In a well-lit area, take the tool and carefully slide it in between the watch and the strap. When you make contact with the spring, move the tool away from the edge of the watch and dislodge the spring from its socket. Once the spring is out, do the exact same thing with the other side. Both springs should pop out pretty easily. Next, carefully remove the spring bar from each strap and then insert them into the new bands. Getting the new band into place can be tricky. I found the easiest way to do this is to place one side of the spring in the socket and use the tool to snap the other side into place. It may take a few tries but, once complete, your Pebble will be more personal and unique. For more detailed instructions and a link to the specific tool I used, check out my article at howto.cnet.com. You can also reach, ask me on Twitter and share how you customize your Pebble. I'm Dan Graziano for CNET. Thanks for watching.
