G-Shock Rangeman band issue
« on: October 10, 2018, 03:39:59 PM »
I I love my G-Shock Rangeman, see my post here for details
but after 2 years, the band broke, and I had to replace it (about $42).
now, 2 years later again, and the band failed, both were official Casio bands, and have failed in the same manner.
the tip end of the band side that holds the clasp/buckle seems to have split in a near perfect linear fashion.
almost as if it were made of two layers molded together
I do wear my watches loose as the manual states and the watch can travel about an inch on my arm. I do not think I am stressing the watch in that fashion.
when the first one failed I contacted Casio since it was still within my warranty (extended when I registered the watch), and they said they do not cover the bands.
any recommendations on how I can re-enforce this area when I get my new band?
any recommendations about alternate replacement bands?
