How can I make a diy basis peak sport vent strap?

I don't want to blow 30 dollars on a sport vent strap because I had to give 100 dollars to convince my dad to buy me the watch itself. The reason  I want it is because you have to wear the watch really tight for consistent heart rate monitoring. Could someone come up with an instructable?? For meeeeee???????

Buy any cheap plastic strap and cut holes in it, or make your own paracord strap:

Or, more generally:

Just for you, some thoughtful persons have already written some 'ibles on how to make watch bands, here:

https://www.instructables.com/howto/watch+band/

It's just a plastic watch band. Nothing to it. If you need it tighter and the hole on the strap don't cut it then add a hole where you need it. Otherwise buy a cheap velcro watch band for it so you can sinch it as tight as you need.

100$ for a watch but unwilling to buy a proper one with included strap?
Kids are so spoiled these days....
