I have a sports watch- an ironman digital that I wear everywhere, every day. However, I hate it when the long end of the strap, the part of the adjustable strap that's not needed to go around my wrist, flies free. Usually, it's held in place with a clasp strap- that little loop above the buckle made just to hold the loose end to the watch. But mine broke.
So when my sugru arrived, I decided to make this my first sugru project: making a new clasp strap out of sugru.
-watch with missing clasp strap
Unnecessary materials (I didn't use them, but they would probably help):
OR maybe Vaseline?
(pending future experimentation with sugru)
Step 1: Prepare Watch
Make sure your watch is clean; buckle it.
This is the point at which the unnecessary materials list (see intro page) comes into play: this would be a lot easier if the end of the strap were close to the band, unlike in this picture. The trouble is, sugru bonds to everything- watch bands, aluminum foil, etc. So you might want to try putting a rubber band on it, or I hear sugru doesn't stick to cling film.. let me know what works, if you try it!
But I, fool that I am, just let it be, as shown in the picture.
