Default Ladies... Show me your Gear 2!!!

New Gear 2 owner and kind of feeling like it's a bit too masculine for my taste. I know the population is small.... but I was hoping to see some pics of the Gear 2's owned by women. How are you accessorizing your Gear 2? Band recommendations for women? Being so thick... I kind of feel like a steel band would make it look even more masculine. Looking forward to hearing and seeing your thoughts.

I wasn't really feeling the watch band that comes stock, so I went out and got a new band. Not sure if it makes it more masculine or not... but this is what I went with. I like the fact that it slims down towards the latch and isn't the same thickness throughout.





I also like that the band is two-toned. The outer edges are brushed and the inside is shiny.



It'll do for now until I find something better that I like.

That would be great!!!! Thanks for offering. How do you go about changing them? Still learning how to customize the gear.

Bad news about the new band.... turns out I can't attach the charging dock because the metal piece that is attaching the band is in the way.
Something to keep an eye out for with watch bands that aren't exactly 22mm. They come with different size end pieces ranging from 18mm to 22mm.

I've never seen a band with those extra pieces on the ends. Where did you get it and does it have a special name?

Went to a local watch store and found it there. I think its similar to the China/Hong Kong ebay bands. No brand name.

I went to a jeweler store today that sold watch bands also and looked through a catalog they had and it wasn't uncommon for bands to have that type of attachment at the end. I think it makes the bands more universal... so they can be used on round or straight end watches.

Here's another example I found on ebay.

Here's a pic of it taken apart.

I'd see if you can exchange or return the one you have for a "regular" straight end band. There are tons of them out there, and they will all work with your charger.
