Could anyone give me their feedback.

I am wanting a slap bracelet to use as a band for my lg g watch. And 22mm ones do exist, but I'm concerned their thickness may cause issues. I did find this :

You would have to take it off to be able to charge it.

it was HARD to set because the leather strap is too thick to slide through the watch pins (view here to know what I'm talking about: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hm3iAcc94E0)

but i was able to set it by aligning the strap to where it's supposed to be, then shaving off some of the back of the leather to make it thinner, and then placing the pin at that spot instead. (sorry I don't have pics to show the installation of this).

still working on how to get it to charge though.

update: so I used the thickness of the strap to my advantage. Because the strap is thick, once you place the strap pin in, it pretty much pins the strap into place. As long as you don't yank hard on the strap it'll stay in fine. So i simply cut the leather portion that covered the back of the watch (covering the charging pins) and so whenever I need to charge the watch now, I just unslip the opposite end of the strap from the hoops (you'll know what I mean if you know how to install a military NATO strap) to expose the back of the watch. After charging, slip the opposite end back through the hoops and voila back in business.
I've gotten a LOT of compliments for this strap

Quick question. That strap is really nice. What colors did you select from the ebay ad? I see several colors and not sure which one is the one you have.

Slap bands do not work. I even shaved off some rubber so it would fit but there was too much bending going in to curve around the pins and behind the watch. Cool idea though.

Anyone try a gold metal strap yet, would that look bad? Been waiting for something like this, he's looking into hopefully developing something for our watch.

Made a new strap yesterday, yellow cane toad. I'm really happy with how it looks.

sorry for the late reply!

There are 3 brown shades with the black rings. I got the medium brown one with black buckle.

The link should go directly to the correct color. Good luck!
