    DW5600E replacement band?

    I got my new DW5600E a couple days ago and wore it a little over the weekend but didn't like the way it fit. It's not that it's that uncomfortable, it just doesn't fit well. In one hole it's too large and the other hole it's too tight.

    After some searching it looks like some have used a band meant for the GW5000. Ebay has them but they cost almost as much as the watch.

    Anyone have different band suggestions? Opinions and pics of a DW5600E using the GW5000 band would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Those bands are standardized. You have the same problem that I do, a wrist 'in-between.' You need a steel-cased screwdown G. 5000SL or one of the anniversary models will add that little bit of thickness to make it fit perfectly.

    No one has changed their 5600E band?

    All the straps between DW-6900 and DW-5600 are interchangeable - you might try the strap for a DW-6900 - I once had one on my GLS-5600 - for my wrist it was a better fit:

    I put a GW-5000 band on a DW-5600E and it fit very comfortably. The resin is softer. You can pick them up from PacParts for just over $16 (shipping not included).

    Thanks for for the heads up on PacParts. I guess it's best to call them. Their site is like trying to decipher hieroglyphics.

    I have a GW-5000 strap installed on my DW-5600e. Perfect combination. The strap looks identical to the stock strap, but it feels softer and more flexible. I got my strap from Seiya at Seiyajapan.com.
