    Question How do I replace bracelet with resin strap on GW-M5600BC?

    Hi all, been reading this forum off and on for a while now but this is my 1st post. Given all the knowledge out there, hoping someone can help with this...

    I just treated myself to one of these (and very nice it is too)...
    http://www.tiktox.com/gwm5600bc-offer-p-2564.php

    It comes with the standard bracelet attached plus a separate resin strap. I was under the impression that removing the 4 screws on the bezel would allow me to remove the bracelet... I was mistaken, this just lets you take the bezel off.

    So how do I take off the bracelet so I can try the resin strap? I can't seem to work it out and don't want to risk damaging something by being too heavy-handed. I 've searched the forum and Google but can't seem to find any kind of instructions. Can anybody give me a few pointers or direct me to a page or thread if it's already been covered?

    Thanks!

    There are standard springbars, I think. From the back you should be able to see them. Compress one end with a small-bladed screwdriver (or a springbar tool). The spring bar will have small ridges against which you can apply pressure.

    Welcome to the forum.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Yep Tribe has it exactly - in fact you don't need to take the bezel out at all to change the strap.
