    How to get rid of this large band gap?

    So, with my GA-110, I always have a gap in my bands:



    and



    I mostly use this G for work, but the band sometimes gets pulled out by cause of some product getting in the gap and pulling it. How do I get rid of this? I know you have the little thingy to control the band, It will solve the problem, except that I have a really large part of the band sticking out which looks really weird.
    I wear it like this now:



    So, any tips?

    Use an addiitional keeper if you have spare strap... or something like keeper, o-ring like LUW suggested will work nicely. And it's black, so it won't be too visible.

    I am currently using 3 tie-wraps to keep the band secure, i'll hold it like this for like 24H, would it work?

    You can use tie wrap... Just make sure you leave the hole big enough for strap and then cut the ''tail'', it should work.

    The o-ring? Just slip it over the buckle, easy-peasy.

    Maybe.....a giant stapler?

    Ok, an o-ring will suffice. But it looks like the strap that goes into the buckle is curved more than it should, thus creating the convex shape. Maybe the next time you store it before your next wear, you could bend it the other way a little and find some weight to hold it in place. So that once it goes 'free', it doesn't curve as much, and won't pop out like how it does now. Resin has this tendency to take the form it is stored in, if stored in that form long enough. I have one G which when I store it, I accidentally put too much weight on it; the strap ended up in a shape something like yours. But nothing difficult to fix. Hope you got what I mean because honestly, even I would need to re-read what I type to fully understand what I'm saying lol.

    It's a little hard to tell from your pictures, but it's possible that you're wearing it a little too tight. If the tension on the buckle is high, it may actually be causing the loose end to pop up. Maybe try it a notch looser? Many people would say that you should be able to get a finger between the strap and your wrist, but it also shouldn't be so loose that it moves more than an inch or two up your arm.

    I hate having the watch as loose as Casio suggest, as the module invariably rolls up round the ball of my wrist.

    My advice - put some weight on, it'll fit better
