    Would you recommend cutting carbon fiber strap?

    Just got my gws5600 and I really like the carbon fiber strap, except its way too long. I would like to shorten it, but it hurts me to cut the nice strap. Also these straps are hard to find. I dont know if they even sell these. I could buy normal rubber strap, but then I would lose the "gimmicky" bonus that comes with having carbon fiber strap

    Instead of cutting it, you can buy an extra strap keeper(you can find them on Amazon). It's very easy to install and it will keep that extra bit of strap down.

    Your strap has printed text on it, in my humble opinion, you'll wreck it by cutting it - but hey, it's your watch!

    So your cutting the one thing that makes this watch special? Just remember to measure once and cut twice.

    If it were me I'd put up with the extra length based on what you've most likely paid out for it!!

    Seems a shame to spoil it!
