To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The strap ring on the band for my Forerunner 235 broke. I did not need an entire new band and I found these. Replacement ring can slip on over the buckle end of the band fairly easily. I did not need to remove the band from the watch to put on the replacement ring. I actually put on two strap rings. Holds the strap in place better than just using one.
Great deal on a "planned obsolescent" item. My Garmin watchband rings only last about 1 year before breaking, while the watchband lasts a lot longer. These are more convenient than using electrical tape to hold old ones together, or using a slice from a bicycle inner tube, or rubber band. They do not seem to be the same quality as the original watchband rings, but the current one (first one used) has lasted 5 months so far. This is a lot more cost effective than buying a new watchband just for the ring to hold the end of the watchband.
The Garmin forerunner 230 band original secure ring on my forerunner band was teared every about 18 months. Last time I bought an original band to have the original secure ring and it cost me a lot of money. I bought these replacement secure rings this time. They don't look exactly like the original but very similar so I don't even notice the difference after I installed them - they are straight and not curved and they are a little thinner and flexible than the original. They fit easily on the Garmin band even without taking of the band since you can slide the ring over the buckle with its flexibility. The ring looks nice, feels nice, keeps the and in place and I am very very happy with it. You get a package of 10 rings so even if it tears, who cares - it is cheap and easy to replace. It has the little knob in the middle of it like the original which is nice and important to keep it in place. I like this product , got it on time and as expected from the seller.
So these don't really fit perfectly but they do stretch enough to go over the watch band and hold it in place. Since the thing holding the watch band in place isn't something I really pay much attention to, I can't say I care but I think it would just function better if it were a little bigger so it actually slid smoothly over the band.
