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.
I was surprised when the watchband retainer broke on my Garmin Vivo Active 3 and bummed thinking I would have to buy a complete new band. A search on amazon turned these up.
This came in a pack of about 10 for about $8, I only needed one but I guess I have spares if I break another. They are very easy to install and work as good or better than the original because the rubber is a bit more grippy (softer rubber maybe?).
I am very happy with these and would recommend them to others.
I really didn't want to buy a whole new band since I like the one that came with the watch.
However, I think it's silly to make me buy so many - it's really a waste. I know they're a small item and very cheap but to force people to buy so many in a batch is silly. I will never use more than one or two
I'm not sure why the stock Vivoactive 3 band ring thing breaks so easy, but I'm glad I tried these rings. I had tried a cheap replacement band the first time the ring broke, and the material caused a skin rash. I ended up buying a Garmin replacement band, but after a few months the ring broke again. I'm not about to spend $30 every few months just so the band isn't flopping around.
These rings fit great and haven't caused any skin irradiation. At this point the pack of them will probably last longer than the watch itself.
The replacement fastener ring/loop was easy to put on (just stretches over the band buckle) and holds the excess other band in place. I had no issues with fit on my Garmin Vivoactive 3 silicone watch band. It's way more cost effective to buy these than a whole new band if this is the only part that broke. Comfort-wise, I don't notice a difference in material against my skin. However, the color of the replacement ring/fastener is darker than my original watch band. Not sure if this is due to age and wear of my original band, which is more faded. Obviously, as this is a 3rd party replacement, it doesn't have the Garmin brand stamped on it and doesn't quite look the same (shape wise). All of this is hardly noticeable and for the price, something I'm happy to live with. I'm glad that this is a bulk pack so there are backup replacement fasteners/loops in case they continue to break.
I bought this to replace an original part that broke and fell off my vivoactiv 3. The first pack I purchased by the same seller fit very loosely and is not the proper replacement part. This fits snugly and is made more correctly for the Vivoactive 3.
I woke up and noticed my watch's ring disappeared. I thought I would need to buy a new band. While I was searching for new band, the ring came up. I tried to find the same one as the original one but non available. Then came down to this option. Got it and it works great and fit really well for my Garmin.
The package comes with more Fastener Rings than I needed, but it's not that expensive and I suspect the other one I didn't replace will eventually break as well, so these will likely out last my use of the band. Also these appear to be more robust than the ones on my current band. Very satisfied.
Can’t tell the difference between these and the original. The original lasted over a year so I didn’t need 10 of these. but they were cheap so I guess I have a life time supply now if I need another before replacing the watch.
