Lets face it, the strap in the box is crap! I really like the watch (and its strap) I was already wearing every day and I wanted to add the liveview to the existing strap. So I took out a few links and slotted the LV (in its little caddy) onto the strap.
As you can see on the last picture there was no place to attach the bottom metal spring bar to the watch strap so I had to tape it on, brown tape was all I had. I also broke one of the metal spring bars on the watch so more brown tape had to be used. I still need to get some spacers for the top metal spring bar as the strap slides along the bar too much.

I went for a £6 casio black plastic strap from Timpsons, fitted.

are you finding it popping out using a different strap?

It's as snug as the old strap - the holder is same after all - but I guess you could push it out from the back a bit easier if you tried.

with the position of mine on my wrist, i find that my wrist bone pops it out sometimes when i move my wrist to the extremes, but normal use it stays in. But the holder is crap, i may glue it together. Why did the make the holder and LV seperate? What use id the LV without the holder?
