New Clips

Having contacted support ( who were useless frankly) I thought I would try here.  All I am looking for is a replacement set of the clips that attach the band to the watch face.  It's been suggested I send it back for repair which as it's out of warranty would be seriously over priced for just providing me with a clip that would cost pennies to replace

 

Any ideas anyone?

I can confirm that the Chinese after market bands come with new clips. They're about $3.25 per band and takes a few weeks to arrive. Just search for "Sony smartband talk colors" in eBay to bring up these items.

This is a global user based forum, you might want to either contact your Local support or check eBay or amazon.

Re: New Clips

Worse case scenario is that you can buy a new band box set that will come with new clips. It's better than nothing and you might enjoy having new colors to change out with. I hope this helps. I ordered some after market bands from China. They don't advertising having clips but if they surprise me and have them I'll let you know. I've been surprised many times before by what comes with things that aren't mentioned.

Re: New Clips

Oh and a set of two bands cost $12 and you can mix and match the two strap sizes for the best fit.

Re: New Clips

Absolutely. They aren't fantastic build quality but they get the job done. It's your best bet at $3.25 instead of $12+ if you just need the clips. You'll get the band too at $3.25 and the little disc that straps it in place.

Re: New Clips

Hi,

I would like to buy new clips too.

I didn´t recieve any answer from the local support. And I don´t need the new band (already have 5 colours). Just the 2 plastic clips (or more, they break very often).

 

Any idea, where to buy?

 

Thank you,

K.

Re: New Clips

Hi I ended up buying a few cheap straps from eBay and using the clips from those, I never did manage to buy the clips alone, though as a temporary measure about 5 size 10 staples bent inwards worked well, good luck
