New SW3 Bands

Hi All

 

I'm trying desperately to find 1 or 2 new black SW3 straps / bands - even a metal band would do the job.. but nothing seems available anywhere.. not even on ebay (except at a price higher than a new watch) especially trying to find one in Australia!

 

Does anyone know where I could get them?

 

Steve

Re: New SW3 Bands

Hi Uliwooly

 

Contacted them - they cant help and just kept saying they dont deal with retail. They suggested a local retailer - which is great until I reminded her that this retailer dont display the smart watches - they keep them in Cupboards! They definitly do not do spares!

 

They gave me the number for Phonebiz - their repairer in Sydney - who are also clueless and have no stock. Seems to be endemic with Sony - great products let down by ancillaries and marketing.

 

I'm thinking I may just have to order from handtec in the UK and wait for them to get stock in..

Re: New SW3 Bands

Hi @5teve,

I'm sorry to hear about the troubles with finding a new wrist strap for your Smartwatch 3. sad

I'm afraid I won't be able to give you any recommendations on a retailer in Australia where you can buy a new wrist strap for your Smartwatch 3, since I am situated in the Nordics and Xperia store is not available in Australia.

Here in the Nordics we have a couple of websites where you can search for a specific product and it will list all the retailers that have the product in stock. I found a site called Pricespy, which is for customers in New Zealand, but if you are familiar with a similar site in Australia you can have a look there!

I wish you the best of luck finding a new wrist strap for your Smartwatch 3, and please share if you find out where you can buy one!

Have a great day and Merry Christmas! smile happy

Re: New SW3 Bands

Have the same problem and I live in Sweden.

 

I bought the watch from Sonys own webstore.

I think I only need the "rubber-part" if thats any help, the metalclip is still in good condition.

 

Guess more and more will have need for a new strap

Re: New SW3 Bands

I have purchased a 3D printed case for my smartwatch 3 so I can add any 42mm Watch strap.

Re: New SW3 Bands

Hi @1_1, welcome to our community! smile happy

I'm sorry for the late reply, I have been out of office due to vacation.

When I checked the eShop for Sweden there are no straps for Smartwatch 3 in stock at the moment.

I would recommend that you get in contact with the eShop support for your specific market and they will be able to answer your questions regarding when the item will be back in stock. Please see the link below for contact information!
