You need a special tool for this. A department storeor where you bought the watch or jeweller would be able to do this. :-)

I am trying to figure out how to shorten the wrist band on my Casio Edifice EFA-119.


mcdevito75 here, If your Casio has a metal band, you can remove 1--2 links, this takes a special tool called a link remover, best bet is to look for a small watch repair shop in your area. If your Casio has a strap, the buckle may be able to move up the strap to fit your wrist, if so, move the buckle up the strap to fit your wrist and cut offf the exccess strap. If not, you"ll have to replace the entire strap. Hope this helps.

How do I shorten my Ice watch strap?


mcdevito75 here, I imagine you mean a Band (metal) they can be shortened by removeing links from the band itself, you"ll need a specific tool called a link remover tool. they are available on ebay. However by the time you get the tool and the time to do the work, and if you don"t do any work on watches, the best bet is to look for a small watch repair shop in your area to remove these links. Hold onto the removed links for later replacement. If it"s a Strap (material) on your watch, say, leather, rubber etc. simply cut the excess strap at an angle with scissors.

Acqua indigio watch.expanding type strap is too long. can i remove "links"?


Save your nerves and your strap. Visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask to get links out. If you will try to do it yourself, you will loose your strap as you wont be able to put it back together. If you anyway decided to do it yourself, click on my profile and check out my solutions. I do explained all this tricky job to one customer about a year ago, so, you will definitely find it if you have enough patience to go through all my solutions. Rate me plz.

Watch strap adjust


Not all watch bands are adjustable. If yours is, you will see the links are connected with tiny pins. Any store that sells watches will have the tool to remove links. Some watches require a special tool, those need to be adjusted at a store that sells that brand.

Removing links


It?s very tough to remove the links, I would recommend taking it to a dealer If you have to, you will either need a fine punch (or very masonry nail), a medium hammer, and a piece of wood a couple of inches square, a rag or wash cloth. A sturdy flat blade watch makers screwdriver. The ones from a dollar store may not work, and a pair of pliers. There are two types of links, both of them are a pig to remove, expect lost fingers, lots of swearing and possible scratched strap. Version one, The one I think you have, Place the watch strap flat on something hard, put a cloth under it so it will not mark, the outside of the strap will be on the cloth and you will see the arrow, there is a rectangle with a nipple recessed inside. Place the blade of the screwdriver between the nipple and the edge of the rectangle, press down and wiggle between the nipple and the edge and twist, there will be a locking pin which comes out of the side link, in the direction of the arrow. Wiggle away until you can free the locking pin. It?s simpler to put them back. Version two, Place the rag folded a couple of times on the block of wood Place the strap on the rag so it?s on it?s side, hang the watch over the edge of the block so the strap is flat against the block and there is nothing touching the watch (hanging in air) Look at the edge of the strap, see the small pin, in the fold of the metal, punch it out (down into the cloth) enough to then grab it with the pliers, I actually drilled a small hole in the block of wood so the pin would be pushed into that rather than against the wood, but don?t drill holes in your dining table! I would still recommend taking it to a dealer,

Caravelle by Bulova watch strap adjust


You need to push the pins out in the direction of the arrows. Then take out one link from each side. Put the pins back in the same way they came out, with the slot pointing the same direction as before.

Nike Triax CV10 - Successful HRM reset 7 November 2008
 
I had real problems too. Even after repeatedly following the known reset steps everyone else is posting up. Here’s how I got mine going, please forgive the mind bogglingly tedious detail…
 
First make sure you’re using new good quality batteries. I used Maxell’s, bought in 10’s from Hong Kong on ebay – no problem.
 
Second, and this is the ESSENTIAL bit…move right away from the computer and any other electromagnetic sources before carrying out the known reset…
 
Third, follow the known reset steps below, adjusted to what worked for me…
 
If you press all four buttons of your Nike HRM it will reset. Next time you go to "RUN" mode, it will show "HRM LINK" error. You will now need to "hard reset" the unit.
 
Nike made a late change to add a "hard reset" to the chest strap. To re-link (re-initialise) the watch you'll need to open the battery door on the chest strap, and use a paper clip (or the equivalent) to push the small gold button in the battery area. There should be a small sticker in the battery compartment that points to the reset button.
 
The re-initialisation steps for the Nike C10 and CV10 digital HRM's is:
 
(1) reset the watch
(2) open the battery door on the chest strap
(3) move the watch to RUN mode
(4) press the reset button in the chest strap battery area without removing the battery
 
Tip - I agree with the suggestion to use a pin or needle and definitely do it with the battery in the hrm.
Tip – Thumb holds battery to stop it from pinging out, other hand performs jiggle with pin until the link is made (it links straightaway if you jiggle it just right!)
 
(5) replace chest strap battery cover…and smile!
