Hi All

I own a suunto d4i dive computer and as many of you know the rubber strap don't last very long if you use the watch daily or very often. Is there a 3rd party strap available for these watches at all or do you have to buy the original? I own a garmin fenix watch as well and they have a 3rd party silicone strap that is very easy to come buy and inexpensive.

Any info here would be appreciated. Thank you.

LOL..... Buddy I have the same watch - same problem I know of 2 places - Durban and Jozi to have replaced. Just give me a few minutes and I will get back to you with the Pretoria details, I am not sure but...... perhaps you will find a closer outlet / agent in Ape Town? Because I live in Mozambique Jozi and Durban will be the best of viable option for me... standby

Thanks for the feedback Serra Moz. I can get the original down here in CT for around R550-R599, but was just wondering if there is a after market strap available for cheaper at all. Seems new original can't be avoided.

No worries bro, that's the price... much like a Casio watch strap, for an original Casio watch strap you pay just about the same price as for a new Casio (entry level), referring to the offshore / working type Casios we use... your typical R 200 - 300 type. of course with Suunto it's different.

Hi, you can get the silicone strap for the D4 novo from Rob Allen. They are much better as they don't perish.
