Customizing the Bracelet Size

Follow these steps to make Polar Loop your own by adjusting it to your wrist size.

  1. Open the buckle by pressing the buckle side buttons.

  2. Detach the buckle from both ends.

    Take the buckle tool that came in the box and make the spring bars pop out with it. Then remove the buckle from the bracelet.

  3. Measure your wrist size.

    Separate the measuring tool from the getting started guide along the perforated line.

    Wrap it around your wrist snugly and take note of the numbers you get. There's one number for both ends. Each number represents the number of blocks between the grooves inside your bracelet you need to take off.

  4. Trim the band carefully from both ends.

    To make sure the display will be in the center, it's important that you shorten the band from both ends.

    Count as many blocks from one end as the number you measured. Follow the straight line in the groove and between the spring bar holes and then carefully cut the band.

    Be careful not to cut into the spring bar holes.

    Repeat the action to the other side of the bracelet.

  5. Put the buckle back on.

    Take one spring bar and place it inside the first hole at the end of the bracelet and put one end of the spring bar in the buckle’s spring bar hole.

    Use the tool to ease the other end of the spring bar inside the other spring bar hole in the buckle.

    Do the same on the other end of the band.

  6. Try the band on to see if it fits.

    You can adjust the length if needed by moving one of the buckle spring bars to the outer spring bar hole until it fits perfectly. Or, if necessary, trim the band once more by one block at a time.
