NATO straps are a single peice of material that threads behind your watch like a belt.

This is different to "standard" watch straps which are usually two separate pieces which 'clip' on to the watch face.

What is a NATO strap

NATO straps were originally created for the military, and are traditionally made from nylon - however they are now available in a range of materials such as leather and canvas.

The benefits of using "NATO" straps include:

  • You can switch between NATO straps easily - without needing any tools
  • They come in a range of colours - allowing you to give the same watch multiple looks and styles
  • Our nylon straps are waterproof and durable
  • They are extra long - meaning you can wear them over wetsuits
  • They can be shortened easily

Most "normal" straps come in two parts, and are affixed to the watch face with two small pins (spring bars).

On the other hand - "NATO" slip-through straps are a single peice of fabric which threads through the watch face and between the spring bars and then around your wrist (like a belt).

Interchanging between different NATO straps will require no special tools.

You may need a spring bar tool when removing the original strap from your watch, but some watches actually come with a tool to help you do this (such as Daniel Wellington), or you could also use a small screwdriver

Once you have removed the original strap, interchanging between NATO 'slip-though' straps only takes seconds.

If your watch is an odd width, you should round up to the next even number.

Our straps are made from nylon and will flex to fill the 0.5mm difference on each side and the overlap will be barely noticable.

For example:

Smart watch with heart monitor

Will the one piece strap affect the operation of a heart monitor on a smart watch? Since the strap will cover the sensors
