This is how my Runner 3 straps end after a few months usage, september 2016 to be exact...I wear the watch h24, just disassemble it from time to time to clean it...But I guess there's obviously a design flaw with the straps, as you can see in the pic. Three straps are the cost of a brand new watch...not much happy.

    The strap is covered under warranty. Call Customer Support and they will take care of it, they are very good about replacing them. To get the number for Customer Support, go to, choose Contact at the bottom, select the service required and the product name and click Contact Customer Care and then Phone Us. It will give you the phone number for the country your account is registered under (this can be changed by clicking the flag icon in the bottom right corner of the screen). The best way to avoid damaging the strap is to not take the watch out of the strap when charging. It is designed so that the dock slips between the watch and the band which limits the amount of twisting. Also, when taking it on and off do not yank on the strap, pull it gently to the desired tightness then snap it in place, which puts less stress on rubber.

    I hope this helped answer your question. If so, please mark it as a solution so others can look for it if they have the same question.
