Fix your wrist bands. Hopeless!

edited February 11 in TomTom Touch
Purchased tomtom touch in April. Wrist band broke in August when the plastic border around the actual device fractured. You provided a replacement in September. The replacement strap you eventually provided for my original strap has also broken. This time the loop at the end. I find it quite remarkable that a product that in most respects is very good has such a poor wrist band. The very nature of the product requires that users take it off frequently to download their data. Also those who use it are likely (like me) to be people who do a lot of exercise and therefore it will be worn constantly. In fact it is designed to be worn constantly. So why have you developed a band that is so fragile that it is incapable of lasting more than a few months? Not only is this frustrating for your customers but it also environmentally bad as it simply creates more silicone waste. I can't imagine that the cheap bands, available at a fraction of the cost of the genuine band, can be significantly less durable than yours, so why are yours so costly, and so bad. It would be good if you could improve your product. I sent an e-mail but you don't respond and the contact bit your application is not working either. Like so many organisations you seem incapable of actually providing customer service while pretending you do. I would like a response from tomtom if any tomtom employee reads this, or in fact actually exists

    TT Sports went out of business well over a year ago (six months before you bought the device) and ceased all production and development. You bought a dead product and supplies for it are extremely limited. It sounds like you are still under warranty so Support should send you a new band (assuming they have them) but the quality will be the same as they stopped producing them so they are what is left of the old stock. There is no phone support for the watches so email or chat are your only option. The only TT employees who are on here are moderators who do not handle support issues. Keep emailing or try live chat and se fi that works.

    Thank you for that t(etc.). I didn't know they were no longer in production. They are still sold in Australia (or were last year) as though they were. I didn't really expect to get anywhere with this other than to send them a bit of a message that it damages their brand whether it is for this type of device or anything else. ebay for me now to get some cheap bands.
    Cheers.
