How do I install my strap?

Kristin Updated by Kristin

Installing your Strap is simple! Follow the steps below to quickly and easily install your new Nomad strap correctly:

  1. First, you'll need to uninstall your old Apple Watch strap. To do this, flip the watch upside down to expose the push-release buttons on the underside of the watch.
  2. Push and hold one of the buttons down. Simultaneously slide the lug out of the watch body. Repeat on the other side.
  3. Now you're ready to install your Nomad strap into the lug port. The buckle side of the Strap should be oriented upwards, near the watch crown, with the adjustment side of the strap (with holes) oriented downwards.
  4. To install a new strap into the watch, you do not need to hold down the button on the underside of the watch. Ensure that the side of the strap that has a rubber pad that can be pushed down is facing up. If your strap is installed upside down, your strap may get stuck inside your watch. Then, simply slide the strap's lug into the watch's lug port.
