The Galaxy Watch 3 is a great Android smartwatch with many nice features.
The two bands or straps that come with the Watch 3 work well, but they can become worn and need to be replaced.
It is easy to replace the Watch 3 bands by first finding a good replacement and then changing it out on the unit.
How Do I Replace the Band on a Samsung Galaxy Watch 3?
At the back of the Watch 3, located on the band, is a small pin that moves inward.
Each side of the band has pins that go into the watch, with one movable and one unmovable.
When the movable pin is pushed inward, the band will come out.
A new band can be inserted by pushing the pin in, aligning the side pins, and letting go of the movable pin.
The pins are small to work with, but it is a straightforward task to replace the bands.
