After one of my straps broke I decided to slice them open and see where exactly the antennas were located... FOR SCIENCE!
Without the iFixit Manta kit I don't think I would have gotten them off, because the bit on the tool that was sent with the replacement straps stripped almost immediately.
Be smarter than me and use a sharp X-acto knife or fresh box cutter and a comfortable set of pliers when cutting into the straps, not a dull scissors or pocket knife.
Where did you get your replacement bands?
There are a couple sellers on eBay with the bands. I believe the term to search is ‘W280 band'. The color selection isn't great but I was psyched to be able to continue using my watch rather than buying a new one and throwing this one in a drawer, especially since I went through the effort of getting it activated on Verizon.
There is a website that sells the bands for $35 per side but they are on back order.
I found a guy on ebay that sells refurbished ones that he makes with a 3d printer for $70 for both sides shipped.
Then I found another guy that sells replacement bands on ebay without the antennas, so you have to remove the antennas from your origianl band and slide them into the replacement for $21 for both sides shipped.
