I got my new Garmin 405 strap today, ordered from Amazon for £16. It came all the way from NJ, USA. I maybe could have contacted Garmin before I bought the new strap, but my Garmin 405 is way outside it’s warranty, (bought in December 08) so I figured they’d tell me to buy one anyway.
The connectors on my old strap which hold the buckle in broke the other day so I forked out for a new strap.
Update – that wasn’t all that tricky at all… although I wonder what I would have done without the internet!

Happy running from now on (minus the temporary hair band strap holder) for me. 😀
