How to replace your Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro band
- Turn your Gear Fit2 Pro upside-down so that you're looking at the underside that sits on your wrist.
- Use a fingernail to pull the latch securing the band to the screen.
- Pull down from the body of your Gear Fit2 Pro.
- Repeat for the opposite side.
- Slide the new bands into place until the latch clicks.
- Run your finger over the bottom of your Gear Fit2 Pro to make sure everything is sitting flush.
That's all there is to it. No need to remove pins or anything. If you find that the new band is loose, you may have to push the latch back into place that it's locked properly.
