Easy replacement. Just order a new one.
All D6 users, always check your rubber strap. Imagine it breaking while you are half way diving.  :P

I have the same problem with both of my Stinger and D6... but used black rubber bands, one I got from my Nokia charger and the other from Uncle Henry (dunno where he got it from but many thanks to him). But out of curiosity, how much is it if I want to replace the Stinger and D6 straps to new one? thinking of changing the straps since the battery also needs a change.

I want to change into the titanium band.

But I was told it only comes with the DC itself. You can't buy is as replacement. Isit true?

I think, you just go to a watch shop and ask them to change.
They have varieties of strap, from plastic to rubber to steel or 'gold' :D
Black/Pink/etc...

Dunno whether those shopping mall watch shop got or not.
If dun have, look for old shop that sell watch/clock.

I think a new rubber strap cost more than RM100.

Can our friend, Henry of Scuba Dynamics, verify that?

Same thing just happened to my D6 too. Last July, the strap ring broke & i replaced it with an O ring. Last month, the strap broke (but not totally split into 2 but can see that it is broken waiting to split).
How much does it cost to replace the whole strap?

In singapore, it cost S$120. (RM285)

I'm pretty sure it's cheaper in KL.
