Hey, sorry to dig up an old thread, but did you or anyone else get an answer to this? Cant seem to find anything else on the internet at all on this specific topic.

I've recently gotten a 42mm, but prefer the strap style of the 46mm/frontier.

Could a 22mm be trimmed down to 20mm I wonder?

Straps cants be trimmed down to fit there are so many bands available what size do you need?

It's a 20mm width strap I'm looking for, but like the OP, I'm having difficulty finding one in the same style as the standard one which comes with the 46mm/Frontier watch.

Do you know which one I mean? The strap on the 46mm steps out to cover over the lugs, whereas on the 42mm version it does not.

I've searched eBay/Amazon etc and cannot find one made like this for the 42mm. *though there are numerous "cheap" generic diver style resin bands of this style, but I'd rather stick as close to the Samsung type as possible.

Can't see why I couldn't trim down a 22mm with a razor - 1mm off either side where it fits between the lugs - and replace the spring-bar tbh ? It's not ideal and could look messy if not done correctly, but might be worth a try given these style bands for 46mm can be picked up relatively cheaply

Well I answered my own question regarding trimming down a 22mm to fit. It’s possible, it works and is useable, but just doesn’t look right due to the dimensions of the case vs the width of the band.



For now I’ll settle with the NATO 😁
