    Hi

    Would a standard hole punch put a hole in the sports strap as I found the watch moved around my wrist or was slightly to tight.

    I would prefer not to have to do this

    Would apple resize in store?

    Thanks

    They will not do it in store.

    A hole punch will do it but may weaken the strap if it is close to the existing holes. Also you would have to make sure the size was correct for the pin.

    The holes will be close enough for most people to find a comfortable one.

    If you need a new hole, as with any other rubber strap - don't use a hold punch. Find something that's roughly the right size and shape, heat it, and poke a new hole from the outside, in.

    thank you for all advice

    yes I'm sure strap will be fine just haven't worn a watch for 20 years! so will have to get used to that.

    Very much looking forward to recieving the all black sports 42mm week on Friday hopefully & pairing with iphone 6 (ordered 8.02am BST)
