I'm on my 3rd strap in 3 years.. and I've gotten quite paranoid, so I've threaded the strap with braided fishing line. This way, if the strap breaks it'll still stay on my wrist. I'll post pictures of how it looks like when I get home.

And I just had another amazing encounter with the Sol... at the end of the dive as I was climbing up onto the boat, I checked the dive computer and everything was fine. I took off the BCD, put my hand on the ladder and found that my Sol was all black. The silver faceplate and plastic screen protector had fallen off! Anyway, the Sol now looks more compact and cool without the faceplate, except it now has 4 ugly white patches in the corner which must have been the sticky tape holding the faceplate in place. :)

great thanks... I did see the other 2 photos u posted sometime back... but cant see the detailed weaving 'path'
my partner's face plate dropped off some time back too... but stuck it back w superglue
also if u do safety stop w a friend who is also using a heart rate monitor the reading goes bonkers..
I just had a 195bpm reading!!

I cannot believe it.. u must be v lucky to get a ultimate strap...
do u wear your galileo loose? and on wrist or further up your arm?
what is your secret?

anyone have a solution to calibrate the transmitter??

Dive 150 now, and I've just had my second strap break on me. Anyone else has this problem?
The funny thing is the straps break where there is no stress. This time, the excess length of the strap broke for no reason. I didn't get it caught on anything. After a couple of dives on a recent trip, I found that the strap had broken about halfway down the width. It's that part where you tuck the excess length into the back of the dive computer.

yup.. my strap broke on one end at 200 dives and is now half broken on the buckle side at 220 dives... antacid can u show detailed way how u weave the threading/braid?
also I have a small wrist how do i securely sit it on my arm cos even at the last two buckles it keeps sliding off and dangles at the wrist

The transmitter is showing 30 extra bars since 160 dives!!
How do I recalibrate it ? Anyone can advise? I email UWATEC but had no answers
