Smiggle watch weirdness

This watch is getting on my nerves. it's my DD obviously not mine but we can't work out how it does up... there is no buckle! Anyone's child got this style? She has a decent watch but of course this is the one she wants to wear. Grrrr

Isn't it similar to a snap bracelet? The bracelets where you hit them on your wrist and the strap folds round and fastens.

Sorry that should have said slap bracelet.

It's a slap strap, like those braclets you get. Hold it by the strap, hit it on to your wrist and the bands will fold.

Nope not slap it's just floppy rubber

Are there holes on both sides? Are those charm things meant to keep it together?

Can you pull the charms out and then use them to clip it together?

Does the hole in the one side stretch over one of the beads on the other side.

I tried but it was nearly impossible with the charms. What a piece of tat!

Love a challenge. The watch is called “watch my style” and I have found these photos...

So I think it’s the charm at the top in your photo that you pop the back of through the appropriate hole on the bottom strap. Although, in these photos it’s more button like and differentiated by colour so is it possible your DD removed the top one and replaced it with a charm?

Your watch appears to have one charm missing. There is a hole with no charm. That missing one is a button with larger back and longer stem. It does the thing up.

Bugger bugger buggger... I thought that was a piece of rubbish and chucked it. Thanks for the photos though. Looks like I'm at square one. What a silly watch!
