Watch Band

The watch band I bought was easy to loosen and would open with the slightest pressure. Is this a glitch?

If your watch band is easy to loosen, please check whether the clasp is fully closed. After magnetic adsorption, the buckles will interact to form a locking structure.

If your watch band’s clasp is not fully closed, it may open. When the clasp is fully buckled, the space between the clasp and the band is flat with no bulges. Please refer to the picture below.

When my watch is on my wrist, the clasp is squeezed and unlatched in sports training. Can I make it more difficult to unlock?

Yes! First of all, please ensure you lock the clasp correctly. When the clasp is locked, pressing a button on one side will not unlock it.

If your training will squeeze both side buttons, please adjust the clasp position according to your habits. The below photos are for your reference.


What’s the compaitibility of the new Rhapsody watch band?

It compatible with Apple Watch Series 8/7/6/SE/5/4/3/2/1 and Apple Watch Ultra.

Can I wear the strap for swimming or sports?

Yes, you can wear the strap while swimming or exercising. The strap is made of aramid fiber and carbon fiber, which are waterproof. To improve its durability and aesthetics, the strap has been treated on its surface. However, exposure to chlorinated water in pools or sea water may damage the protective paint and decrease its lifespan. For everyday waterproof use and regular activity, the strap is suitable, but high-intensity and intense exercise is not recommended. Ensure to keep it dry and clean.

Are the colorful Aramid Carbon Fiber Bands 100% pure carbon fiber?

The colorful Aramid Carbon Fiber Band (Rhapsody, Dreamland ChromaCarbon) is not entirely made of carbon fiber. Its surface is composed of aramid fiber, and the rest is made of carbon fiber. Moreover, the spring bars, magnetic clasp, and connectors are made from stainless metal.


Can the watchband be waterproof and sweatproof?

The buckle is made of magnets and some stainless steel. It is water resistant, but not waterproof, thus it is recommended to dry with a soft cloth after exposure.

Will the carbon fiber watch band affect the watch’s sphygmomanometer function?

No, it should not affect the Apple Watch’s sphygmomanometer function.

Will the magnet of this product affect the compass?

Magnets can little affect the accuracy of a compass. After some testing, the Pitaka Carbon Band’s small built-in magnet appears to have little impact on electronic compass products utilized in everyday life.
