How to fix Apple Watch link bracelet strap


A little under two years ago I bought the silver link bracelet for my Apple Watch. Recently it broke and Apple are refusing to repair/replace it. They say my only option is to purchase a new strap at $500 USD!! No thanks!

The section that connects to the watch has separated from the rest of the band/strap/bracelet

I've tried a local jeweller but he doesn't think it's repairable. He did say that he doesn't specialise in Apple Watch though.

Any thoughts how to repair it please?


Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I think that it’s not an electronic repair subject and what you did already was the best thing to do , my advice if this happens to me i’ll try an other jewelry shop or fixing expert cause it’s only the bracelet , and you can buy a chipper band like the sport or the nike or just from an other company or brand
