    Do you mean a two-piece strap, one piece on each pin, or the kind that threads through the pins so if you lose one pin you don't lose the watch....like the one it comes with? For example:
    orange two-piece Scuba Orange
    black one-piece Elastic Single Pass Strap Black

    I believe this is the company I bought mine from
    Borealis Rubber Strap 22mm Orange - Best in Market

    It works pretty well with the Teric extension.

    Got mine today... is this thing supposed to come with an instruction manual? Because mine didn't come with anything... just a plain unmarked cardboard box with the watch and cable. I'm still trying to figure out how to set depth from meters to 'murican (feet). Also, I see I can set CF to CF1, CF2, or CF3... I assume that means the conservatism factors, but which corresponds to GF of 45/95 and which to 35/75? I kinda wish it was more obvious so I don't accidentally pick the wrong one.

    I was looking for a back up computer (to my perdix) to replace my Oceanic Atom 2.0 that can be worn as a watch while on vacation. My first impression... this thing is huge on my skinny wrists. Its a 50mm case, and it sits pretty high off the wrist. I wear 39-42mm watches, so this one is pretty chunky. It doesn't look terrible, but I can see myself banging this thing against everything. I hope I can find a screen protector for it.

    Is the strap that comes with the Teric insecure? It is a two piece strap.

    If you want a two piece strap, that's what you get....it is as secure as the pin holding it. Lose/break the pin, the computer is gone.
    I have no idea how the Teric pins and the Excursion pins compare in strength and security.

    Basically the same, hex head one long one acts as the bar and the other end a small screw, pretty secure and if I ever found one getting loose a bit of blue locktight should solve it.
