I bought my Suunto in December and now I notice that the rubber padding covering the buttons is coming loose.

Does anyone know if this is normal or will it cause a problem with water damage?
Suunto say I must send it in, but Finland is along way off, so want to get a second opinion before sending it to them.

pictures of the problem.

Did you take the watch band off? There are four little tags that slip into the watchband to hold it close to the case. Often these tags break causing the watchband to slip- typically when removing or putting on the watchband. No it will not affect waterproof-ness as the case itself is sealed.

I did not remove the strap, will try and remove the strap carefully and see if I can fix the band.

Thank you for the reply.

The clips is still intact it just pulls away when all 4 clips is securely in.
Only when I un-clip one side slightly, it fits securely around the casing.
