Velcro watch bands eliminate the three weak links in most watchstraps, the two small spring pins on either side of the watch body, and the watchstrap buckle or closure itself. The failure of any ONE of those results in loss of your watch. Velcro bands slide through BOTH watchpins, and eliminates the buckle closure concept altogether. The watchband strap's adjustability allows for a easy fit on almost any size wrist. It can even fit over gloves, foul weather gear, wetsuits, etc.
