It was nothing more than split pins holding the links together. I pushed them out removed the links and pushed them back in.

Start by looking at the inside of the watchband, there should be a arrow pointing up/down. Take a pin and put it in on the side that shows the arrow going down. Take a hammer and GENTLY tapp the pin. The pin should push out a pin in the band. Do this as many times as you have to for the size you desire, and then put the pin in the same derection as you tapped the pin out. Usually you will also see a **** on the side youn DON'T want to tap out. If you still; have a problem don;'t hesitate to write me, and I will be glad to take you step by step with this. Good Luck!!

SOURCE: Remove link from Watch Band
I would suggest that you take it to local jewler or watch repair center, it normally runs less then $10 to remove an unlimited number.
Wal-Mart used to be a good place to go, but have since decided to support only watches that are sold in the store, which are crappy at best.
If you want to do it personally...I would discouage it. It is normally a simple process but without training, can turn into a big problem with minimal effort.
Have a great day!

You may have
arrows inside bracelet.Arrows are pointing the way the pins must come
First you have to find out what sort of pins or even screws are used to keep links together.
Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove.
Start with a tiny screwdriver and start to unscrew one of the screws. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead.
For removing pins the best would be pin removing tool (approx.5GBP on ebay), but it's possible to do the job without it.
Take a hardened steel needle and blunt the sharp end to the approx. size of pin end diameter using any sharpening stone or sandpaper. Get an old towel and fold it to make a soft base for work (like small cusion). As you don't have a special bracelet holder you will need a pair of helping hands to hold the bracelet steady upright. You will need small hammer and pair of flat nose pliers as well.
NOTE: The pins MUST be driven split end out first, not vice versa. Make sure that the grooved pin ends are facing towel, not the needle and hammer!!!
Now place the watch on the folded towel, take that needle and smallest hammer you have and start driving the pin out using light blows. Do Not hit hard, as you will brake the needle, scratch your watch or even injure yourself. Watchmakers are using 45 gram hammer, so, calculate your strength of blows.
After a few blows check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the end is long enough to grab it with pliers, pull the pin out with pliers. When pulling, do NOT turn pliers, as pins tend to brake when twisted. Use firm grip and your strength to pull the pin without twisting.
After shortening the bracelet or adding extra link(s) make sure that the pins go back EXACTLY the same way as they came out- the blunt end first in the hole and the split (grooved) end last. Before doing that check remaining pins in bracelet to make sure that you put them back from the right side of bracelet.
It is recommended to use plastic hammer to drive pins back in or you will scratch or damage bracelet. If plastic hammer is not available use an old toothbrush handle (or some plastic item) as an absorber. Simply put pin into the hole as deep as you can with your fingers, put the toothbrush handle on split pin end and hit handle, not the pin.
Make sure that pin ends are flush with bracelet. If needed- hit few more times.
Don't forget to rate, please.

that happened to me too...the watch repair man told me that I had the stop watch on. The stop watch should serve as a stop watch, not the second hand. The second time on your watch is the small dial at the bottom middle of the face. Once I turned off the stop watch feature, my battery life is fine...I have not had to change my battery in over 2 years now. HOpe this helps.
