Take the old one to any auto parts store or halfords type shop. They can match the belt in seconds.
And it'll be a quarter of the spare part price.

Measure the centre to centre distance between the motor and drive pulleys in the middle of the adjustment range, double it. Then take half the circumference of the drive pulley and motor pulley (Pi times diameter divided by 2) and add them to the distance measurements. That's the length of belt you need. If you can remove the pulley from either pulley take it with you so they can get the correct belt width to the places sunnybob mentioned.

https://www.tuffsaws.co.uk/ another option for blades, great quality and service.

If I recall the last belt I replaced was a pale coloured urethane v ribbed belt. The replacement was a black belt which fitted well, so imagine no difference in size between the two you mentioned.
Thought I got it from Miles Tool & Machinery but don't see on their site any more, was about 7/8 quid.

PS- I'll go and measure mine if you can wait, 40 mins or so.

Ok, 640 mm approx external but bear in mind the belt has likely stretched a bit.
8mm wide and 4 Vs.
You may get one from a motor factor but to be honest I'd just get one from a Metabo spares stockist.
