The Complete Guide to Apple Watch Bands in 2023: Sizing, Styles, and More

The Complete Guide to Apple Watch Bands in 2023: Sizing, Styles, and More

, by Benjamin Davis, 5 min reading time

When Apple released the Apple Watch in 2015 they developed a system that allows users to quickly change watch straps. This means you can change your band in seconds, so you can use a different band according to your mood or activity, or to match your outfit. This is especially useful if you want a waterproof band for swimming or working out, and a fancier band for when you go out.

Apple Watch band compatibility

Apple has slightly changed the size of the Apple Watch over the years. The first models, up to the Series 3, came in 38mm and 42mm case sizes. The Series 4, 5, 6, and the SE, were 40mm and 44mm. The Series 7 and 8 are 41mm and 45mm. And the Apple Watch Ultra is 49mm.

You can match most bands with any Apple Watch Series 3 or newer. The bands come in two sizes. 38-41mm and 42-49mm and they fit the watches within those ranges.
