Frequently Asked Questions

  • Apple Watch bands are available in a variety of styles and sizes.


    First, you’ll need to choose a case size and band style to see which band sizes are available with that combination. The band you choose will specify the maximum and minimum wrist size. To get the correct band size, we recommend that you precisely measure around your wrist.


    If you choose an Apple Watch with a Sport Band, first select your case size, then select your band size. Sport Bands only come with one size in the box.


    If you choose a Solo Loop band, you’ll need to use the sizing guide to find your exact size. When you shop for Solo Loop bands, there are step-by-step instructions to help you measure your wrist using a printable tool or household objects so you can find the correct size.


  • You can pair any case with almost any band in the Apple Watch Studio. Once you’ve created a combination you like, you can save it and then create others to compare.
  • The GPS + Cellular model allows you to stay connected to the people and information you care about with just your Apple Watch. With a mobile data plan you can send and receive text messages, answer phone calls, receive notifications, and stream Apple Music and Apple Podcasts without needing your iPhone nearby.

    With the GPS model, you must be connected to your iPhone via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi to send and receive text messages, answer phone calls and receive notifications. The built-in GPS works independently of your iPhone for distance, pace and route mapping in workouts.
