    Band Compatibility
    You can match this band with any Apple Watch Series 4 case of the same size. It also works with all previous versions of Apple Watch, including Apple Watch Series 3. The 40mm band works with the 38mm case; the 44mm band works with the 42mm case.

  • Yes it does fit. I had to see it with my own eyes to believe it. I could not wrap my head around how this would work, but I had to see it for myself. I went into a store and put my existing band 38M on a 4 series 40M watch and it fits perfectly. No gaps and a good tight grip. Im sure it would not be a good move by Apple to make those of us who like to have multible bands to have to buy new ones. Thanks Apple! You’re awesome! I just wish apple would have left the gold alone. It would be nice to have a pure gold color or pure rose gold color instead of the newer pink gold.

  • Actually not so fast!!! The answer to this question is two-fold. Yes, the authentic watch bands sold by Apple will work. However, not all of the third party bands will work on the new 44mm watch. I have about 12 bands (leather, sport, and metal). All the sport and metal bands fit while none of the leather bands fit. I even purchased two new bands that were specifically marketed to 42-44mm watches. The sport band fit perfectly while only one strap of the leather band fit. I think it will be some time before companies start figuring this out or maybe I’m an anomaly. This is just my experience so you can make an informed decision.
