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 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.
  • Apple Watch Series 7, Apple Watch SE, and Apple Watch Series 3 require an iPhone 6s or later with iOS 15 or later. Apple Watch is only compatible with iPhone.

    Features are subject to change. Some features, applications, and services may not be available in all regions or all languages.

  • Apple Trade In makes it easy to get credit toward the purchase of your next Apple Watch. Simply answer a few questions about your device. Based on what you tell us, we’ll provide an estimated trade-in value. If you pay monthly, we’ll apply the value as an instant credit to lower the monthly payments of your new Apple Watch. If you pay in full, we’ll credit your payment method after we receive your trade-in. If it’s not eligible for credit, you can recycle it for free.

    Once you accept the estimated trade-in value quote, we'll ship you a free trade-in kit. When we receive your trade-in, we'll verify its condition, and if everything checks out, your trade-in will be complete. If your device doesn’t match the condition you described, you’ll receive an email with next steps. If you paid in full and the value of your device was more than the cost of your new Apple Watch, you’ll receive an Apple Gift Card by email with the remaining amount.

    The online trade-in process generally takes 2–3 weeks.

    You can also trade in your device at an Apple Store at the point of purchase. However, the trade-in value in a store may be different from the estimated trade-in value you received online.
