Introduction: How to Change Your Apple Watch Band

The Apple Watch is a must-have accessory for anyone who has an iPhone.

And with the smart wearable device’s popularity still on the rise, people are finding more ways on how to match their Apple Watch with what they are wearing or what event they are going to. Now that people want the high-tech time piece on their wrists all of the time, they get more Apple Watch bands according to their needs.

Say you have Classic Buckle on your Apple Watch but have decided to live a more active lifestyle. You then purchase a Sport Band so as not to ruin your Classic Buckle with sweat and to match your attire. But once you do have your separate Apple Watch band with you, how exactly will you put it on the device itself?

In this Instructable, I will show you how it is to remove your Apple Watch’s band and replace it with another one. A relatively simple and easy task to do which will not involve any tools, nor will it take too much of your time.

Let us begin!

Step 1: What You Will Need and Background

For the very simple process of replacing your Apple Watch band, you will need the following items:

  1. Your Apple watch ©
  2. A replacement apple watch band

Just as it was mentioned back during the Apple Watch debut, the device is super easy in terms of removing and replacing straps into the device – that is why you will require nothing more than the watch itself and the separate band which you will attach to the device later on. Apple has made replacing the watch bands very simple so as to make the lives of the consumers really easy.

Step 2: Getting Started

Set your Apple Watch before you in preparation for the removal of its bands.

You would also want to take your separate Apple Watch band and carefully remove it from its box and container.

Step 3: Removing the Current Apple Watch Bands

Now that you have all of the items prepared, it’s time to remove the bands that are currently attached to your Apple Watch. What you will need to do is to look at the other side of the Apple Watch.

You will be able to immediately see that there are two buttons at either side of the watch where the bands meet the device.

In order to release a band, you will need to hold down on a button. Holding down on the button, slide the band that is on the same side of the button sideward off of the watch.

Repeat this process with the other side.

Step 4: Putting on the Other Band on Your Apple Watch

Now that your Apple Watch doesn’t have any bands attached to it, you can now slide in the other desired Apple Watch band.

With the other side of the watch still facing you, slide the longer band with the adjustment holes on the bottom side of the Apple Watch and the shorter band with the loop on the top side of the device.

When it is lined up properly, it should click into place.

Step 5: Inspection and Completion

Once you have the bands in, double check to see if you have the bands on properly. As earlier mentioned, the bands should click into place, letting you know that you have put them on properly.

You’re Done! You have just replaced the bands of your Apple Watch! You can now enjoy your
