The Apple Watch is a great invention that’s worn on the wrists of many people from all over the world. It’s a really useful, sleek-looking device that does a lot more than just show the time. Alongside the Apple Watch, you will also have a watch band. The watch band is one of the most important parts of the device – even though it’s not at the device’s main core. It still heavily influences the looks of the device and, consequently, the look of your overall style as you carry the Apple Watch.
However, in some cases, you may need to change the watch band of your Apple Watch Series 4 – 6 device - with another. Perhaps the watch band will get dirty, discolored – or perhaps it even may snap. The good thing is that Apple has made the process of changing the damaged watch band easy and simple to understand. You can change the watch band very quickly, no matter who you are – and you don’t even need any expensive equipment to do this. This article will show you the exact steps that you need to take to go through this process easily and effectively, without damaging the device in any way.
- The first thing to do is to put your Apple Watch on a soft, dry cloth. This will make sure that you don’t cause any scratches inadvertently, and it will make the process simpler and easier by giving you an area of focus.
- If there is a link bracelet at hand, then you can click the quick-release button and the watch band will get separated in two. While holding the quick-release button, slide the watch band and pull it out completely. This entire process can last up to no more than a minute. And if you fail to pull the watch band out – then re-click the quick-release button and hold it clicked – as you once again try to pull out the rest of the watch band.
- Finally, with the Apple Watch facing up (meaning you can read the text on the device), slide the new Apple watch band in. As you do this, you will soon hear a click. What this means is that the watch band is in place and you can begin to use your device.
Things are a bit different if you have a braided solo loop or a regular solo loop. It’s simple – all you need to do is to stretch the band from the bottom over your list – to put it on or take it out. The Milanese Loop is an outstanding design for the Apple Watch – and it’s very elegant to see and wear. This watch band underwent a complete redesign in 2018, which simplified things when it comes to taking out the watch band and replacing it with a new one. Just slide the magnetic closure through the lug, and the band will be opened.
The Apple Watch 4-6 series were designed to be convenient and easy to use. It would hold no value if Apple designed the device to make things difficult – so that people couldn’t replace the watch band easily. Apple took the smart route and imbued its Apple Watch devices with simple, convenient, and easy to understand designs.
So, it comes as no surprise that you will be easily able to change the Apple Watch band in the 4 – 6 series, in a matter of minutes or even less. We would place a small note here urging you to use an appropriate watch band for your particular Apple Watch device. Otherwise, the band may not fit the device properly and you will need to purchase another, compatible Apple Watch band. Other than that, you can feel free to change the Apple Watch Series 4 – 6 band for however many times you’d like.
