Apple makes it easier for watch users with larger wrists

That iThingy You're Wearing
August 14, 2015

Apple has just introduced some new Apple Watch band options for users with larger wrists.

First up, just for the 42mm Apple Watch Sport Band, there is a new L/XL band option that can fit wrists up to 245mm. It’s available in black with a stainless steel pin or white and costs the same $49 as the other Sport Bands.

You can order the band from Apple’s online store or pick-up one at your nearest Apple Store now.


The new kit can increase the Link Bracelet for wrists up to 245mm wide.

Also unveiled today is a new kit to enlarge the size of the Link Bracelet. The $49 kit can increase the size of the band to fit wrists up to 245mm. Orders placed today for the kit will arrive starting later this month.


The Modern Buckle is finally available to purchase by itself.

Finally, for the first time, Apple has begun to allow buyers to purchase a standalone 38mm Modern Buckle. It costs $249 and is available in a small, medium, or large version. Buyers can select from a brown, black, pink, or blue version. Online orders will begin to ship later this month.

Watch prices range from $349 for the 38mm Sport model to $17,000 for the most expensive 18-karat gold Apple Watch Edition.

A mid-range Apple Watch collection, with a sapphire crystal and stainless steel exterior, ranges from $549 to $1,099. Apple also offers a number of other additional bands for the watch.

You’ll need an iPhone 5 or later to interact with the device.

The first online watch orders began to arrive in late April, and the device hit Apple Stores in June. Best Buy began to stock a number of watch options earlier this month.
