After the iPhone, Apple Watch Series is the bestseller by the Cupertino-based giant. These watches come in all colors and sizes and luckily allow you to swap bands/straps to give a personalized touch to the watch. Though the legendary Apple Watch design is suitable for both Men and Women, we have found an awful lack of information on the accessories for the latter.
Apple Watch Bands for Women are in abundance in all shapes and sizes. There are premium Designer bands that cost more than the watch itself, leather and bracelet straps for party lovers, and sporty, sweat-proof bands for sports enthusiasts.
This post is written by focusing primarily on Women. We have made sure that the straps are of high quality, cost-effective if possible, and are stylish in looks. Surely, you will find an option that suits your budget and wrist size. There’s a brief buyer’s guide below that would help you find the ideal strap for your Apple Watch.
From the original Apple Watch to the latest Apple Watch Series 6, the mechanism to swap bands has remained the same.
However, the company released different size options for nearly all its watches to capture a universal audience. There were two size options from series 1 till 3: 38mm and 42 mm. Later, the company decided to ditch the combination and just like a bigger iPhone, released the watch series 4 till 6 in 40mm and 44mm size option. Sizing matches should be the first thing to consider when you are out looking for a compatible third-party band for an Apple Watch. The mismatch of band size and the width of the connection point would end up in frustration.
The second factor would be the size of the wrist. As women tend to have a thin/slender/or petite wrist, the strap length should not be oversized otherwise it would look ugly. Generally, small wrist size is between 5 – 6.5 inches and a large wrist is between 7 – 8.5 inches. Measure the circumference of your wrist by wrapping a paper around it and measuring the length between where one end of the paper meets the other end.
Apart from these two factors, you should also look for multiple colors and finishes. Usually, feminine straps have several color options, so you would not have a hard time finding the color of your preference.
