Points of consideration while choosing the strap:

  1. Measure your wrist: Make sure that you measure your wrist or the particular person’s wrist for whom you want to buy the Apple watch. You can measure the wrist by using a measuring tape. If you don’t have a measuring tape then you can use a piece of paper. You can cut the paper into a strip and after that you can wrap it around the wrist where you use to wear your watch. Then by using a pen you can mark the paper strip where it extends over. But remember one thing while doing these measurements you have to make sure that the string, measurement tape or the paper fits on your wrist tightly, so that you get the accurate measurement. And if you are still not sure about the size of your wrist, then you can go for a slightly larger strap; because it’s easy to take links out of a larger strap than it would be from a smaller strap.


  1. Different sizes: The apple company offers various Apple watches with various band sizes. The people with smaller wrist can opt for the smaller Apple watch options while the people with larger wrists can go with the larger models. Various Apple watch models are designed to fit the people with various wrist size.



  1. Highlights on the compatibility: Compatibility is one of the most significant factor when it comes to buy an apple watch strap. You should make sure that the strap which you are choosing is compatible with the watch. If it doesn’t match your watch then it would not look good and also would not fit properly. That is why compatibility of the strap with the watch should be considered before buying the straps.

While watches with metal bracelets or leather straps are perfect for formal occasions, simple plain colored straps can be the suitable one for various occasions. Also, you can purchase a strap with interesting texture or pattern; which can be little more fancy.

Branded straps come with higher quality and durability than the third party brands. When the brand produces the straps they control every aspect of the production such as the quality of the material used in the product and the cost of the product. On the other hand, the third party straps are made in the companies who don’t make apple watches. It means they will not provide you the same quality product which you can get from the watch company.
