Apple Watch Band Size GuideUpdated 10 months ago

Can't figure out which size Nomad band you need for your Apple Watch? You've come to the right place.

To identify what Apple Watch you have, look for the series number on the back of the watch face. Alternatively, find the series number in the Apple Watch app on your iPhone under:

My Watch > General > About

Now that you know what Apple Watch you have, check out the chart below to figure out which size Nomad band you need.

  • Our 40mm/41mm bands are compatible with: 
    • Apple Watch 41mm, 40mm, 38mm (Series 1-9 and SE)
  • Our 45mm/49mm bands are compatible with: 
    • Apple Watch 49mm, 45mm, 44mm, and 42mm (Ultra & Ultra 2, Series 1-9, and SE)

For Apple Watch Series 4 and 5, Apple increased the size of the display of both the larger and smaller watch sizes from 42mm and 38mm, respectively, to 44mm and 40mm. Additionally, for Apple Watch Series 7 and beyond, Apple increased the size of the display of both the larger and smaller watch sizes from 44mm and 40mm, respectively, to 45mm and 41mm. Apple Watch Ultra and Ultra 2 both have 49mm displays. 

Although the overall display of the newer Apple Watches is larger, the area where the band attaches to the watch remains the same as the previous series for consistency in band compatibility. The sizes on our website now show '45mm/49mm' (which fit a 49mm, 45mm, 44mm, or 42mm Apple Watch) and '40mm/41mm' (which fit a 41mm, 40mm, or 38mm Apple Watch).
