Not only can you choose from a variety of different case materials and colors, but you can also switch out the straps to create a completely different look. In this article, we’ll show you how to change apple watch straps in just a few easy steps.
What You’ll Need
To change apple watch straps, you’ll need the following:
-A small, flat-head screwdriver
-A case opener or pry tool

If you don’t have a case opener or pry tool, you can use a butter knife or a similar tool. Just be careful not to damage your watch.
Step One: Remove the Old Strap
If you’re wearing a standard watch strap, press and hold the release button on the back of the watch. If you’re wearing a loop or herringbone strap, press and hold the release button on the underside of the strap.
With your thumb and forefinger, pinch the top of the watch case and pull it away from the bottom of the strap. If your fingers aren’t meeting in the middle, try reversing which hand is on top.
Swipe up from the bottom of the watch face to open Control Center, then tap Airplane Mode to turn it on.
Step Two: Attach the New Strap
