With each new release, apple watch gets better and more feature-packed. As a result, it can be hard to keep track of which model you have, especially if you’ve had your watch for a while. In this article, we’ll show you how to quickly and easily identify which apple watch you have.
How to tell what series apple watch is
Apple Watch models are identified by the model number on the back case. Here’s how to find it. If you have apple watch series 3 or later, you can also find the model number in the Settings app: Tap Settings > General > About > Model. If you have an Apple Watch Series 2 or earlier, use this article to identify your model.
Check your watch’s settings
If you’re not sure which model Apple Watch you have, you can find out by checking the Settings app on your watch.tap general > About, and look for the Model field.
If your watch has watchOS 6 or later, you can also see the model in the About screen in the Settings app on your iPhone: open the Settings app, tap General > About, and scroll down to see Model.
Check your watch’s back
To find your watch’s model number, keep your watch face down and look at the back of your watch. On the back of all Apple Watch models, you’ll find a model number that looks something like “A1534.”
The first two letters of this model number tell you which generation of watch you have:
-The “A” in the sample model number above indicates that it’s a Series 1 watch.
-If your model number starts with “B,” it’s a Series 2 watch.
-If it starts with an “M” (like in “M/LL42”), it’s a Nike+ or Hermes Series 2 watch.
The bottom line is that if you have an Apple Watch Series 1, 2, or 3, you can update to watchOS 7. If you have an Apple Watch Series 4 or 5, you can update to watchOS 6.
