Locate the small button on the underside of the watch. This is located just below and to the right of the digital crown. The button is recessed, so you may need to use a toothpick, paperclip, or other small, pointed object to depress it. Press and hold down the button for about 3 seconds. The band should now slide out of the watch case. If it does not, ensure that you are pressing and holding the button in correctly.
Press and hold the button
Assuming you want to remove your watch band to clean it or swap it out for a different one, here’s how. First, make sure your Watch is turned off. Second,find the small button on the underside of the watch near the band connector. Press and hold that button while simultaneously sliding the band across and off the watch.

If you need to put apple watch back on, just reverse these steps.
