Like all Apple devices, the Apple Watch is known for its sleek, minimalist design, which consists of a rectangular case with rounded edges, a single dial, and a single button.

To add personal style to the Watch, many different bands are available, from a rubberised “Sport Band,” to classic leather, to a stylish stainless steel wristband.

Now, with the Apple Watch Studio, Apple Watch owners can customise their devices before they even buy it.

What the Apple Watch Studio is

In the past, if you wanted to choose a unique band for your Apple Watch, you had to buy the watch and then pay for a new band separately, swapping it in for the wristband that came with the purchase. With the advent of the Apple Watch Studio, customers can now custom design a watch and band before they buy it.

The Apple Watch Studio can be used through the Apple Store app or on Apple’s website, and Apple will soon offer an in-person version of the studio at Apple Stores. Customers can choose from two case sizes (40 and 44 millimetres), four different case types, and four different types of band, which come in several colours.

All told, the Apple Watch Studio offers enough different combinations that you could create more than a thousand unique Apple Watches.
