Yesterday, at its Far Out event, Apple presented three new smart watches – the the new Watch SE, Watch episode 8and Watch Ultra. Along with them, Apple announced new straps for the Ultra model – Trail Loop, Alpine Loop and Ocean Band.
Apple Watch Ultra
With a case size of 49 mm, the Apple Watch Ultra is the largest smartwatch from the Cupertino-based tech giant. But that doesn’t mean the three straps mentioned above can’t be used with some older Apple Watches, as Apple says they’re also compatible with 44mm and 45mm Apple Watches. Since there’s no mention of smaller case sizes, it’s safe to assume that the 49mm Watch Ultra straps aren’t compatible with them.
However, if you have a 45mm band designed for a non-Ultra model, you can use it with the Apple Watch Ultra, as Apple says 45mm bands fit 42, 44 and 49mm cases.
The Apple Watch Ultra and its bands are now available for purchase through Apple’s website. You can read our Apple Watch Ultra announcement here to learn more about it and the new Watch SE and Watch Series 8, and head here to check their pricing in key markets.
