Apple Watch strap: How to measure your wrist Well, get out the flexible tape measure and size up that wrist. Hold the strip just below where your wrist bone sits and around where you would normally wear the band, wrap it around your wrist and line that up with the sizes of your Watch model.
Measuring Your Wrist For those who don't have a cloth tape measure, you can take a piece of string and wrap it around your wrist, using a standard flat measuring tape or ruler to measure the part of the string that fits around your wrist as a watch might.
38-40mm or 42-44mm Apple watch for women: the big question The buzzwords indeed seem to be small and pretty. So the obvious choice about Apple Watch size for women with a small and dainty wrist is stock: the 38mm one.

Apple indicates that the 44mm Watch is designed to fit 140- to 220-millimeter wrists.
Links can be removed or added with a release button, so it's not too tough to adjust the size once you purchase this band. Compatibility: 38mm, 40mm, 41mm, 42mm, 44mm, 45mm Apple Watches. Sizing, 40 and 41mm: Fits wrists sized 130mm to 180mm. Sizing, 44 and 45mm: Fits wrists sized 150mm to 200mm.
Sizing maxes out at 180mm, so if you have a wrist that's over seven inches, you'll want to go with a different band. The Modern Buckle is another band that's more for fashion than function, and it isn't designed to get wet. Compatibility: 38mm, 40mm, 41mm Apple Watches.
