Once again there was again a big Apple event in California. On September 12th, Apple introduces new products in the new “Steve Jobs Theater”. Including the completely new iPhone X, the iPhone 8 (a facelift of the iPhone 7) and finally the completely unleashed Apple Watch Series 3 with its own LTE module.
For us, of course, especially interesting: Are the watch straps that have already been used for Apple Watch Series 1 and Series 2 continue to be usable with the Apple Watch Series 3?
The answer is clearly “yes“.
Changes to the housing?
At first glance, we see that the housing of the Apple Watch has not changed much. The digital crown of the Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE module is now red and the housing has become 0.25mm thicker on the data sheet. Hardly a significant difference.
Apple’s original bands also compatible
Furthermore, Apple offers the newly introduced “Sport Loop” straps individually for purchase online. There is no option to select the Apple Watch generation, which proves the compatability of the bands.
Now this means that all of the bands you find in our online shop are compatible with all Apple Watches Series 1, Series 2 and Apple Watch Series 3 models.
