Apple Stores will help you fit the new Solo and Braided Solo Loop band
What you need to know
- The new Solo Loop and Braided Solo Loop have hit Apple Stores.
- Each new band is offered in a number of sizes to perfectly fit your wrist.
- Stores are offering personalized shopping to make sure you find the right fit.
Reported by 9to5Mac, some Apple Stores are offering personalized sizing for those who are interested in purchasing one on the new Solo Loop or Braided Solo Loop bands for their Apple Watch.
In addition to the Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE both going on sale in Apple Stores today, some stores are also beginning to stock the new Solo Loop and Braided Solo Loop bands. These new bands come in a range of sizes made to fit perfectly around your wrist, so stores have a way of making sure that you get the right size.
According to the report, you can make an appointment at your local Apple Store to schedule a try-on. Apple is currently using single-use measurement tools, due to the pandemic, that ensure you get the right fit.
Employees seem to be recommending that people get a band two sizes smaller than what the guide recommends, and at least for Michael Steeber, the author behind 9to5Mac's coverage, that worked out perfectly for him.
If your local Apple Store is currently out of stock of the band you are looking for, you can order both new bands online. Ship times currently vary between the type, color, and size of the band that you need. Apple has provided the ability to print out its measurement tool at home so you can make sure to order the right size yourself.

(To counter that, I did it online using my own measuring tape and that gave me size 9, so the online tool might be more accurate)
