How to easily re-size the link bracelet on your Apple Watch

Apple made it incredibly easy to swap bands on your Apple Watch, but they also made it amazingly simple to re-size the Link Bracelet. Almost anyone can do it on their own, and in only a few minutes. No jeweler or special tools required!

How to remove links on your Apple Watch bracelet

  1. Remove your Apple Watch.
  2. Find one of the six links on the twelve o'clock or six o'clock side of your Apple Watch that has a button on the bottom.
  3. Press the button and pull on the band to separate the link.
  4. Press the button on the next link in the series to remove the previous link entirely.

Repeat the process, removing links evenly from both sides, until you achieve the perfect fit. In our experience, a little snug is better than a little loose.
