You love the look of the new Apple Watch Series 3, but for some reason that red crown on the cellular model is rubbing you the wrong way...

Or maybe you have an Apple Watch Series 2 and you'd like to add a red crown!

WatchDots are known as the original digital crown and side button style accessory for your Apple Watch, allowing you to add custom colors that match or or contrast your Apple Watch's band color.

With these little dots/stickers that are made for everyday wear, you can truly customize and accessorize your Apple Watch to fit your everyday style and personality.

Here's how you can hide or add the red digital crown dot to your Apple Watch!


WatchDots are little accessories for your Apple Watch that are the true combination of fashion and technology. These little precision cut dots are designed to fit on both the Digital Crown and side button using a specialized die cutting process.

These American-made Apple Watch accessories are designed for everyday wear and can last through a variety of different weather conditions. The dots are made from a durable, commercial-grade vinyl that not only has UV protection (they won't fade due to exposure to sunlight) but are also pressure sensitive, with its adhesive only getting stronger over time.

The best part about WatchDots? The color selection! You can choose from red, black, white, midnight, orange, antique, fog, walnut, yellow, blue, green, pink, gold, magenta, scuba, and royal blue.

You can pick up your WatchDots in sets of 3 for $9.99.
