There is no denying that an Apple Watch Band adds style your smartwatch, and lets you make a differentiated statement. They Apple Watch Bands come in a wide variety of colors, styles, and sizes. In fact, choosing the one becomes an endeavor on its own.

There are times when the adjustable band is too large that it may fall off, and sometimes, it is so small that you need to re-adjust it.  Moreover, re-adjusting comes as a tough task, if you are not sure of how to do it.

So, regardless of how your Apple Watch Bands come to you, here is a quick guide on changing and adjusting them.

You can easily re-size the band according to your wrist size by removing the equal number of chain links from the band.

Here is how you can remove them:

Step 1

Place your Apple Watch Band upside down in the band adjustment tool and align the pin with the pin hole that is located on side of the band. Now, twist the handle towards the band until pin releases from it.

Step 2

Once you are done with the adjusting, insert them in the reverse order into the Apple Watch band.

Step 3

Now, place your Apple Watch back into the tool. Insert the handle’s pin back into the band and turn it in the inward direction so that your watch is completely back in place. But make sure you perform the process gently and don’t stress the band.
