Along with the new Apple Watch Series, Apple has also launched the Solo Loop Bands. Unlike any other watch band, the Apple Watch Solo Loop Band does not consist of a buckle mechanism but has a slips design. So, the user can directly slip it on the wrist.
The stretchable design of the Solo Loop is available in various sizes for various wrist sizes. Unlike any other watch band, the user should get the right size of the new Solo Loop Watch Bands as the size will not adjust later because of the slip-on design. As the bands are stretchable, the bands can only slip-on or off and cannot be adjusted in size. The Solo Loop Bands are quite comfortable and much easy to wear.
Made up of liquid silicone rubber, the Apple Watch Solo Loop band is available in nine sizes. They also offer a guide for the size on the store page. Check out for some of the best tips to ensure that you have bought the right size of the Apple Watch Solo Loop Bands for your wrist.

With the help of scissors, cut the wrist sizing tool carefully
Place the cut shape on your wrist where you would be placing your watch face and warp the paper size too tightly on your wrist.

Check the number that the arrow will be pointing. It will be your band size. If the arrow points on a line, choose the smaller number to the line.
Use a Tape Measure
If you do not have a printer available to get Apple’s printable tool, you can even use a measuring tap to know your band size. Here is what you need to do.

Using a Ruler, Scissor, Pen, and Paper to measure
If you cannot print the measurement printed tool from Apple and even don’t have a measuring tape, you can check your band size with the help of a scissor, paper, pen, and a ruler.
Cut about one-half inch of paper. A narrow strip will be best
Wrap the strip to your wrist, in a comfortable way and not too tightly
With the help of a marker or pen, mark on the paper where the end of the strip will overlap with the other end of the strip
Lay the strip of the paper on a surface. Using a ruler, measure the distance from the start to the point that you have marked. Note the measurement
From the apple page of Household objects, go to the size guide window
