Today, along with the announcement of the Apple Watch Series 5, Apple has launched Apple Watch Studio, a way to combine watch cases and watch bands to order the exact Apple Watch Series 5 you want. It is now available on the Apple website and in the Apple Store app and will be available in Apple stores in the future.
Previously, Apple only let you adjust your watch by choosing from sets of cases and belts selected by Apple, and by purchasing individual straps to add afterwards. Apple did offer many different combos with band / band, but if you wanted the stainless steel watch with a link bracelet, for example, you should have bought them separately. With Apple Watch Studio you don't have to buy anything extra.
In addition, you can get a very good idea of what your custom combination will look like with the help of Apple's new online interface:
Once you've made your selections, click or tap the "I'm done" button on your screen and you can confirm the size of your case, choose whether you want a model with mobile connectivity, and check out. And if you don't want to use Apple Watch Studio, you don't have to – Apple still sells its Apple-designed casing / strap sets and individual straps.
In particular, it seems that Apple Watch Studio only lets you customize an Apple Watch Series 5 – you can't design a custom case / belt combination for an Apple Watch Series 3, now the oldest model that Apple sells. And Apple Watch Studio may not be available where you live – Apple says it's "not available in all countries, & # 39; But it is not specified which.
