What materials are best for smaller wrists?

Finding the right material for your Apple Watch band isn’t just about durability when you have small wrists. You also need to consider the texture, flexibility, and weight. 

You want to go for soft, flexible, and lightweight materials for maximum comfort and easy adjusting. With that in mind, here are the best materials if you have a small wrist:


Soft leather is usually flexible and lightweight, so it wraps around small wrists easily and is comfortable for everyday wear. The bands also usually come with buckles or sports loop designs, and you can easily adjust them for the perfect fit. 

Stainless Steel

You don’t have to worry about this material being bulky or unforgiving when it comes to fitting. Stainless steel designs like the Milanese loops are actually flexible and light. The mesh that makes up the band also provides excellent ventilation for your wrists, and you can easily adjust it to your desired size. 


This material is also a great choice for small wrists because it is light and breathable. You can adjust it easily to find just the right fit for your tiny wrists. That’s why woven nylon is popularly used to make Sport loop bands.


If you’re looking for the perfect grip, Silicone is a great option. The soft, flexible material offers a snug, comfortable fit around your wrist. A great example is an elastic solo loop design made of interwoven silicone thread.

How do I correctly measure my wrist/band size?

For the perfect fitting, you need the right measurements. Think of it as getting your measurements taken for a tailored suit, but it is much simpler. You can measure your wrist right from home. You only need a tailor’s tape or a string and a standard straight ruler. 

Depending on what you have at hand, you can apply either of these two methods:

Method 1: Using a flexible tape measure.

  1. Place the metal tip (the 0 inch/cm mark) of the tailor’s tape at the center of your wrist and hold it there.
  2. Wrap the tape around your wrist and note where the tape crosses the metal tip. 
  3. The number at that point marks your wrist circumference, i.e., your wrist measurement.

Method 2: Using a string and a ruler.

  1. Place one end of the string at the center of your wrist and hold it in place.
  2. Wrap the string around your wrist and clearly mark where the string overlaps the starting point.
  3. Use a straight ruler to measure the length between the starting point and where you marked. 
  4. That length represents your wrist measurement.

Key things to note:

  • When measuring, place your hand on a flat surface. It should be facing up with the palm open.
  • Think of where you prefer wearing your watch and measure the appropriate section. It could be on the wrist bone or below it.
  • When wrapping the string or tailor’s tape around your wrists, ensure it’s a gentle hug around your wrist and not too tight.
  • Add about 13-25 mm (0.5-1.5 inches) to your wrist size for a snug fit or future adjustments.

How your wrist measurement determines your ideal band length and watch face size.

While your wrist circumference is unique, you won’t find an AppleWatch band specifically designed for your measurements unless you opt for a custom fit. Your size will normally fall within a certain range instead. For example, small wrists typically fall within the average range of 130-200 mm (roughly 5-7 inches). 

The recommended Apple Watch face size for small wrists within that range is between 38-41 mm, depending on your type of Apple watch. As for the band length, it depends on the band design.

Standard two-piece bands that attach on either side of your Apple Watch are usually measured as X/Y mm (e.g., 100/50 mm). X is the longer side, while Y is the shorter side with the buckle or clasp. 

For small wrists between 5 -5.9 inches (127-150 mm) or less, the band length can range from 95/55mm to 110/55mm or less.

For single-strap bands like the solo loop, you can subtract your Apple watch face size from your wrist measurement to find the band length you need to buy for the perfect fit. 

For example, let’s say your wrist circumference is 150mm and you have an Apple Watch measuring 40mm:

  1. Subtract the 40mm face size from your wrist measurement (150mm). 
  2. The difference, which is 110mm, is your ideal total band length.

How do I adjust an Apple Watch band for a better fit?

At times, adjusting your Apple Watch Band is the best way to find a perfect fit. How you go about this largely depends on the design and material of your Apple Watch band. Some watch bands come with adjustable designs that allow you to get a better fit easily. 

With our Crux Apple Watch Band, the elastic solo loop has a convenient gliding closure that allows you to adjust the length of the loop. So, even if the band stretches out over time, you can still resize it to the right fitting.

But in some cases, you may be forced to adjust the band’s design altogether. That’s why we offer a free adjustment tool with some of our linked or meshed metal band designs. You can use the free tool to remove a few links from the band and get the perfect size.
