*Never force a strap into the slot. If you’re having trouble removing or inserting a strap, hold down the strap release button again.

Fasten your strap

For optimal performance, your Apple Watch should fit closely on your wrist.

The back of your Apple Watch needs skin contact for features like wrist detection, haptic notifications, and the heart rate sensor. Wearing your Apple Watch with the right fit—not too tight, not too loose, and with room for your skin to breathe—keeps you comfortable and lets the sensors do their job. In addition, the sensors work only when you wear your Apple Watch on the top of your wrist.
