One of the straps with which we have to be most careful with the sizes are the Solo Loop and the braided Solo Loop, since it is a ring of a set length. And this is where the new case size of the Apple Watch Ultra comes into play. A size that varies the total length of the strap And something to keep in mind.
A small size difference with the Apple Watch Ultra
Without being able to talk about all the strap sizes that Apple sells, I can say that the most common sizes, such as 8, 7 or 6, are larger on the Apple Watch Ultra. How much bigger? Just one size. Since the first braided Solo Loops came out, I’ve worn one —several, in fact— and they’ve always been all size 7.
Now, with the arrival of the Apple Watch Ultra, I have had to make the leap to a 6 to prevent the watch from being too loose. If we look at the photo below, we will see that the increase in size of the watch case exactly compensates for the reduction in strap size between the two sizes.
Without a doubt, the best way to make sure that a certain strap will fit us well is go to an Apple Store to try it. Without wanting to recommend a size for anyone in particular here, it is true that the size of the watch case, especially with the jump from the 45 mm of the Apple Watch Series 8 to the 49 mm of the Apple Watch Ultra, is something that we must have consider.
In other straps all we have to consider is the width, which makes compatibility between different models much easier. On the Solo Loop, however, there is a little extra consideration. That yes, once we have hit our size we will be before, in my opinion one of the most comfortable straps with which to wear our Apple Watch.
