Solo Loop Now Available in Smaller Sizes for 44mm/45mm Apple Watch Models

Following the introduction of the Apple Watch Series 8 and second-generation Apple Watch SE, Apple has made the Solo Loop and Braided Solo Loop bands available in smaller Size 1 through Size 3 options for all 44mm and 45mm Apple Watch models.

Apple Watch Solo Loops
44mm and 45mm Apple Watch models include the Series 8, Series 7, Series 6, and both generations of the Apple Watch SE.

Previously, the Solo Loop and Braided Solo Loop were only available in Size 4 through Size 12 for 44mm and 45mm Apple Watch models, but now customers who purchase a larger Apple Watch but have a smaller wrist have more suitable band sizes to choose from. Size 9 through Size 12 are still not an option for 40mm and 41mm Apple Watch models.

Solo Loops and Braided Solo Loops are priced at $49 and $99, respectively. Both bands feature a stretchable design without a clasp for a more precise fit.

(Thanks, Joe Mislansky!)

I love the idea of the braided solo loop, but after having two replaced due to stretch, I’m going to try something else. I’ve gone down a size each time, and after a few months, the watch is so loose it’s distracting.

It’s about time. However even those with more regular to large wrists, the loops stretch over time and become loose
Yeah, if you size it to be a little snug so the sensors work properly, the band stretches out and by about 9 months, it's loose.

I see they brought the black solo loop back. Hope it’s here to stay.

Good that new size options are available. Personally I don't like the Solo loop.
