It is easy to change the look of your Apple Watch. After all, you only need to swap watch bands to match your personality, color and style. But if you are looking for a simple watch strap, the best one for you is the Solo Loop band. It has no clasp and only comes in solid colors.
But the thing is, while the design of this watch band is simple, it is also the most complicated Apple Watch band to purchase. Why? That is because you have to pick a specific size for your Apple Watch model. The Solo Loop band stretches almost like a rubber band. The back of this strap has a slight indented that helps the Solo Loop to feel even thinner.
The Solo Loop is one of the thinnest and lightest Apple Watch bands in the market. It is also the most secure watch strap, since it has no clasp. So, there is zero chance that you will catch it on something and that the Apple Watch strap opens up and falls off of your wrist. This watch band also holds your Apple Watch in place. The Solo Loop is not going to slide up and down your wrist.
How To Change Your Apple Watch Band
- First, place your Apple Watch face down over a clean surface. You can use a lint-free, microfiber cloth or soft, padded mat.
- Next, hold down the watch band release button. Then, slide the band across to remove it from your wearable device.
- If the watch band does not slide out, you just need to press the band release button again. Make sure that you hold it down.
- Next, make sure that the text on the watch band is facing you. After that, slide the Solo Loop band in until you feel and hear a click.
To put your Solo Loop on your wrist or take it off, you simply pull from the bottom of the band to stretch it over your wrist. Keep in mind that you should never force the watch band into the slot. If you do not feel or hear a click, slide the band to the left, then to the right.
If the watch strap is installed properly, it will not freely slide until you hold down the band release button. If the watch band still does not lock, you should center the band. Then, push it into place. After that, carefully wiggle the watch band up and down. Do not wear your Apple Watch if the watch band is sliding.
How To Clean Your Solo Loop Band
Solo Loop band is made out of silicone, which is among the easiest materials to clean. As such, it is easy to clean your Solo Loop, especially if you follow these two steps:
- First, wipe your Solo Loop band clean with a non abrasive, lint-free cloth. If you think it is necessary, you can lightly dampen the cloth with fresh water. You can also use mild hypoallergenic hand soap for cleaning.
- After that, dry the band with a non abrasive, lint-free cloth before you attach it to your Apple Watch.
