Samsung developed its Galaxy Watch line of smartwatches with user-removable straps, but knowing the proper size is vital for those who want to do so. Customers can swap out the strap on their smartwatch for a variety of reasons. For some, it may be about style and matching their wearables with their attire, but others may replace their bands for usefulness, such as replacing leather straps with silicone or nylon straps when exercising.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch smartwatch line comes in a variety of sizes, and while the size of the watch should influence the size of the strap, this is not always the case. Although having differing case sizes, the Galaxy Watch 5, which is available in 40mm and 44mm sizes, and the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, which has a 45mm case, both use 20mm watch bands. The 20mm watch bands are also used by the Galaxy Watch 5 Golf Edition and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro Golf Edition.
Size Isn’t the Only Factor to Consider
The Galaxy Watch 4 (40mm and 44mm), Galaxy Watch 4 Classic (42mm and 46mm), Galaxy Watch 4 (41mm), Galaxy Watch Active 2 (40mm and 44mm), Galaxy Watch Active (40mm), and Galaxy Watch Active (41mm) are other versions that use 20mm watch straps (42mm). Individuals who possess the older Galaxy Watch 3 (45mm) and Galaxy Watch (46mm) models, on the other hand, utilise a separate 22mm band. Is it feasible to swap watch bands between various Galaxy Watch models because the band size is essentially the same?
However, size isn’t the only factor to consider. While the 20mm bands on the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic are compatible with the Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, not all Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro bands are compatible with the Galaxy Watch 4 series. Samsung expressly states that the $299 Metal Link Bracelet for the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is exclusively compatible with the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. Whether selecting a first-party or third-party band, customers should consider compatibility in addition to band width.
Another important consideration is the band’s size. Some bands, such as the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic Metal Link band, are available in numerous sizes to accommodate users with varied wrist sizes. A small or medium size band will fit a person with a small wrist better and more comfortably than a larger band. After taking all size concerns into account, the only things to consider when selecting a strap for the Galaxy Watch are choice and price.
