I just had my birthday and my Grandparents got me an Apple Watch Series 9 45mm with Cellular. The only thing though is I have always had a dark watch like black, etc and the one they got me is the Starlight color with a starlight sport band. It seems they bought it three weeks ago and I just got it so I am past the return period. All my bands are dark as well that I have. And I don't want to hurt their feelings either!

Does anyone have any personal experience in getting like a case for the watch that could change its color and any suggestions? Or is there like a skin that a watch can get? Or should I just not care and wear it with the color it is? They even got me the AppleCare+ for it so I know I will have it for at least 2 years!

Thank you all!

What a nice gift! Just wear it. I have a starlight watch, and I like the way it looks with dark bands.
