How nice to have a 3D printer :)

I wanted to know how the fit would be on my wrist with my SS and Ultra together.
After some CAD drawing and 3D printing work, I was happy, even my old band fitted perfect.

Print one yourself or help someone else :)

There is of course a def difference, en for my wrist is at the edge of what is possible.
Mind you because of the lugs of the band sticking out from the sides of the watch, it looks bigger, but using the same kind of band like on my SS it should work fine :)

Really impressive work! It’s also great to see our existing bands will integrate very well with the ultra. I have a decent collection over the years of bands that I don’t want to part with, which was my original hesitation with going bigger.

Wow that’s pretty dang cool! Thanks for sharing. I think my wrist is ~19cm, contemplating the Ultra still while also telling myself the s7 is just fine…having 2x battery is not “needed” as I stay home and such but it would be quite an improvement for times I don’t always remember to charge it morning AND night...

Yeah. Same. But I'll wait until my watch dies before upgrading. Nice job on the 3D printing.
Good Morning!
We engineer our products to last a long time, so my guess is you'll be getting our brand new Apple Watch Ultra 4th generation in a few years. We're already working on it. Cheers,

Nice username, lol. And yes, Apple's stupid junk lasts forever. I still have a 2010 MacBook Pro that's trucking along. I either update when the device dies or when it stops getting updates.

Thanks for the stl I printed it and really think I am going to like the new size. Don't have a resin printer so mine didn't turn out nearly as nice as yours but still did the job.
