I bought a series 4 Apple Watch and I love it! This time I opted for a Velcro sports band, which I do not like. Can I exchange just the band?

No you can’t just exchange the band. You’ll have to return the entire watch or just buy another band.

If you are polite they’ll probably let you as long as you are in the fourteen day exchange window

yeah what's up with the smaller velcro straps? BS they are not the same as the Series 3 straps. I know why they changed them tho, they are easier to put on if easy to get over your palm.

I do not know why apple didnt decide to package the watch in 2 separate box’s this year especially since they package them in two box’s now in the packaging. this would give them more flexibility on the sales side and allow people to swap bands if needed with out making the whole watch a returned item just for a band change how many times have you been looking for a watch but the one they had instock had the wrong band separated box’s would solve that and increase over all sales on the units with slower selling bands.

The sport bands are also not as thick either and are thinner, which I kind of like actually. Not entirely sure why Apple redesigned the sport band, unless they just wanted to make a change being the Series 4 changed as well.
