The Apple Watch Collections

By Marc Saltzman

Apple Watch comes in two different sizes: 38 millimeters (about 1.5 inches) and 42 millimeters (roughly 1.65 inches). This measurement is from the top of the Apple Watch screen to the bottom and not diagonally — like how most screens from consumer electronics are measured (such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, and TVs).

There are three Apple Watch collections and a few accessories you can purchase to customize your watch. Check here for a more extensive discussion about the Apple Watch collections — for when you need to convince a friend or coworker that he or she needs an Apple Watch.


The three Apple Watch collections are:

  • Apple Sport Watch: This is for those who want something lightweight yet durable. It’s made from anodized aluminum and with sweat-resistant fluoroelastomer (synthesized rubber) in five sporty colors: white, black, blue, green, and pink.

  • Apple Watch: This is a little more expensive because it comes in highly polished stainless steel or matted black stainless steel and offers a variety of band choices: leather, fluoroelastomer, Milanese loop, and link bracelet.

  • Apple Watch Edition: This is for those who appreciate — and can afford — luxury. The retina display is protected by polished sapphire crystal and accessory choices include a number of unique straps and bands with 18-karat gold clasps, buckles, or pins.
