Which Apple Watch Do You Have? How to Identify Your Apple Watch

How to identify which Apple Watch you have.

BY SERIAL NUMBER

The easiest way to determine exactly which Apple Watch you have is to look up its serial number on Apple’s Check Coverage page. Enter your serial number, and Apple will display the series, model and band size.

Find your serial number on the back of your Apple Watch or in the band slot (you’ll need to remove the band).

Alternatively, you can open the SETTINGS app on your Apple Watch and browse to GENERAL>ABOUT, then scroll down to SERIAL NUMBER.

You can also open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone and browse to WATCH > GENERAL > ABOUT, then scroll down to SERIAL NUMBER.

BY ORDER NUMBER

Open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone and browse to WATCH > GENERAL > ABOUT. Scroll down to MODEL. The first number displayed is the order number. It’s more specific than the model number. Reference the following to identify your Apple Watch.

BY MODEL NUMBER & BACK OF THE CASE

Open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone and browse to WATCH > GENERAL > ABOUT. Tap MODEL, then cross reference the model number (beginning with the letter “A”) below. Note that the model number won’t give you an exact match, since some variations share model numbers, but you can reference the back of the case to identify which version you have.

The back of the case lists the series, case size, case material, glass type, serial number, water resistance, GPS and cellular (LTE).
