How to clean your Apple Watch Band




Whether you use your Apple Watch for working out, keeping track of your health, or maximizing productivity in your daily activities, it is important to keep your band sanitized and dry.


Aside from spreading germs and bacteria, wearing an unclean Apple Watch band may cause skin irritation if you have allergies or sensitive skin.


Get to know tips on how to clean different types of Apple Watch bands and tips to avoid skin irritation. Please note that This cleaning information applies to Apple-branded bands only. For all other bands, follow the care information provided with the band.



How to clean your Leather band




  1. Remove the band from your Apple Watch before cleaning.

  2. Wipe the leather portions of the bands clean with a nonabrasive, lint-free cloth. If necessary, lightly dampen the cloth with fresh water.*

  3. Don’t soak leather bands in water. The leather bands aren't water resistant.

  4. Let the band air dry thoroughly before you attach it to your Apple Watch. Don’t store leather bands in direct sunlight, at high temperatures, or in high humidity.


*Leather usually takes on a patina after normal wear. The leather might also change color due to exposure to substances like perfume, insect repellent, oil, lotion, or dyed materials like denim. The Apple Watch and band colors may vary or fade over time.



How to clean for all other bands, buckles, and closures




  1. Remove the band from your Apple Watch before cleaning.

  2. Wipe the band clean with a nonabrasive, lint-free cloth. If necessary, lightly dampen the cloth with fresh water.

  3. Dry the band with a nonabrasive, lint-free cloth before you attach it to your Apple Watch.



Tips to avoid skin irritation, or if you have allergies or skin sensitivities




1. Keep your Apple Watch and bands—as well as your skin—clean and dry to maximize comfort and prevent long-term damage to the watch.

This is especially important after workouts or exposure to liquids such as sweat, soap, sunscreen, and lotions that can cause skin irritations.


2. Wear your Apple Watch with the right fit—not too tight, not too loose, and with room for your skin to breathe—to keep you comfortable.


3. Pick the right Apple Watch and band. If you have known allergies or sensitivities to substances like metals or plastics, check the materials in each Apple Watch and band.


4. For best results, use only Apple branded or Apple authorized bands.

Many third parties make accessory bands for Apple Watch. Such bands may not fit properly, may interfere with the Apple Watch Wrist Detect feature, may contain materials that cause skin sensitivities or other health concerns, and may even damage Apple Watch.
