The lugs can solely be utilized in third-celebration watch bands that conform to Apple’s Band Design Tips commonplace for its smartwatch. The official tips from Apple don’t simply specify the size of the watch band, but in addition requirements of the fabric getting used, the performance and sturdiness.

“Correct meeting of the lug is important to make sure your band securely attaches to the Apple Watch. Improper meeting might end in injury to the Apple Watch,” notes Apple in its lug meeting tips.
