Apple Watch: identifying your connected watch model

Since its launch in 2015, the design of the Apple Watch has hardly changed. It is very difficult to distinguish one model from another. This can be a problem, especially if you want to buy a second-hand connected watch. However, with a few tricks, it is quite easy to identify an Apple Watch model.

Recognize your Apple Watch model thanks to the number engraved on the back of the dial

The Apple brand attaches great importance to the design of its products. Minimalist, the Apple Watch is pure and universal. It passes the modes and generations without taking a wrinkle. This is undoubtedly the main reason for its success.

However, with each new product range, the external changes are discreet. We note especially the appearance of a larger screen from the series 4. The dial goes from 38 to 40 mm for the small model. Only a trained eye will be able to differentiate an older model.

But rest assured, each Apple Watch model has an engraving on the back of the case. There are various information such as the size of the case in millimeters, the serial number and the material used for the case.

Each Apple Watch has a digital crown also called Digital Crown. It is possible to know if your watch has an eSIM just by looking at the digital crown. Indeed, on the models called Cellular, the latter is topped by a circle or a red dot.
