The Apple Watch is now friendlier to those with giant wrists

Apple has rolled out more bracelet and band options for those who can’t stretch the Apple Watch around their meaty wrists.

The company is hawking a new bracelet kit that offers six additional links for wrists larger than 205mm around.

Since the bracelet is designed to open with the click of a button, wearers will be able to install the new links without the need for special tools.

Naturally, it’ll come at a cost: Apple is charging £39/$49 for the kit.

The firm has also launched (via SlashGear) a pair of new Apple Watch Sport Bands for those who want to use an Apple Watch as part of their workout regime.

As well as the S/M and M/L bands, Apple is now selling a L/XL band (140-210 mm) and an XL band for those with 160-245mm wrists.

Those bands also cost £39/$49, but you’ll get two for your troubles. Unfortunately the range of colours is limited to black and white right now.
