How to identify your Apple Watch model and series numbers

Learn how to easily identify your Apple Watch model and series numbers with this comprehensive guide, including images and step-by-step instructions.

Looking At Apple Watch

If you’re trying to troubleshoot a problem with your Apple Watch or are shopping for a band, you’ll want to know the series number or model number of your wearable. Currently, there are twelve models of Apple Watch (1st generation aka Series 0), Apple Watch Series 1 to Series 8, Apple Watch SE (1st and 2nd generations), and the Apple Watch Ultra. Each series comes with its own set of model numbers.

You can quickly see both the model and series numbers of your Apple Watch on the back of its box. However, if you do not have the box handy, you can follow these methods below to identify your specific device information.

Find your Apple Watch model number

  1. Open the Watch app on your iPhone and go to the My Watch tab at the bottom.
  2. Select General > About.
  3. Go down to Model Number, and if it (part number) starts with the letter M, tap it. You’ll then see your five-digit model number beginning with the letter A.
