The serial number on the back of the Apple Watch

Some Apple Watch series, including Apple Watch Series 1 and later, have the serial number inside the band slot on the back of the Apple Watch. To see it, you need to remove the band, and check inside the Watch case.



However, on the original Apple Watch, the serial number is printed on the back of the watch, on the left side.

Other methods to check the Apple Watch serial number

  • Each Apple Watch box has the serial number printed on it. If you still have the original box of the Apple Watch, you can find the serial number on it.
  • If you kept the receipt for the Apple Watch, the serial number is also written on it.
  • If you log into iCloud.com, you can see the last four digits of your Apple Watch. Open ‘Account Settings’ > ‘My Devices’.

Note: If you are unable to see your serial number/model number using any of the methods listed above, you can contact Apple Support, and they can give you this information by providing them with your Apple ID.
