FFF Apple Watchband Sizing Graphic

We use the same deceptively simple button-stud closure from our original invention, the Button-Stud Watchband, and then laser cut the Horween leather to fit you perfectly. Having the closure up on the side of your wrist instead of the bottom where it bangs into your laptop is “so comfortable you’ll forget you’re wearing it,” according to a dude from the internet.  

Please be sure to follow our sizing guide to select the correct hole.  Ideally, if you don't have an apple sport band, you could borrow a friend's who wears the same size watch (smaller, larger, or Ultra face is the only variable; the watch itself is the same size, the screen just gets bigger and bigger every version).

Please note: For the Apple Watch Ultra, we use adapters specifically for the Ultra that match the lines of the Ultra case, are matte stainless, and VERY closely match the titanium of the Ultra. Our standard is to pair them with a stainless steel button stud.  If you would like a black button stud just make a note in the special instruction section for your order. You will still need to use the standard apple sport band to size your custom length FFF band, we will not size based on a wrist measurement or any of the standard Ultra bands from Apple, so if you only have the ultra you'll need to borrow someone's sport band to get the correct size.

Engraving & Monogramming

In general, we are subtle with our personalized engravings & monograms. Smaller products receive smaller monograms, and any personalized messages are hidden where the owner can see them but they are not 'out in the open' whenever possible. If you have specific preferences for any customized engravings, make a note in the special instructions section after selecting your options and we'll contact you to verify after your order.

Product Dimensions

Band width of 24 or 26mm, depending on size of watch, with a taper moving to 80% width in the middle. Length depends on your wrist size.

What Kind of Leather Does FFF Use? What's this Chromexcel/Veg Tan/HF stuff instead of just leather color? Where are your products made?

We make everything by hand in Orlando. 

As to the leathers we use: The super short answer is Horween Leathers in Chicago, and because we're leather geeks we want you to know exactly what you're getting--it's so much more than just the color of the leather.

Don't forget that leather stretches

I really love the look and the feel of this watch back, but I forgot that as leather wears in, it stretches a little. After about a week of wear, the leather is softer and more supple, but it's also about a "half size" looser. I wish I had remembered that and order one that is one notch hole smaller. It would have been tighter to begin with (maybe even annoying so), but I think that in the long run, once it wears it, it would be a better fit.

Brilliant customer service

I’ve been buying these bands for years, almost as long as I’ve gotten apple’s watches. Quality is unfaltering. You get exactly what you pay for. The product is perfect. And the customer service is proactive and really nice.

absolutely great owner! please read!

absolutely great owner! please read!
I honestly didn’t expect to meet such a generous person. i’m gonna try & keep this short, i pretty much ordered the wrong size twice! one was too tight and one was too loose! i regrettably used my nike apple watch band to size them because i threw away my original sport apple band. i thought to myself the nike watch band is a close enough size guide. well it wasn’t and thankfully after sending emails back & fourth. The owner of form function form decided to send me the 3 other sizes without having me pay anything or doing an exchange! 😳 after reading other people’s reviews of how the size feels too tight i am relieved i went to form function form and dealt with a awesome person who cared about my genuine experience with how the watch band feels on my wrist. i am very sorry for making it a hard time to email you constantly 😅. The 2nd fit was the better choice all along haha. here are 2 photos of the what the leather russet looks like, oh and i forgot to mention. the laser odor that arrives with the band goes away. it’s pretty strong at first but it goes away and honestly the laser smell definitely makes the leather feel more authentic as well! (edit: sorry for keeping this long haha)

Amazing experience and band

I ordered the black leather Apple Watch band and unfortunately the size was too small. For some reason my size was a bit off from the standard, but Shawn was incredible and sent me three other bands to make sure I had the right FFFit. He explicitly said that he would rather have me (and any customer) enjoy the band than have it sit in my drawer. And I have! I live in Orlando and love to support a local business that makes great products with excellent customer service. Highly recommended and this is one of the most stylish and unique bands in my collection!

Love It!!

This is my third watch band from FFF. I recently upgraded watches and had to get my favorite band. I get so many compliments on it and it goes with everything!
