FAQ

What are WatchDots?

WatchDots™ are a unique style accessory that allow Apple Watch owners to colorize their Digital Crown and side button to match their band, mood, outfit, or personal style. WatchDots are currently available in 13 colors.


The Apple Watch is Apple’s most personal device ever. With WatchDots, you can take personalization to the next level.


Apple has set a precedent that a color-coordinated Digital Crown is an appealing and desirable look. On the Stainless Steel model, the Digital Crown is black. On the high-end gold Edition model, the Digital Crown is color-matched to the band. On the Apple Watch Sport, however, the Digital Crown and side button are plain aluminum.


WatchDots allow owners of the Apple Watch Sport to obtain a similar look to higher-end models, while adding a unique and stylish element of personalization for a fraction of the price.

Are WatchDots reusable?

No. We don’t recommend reusing WatchDots once removed.

Will WatchDots leave any residue on my Apple Watch Sport when removed?

In our independent tests WatchDots did not leave any residue when removed. In the case that they do, we recommend gently rubbing away the excess adhesive with a damp, lint free cloth.

Will WatchDots damage my Apple Watch Sport?

If applied and removed with care, WatchDots will not damage your watch. We are not responsible for damage incurred while applying or removing WatchDots.

Where are WatchDots made?

WatchDots are made in the U.S.A. and all of our materials are sourced from American vendors.

Do WatchDots fit all models of Apple Watch?

WatchDots were designed to fit the Apple Watch Sport best but are compatible with all models.

Do WatchDots work with watches other than Apple Watch Sport?

While they might fit other watch crowns and buttons, WatchDots are precision cut to fit the Apple Watch Sport's Digital Crown and side button.

I’ve seen similar products on the market. Why should I choose WatchDots?

Most of the products we’ve seen are cut using a machine known in the industry as a plotter. A plotter uses X and Y coordinates to cut a polygon made up of many straight edges that at a small size looks like a circle. This method produces imperfect curved shapes, jagged edges, and inconsistent sizing. WatchDots are kiss-cut from high performance, premium grade vinyl film using a custom made die tool. This method ensures that every piece of vinyl is perfectly round and consistently sized to fit your Apple Watch Sport. This method also allows us to apply a clear transfer layer during the manufacturing process which allows for easy handling and alignment of the WatchDots during application.
