A while back I received an Apple Watch as a gift. I can’t tell whether or not the Watch is an original First Generation or a Series 1.

How do I check which model of Apple Watch I have?


The engraving on the back of the watch will tell you. The original Apple Watch just has ‘Watch’ engraved and is sometimes called “Series 0” since it is one generation earlier than “Series 1”. All subsequent watch models have ‘Watch • Series x’ where x is the series of the watch.

You can also look up the model number on the Identify your Apple Watch Apple Support page. You can find the model number in the iPhone Watch app under My Watch → General → About.
