Like Samsung's other smartwatches, the new Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 lets you switch things up in the bands department.

If you prefer walking around with something more eye-catching keeping that watch case in place, you can quickly swap in a host of different bands.

The good news is that Samsung makes it really easy to change Galaxy Watch 3 straps around. It uses a simple pin mechanism that you can squeeze or press to release from the watch body.

When it comes to strap sizes, you'll need to look for 20mm sized straps for the 41mm Galaxy Watch 3 and bigger 22mm straps for the larger 45mm Watch 3.

Thankfully, as the Samsung Galaxy Watch takes standard watch straps, there's loads of choice available, as well as some specifically-designed Galaxy Watch bands. We've picked out the pick of the bunch below.
