Apple today added two new accessories for Apple Watch that will make the wearable fit wrists as large as 245mm. The first accessory, simply called Link Bracelet Kit, costs $49 from Apple and includes six additional links to expand the Link Bracelet to fit wrists as large as 245mm. Apple also today introduced a new Sport band size in L/XL that also fits up to 245mm wrists. Previously, the Sport band only extended to 210mm.

Notably, Apple only appears to be offering its Link Bracelet Kit in silver, leaving users of the Space Black Link Bracelet in the dark. Apple touts that the Link Bracelet Kit includes the same type of links as the standard band, which means that no special tools are required to add and remove them. The L/XL Sport band is only available in black and white color options.

Crafted from the same stainless steel alloy as the case and the Link Bracelet, these links extend the 42mm stainless steel Link Bracelet by an additional 40mm. And thanks to a simple release button, you can add and remove them without any special tools.

Apple’s Link Bracelet Kit is available online now for $49 and ships in 5-7 business days, while a L/XL Sport band also runs $49 and ships in the same 5-7 business days.

You can view Apple’s full, refreshed sizing guide for Apple Watch bands here. Apple doesn’t appear to be offering the L/XL Sport band when first buying a Watch, meaning that you’ll either have to exchange the initial band you purchase or buy a L/XL after the fact for $49.

Additionally, Apple has stocked standalone Modern Buckle bands for 38mm stainless steel Apple Watches. The $249 option has been listed as a band available for purchasing on its own since the Watch launched earlier this year, but until today it has been unavailable. The earliest shipping appears to be late August around the 24th.
