If you’ve gone into an Apple Store to try on an Apple Watch, only to find it’s a bit to snug for your meaty wrists, we’ve got good news. Apple has released a kit that allows users to add extra links to their Apple Watch as well as a larger Sport Band.

The kit comes with six additional links for the 42mm Apple Watch, and only works with the Link Bracelet (of course). But, for $49 per pack, you’ll be able to expand your Apple Watch past its 215mm limit indefinitely (please feel free to make a belt, or a necklace).

If the link bracelet isn’t your thing, Apple also has a new L/XL sizing option for the 42mm Apple Watch Sport Band. With the new band, your Apple Watch can now fit a wrist up to 245mm.

The new Sport Band is also $49.

Both the kit and the new band are available via Apple’s website, and ship in 5-7 days.
