6. Tap on the Model field: Once you’ve located the Model field, tap on it to access more details about your Apple Watch.

7. Find the model number: In this section, you’ll see the model number of your Apple Watch. It typically starts with the letter “M.” Take note of this number as it will be used for authentication purposes.

8. Compare your model number: Refer to the list of model numbers provided by Apple to determine the exact model of your Apple Watch. Apple assigns specific model numbers to each variation of the Apple Watch, so make sure to find the one that matches your device.

Once you have identified your Apple Watch model, you can use this information for various purposes, such as troubleshooting, software updates, or when seeking support from Apple or third-party service providers.
