On Tuesday, Apple updated one of the supporting documents to emphasize that the new silicone rubber Solo Loop for Apple Watch can increase in length over time, which is also mentioned in fine print at the bottom of the Solo Loop product page.

Apple has also updated its printable Solo Loop size guide with more specific instructions, as noted by Michael Steeber from 9to5Mac. The guide now advises users to wrap the size tool tightly around the wrist where they normally use the watch, and to make sure that the tool feels snug and does not slide up or down.
If the arrows on the Size tool end up pointing to a line between two numbers, the Size Wizard advises users to select the smaller of the two numbers.

MacDailyNews Take: Yes.
If your size exactly falls between two sizes of Apple Watch Solo Loop or Braided Solo Loop straps, choose the smaller size. The strap will stretch to fit, and the watch’s rear sensors must fit well to function properly. If you’re still worried, try going to an Apple Retail Store, if you can, to try them out before you buy. – MacDailyNews, September 21, 2020
