apple watch mockups

Hey, smartwatch fans, are you searching for the best free and premium Apple Watch mockups?

Here’s our carefully studied collection for everyone.

This took us several months to complete. Why?

Because we ACTUALLY tested the templates and used them for our projects and clients. (It sure was fun.)

We ended up picking three different styles:

These cover every user, so no IFs, BUTs, or MAYBEs.

You don’t need Photoshop to make a mockup.

But even if you opt for PSD files, they’re too easy to work with.

Are you ready to blow everyone’s mind away?

Just. Do. It.

Best Apple Watch Mockup Generators

These go for only $7.95/template with optional monthly ($14.95/mo) or yearly ($89.69/yr) subscriptions to save extra money.

1. Close-up of an Apple Watch at night

We like this one the most even though all the mockups in this collection are GREAT. It’s easy-to-use and extremely photorealistic.

The entire process of improving takes just a few clicks to complete. However, you only achieve the speediest mockup realization if you already have the design ready.

You can also spice things up with text and the company logo.

So simple. So powerful.


2. Apple Watch on a two-colored surface mockup

apple watch on a two colored surface mockup
This is another Apple Watch mockup that we enjoyed using a lot. It has just enough creativity to it (two-toned background) to make the overall presentation MORE engaging.

You can use any tint you want for the background by navigating to the handy color pickers. From then on, it’s all about inserting your image/design.

This is it!

Note: Like with other Placeit mockups, you can add text and a logo.


3. Young woman wearing a black Apple Watch mockup

We like using life-like mockups for Apple Watch app presentation the most.

This is another EXCEPTIONAL example of how you can make your application look in use even if it’s not released yet.

How cool does that sound?

Start hype early, couple the mockup with a download link and take promotion to the next level. Yes, you will!

We did it and we see no reason why you couldn’t achieve a stunning outcome, too.


4. Mockup of a floating Apple Watch

I’m not really sure what’s so SPECIAL about floating objects, but they work. The same goes for Apple Watch mockups.

You can now test it for yourself and your (or your client’s) audience.

The entire process of improving the default settings is a piece of cake since this is an online mockup generator.

If you’re ready for something different, you’re ready for this creative creation. Enjoy.


5. Tattooed woman using Apple Watch mockup

I really like seeing models on mockups with tattoos, it’s becoming very everyday-ish. (I know this may be a bit off-topic, but needed to put it out.)

And here’s a fantastic example of a woman with an inked arm checking what’s hot on her Apple Watch.

What’s hot? Your application design, of course!

Even though the environment has a more office- or home vibe, you can still apply it for anything you’d like a smartwatch to rock.


6. Lady checking her Apple Watch during a coffee break

We wanted to offer you as many different realistic Apple Watch mockups in this collection. In short, we aimed to bring something for everyone. (Hurray!)

Coffee breaks, Apple Watch and notifications, what else do you need in life? An Apple screen of your app or anything else you’d like to slide into this generator.

You can test as many variations as possible before settling on the clear winner.

You can even do all this work before creating a free Placeit account. (The best!)


7. Black Apple Watch on a wooden surface

A black Apple Watch on a wooden surface is what’s up with this mockup.

The combo works very well. However, what would make it even better is the option to change the color of the wooden texture.

Still, the light grayish backdrop works for a lot of occasions. Especially once you add the image you’d like to present.



8. Black Apple Watch mockup of a sporty woman

This one is for all the healthy living sports enthusiasts out there.

If that’s something you are working on, a sports application, advertise it the right way – with an Apple Watch mockup. (Duh!)

The template is also a nice close-up shot of the watch with a working area of 312 x 390px.

Plus, the upper left quarter is great for adding some text, a call-to-action, if you will.


9. Girl drinking water with Apple Watch

Okay, here’s another with a similar theme to the previous one since we know how many use Apple Watch for activities.

A woman drinking water after a workout, modeling her smartwatch with a leather band.

SORRY, you cannot change the color of the band or the watch, but you can attach your design, text and logo.

The final creation is great for social media promotions, marketing campaigns and the like.


10. Apple Watch on a moleskine mockup

If the previous two Apple Watch mockups were more “informal,” this one is much more “formal.”

Office and professional VIBES are very high and that’s exactly what you’d like to use this template for.


Don’t be afraid to go against the grain and do your thing. Your imagination is the only limitation that you have.

Get things going in a snap because you can. Placeit offers you to start without an account, making everything even more exciting.

First, I’d like to mention that EVERY design that’s from Anthony Boyd is spectacular.

What’s cool, there are quite a few free Apple Watch mockups available for you to play with.

They aren’t just any mockups – they’re extremely high quality (5000 x 3750px).

Silver watch with different colored bands makes for a very vibrant showcase.

19. Ceramic Apple Watch mockup

If you’re a fan of a ceramic Apple Watch, this is the mockup that you shouldn’t miss in your life.

It’s a luxurious piece that’s, at the same time, very minimal.

The scene was made in Cinema 4D, and you can now use it free of charge. Bring any logo or design you want on display – IT’S TOO EASY.

(You can even check the YouTube video to understand better how the scene was made.)


20. Realistic Apple Watch free PSD mockup

Black and white, that’s all you need in your life. A realistic presentation of an Apple Watch that features a 100% removable background.

That said, you can include a custom version or even go with a transparent one – the choice is yours.

Branding work, logos, applications, whatever you work on will come into view strikingly.

21. iPhone and smartwatch mockup

Even though it’s not the newest iPhone and Apple Watch kit, it’s still so gorgeous that we just couldn’t skip it. No, we didn’t use this one for any of our clients.

However, the scene with the black backdrop is real eye-candy. Also, the PSD mockup comes at a resolution of 5000 x 3750px, which is pretty damn awesome.

A layered PSD file with smart objects makes the process a little breeze for everyone. Beginners and pros, you’re WELCOME.

How To Easily Create An Apple Watch Mockup

Before I share this simple step-by-step tutorial on creating a realistic Apple Watch mockup presentation, you need to know that experience is unnecessary.

I’ll show you how to do it with an online mockup generator (Placeit), which requires only some clicking to make it happen.

Here we go!

5 Steps to create an apple watch/smartwatch mockup:

  • Step 1: Visit Placeit, where you can find all the different Apple Watch templates.
  • Step 2: Click the image you like to open and then hit the “insert image” button.
  • Step 3: A popup window will open after you upload your image to resize and reposition it so it meets your needs. Hint: the live preview comes in extra handy.
  • Step 4: With your design on the mockup, you can now perform other customization tweaks to adjust the default look with the necessary branding. Changing the background, adding graphics, and even creating a text overlay is possible.
  • Step 5: When satisfied with your creation, click download and start sharing it with the world.

And that’s how simple designing an Apple Watch mockup is.

But even if you use a free PSD file, you’ll also have a blast making things happen.

Open Photoshop and import the template you dig. Then click the smart object layer to drag-n-drop your image, and the “hard” work is done.

You can now navigate other layers to modify the mockup however you want before you click save and download.

That’s it!
