    Anyone else having issues with the Milanese loop?

    I have found just wearing the watch with this band I am having to re tighten it a lot which is driving me a little nuts.

    Just wondering if anyone else is having the same problem?

    I have since bought the Black sport Band with the intention of wearing for work but I find it causes me to sweat behind the band, although I do like having a reasonably tight strap on my watch.

    So I have now got the Black Leather strap with classic buckle, seems to be a more comfier fit. Will see how this goes.

    Yes, I have to tighten it quite a bit as well. Not really an "issue" for me though.

    I have noticed that the magnetic clip is a bit scratched up though. Oh, well.

    The only issue I've been having is that the steel above where it connects is getting scratched up

    My wife has the Milanese. She says often she needs to tighten it up. It does loosen on her too.

    no scratching. No problems with the band. I wonder if the magnetic power varies from band to band.

    Mine did loosen over time but not dramatically so. I replaced mine due to hair pulling though.

    Some days I find myself tightening it up other days not. Depends on what I'm doing and certainly not a big deal. After the first week I hardly even notice. I also have some minor scratching on the end tab but better there than the watch face :-)

    Yes, this has happened to mine too, minute scratches above where it connects to the phone, I think the leather classic buckle is a much more practical band for work, will keep the milanese loop for weekends and going out ;-)

    well the SS link bracelet scratches too - seems to me like you could buff out the scratches on the Milanese loop, too - maybe not on the little chain loops themselves, but the steel tab, etc...

    My Milanese band would slip while playing golf. This would interrupt the GolfShot watch app. Now trying a black sport band. Still love the look of the Milanese band for dress wear.

    Mine seems to slightly loosen if I am very active, but it has not been a problem.
    My wife and I dropped into an Apple store yesterday to try on the sport band, and we each picked up a white one while we were there (38 for her, 42 for myself). Wow. The sport band is so comfortable, I can't believe it. The Milanese was fine, but after a few hours the feel of metal on my skin would bother me a bit and so would the occasional hair pull.
    I think as most people have said, it may be a good idea to have a couple (or more) bands, and choose based on what your plans are for the day.
