    Best band you could buy!

    Best band ever made by Apple for the Watch. You don't even feel it on your hand, the magnet is excellent, doesn't pull any hair (if you have any), doesn't scratch or make any marks with every day use! Overall, the best band I bought for my Watch.

    I was given this band as a Christmas gift.

    I would never have bought myself this band since I gravitate towards imitation leather (I'm vegan) and the sport bands more.
    I do have to say it's a nice band. I cant say it's $150. nice. I have the same loop style band on a watch that cost $50 total and that Milanese loop band is just as nice, if not a little nicer in its finish.

    The magnet does slip a lot. I find myself tightening it at my desk when the only activity I've been taking part in is desktop computing.

    I will say this, it looks GREAT with my ceramic Edition watch! The stainless steel against the white case is very reminiscent of the first few series of iPods and the esthetic of the G4 iMac. Very turn of the century Apple.

    Great strap

    What's great about the strap is that when your wrists expand with the heat you can alter the strap exactly.
    Would highly recommend.

    Nice, but....

    It is a beautiful band and very comfortable wearing it. However, I have a tendency to comb my hair and scratch my head using my watch wearing hand when writing. The band would pull out several of my hairs, give me a sharp sensation, and kick my muse away. I have to replace it with something else if I want to continue to write.

    Great Strap BUT.

    I love this strap, I was worried that it would fall off my wrist as I have a very small wrist and this does not come in different sizes like some of the other models. I am female and wanted the larger 42mm model. I have had mine for a year. It has lasted well even when exercising with this. The only down fall it does move a lot, as I have to put gloves over wrist area for work.

    Looks fancy but

    It looks very nice and its very smooth. I was concerned that it might be scratchy but it is not. My only and chief complaint is that this comes in one wrist size. It is huge on me and I have it tighter as far as it can go so the band is doubled on my wrist.

    Pretty but has sharp edge and pull hair

    I fell in love with the band when I saw the ad and that's what made me got it. First day wearing I almost return it because it kept pulling my hair on my wrist and my long hair get caught in it a lot. It has a small sharp edge near the clasp since day one but I thought maybe it's the design so I didn't do anything about it until today as it has gotten worse. The sharp edge keeps scratching my hand and scrape me many times and my clothes get caught in the sharp edge too, ruining many nice blouses. It's a pretty band and once you get used to getting your hair pulled them it's ok.

    Great band for formal wear AND sweaty conditions

    I had a white Sports band and a Leather Loop, but moving to a semi-tropical country made me realize how easily the white band would get dirty, and the leather smelly from sweat, and so forth. The Milanese loop is fantastic because it's permeable to air and cools quickly when you're back indoors with AC. I haven't fully tested it with high impact sports like tennis, but I'm pretty sure this will be my default band going forward.

    Great Band

    The Milanese Loop is gorgeous, comfortable and easy to handle. So far, I didn't experienced any hair-pulling. During the day, the magnet moves a little bit, almost imperceptible. The quality is impressive but I still thing it is too pricey. I also wish they could come in a smaller size.

    Long hair always get caught

    Thought I would love this band over the white sports band which I had and turned yellow. Unfortunately my hair always get caught in the miniscule holes!!!

    I love my watch and now looking for a leather strap; unfortunately not too many choices for 42mm in bright colours.

    Had Hopes

    Was happy to see the milanese loop released in space black and ordered one. I liked the adjustability and overall look with my sport watch, but for me I felt the edges of the magnetic clasp were too sharp. The band also pulled the hair on my wrist. So I switched back to my sport band I returned it

    Excellent

    It works and looks great, even on men. Don't think twice about it, just get it.

    Space Black = YES!

    Likely the most durable band manufactured, it offers an elegance like no other. You may have seen the knock offs in the wild but they really do not even look as sharp and precise as this one. Excellent job Apple!

    Beautiful & Comfortable; Detail You Expect from Apple

    Wonderfully designed product from Apple. Band material is metal, but feels cool and silky - like very, very fine chainmail. When it catches bright light, it reflects a crazy iridescence. Don't worry if your Watch is a different color/material; mine looks just fine with the Space Gray Sport. The magnet is super strong and I've never worried about it falling off. The magnet is really the only part that's subject to visible scratching; it's made of a metal that's somehow both polished and brushed. The mesh VERY rarely catches hair, but over the months I have had to remove a few patches of wool that have gotten caught. They're hardy visible though, as the mesh hides most imperfections. There are generic versions out there for cheap, but they're so-so. They lack the silky feel and smooth lugs, and the bands don't sit straight. If you're looking for a step up from the Sport bands, the Loop is a great option!

    Over time, the magnetic hold slips

    I've used my watch with this band for nine months. And it is slipping more and more. It needs tightening too often.

    It looks nice, but I would not buy it again because it is a nuisance to tighten throughout the day.

    Mind you, the stress I put on the band is no more than anyone else's, I'm sure.

    I called Apple Support about it, but was told to just clean it. Of course I have, but it still slips.

    Broke day one

    I accidently knocked my hand against a metal bar and the loop separated from its connection point to the clasp that afixes to the watch. Really disappointed I found the Milanese loop to be the most aesthetically pleasing of the bands.

    Amazing work of beauty

    The fit / quality is incredible. I have zero bad things to say about this band. Using a polishing cloth will get all scratches off which are typically only minor. That said this is one of my favorite bands. Thanks Apple

    Nicer than the link band

    I purchased the Apple Watch with the link band. The band is beautiful, but it does seem to get scratched easily. I thought that it would be more scratch resistant. I saw the Milanese band on my friends watch and really liked how it looked, so I bought one. Not only does it not show scratches, but it is very comfortable, more so than the link band. It is very pliable, like a woven fabric and infinitely adjustable. It does not pull the hair on my wrist, probably because I snug it down so it doesn't slide around. The magnet end will not slide out from the mount so you don't have thread it thru or worry about it coming out while putting on the watch and having it fall.

    Met high expectations

    I wasn't sure what to expect of this band exactly, but what I saw is what I got. Looks amazing on the wrist, countless times people told me nice band. The magnetic clasp is strong, and holds the band in place on the wrist. I went for this one expecting to avoid the problem of hair getting caught in the link bracelet and I couldn't be happier, I've even worked out in it, great band!

    Loving it!

    I don't normally write reviews but I felt this strap deserved the effort. The original strap I had gone for was the leather classic buckle and it is lovely, but being leather, the little loop that holds the tail of the strap in place has stretched somewhat, so I felt it was time for a change. i couldn't make my mind up between the Milanese loop and the leather loop and went to my local Apple Store to try them both on. As always the staff were so helpful and patient with me. I tried both on a couple of times, but for sheer elegance, comfort and ease the Milanese loop was the one for me.
    I have particularly small wrists and the strap goes right around, that was my only reservation, the leather loop comes in a choice of medium and large, so the end of the strap will sit more traditionally if so required, but as you can tell I am delighted with my choice.
