    2 major flaws

    • Written by Steven D from Fort Wayne

    I ordered this a couple of weeks ago, and while it's a great looking band, have 2 complaints about this very expensive piece of equipment:

    1. The magnet either doesn't hold well at all, or it holds too well; it's strong enough to constantly engage when you're trying to disengage it (like when you try to take it off), and too weak to keep it tight to your arm. The band always loosens up during normal wear and I find myself having to readjust it to tighten it back up at least once an hour; if i'm moving my arm around a lot, it's every couple of minutes until I get sick of it, and then pull the watch off my arm.

    2. The band pulls out hair. Period. Unless you don't have any hair on your arm, it WILL pull out hair. A lot.

    As is nearly always the case, Apple once again sacrifices function over form.

    Band not secured to watch

    • Written by Ralph L from Valrico

    Warning... if the magnet that holds the band in place becomes unconnected to the band it can totally slip through the connection on the watch and the watch will fall off. THIS IS A DESIGN FLAW. The simple fix would be to make the magnet portion thicker so it won’t slip through the connection on the watch. BE VERY CAREFULL... YOU CAN EASILY LOOSE YOUR WATCH!
