    Terrible! gets knocked loose so it can slip off of your wrist, and WORSE

    • Written by SUDHA N from Saratoga

    The end of the loop just slips out of the end when you go to loosen the watch to take it off! The watch just fell off of my wrist!!!!


    I have had the first gen stainless milanese loop with my first apple watch, the ceramic 2nd gen one came with a plastic loop. This is way worse in quality than my first gen version. The plastic that came with gen 2 ceramic edition was too hot and sweaty. The magnet is weak weak weak! It keeps slipping loose in the middle of a workout. I don't want to change bands all the time.

    Weak magnet

    • Written by Frode H from London

    It’s beautiful, but the magnet is significantly less powerful than my original silver band from the original Watch. Based on this and other Apple products I think it’s clear that people in Cupertino don’t wear long sleeved shirts all that often. :-)

    Love it! Slightly Different from Previous Milanese Loop Bands

    • Written by Christopher D from Cambridge

    I've had the silver Milanese loop since the first Apple Watch was released. Just upgraded to the series 4 gold with gold Milanese loop band. The color is more of a rose gold / copper, rather than a traditional gold, which I love because it is less flashy and more subtle. It's the best looking watch band I've had, and the magnetic clasp is surprisingly effective at holding the watch snug. I thought I'd have to re-tighten the band frequently throughout the day, but I don't. On rare occasions, if doing something that involves a lot of arm motion (like an aerobic workout), it might need a slight readjustment to put it back to the desired tightness.
    One key difference between the old and new Milanese loops is that, when the magnetic clasp is unattached, the strap can be pulled completely out of the opposite side. As other reviewers have mentioned, this is likely so that the watch can be laid flat on a charging mat without needing to remove the band completely. The downside to this convenience is that you want to be a little careful when completely opening the magnetic clasp so that your watch doesn't fall completely off your wrist. It's unlikely to happen even when unattached, but for those who have had the previous Milanese loops, you'll not want to be too cavalier about pulling the watch off your hand.

    Milanese Loop Band has a BIG flaw

    • Written by Ralph C from GREAT NECK

    I was very excited to purchase separately the Gold Milanese Loop. Very disappointed do not buy. The band falls out of the bracket that slides on watch causing the watch to fall. This is very unsafe not to mention the price you pay. I also have the 38mm Black Milanese from last year, this does not happen. What happened Apple, this new one is a major flaw in design. I don't want my expensive stainless steel 40 mm watch to keep falling every time I take it off. I will be returning this right away to Apple.

    More bronze than gold

    • Written by Bev V from West Vancouver

    Delighted with the style and function of this new strap but I wouldn't describe it as gold - more a bronze colour.

    Fantastic band

    • Written by Brandon A from Columbia

    If you can deal with the price, this is an outstanding product. The quality is leaps and bounds above the cheap Milanese loop bands I've previously bough on amazon. Superior product.

    Fantastic and Never Faulty! Great Buy!

    • Written by Tristan P from Singapore

    I recently got this Milanese Loop at Apple Orchard Road after a long time of Out-Of-Stock situation. I must say that this is really comfortable in my wrist. And for the record, I am using Apple Watch Series 4 GOLD Aluminum Case and it looks stunning! i did not expect that there would be no drastic two-tone mismatch between this Milanese Loop and my GOLD Aluminum Finish Apple Watch. Worth every dollar spent. I have let go of my sport bands and this becomes my everyday strap from Sports, Shower and everything.

    Milanese Loop Is Not Faulty

    • Written by Willie C from Kennedale

    I'm sure the new design is to accommodate compatibility with the air power charging pad and other similar charge devices. Its still the same good looking Milanese Loop.

    Milanese loop is faulty

    • Written by Ronald P from Fulton

    Just purchased new 40mm stainless with gold milanese loop. The band falls out of the bracket that slides on watch causing the watch to fall. My 38mm watch with the same type of band does not. The magnet end can't come out. This new one does and is a very dangerous flaw in design. I don't want my watch to keep falling every time I take it off.
