  • Overview

    A modern interpretation of a design developed in Milan at the end of the 19th century. Woven on specialized Italian machines, the smooth stainless steel mesh wraps fluidly around your wrist. And because it’s fully magnetic, the Milanese Loop is infinitely adjustable, ensuring a perfect fit. Like all Apple Watch bands, you can match this band with any Apple Watch case of the same size.

      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!

      Nicer than the link band

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.

      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 ref 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!

      Don't Waste Your Money

      I think that this is most elegant looking watch band.

But after 3 months of putting up with the band continually coming loose on my wrist I got fed up and went back to my original velcro sport band. Which never comes loose no matter what I do. This great looking band has been a big disappointment and waste of money. Apple needs to find a way to make the fastener stronger. Being an engineer I understand that magnetic stainless steel has many limitations. My recommendation would be to do a redesign and either add a clasp or sections of material with stronger magnetic properties. The watch gets so loose throughout the day that I have to constantly reenter my password just to read the time.

      Absolutely the best

      I don't unterdatand the bad reviews, I read a review that says the magnet was not strong enough, I find this to absolutely be not true. This band is prefect, a I don't unterdatand the bad reviews, I read a review that says the magnet was not strong enough, I find this to absolutely be not true. This band is prefect, at least the two that I have. A little pricey, but I find this 42mm Milanese loop band to be perfect, I would give it 5 stars if I could.

I purch ------------ Summary: Ten months after purchase, my Milanese Loop has corroded at the magnet/rubberized end to the point that it fell apart. I purchased it separately from my watch so there is no warranty. After contacting Apple Support I was told my only option was to purchase a new one. ------------ Details: Purchased my Milanese Loop at the end of January 2017. The first week of November 2017 I noticed the band slipping resulting in a too loose feel. Upon close observation, it was revealed that a corrosion bubble that developed inside by the magnet grew to push the panel seal out ahead of the rubber ring causing the ring to slip. While I'm a healthy active middle-aged man, my watchband has never been subjected to swimming pools, baths, nor showers. I have worn it to the gym, but my perspiration is not excessive. I wear it every day, which can include days of yard work or home repair projects on the weekends. ------------ Final Thoughts: This is an elegant watchband that is very comfortable especially for a metal band, which are two of the several reasons why I purchased it. At the same time, the build standard for my particular watchband, which has not lasted 10 months, is less than what I've come to expect from Apple products in my 30 years as a loyal customer. Mine may be an anomaly, so weigh this as you see fit.
