40mm Gold Milanese Loop

  • 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. An additional physical vapor deposition (PVD) layer gives the gold stainless steel its distinctive finish.

      Milanese loop is faulty

      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 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.

      Love it! Slightly Different from Previous Milanese Loop Bands

      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 o 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 Is Not Faulty

      I'm sure the new design is to accommodate compatibility with the air power charging pad and other similar charge devices.

      Nice looking, watchband discharges your watch in certain circumstances

      I have child-sized wrists, 5 to 5-1/2 inches, give or take, and depending on where I decide to place the watch on my arm. I have not had a problem with arm hair I have child-sized wrists, 5 to 5-1/2 inches, give or take, and depending on where I decide to place the watch on my arm. I have not had a problem with arm hair since I am a woman, but I DID have 2 major problems with the magnet on the watchband: 1. I have a 44mm watch but the band is so long it was not sufficiently tight enough all the way to the end. What they don't tell you is, the magnet on these kills your battery life if it’s too close to the face. Yup. It won’t harm the battery, but it will discharge it faster. The magnet was right next to the watch face. It was still too long and did not fit, so, I returned it and bought the 40mm version as suggested to me by an Apple person. Here’s what you don’t know: Any band will fit a 44mm watch, no matter the size. It works the other way too, btw, although, not quite as well (it sticks out beyond the watch face). So, yeah, since Apple doesn’t care that women (or kids) like large-faced watches, there is your fix. Works great, locks in and doesn’t discharge the battery life while wearing it. Which brings us to this: 2. You cannot leave this particular watchband on and expect to charge your battery unless you have some kind of special device (like a mannequin hand with wrist) on which to place your watch with the charger attached. Or perhaps some rigid foam or something similar that keeps the magnet on the watchband away from the watch. If you do not do this, it will cause you to find a dead watch in the morning. So, I just take off one of the sides of the band off every day and make sure the magnet is placed as far away as possible from the watch face and charger. I did not have a problem with the watchband finish, but again, I’m not showering or swimming with it, and I find my wrists do not sweat at all with this watchband, unlike most of the others (with the obvious exception of the loops).

      Poor quality...go with Amazon

      I have a lot of Apple brand loyalty but this product is not up to their standards. After just a couple months, it looks terrible...gold has started wearing off.

You’re much better off going with a less expensive version on Amazon and replacing it when it gets beaten up. Apple also isn’t willing to help in any way once the band looks worn.

      Unloop?!

      One of the things Ive always loved about the Milanese band is that it never unloops. Of course I learned this the hard way when my watch dropped day 1....
