    10 Month Use Report

    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.

    Looks Great - Not good for working out

    This is probably one of the sharpest looking bands offered for the Apple Watch. The magnet is amazingly strong and for normal daly wear its perfect. However, if your using your watch for fitness tracking (intense cardio or crossfit) this band may not work for you. It will loosen some when working out and can make heart rate monitoring less accurate than it should be. If your workouts are limited to bike, treadmill, stepper you'll be fine. For all other activities that cause more dramatic hand motion I would suggest choosing a traditional band that locks in place.

    Yes it's shiny. Yes it looks better than the plastic ones. But NO it does not make you special :P I say this because it's so darn expensive, and you expect when you put it on that your watch will suddenly sprout wings and become magically faster or something. Nope, same old Apple watch. I also noticed the "loop" stands out like a sore thumb depending which side you slide it through. there is a wide gap that makes this look not as high of quality as it should. It actually looks more like a shiny bracelet than a watch band (the ladies might like this more than the fella's). As a guy I just didn't like the look. I took mine and am enjoying the Sport Band that came with my original.

    I wanted something to dress up my stainless steel silver Apple Watch. This works. It is so beautiful! It is so easy to change from my red band to this dressy band. I get so many compliments on this band. I love it. It stays in place, and what can I say, Apple makes really great products! I am very happy with my purchase. I know the price is high, but you get what you pay for. You really do!! Bonus, it came in a really nice box to keep it in. I was really surprised to see it come in the box. I don't know of any of my friends that got the fancy I did with their dressy Apple Watch band. I am so happy!

    I purchased this thinking that I’d notice a big diff from my knockoff which I purchased from Amazon for $25. Biggest diff is that it says 42mm at connector. The magnet does not grab onto items on table or in purse that are metal. Like the knockoff does. Otherwise, no one could tell the diff. Was hoping that it would not be as long as the knockoff. Both are exactly same length. I don’t wear mel loop everyday. I save for when I’m more dressed up. Quite honestly. The best band with Apple Watch 2 Stainless is a black one: sport; leather; makes no diff. Black is just much more sleek.

    Magnetic watchband

    I had heard this watchband was available but I hadn't found it. Then one day, perusing other items at Best Buy, there it was! It is much more attractive than the plastic bands. It is, however, not made for very small wrists. Even with the band tightened as far as it can go, it is a little too loose. I have had it for about a month and am starting to see discoloration on the section nearest my skin, and no...it's not dirt. ;-). I plan on putting it in jewelry cleaner and seeing if it removes the discoloration. Overall, I like this watchband and would buy it again.

    "NEEDEDLESS TO SAY" THAT THE THE APPLE WATCH I PURCHASED WAS ALREADY A NICE PIECE AND CAME WITH THE SPORTS BAND...BUT I FELT LIKE I NEEDED TO TAKE MY INVESTMENT TO THE NEXT LEVEL AND THIS ITEM DID JUST THAT. THE MILANESE LOOP STAINLESS STEEL BAND MADE THIS WATCH WHAT IT SUPPOSE TO BE THE FUTURE OF WATCHES...CLASSY LOOKING... EXPENSIVE UNLESS YOU BOUGHT IT FROM BEST BUY WITH THE $100.00 OFF DURING THE HOLIDAYS LIKE I DID...GREAT FOR ALL ACCESSIONS, I DON'T EVEN WEAR THE SPORTS BAND ANYMORE.THIS ITEM IS A MUST HAVE TO GET THAT TRUE APPLE WATCH FEEL AND QUALITY.

    I purchased the sport version in the black band originally. After wearing the sport band for a bit, I wanted to try the Milanese Loop, as I had tried it on before and liked the way it looked. Ive been wearing my Milanese Loop everyday for over a month now, and I do love the way it looks still. Although the downside is that within that month of wearing, the magnetic closure is already not as strong. Once you tighten the watch, it will loosen easily, needing to be adjusted every so often.

    This is a very nice band, although a tad expensive. I also own a lesser expensive knockoff. The knockoff is not bad but I do notice subtle differences. This band just fells better, and at $149 clams it better. The magnet clasp is stronger. The link weaving is tighter. And lastly, it has a slighty heftier feel to it. I only wear this band on special occassions and everytime I do, I always receive compliments. Get it if you can afford it. If not, by one of the many cheaper knockoffs. Either way you can not go wrong.

    Best watch band I've ever owned.

    The fine craftmanship from Apple is astonishing in a band that is clearly not their primary market space! I'll never purchase another after-market band again as the one I have is such a poor fit in comparison. The precision machining on the fit and finish of the Apple band is incredible. The precise fit into the watch is the Goldielocks story. Not too tight, not too loose, it's absolutly perfect every time and makes it easier to switch out bands even multiple times per day.

    Not worth the money

    I actually went to buy an off brand silver band but the store clerk talked me into getting the apple brand. He said the magnet was better and I was less likely to have skin irritation due to the metal. I thought it would be worth the money. I have had it for about a month now and the magnet tends to slip a lot. I'm constantly adjusting it. I was disappointed to see that the silver plate over the magnet scratches very easily. For the money I expected a better product.

    I’ve been saving money to buy a genuine Apple band like this one. Only to be disappointed with the clasp slipping a little bit every so often I find that I have to tighten it depending on my activity....I find that aggravating. Compared to the knock off the quality is beautiful it doesn’t catch on my clothes and it’s very comfortable, just unhappy about the slippage.

    Small wrist.....it works

    I really like this watch band. I have a 6" wrist and it barely fits me. It wraps completely around and the end of the band almost touches the watch but its a very snug fit for working out. If you sweat a lot the band will slip somewhat but not too bad. Don't wear any lotions while wearing as it will seep into the band. The magnet is very strong so I don't worry about losing it. Its a very attractive, sporty look. You won't regret buying it!

    This band for the Apple watch is amazing! The quality is very high and the magnetic closure is very very strong! You can adjust the band easily and it holds tight. The band definitely "feels" high quality and the case it comes in is also quality material. My only issue is sometimes it feels uncomfortable when wearing for long periods but it's probably just me as I haven't worn a watch in years and typically do not wear jewelry for extended periods either!

    Received this as a birthday gift. What a great band, and great fit! Was not available in the store, so needed to purchase the only color available online. Purchase and receipt of shipment was perfect. This Apple product is no longer available at the Apple Store locations, nor is Apple supporting this style watchband for the iWatch 3 from what I could research.

    My wife and I purchased the Apple Milanese Loop Watch Bands to replace the sport bands that came with our watches originally. The band adds a much better fashion sense to wearing an Apple Watch. I really like how easily the band adjusts to my wrist and makes wearing the watch a joy! I would definitely recommend this item to my friends. I have not received any payment or product for writing this review.

    I originally had the band that came with the sport version of the apple watch. Though the original band feels good to the touch I tend to always think that it is coming loose. This band on the other hand has a strong magnet which pretty much keeps its hold the entire time I have it on. I can say that sometimes it gets so tight that it can get hard to take off. It is a good upgrade for the apple watch.

    I have owned a 42mm stainless steel Apple Watch since launch. I have several other bands including sport, leather and woven nylon. I picked up an open box Milanese Loop and combined with some certificates and the Visa buy promotion so it didn't cost me an arm and a leg. The only regret I have is not purchasing it sooner, I should have picked it up long ago and would be willing to pay full price. What an excellent band!
