    I have a 38mm link bracelet in my 40mm Series 4. When attaching the bracelet, I have no issues, but often times in removing it, it feels like I'm just applying too much pressure. The band is authentic, etc... Maybe that's just part of the game when Apple upped the size? It's technically compatible but not flawless?

    Apple have said they are 100% compatible so the fit should be the same for 38mm and 40mm watches.

    Could be just from being new, I have a 42 mm link bracelet original from Apple and when I put it into my new series 4 44 mm it felt tight but the more I use it on and off the easier it’s getting.

    The watch is 2mm taller (40mm vs 38mm) adding 2mm to the total circumference around the wrist, so if anything one would imagine the band would be slightly looser if anything.

    I think the OP is talking about sliding them into the watch not putting them on his wrist.
