    Got my link band today but the first thing I realize is that it's not compatible with using a macbook. Does anyone have any good ideas or product suggestions that can help ease the collision?

    All the other bands work perfectly, they are either soft or the metal part is off to the side so my wrist is not pressing it against the macbook.

    It is silly that I have to bother with this, but I've taken up the habit of folding my microfiber cloth to fit next to the trackpad on the left and I rest my hand on that

    I just lift my arm a little when wearing a metal band watch.

    So there's no issue wearing the Milanese only the link bracelet?

    Does the Sport Band stainless steel plug causes problems?

    You must be new to wearing watches because this is not a new problem.

    I usually take my watch off when working at a keyboard simply because it's more comfortable for me. But, short of that, I added a skin to my MacBook Air that covers the area around the trackpad so it doesn't get damaged from my watch (Omega Seamaster with heavy steel link bracelet).

    If you do a Google search, you will find many sellers of skins for phones and iPads. The often sell pieces for laptops too. They are made if thin flexible material with an adhesive on the back. I got mine from stick erboy dot net.

    You can get just the piece that fits around the keyboard.

    Or, if you want fancy, go for a leather piece:
