Any idea if the Proposed Air Power mat, will be able to charge the AW with a metal band?

Hi

I am wondering if the might be any restrictions regarding band type and what watch, if any, can be can be charged using the proposed mat?

I don’t think inductive charging works with metal, so I would hate to have to remove the ML when charging the watch.

It doesn’t make a difference, you’re going to have to remove/disconnect the band in order to charge the watch anyways, as it will need to lay flat for contact point with the mat.

It does make a huge difference. It is very different having to remove the band totally from the watch (both sides) b/c it is metal or just threading it back out of the loop lug, so it lays flat. I can easily do the latter. Removing the band in total b/c it is metal, would prove difficult for me on a daily basis.

It depends which metal band you have. The link possibly.
Apple Milanese version 1 you will have to remove one side
Apple Milanese version 2 the clip end will slide out of the loop.
