    Hi all!

    Just got my new Apple Watch series 3 Sports.
    It fits perfectly, great device.
    Yet, noticed something that, reading an old thread was already reported, but I would like to know with recfent owners if this is common.
    The band, when on the writes is perfectly snugg attached to the watch,
    However, when I take the watch off my wrist, I can notice some wiggle of the band parts on the point they attach to the watch. Nothing too bad, is just a vertical wiggle that is noticeable when, for examp, picking the watch from a table, for example.
    Thinkg about it for a few moments, and since the band, when on the wrist gets on an angle it gets just perfectly snug, maybe this is a way to facilitate band removal/exchange...

    Could you post your experiences on this?


    Thanks in advance!

    Hello, the post was with Google Relatively difficult to find. But I was lucky and already know that I am not alone with the supposed problem.

    The problem I noticed already when unboxing the Watch.
    I have already asked Apple and in another shop I looked another Apple Watch. Unfortunately, it was only a Series 2 but with the same wiggle.
    The Senior Adviser said that she will check Watches they have at place. After a short wait with some music she told me that would be normal.

    Here you can find a Youtube video of my watch.

    It's not a problem; totally normal behaviour.

    Yes, I wouldn't worry! Every Apple Watch I have ever seen does this. If I were to guess, it is caused by the mechanism which facilitates quick removal of the bands.

    Yes normal, all 3 AW I’ve had have had this behavior. Nothing to worry about

    It's my first AW.
    So my first impression was, it's poor quality from Apple...
    But after a little bit reflection, i thought its eventually a Hardware issue.

    A Hardware problem for 479€ is to much! The watch must be nearly perfect for this price i think.
    If you do not know that is normal then you are dissatisfied for the price.
    I feel like this.

    Well, it’s perectly fine. If you can’t come to terms with that, then you should return it and move on with your life while the rest of us enjoy the Apple Watch.

    That was so because i don't knew that's the same with every AW.
    Its my the first impression! Would you be enjoy about a device that maybe have not been produced correctly?

    I do not want any discussion about the Apple Watch whether this is good or bad. But just simply I wanted to know if it is normal, or not.

    I feel like this comment was a bit unnecessary. The OP just wanted to make sure nothing was wrong with their watch. No need to be so crass.

    Not harsh at all. Folks told the OP that the movement is normal and he responded by saying that was not right for a product that costs 479 Euros and that the Watch must be nearly perfect for that price.

    It is likely designed that way to alleviate stress at that junction and if someone can’t cope with the slight movement where the band connects to the Watch, then the Watch is not for them and they should look elsewhere for a wearable tech design that better fits their taste in design.

    The person who replied that It was not right was not the OP. the OP was rmarinheira and you replied to ctrick. So you and I are both confused about who we were talking about. I retract my statement about the OP and I apologize for saying you were being rude.
