For those that have the Sport with a leather loop band, have you noticed any problems with the band connecting to the watch? Before these started shipping there were talks of the two materials (aluminum and stainless steel) not working well together.

Just wondering if anyone has noticed anything the first couple weeks.

Thanks!

I have a Black Leather Loop and put it on for the first time and noticed I had the one side not clicking in. I noticed I needed to flip it over to connect correctly. Maybe that's the issue?

I know some people having flipped their bands around the wrong end hence no click.

No problems with connecting or changing out the bands on mine. I have a Sport and wear four different bands, two of them being leather loops.

I love this band. It's like they took the smart cover and made a watch band out of it :)

Looking forward to getting one eventually.

I have black leather loop and it fits without any issues. Looks great. Huge upgrade from sports band.

I have that same set-up and agree with you. A darker brown, like the leather 6 case, would look better. It's nice as is though too.
You nailed it. I was hoping my watch band would match my brown leather iPhone 6 case. Haha.

I've tried wearing them like that (same way as the Milanese loop. I didn't particularly like or dislike it.
