Are you ever worried you're breaking the Watch band connector

I love swapping bands on my Apple Watch. I must have 15 or so different bands. Sometimes it feels like pulling them out is harder than other times.

Do you ever feel like your breaking the mechanism?

I own over 20 bands and have rotated through my Apple Watch _hundreds_ of times with no issues whatsoever. Some bands may not have the lugs completely seated properly, which might pose difficulty at times.

Thanks, I change my band 2-3 times a day. I get so damn OCD. I just have to learn to chill.

Thanks again!

I guess I was more worried that I wasn’t pushing the button hard enough when pulling the band out.
Yeah you will buy a new Apple Watch because the battery no longer gets through the day long before the band release will wear out.

Houston (duh)
Wait, what? You mean you guys don't just rip them out?
I know it may sound ridiculous, but if you read the original post, you should be able to see why I asked for clarification. lol
[doublepost=1538703404][/doublepost]Also, there was another thread recently about a person who put their band on backwards/upside down, and their watch kept falling off of their wrist, so you never know!

Yeah, I’ve owned every generation. And I slide it out. But sometimes it feels harder to slide out and I’m worried I may not be pushing the button in far enough. It’s just my OCD though.

I alternate between brown leather band (for work/going out), sports band (weekend), sports loop (gym) and leather loop (just to mix it up) a few times a week and never had a problem.

I never understand the little button on the back. Are you supposed to press it in when taking the band out? Doesn't seem to do much.
