    Quick question for those who've received a watch today - Did you get a cleaning cloth in the box?

    No, and I honestly thought I read somewhere that it comes with one.

    Maybe that's not the Watch Sport?

    I had heard that as well, but apparently it doesn't apply to the watch or watch sport.

    I've got the SS and it's not come with one. I've just been on an online chat with Apple and apparently they don't come with one. I think they're trying to sweep it under the carpet as they have some support pages that refers to an included cloth.

    Interesting, you found the new 'gate' Clothgate!

    It doesn't come with the watch edition either-

    Strange. I thought I read a thread indicating that it includes a cleaning cloth just like the early generation iPhones did.

    There's a review on here somewhere that shows a link SS watch that came with a cloth.

    The best cloth I've ever used are called: MOBiLE CLOTH. Quite pricey for a cloth but they are brilliant. Here is a link to their homepage:

    http://mobilecloth.com

    EDIT: Can be found on Amazon too.

    According to https://support.apple.com/en-ca/HT204665, it includes a cleaning cloth. It's Canadian so available only in Canada? Edit: There's also a USA version so it makes no sense.

    "Clean your Apple Watch with the included cloth or a lint-free cloth. Because Apple Watch is water resistant, you can dampen the cloth with clean water."

    Looks like it's some kind of global conspiracy!

    In all seriousness though, I'm kinda miffed at that. A cloth is going to cost Apple en mass a couple of dollars/pounds/euro (delete as appropriate) and we're all splashing out on these "luxury" items.

    Still love the watch though.

    Are people just not finding the cleaning cloth or it's just available with the link bracelet? The Apple support page seems to indicate the included cloth is available with all models.

    lol it's a joke. I thought and still think antennagate was completely blown out of proportion, the bend thing with the 6+ has been way overplayed.

    I hope there isn't any more of those.

    Well, if it's included only with the link bracelet (which nobody has received yet), then the Apple support page should have stated "Clean your Apple Watch with the included cloth (if supplied) or a lint-free cloth."

    I talked to Apple and they'll be changing both support articles HT204665 and HT204522 as they're inaccurate regarding the cloth.
