On launch night I ordered a SS watch with the Milanese Loop band. I also ordered the link bracelet, but was unsure if I would cancel that order. At try on I liked the bracelet enough that I decided to keep my order and make a final decision when I got it. There were a few concerns that I had heard from others that I did not really get a chance to check with my brief time with it in the store. Now that I have worn it for a day here are my thoughts about those concerns... Concern #1: "It's too light, 'Casio like', not high end enough to justify the price." I totally disagree with this. I was surprised at the weight of the band. These links are not hollow. It feels every bit as high end as the bracelet on the Tag that I normally wear... maybe more. And the clasp is amazing. Concern #2: "It will pinch and catch your arm hair because of how close the tolerances are on the links." That has not been my experience. It is totally comfortable and I have had no pinching or grabbing of hair. Maybe that is because... Concern #3: "You'll have to get a perfect fit to keep it snug enough to not have to keep entering your pin to unlock it." I liked wearing my Tag a bit loose, and had been experimenting with my Milanese Loop on how loose I could wear it without this happening. I was surprised on how much play I could have in the band and still get a good heart rate as well as not have to use my pin. That seems even better with the bracelet, as the weight of it keeps the watch in place well even though I keep the band fairly loose. Not so loose the watch is flopping all around on my wrist but about the same as I used to wear the Tag. Concern #4: "The brushed finish on the band will make it look like it wasn't made for the SS watch." Not an issue. In fact, this band looks like it was the only choice for the watch. I always felt the ML band looked a little like an afterthought on the watch, or a band made for a different watch. Not this band. This should be the iconic combo for the Apple watch. All in all - this band is awesome and more than worth the money, IMHO. My original plan was to use the ML for dressy occaisions, but this band may never leave my watch. If you are hesitant to get this band or worried that it is not worth the cash, I'd recommend it highly.
