    I have my SS watch, and I'm loving it. I am however, one of those button freaks. Every button should feel a certain way to me. Anyways, I'm just curious what everyone's crown button feels you have a soft click or hard click when pushing the crown? It certainly doesn't feel anything like my contacts button, which is super clicky, almost like an iPhone power button.

    Anyone care to chime in?

    Contact button has a more prominent click than the crown, but the difference isn't that much.

    If I haven't used the crown in a while, then the first click is soft, but each click after that is pretty close to that of the friends button.

    I've just given the crown a wash as per the thread about sticky crowns, so I'll see if that stops the soft feeling of the first click.

    Edit: I also find that both buttons click slightly differently if you press them off-centre.

    ok, thank you! I'm curious what people think of the feel. At first I was disappointed it wasn't super firm and clicky, but now, after using it for a few hours, I'm realizing it might be too difficult to push if the button was too stiff.

    Both of the buttons on my Watch make an audible click, but they're not terribly stiff.
