Doesn't maintain contact as well with Milanese band. Too snug?

    When I wear my watch with the sport band, the band is somewhat loose, but the watch contact with the skin is enough that it maintains connection and the lock doesn't come back on. When I wear it with the Milanese band, sometimes it takes adjusting 8-10 times before I can get it to stop locking right back up. It's almost like the Milanese band makes it either too snug or too loose. There isn't a spot that is "just right."

    I know my wrist tattoo makes this worse, but interesting that it is usually fine with the tattoo and the sport band...

    Anyone else seeing this?

    I have Milanese loop band and have no problems with  Watch relocking.

    Get the leather loop as it is VERY adjustable.

    I tried the link and Milanese and the loop is much more comfortable.

    I haven't had any problems with my Milanese loop either but I don't wear mine too loose. I don't like it moving once on.

    Thanks for the feedback. I wear it pretty snug, but sometimes it seems like it's not connecting because it is so snug against the tattoo. Maybe not. :)

    Yep. It seems better on the other wrist, which is why I think it's somehow related to how the band holds the watch against the tattoo (and how the sports band does it differently).
