Just curious how it varies across people with watches today. The silver sport I had first for ~3 weeks had a pretty free spinning wheel. It didn't take any effort to move it up and down. I could almost make it spin with enough force. Last week I upgraded to an SS and it's a bit stiffer. It definitely takes more pressure from my finger to make it scroll. I'm not sure if it's "worse" more than it is different than the last one. I know someone with an SGS and his was extremely stiff, to the point where I'd probably bring it to the store for a warranty exchange if possible. But he just uses the screen for scrolling and not the crown. I've already tried the water procedure with the crown but it does not change how it feels. If anything it feels a bit sturdier than the last one, but I did not expect the variance in how they felt.
