    Since the in store try-on will start tomorrow in US, I'm curious what's everyone's experience with Sport Band. Back in WatchKit Lab I found it's hard for me to put on the Sport band using just a single hand, anyone experiences the similar issue?

    No, my 9 year old can do it..... my 12 year old can do it.... 66 year old mom can do it. It's not hard at all. I see people telling others to balance it on their leg and all this other crap.... OMFG put it on your wrist, put your index and middle finger on the short band, thumb on the long band and put the pin in the required hold then slip the extra through the strap. NOT hard.

    Use your middle finger to hold down the pin, index and thumb to adjust

    I'm 70 years old and do it all the time. Of course I've been putting buckle type watch bands on with one hand since I got my first watch for Christmas over 60+ years ago.

    Although I could do it with one hand, moving to a link band was a major improvement in my quality of life.

    The secret is to stick your right middle or index finger into the big hole, and use that finger to tighten and hold the strap to your wrist until you can use your thumb to press the opposing strap onto the pin.

    (geez it is hard to describe that in words!)

    My Mom told me that using my middle finger was rude. TBH, I've never had any issues with putting my sport band on one-handed.

    I am confused as to the confusion with this. It's just like putting on any other watch - you put the watch on the wrist, put the pin in the hole, tuck the excess strap.

    Have the folks having issues just never worn a watch before?

    No trouble - found it very easy right from the start.
