    I just got my Apple Watch series 3 today and I love it but I just noticed the crown is a little more noisy than my previous watch. When you press it, you actually hear a click sound.

    Mine is the same way. Some Apple Watch users reported a 'Softer', more quiet push and others have an audible feedback with a click. I think the tolerances vary with the Digital Crown.

    Honestly I kind of like it. My series 2 felt kind of mushy.

    Same clicking noise with my Apple Watch series 3 Nike Plus. It’s not faulty right? I was going to get it replaced at the Apple Store.

    Mine is more clicky when compared to my S0 Apple watch. I actually welcome and like that its more clicky, on the S0 the buttons felt mushy.

    They actually have the non-LTE in-stock. I will give it a try

    Strange. I wonder if it has anything to do with the model? I have a gray edition, 42 mm Series 3, and I notice that the crown feels "mushier" than my SS, 42 mm. Series 2. There is no clicking sound. You also need to push and let go of the crown really quickly to avoid bring up Siri.

    I've have several of each model (except the Edition) and the feel varies by unit. I like the clicky ones and do not like the mushy ones. I wish they were consistent. I just like the tactile feedback of the click.

    I returned the Series 3 Nike - the crown barely moved and no click at all, while the side button was loose and had a lot of play. Seemed like poor assembly or tolerances.
