If price is not a factor, which one would you prefer and why?
Milanese loop. Because it sparkles.
Having seen both in person, the Milanese loop. It looks high end, where the link bracelet looks reminiscent of a Casio digital watch band. I think they really missed the mark with that one, then charging $450 for it? Very odd.
Link for me, hands down.
I have several watches with link bracelets - I like the way they fit and feel. The Milanese, while nice and clearly a favorite for many, just isn't my style. I tried on both at the Apple Store on 4/10. I got a SS with Sport band to start, but if I want to add a "dressy" band, it'll either be a leather or link.
Link for sure.
Loop. Looks waaaaaaay better and feels like snake skin! Way more comfortable too as it fits perfectly due to the magnet.
The loop was a letdown for me. Wasn't crazy about the feel and the way it looked on the looped side. I like the simplicity and clean look of the linked band. I have to admit, the sport band was nicer than I was expecting as well
The loop was underwhelming when I saw it.
I'm actually going to cancel my order for the second milanese loop band in favor for beats headset. Just gotta convince myself first. Then later I'll probably buy the link one.
Link cause that's the one I pre-ordered. ⌚️
I was so interested in getting the metal link, but after finding out how much it costs and seeing it in person, I am now more interested in the Milanese Loop. Here they are side by side.
Let's assume the price difference is very close, or even the same... which one would you have picked? Both look nice.
Link looks more "proper", and Milanese looks more elegant and modern.
Milanese, looks so classy and different from everything else so far. On top of that, it is super comfortable.
Milanese by far, after seeing both in person and trying them on i didn't care for the link and its Casio looking self
my only worry is will the link become either too loose or too tight since there is no micro adjustment.
Those who tried the link able to comments?
Link because I want people to think that I'm a high roller.
Just kidding. I wanted the loop but I was sad that it wouldn't ship until June (I have my watch coming 4/24-5/8). So I decided to get the link. I was planning to get the link in October anyway. But that loop is gorgeous and looks better in person but the link is the other way around (still looks pretty good).
It just looks different but I love that it doesn't tug on hair.
I will get the Milanese Loop for the comfort. I was having a hard time securing the clasp for the link and I know I will get used to it but the Milanese loop is a no-brainer. The butterfly clasp for the link is kinda tricky for me
it fit a little snug when i tried it on but i feel like an extra link would have made it too loose fitting.
Yeah speaking of the hair ( just look at my pic I posted on how hairy my arms are)...never once did my hairs got tugged while trying on the Milanese Loop. Love it
I think it depends on your wrist size and personal preferences, but it's non-issue in my opinion. I tend to wear my link bands with a tiny bit of play so I can periodically adjust position and don't feel like I'm losing circulation. I'm sure Apple took careful detail to get it right for most people though
I hope we get a Space Black Milanese Loop sometime in the future
The loop looked much better in person than expected. Would definitely consider it as a second option. The link on the other hand was underwhelming in person.
but I thought the watch have to be "tight" enough for the sensor to work properly?
I thought about that, I'm getting a sport band just for working out anyway. I still wear watch tight enough that it shouldn't be an issue, just not so tight that I feel like it's pressing into my skin
Edit: Have to take into consider your wrist size slightly fluctuates from it's resting position/flexed position. I usually kind of my "flex" wrist then fit it to that so there's just slight bit of wiggle room when resting. Don't want it to feel like it's gonna bust if you were to any activity. Just my opinion
Milanese. I think it's very versatile, it can go formal or semi-casual.
Normally I am a fan of link bracelets but something about it paired with the Apple Watch gives it a very Casio calculator feel, not particularly elegant at all.
