    this weekend i went ahead and got the milanese loop band for my SS 42mm.

    it was something i wanted for a while and finally went ahead and got it.

    i def like the fresh new look of it compared to my sport band that i bought the watch with.

    however im noticing that im not catching all my notifications. im getting them but most of time im checking my watch to see the red dot.

    in other words...for some reason (maybe im crazy) i feel like since i changed the band i cant feel the haptic as good as i did with the sport band. its not on loose either. has anyone else noticed this with the milanese or even other bands?

    Metal bands tend to dissipate the haptics. Turn on prominent haptic to compensate.

    I would agree that with the link bracelet too, the haptic is more difficult to feel. You will probably get used to it. Plus, there are times you will want to use your sport band too.

    Yep had the same issue with my Milanese loop. I wear a sport band for work and feel them just fine.

    That is interesting. I also have the Milanese, and thought that the haptics would be stronger than they seem to be.

    Try doing it up really tight and getting someone to text you. That is the feeling you get when wearing a sports band or either leather band.

    Most likely you're wearing your ML a bit looser than you did with the sport band. I found no trouble with my band. Funny enough, when someone sent me their heartbeat while I work my ML, the whole band shook like crazy and almost rattled. I thought it was a bad taptic engine but it was just the looped part of the band.
