    I have found that my Milanese loop band will fold itself up tightly into a self-magnetized wad. Thus I have to pull the band folds apart (not just unclasp the band) to put my Apple Watch on in the morning. Anyone else seeing the same thing?

    I've actually been seeing this a lot on YouTube reviews.

    I've been noticing this as well. A minor annoyance.

    So what you're saying is, that a magnet is interacting with steel.. what a breakthrough!

    Thanks Bill Nye!

    I use it to prop the watch up nicely (at a nice, viewable angle) when charging.

    Tis the reason I sold my Milanese and bought the SBSS.

    I think Apple has solved that problem of folding into a wad by using less strong magnets. When I took my new AW2 Loop out it was relatively easy to pull apart. Hopefully this doesn't mean it will slide more easily. I find out soon enough as I wear on a daily basis this week. I just got my AW2. :)
