    Been reading a bunch of reviews and a lot of them state that after a few months the magnet is losing strength and needs to be adjusted many times during the day if you are even partially active. Is it possible to re-magnetize the magnet in the Milanese Loop?

    I have had a series 0 with the Milanese loop since the watch was introduced, wear it every day and the magnet is still as strong as when I got the watch new

    I guess it depends... is it an Apple Milanese loop or a third party? If it's an Apple model, I've never heard of this being a problem. I'd assume Apple would replace it if it was really the magnet. On the other hand, if you exercise in the Milanese, you might find your wrist expands and contracts some, and you want to adjust the band for that reason.

    I had to adjust mine a number of times a day right from day one. Returned, as it really annoyed me.

    Same here, had one for two days and that was enough for me. Prefer the leather loops.

    The leather loops are a million times better, not sure why Apple don't do more variations of them!?

    I have bought several spare ones as I think they will discontinue with the AW4 if they redesign it.

    I was thinking about getting another charcoal grey as it matches my grey ceramic so well and also scared they'll discontinue them...

    It will be very interesting, and the villagers might storm the gates with lanterns and pitchforks, if Apple, in their new "trendy design", obsoletes current bands.

    Same. Still use the space black milanese loop from my series 0 with my series 3. No issues with it.

    Hm, I would think not, as peoples' band collection is a nice "hook" to keep people on the apple watch bandwagon.
