I have the 42mm SS version.. the side button (not the crown, but the other one) is loose. Very disappointed.

I bought Apple Care plus so my questions...

1. Anyone else have this issue?
2. Should I worry about it? I love the watch otherwise.
3. Will Apple replace it due to manufacture defect?

Both my watches have had this (first one got da,aged & replaced under AppleCare+). The display models in the Apple Stores do it as well. It is NOT a defect.

Mine is wiggling a bit, too. Was the same with my iPhone 5 power button. It's normal as long as the button does what he's there for.

There is a little looseness in some. It varies. On my first one it gave me a problem in launching Apple Pay. It was replaced by AppleCare. They shipped me the new one and then I returned the original. The new one is not "wiggly" at all and I can get Apple Pay up every time now.
