    Anyone had this problem? Over the last couple of weeks, its getting more and more difficult to remove the strap at one end of my SS 44mm. It slides on ok but I have to press the release button several times before the strap will release. Its not the strap that's the problem because i have three straps....a sport, milanese and classic leather and its the same with all of them. I change my straps a couple of times a week. Spoke to Apple support and i am scheduling an appointment with a genius. Watch is mint with no bangs or drops.
    Anyone else had this issue.

    Have you washed it? Could be dirt/dust etc in the mechanism?

    Otherwise probably just a faulty button.

    Yeah i have cleaned it and checked for obstacles but seems ok. I wipe the watch over every couple of days and have an office job so its not exposed to the elements.
