    Hi, I received my 38mm SS Milaenese Loop bright and early this morning by picking up at my local UPS CC, and have been playing with it ever since. I need to pace myself because I'm feeling really overwhelmed going through videos trying to learn everything I can, so now I need some help and haven't been able to find an answer online.

    Does anyone know if the passcode can be turned off? I hate it!

    I son't think so. It's a security feature to protect your watch from being used for :apple: Pay if it get stolen, but I could be mistaken.

    Unfortunately I think you are probably correct. Oh well, the option is there to turn it off, so maybe they will make it available in a future release.

    Another question for the experts!

    What should I do with the watch while in a movie theater to keep it from making noise or lighting up when I raise my wrist?

    Passcode can be turned off (UK anyway) its in the Watch Setting on your iPhone

    Movie Theatre:
    Active the screen
    Swipe up
    Go to the left most place
    Enable Do Not Disturb
    Enjoy Film

    Thanks so much for this great info! I think the reason I can't turn it off (greyed out on phone settings) has to do with the security settings my company has on my iPhone.

    There's a setting to unlock the watch automatically once you've unlocked your phone. The watch then stays unlocked while ever you're wearing it. Pretty nifty.

    I'm sure this is correct......my personal iPhone is required to have a pass code for security purposes for my work email account
