    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.
