    I like many people don't like a tight watch band on my wrist. I have always keep them a little loose. Not enough to rotate but still don't like the 'strangled' wrist feeling. Looks like I (and others) will have to change.

    I don't wear a watch regularly but am an athlete and use sports watches for up to a couple of hours a day. Guess I will start practicing with a tighter strap and see how well I can tolerate it.

    What do other loose band wearers think?

    Just one mention, but this Apple employee says "probably a little loose, but you're gonna feel everything ok":

    It does't seem loose loose, but not too tight either.

    Also, check how loose Ive's own watch is in this video:

    Unless you're holding your arm upside down, the bottom of the watch is always resting on your wrist, so you'll probably feel the taps just fine.

    Thanks, no doubt if it's working (monitoring) Ive's HR then I have nothing to worry about. He is wearing it VERY loose. Also see he and Tim were able to afford the 18K sold gold versions so thy must be competitive priced.:D
