    I hate to be one those who finds faults with new products but I'd like to put my mind at rest...

    My Apple Watch Nike plus arrived this morning and I noticed a very slight wiggle in the band mechanism.

    It's not loose by any stretch but there is movement. I'm conscious that if it's not be be moving at all that it could get worse over time.

    Of course if this is normal then I'll be fine with it.

    Thanks for any help, this is my first AW s im abit paranoid.

    If there is slight play on the band, it's likely not a big deal. If the band is protruding or not seated properly near the band port, then it could be an issue. I would test the band when attached to the Watch and tug on it from side to side, if it does not slide out, it's likely fine.

    All my bands have some play. Some are worse than others.
    I was concerned at first but haven't had any issues of the band coming in-done

    Thanks for your replies so far.

    Update (to put my fears at ease - cannot be doing with an exchange or fear it's going to go be a future issue).

    When the watching is laying flat on a surface and is subsequently picked up, I can feel a 'click' coming from both straps as if there's movement.

    Is this normal? If so, I can finally rest easy and enjoy my new toy.

    Thanks in advance :)
