    A couple of times in the last week I've locked out my phone with 'bad password' while changing the watch band. I suppose I could be a whole lot more attentive, maybe even wear gloves o_O

    Just wondering if anyone knows of a trick or two in order to change the band w/o accidentally triggering a false password.

    Turn off the watch before changing the band.

    Gosh, how embarrassing....A classic example of how I could not see the forest because there are way too many tree's obstructing my view.:oops:

    Actually, I was hoping for a more elegant solution but accept that it probably doesn't exist. I change the watch band 2x a day, before and after going to the gym. I've only turned my watch off twice in the past month.

    Anyway, thanks for lifting the curtain on the obvious.

    Turn off the password for a minute. Easier than turning off

    What I wound up doing is fold a small cloth over the watch so that the screen does not detect my touch. Not elegant but it works.

    I turn the watch upside down on my lap and haven't had a problem.

    How about using the adapter which can be left in place and using a tool to pop out the spring bars like traditional watches, to change the strap only. [​IMG]

    While that would work, it is slower than swapping out the connector itself. It also requires a tool that could be lost or misplaced.

    The Apple Watch band connector is unlikely to break no matter how often you change out your watch band.
