I forgot to put this in the WDW review post, and that one’s already long.
Here is what the MagicBand looked like on my wrist from the top:
Kind of okay, right? But here is what it looked like from the side:
My wrists are the teeniest-tiniest parts of my body. The part with the transmitter couldn’t be bent and was longer than that part of my Montgomery Burns-esque wrist. So no matter how I turned it, it stuck out. It wasn’t uncomfortable, but it never truly became unnoticeable.
I’d like to see it redesigned into more of a watch-like design. Hell, put a cheap digital timepiece in it so it can replace a watch and make it buzz 15 minutes before a FastPass+ or dining reservation time.
From WM: They were uncomfortable for me because they were rubbery and sweaty and stiff. The stiff part was too small for my wrist. I didn’t want to keep it on the whole time because I didn’t want a fat white tan line. I kept it in my pocket. I would be willing to pay $20 for a more comfortable version.
Can’t we skip the bracelet and go straight to the RFID chip embedded in the upper arm?
Did you try taking the gray section off and just using the colored part of the band? That may have made it a bit more comfortable.
Unfortunately, the bracelet would have been too small if I did that. I think I’m two holes into the gray size. I know they’ll make them better.
