    Is the pixel density the same for the 38 and 42?

    Yes. They're both 326 pixels per inch, just like the iPhone 6.

    Pixel density is the same because the resolution is lower on the 38mm model, just as the resolution is lower on the iPhone 6 versus the 6 Plus.

    This is what I keep finding when searching:

    38mm 1.32" screen 272×340 pixels at 326 ppi
    42mm 1.5" screen 312×390 pixels at 326 ppi

    True, though the iPhone 6 Plus has a much higher resolution than the iPhone 6, enough so that it also has a higher pixel density at 401ppi (vs 326 for the iPhone 6)
