Hello. I'm wanting to get the Black Leather loop for my SG Sport. I don't really have a way to measure my wrist, so I'm wondering which loop would be the best? I have average size wrist so I'm thinking Medium would be fine? Which one did you guys order? Thanks.

You should definitely go to the store. I was between sizes, but I liked the extra strap on the large. You may feel differently or need one or the other

I ordered the large and my wrist is about average. I actually tried it on at my fitting appointment. It felt so great, that I cancelled my order for Milanese Loop to order the Black Leather Loop.

I have an 8" wrist and was able to pull off the medium one. There wasn't a lot of overlap though, so if you have similar wrists as me, go with the Large

Find a ruler you can print + cut out to wrap around your wrist for measuring. If you're in the size range for the medium I'd go for it. I have 153mm wrists and the medium starts at 150mm, and when I tried it on, there was still >1 inch of tightening room, so there is some leeway with that size.

If you're right on the edge between the medium and large sizes, you could be fine either way, but in that case you should definitely try on.

It depends on your wrist size, but go with large since you said average size.

My wrist is about 181 mm. I went with medium. The large fit but came up just to the watch face when tight. The medium overlapped by 7 or so segments. There was no clear choice but I decided the leather might stretch over time so I went with medium.

My situation exactly.

Get a ruler or measuring tape, and thread or paper or anything flexible that's larger than your wrist. You CAN measure your wrist, LOL.

my wrist is 189mm. Do you think that is definitely too big for the medium?
Yes, you need the large for your 189mm wrist. My wrist is 180mm. I measured accurately with my metric tailor's tape and have tried on large and medium at the Apple Store side by side. Apple's sizing chart says medium will work up to 185mm, but for me it felt like there was just enough overlap to keep the medium band securely on my 180mm wrist, so any less overlap would feel less secure, and 9mm less overlap would feel like it would fall off.
