i wanted to know if anyone regrets buying a 38mm model and not the 42mm?
No, it fits me perfectly. I have 145 mm wrists, so the 42 mm is too big. Only thing that bothers me is the lack of an Apple leather loop. I have a third party knockoff, but the quality is poor.
No, I tried on a 42 and it was too large for my wrist.
Nope, I returned a 42mm and bought a 38mm as it just looks better.
Why do you feel regret, assuming you are feeling it even a little bit to ask question?
Maybe we could help convince you, 38mm is right for you, assume that what you are looking for?
185 mm wrist here and I'm happy with mine!
I'm a big guy, and I just got the 42mm, didn't even look at the 38mm. I would get would what you think is right and go, not even second guess.
nope, I don't care for large watches. Love my 38mm.
I tried on the 38mm at the Apple store, and just by looking at it, I knew it was gonna be too small. I am 6"2, and it just looks proportional to my height.
No regret here
Seeing as my Apple Watch Sport was a gift from my dad for Christmas, I was worried that it'd be tiny on me, I even asked him if he's got a receipt so I could exchange it for the bigger 42 model and pay the difference lol.
But after wearing it from then til now, it's grown on me, it's actually an alright size on me, but I do think that with the Apple Watch 2, I'll probably go for the 42 (though I think it's best if I try one on first before really settling for that model)
I have 170mm wrists. After trying them both in at the store, I went with the 38mm even though the 42 did not seem that much larger. I just like smaller watches so the 38 looked and felt better to me. After five months I still think I chose the right size for me.
I got the 42mm and I would like one even bigger! I'd be happy with a 52mm watch. But then I'm 6'1" and 275 lbs.
Perhaps the new iPhone 6C will do the trick.
I got 42mm Sport at Christmas and my first thought when I strapped it on was how small and light it was. I am only 5'8 but I usually wear a Breitling and the Apple watch must be less than a quarter of the weight - it feels like nothing.
No. I have 140mm wrists and so 38mm is the perfect size. I knew from the start that the 42mm was going to be too big. After I pre-ordered the 38mm I went to try it on and it was the perfect fit. I also tried on the 42mm and it was too big. My boyfriend who was with me at the time laughed and said it looked ridiculous and said he hoped I hadn't ordered that size.
There's no way I could wear the 42 MM - I have tiny wrists (127 MM). My husband got the 42 MM for Christmas and he loves it - I'm jealous of his battery life - it ends a day with 50-70% and I end it with 30%...we aren't using the workout app and we have the same apps installed. He just has a bigger battery than me. The only reason I would look to upgrade my watch to a new version is if the battery for the 38 MM was better. That's my only issue. I still manage to last the day but would like to have more battery life.
My wrist is 155mm and I bought the 42mm. My wife has the same size wrist and she bought the 38mm.
It's kind of strange, but her Watch looks too small on me and she thinks mine looks too big on her even though our wrists are the same... Different widths??
I guess it is a matter of perspective or your preference for a larger vs smaller face. I have always bought large face watches and she has always liked small dainty watches.
Either way, neither of us regret the size we have and will not be swapping them anytime soon.
The only reason I went with 42 is because I didn't want it looking dainty, even though I'm not a big guy.
6'2" with 7" wrists, and I went 38mm. It just reads less like a smartwatch on the wrist, and, whether it's a smartwatch or a Rolex, I prefer modest sizes over chunky watches. People are often suprised how relatively small something like a classic Rolex Explorer I is when compared to trendy watches at Macy's.
I thought I would regret it but I'm glad I went with the smaller one.
I ordered a 42mm bestbuy open box for a good price. Too big. I am keeping my current 38mm. My wrist is small-medium size. I'm an electrician and wear the watch 24/7. I can see myself bumping and scraping the 42mm much more than the 38mm. I'm also a fan and currently own a few large g shocks.
The worst thing about the Apple Watch is making your other watches obsolete.
My large G Shock and the rest of my watches are sitting on my dresser collecting dust...
Bought the 38mm because of the price.
It bothers me that some 42mm can be bought for $250 now
