    Almost an exact 6” wrist here, with a 38mm that looks great

    I think my 6 inches wrist look better with 38mm, but end up switching to the 42mm because of the battery life.

    Glad I found this thread. I'm a thin guy with skinny wrists and the 38mm case fits perfectly. I think 42mm would be a bit overkill (although there was time I considered getting the 42mm).

    My wife has smaller wrists than me and the 38mm actually looks a bit big on her, so 42mm would definitely be too much.

    I have 5.5" wrists and I actually preferred the look of the 38mm on my wrist but I went with the 42mm for 2 reasons. Mainly because I need glasses to read things up close but I didn't wanna have to wear glasses when working out to read the watch metrics and I was able to get by without needing my glasses to read the watch on the 42mm quickly. The 38mm, not so much. The fonts are a lot smaller. Also because of better battery life.

    Even after increasing font size on the 38mm the 42mm font is able to be made even larger. When you need reading glasses it makes a difference. I went from a 38mm to the 42mm it’s much easier to read than the 38mm with both fonts increased.

    iPhone on your wrist is what you need.

    Really, are your rude comments necessary? Think some would have better things to do then troll about something that will eventually even happen to themselves, matter of time.

    can you give me info on this?

    could be a good work around with a slim wrist and 42mm.

    I just got my 42mm Nike s3 and gave my 42mm s2 to DW and she said it worked well despite the watch covers entire width of her wrist. And the band was a third part milanese loop btw.

    After wearing my 42mm daily since 9/22, my 38mm looks so small on my skinny 6" wrist. I only wear the 38mm at home at night for sleep tracking. It looks even feminine..

    ~6.5" wrists. 42mm looks great and reads much more easily.
