    I know there are many post on Apple watch fits, for people with skinny wrist, but they are not helping me find what I am looking for.
    So if you have a very skinny wrist, can you upload a picture of your apple watch ON your wrist AND and the SIZE of your wrist.
    I have a very skinny wrist, and I want to know how it looks on others. I actually haven't measured my wrist yet (still looking for my measuring tape). But for facts I know it is smaller than 140mm.

    If you don't receive many photo's of others wrist sizes, this thread below has two pictures attached from other users with thin wrists.

    My wrist is 150 mm and I wear a 38mm watch on the third largest hole of the s/m band.

    How does the actual watch look on the wrist. Like does it look oversized on your arm? Can you please attach a photo with the front of the watch on your wrist?

    Thank you, but I am trying to find a Apple Watch user that has a wrist size on 140mm or below.

    I understand that. It's just a thread you can use for reference if you search throughout the Apple Watch forum, there are the threads already related to yours.

    A US dollar bill is 156mm. Can you fold one in thirds length wise, wrap it around your wrist and snap a picture and post it?

    This will give us an idea the size of your wrist

    Is a US bill the same size as a CAD bill?

    I hope this isn't some wrist fetish you have that you're trying to satisfy ...

    Left wrist is 6-1/4" in circumference. Worn above the wrist bone. Nike S2 42mm with the S/M strap. I use the 4th hole from the end. Fits at a medium tightness.

    My series 0 came with an additional strap part in the box for medium to small wrists. If they still do that it might help.

    I have a medical condition and my wrists are tiny!

    I mean tiny.
    the jewellers though my watch was worn by a 3 year old!
    my watch fits the wrist of my fiancee teddy bear which stands at 1 foot tall.

    Will take photo to prove it as no body believe me when I tell them.

    For this reason I cannot wear a smart watch :(

    mine are 120mm to 125mm rough measurements.
    Probably closer to 120mm

    current classic watch (non smart) is 38mm across.

    Sounds like you don't have an Apple Store nearby. Can you try on any other watches were you live?

    elf69 just mentioned his/her classic watch size of 38 mm; if it's a round watch, it could be around 40-41 mm lug-to-lug (my own 38mm classic watch is a little "taller", end-to-end, than my 42mm Apple Watch).

    So, in lieu of being able to try on an Apple Watch, I'd say to find any other watch that's 38mm-ish from top to bottom, then extrapolate from there. Keep in mind that the AW is still a bit thick if you compare it to most regular quartz watches; it's not my thinnest watch, but it's not my thickest, either.

    38mm is just the face left to right.

    it is 45mm top to bottom of the arms.
    I have a stainless steel link strap with around 9 links removed at jewellers to make it fit.

    this is my classic watch I'm wearing right now:

    [​IMG]
    It's a 2009 limited edition.
    My nearest apple approved reseller is only an hour away so might go look weekend.
    No actually apple store in my county though. Nearest is 2 to 2 and half hours drive for genuine apple store in next county.

    123mm wrist with 38mm watch and Apple sport loop.

    There is still at least a minimum of 15mm allowance for making the band tighter so will definitely fit on a 120mm wrist with this band.

    The OP is probably asking about the size of the watch face, not the band. I’m female with a very tiny hand/wrist—but I like large watches. I’ve been fine with large men’s round watches, but the rectangular shape makes it a difficult choice for me.

    No. She’s asking about both, and specifically the watch band length.

    I was actually more concerned about the size of your wrist and the watch face. Like if it looks overly large on thin wrists. Not to concerned about the band size, because I heard from many before it fits very thin wrists.

    I have 5 1/4 inch or roughly 133mm wrist and I wear the 38mm stainless steel with the Milanese band and it’s just fine.
    Just get a 38mm watch and you’ll be fine.

    I have a very skinny wrist as well measuring 139.5 mm. A little less than 5.5 in. I have the 42mm watch using the smallest band. I would love to find a smaller more attractive band and have been searching for months. It seems as though someone would make small bands. My husband won the watch in a golf tournament and he doesn’t have an Apple Watch. So, I got it and have loved it from day one. I was not able to return it for the 38mm watch. Th small band that came with the watch fits me in the absolutely last hole available.

    SE is currently charging -no photo yet.
    Looks amazing though has been sliding up my wrist recently -I find 3rd hole in strap most comfortable.
    I use 38mm with white band.
