    Give me one now Apple - I know you are already thinking this for the next generation :mad:

    As much as I can't wait to get my 42mm SS w/ black sport band in a few weeks (in which the band felt amazing), I'm hoping the next gen comes in a plus size watch face just like the iPhone line.

    Regardless, still excited about this first run and look forward to what's coming in the future.

    46mm Is too big imo

    I think imo 46mm is too big for apple watch... I have a Hamilton X Copter and it's 46mm I have a small wrist and it's too big but i received it as a gift and love it non the less.

    My Breitling's that are 46mm are just perfect...I think the Plus should only be compared to a Super Avenger type of scenario.

    if people, especially women, aren't buying the 38mm sized watch then they just might move the size up a notch.

    I'm curious to know what the breakdown of watches sold that are 38mm vs 42mm.

    I have large wrists and I find that the 42mm is too small. I am one that would love a 46 or even a 50mm watch.

    Oh....

    Apple watch Plus? A 225mm-300mm band option would make more sense in todays world. :rolleyes:

    Apple Watch Plus? You mean a 3GS strapped on a wrist band? :p

    For those people with NBA player sized wrists, 46mm Apple Watch might be a pretty good thing indeed.

    For everyone else, it will look like a DIESEL saucer (read: cheap junk).

    Why not just strap on your iPhone to your wrist.

    Someone is going to complain a 60mm watch is not big enough, they want a 70mm.

    I guess it's amazing the iPad Air doesn't make phone calls, right? I mean, it does have cellular antenna and uses a SIM card.

    honestly, I think 46mm would make sense for people with thicker wrists.
    bigger watches are hugely popular (Rolex DSSD, Panerai, Breitling, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore, etc) and it makes sense to have multiple sizes for a wristwatch since there are two genders, multiple races and the resulting variation in wrist size is huge .

    Apple Watch Plus - 46mm

    I went in for my try on wearing a 50mm TW Steel and to be honest the 42mm looked tiny in comparison. Yes TW Steel make 'oversized' watches and I have gotten used to them but I really think for larger wrists 46 mm is a better choice. Traditional watch sizes have also crept up over the years with 44mm standard on a lot of premium fashion/mid range luxury watches. The 'small' 42mm size has been the main disappointment for me regarding Apple Watch.

    +1 for an Apple Watch Plus. 46mm or more would be great.

    That "Inconvenient Truth" article has some interesting opinions about size (he thinks both of the Apple Watches are much too small).

    (Note: I couldn't find links for the pics that illustrate this quote, but it's worth going directly to the article to see how they support his point.)

    ^ - A well written article which I fear has many truths!

    ^ - I quoted it because he had such strong opinions on size which might be relevant to those interested in this thread's topic. However, I disagreed with almost everything he wrote - - pure clickbait.

    I'm going to go the extra mile and strap my 27" iMac 5K to my wrist. I'll be able to read MacRumors in ultra high definition everywhere I go!

    I was being serious - you guys are just being silly now

    The 42mm is a sweet spot (really enjoyed the try on experience and can't wait for it), and I'm not a watch expert, but I personally would like a slightly bigger watch face. If that means 46mm then yes 46.

    My main point was I can see Apple making this definitely - an Apple Watch Plus to go with the iPhone line and rumored iPad line.

    Breitlings are round. Square watches are a whole other ballgame. A 46mm square would be HUGE.

    ----------

    If the 46mm had more room for battery and thus a better battery life, I would be game.
