    I would love it if someone could compare their Apple watch 38mm to the Apple Store's "Actual Size". You can compare the case sizes in the app, so I just wanted to see if it's the actual size

    I'm curious to what the purpose of these pictures is. Why would Apple not put the real actual size in the app?

    I've heard that the actual size on the Apple Store App is actually smaller than the real 38mm. I might cancel my 38mm if it's too small

    So why are the pictures provided not proof that isn't the case? If the (real) 38mm watch is covering the Watch (image) on the store app and you can't see the image of the watch behind the real watch, then the image can't be bigger than the actual watch. Right? What am I missing here?

    Ok ok, just got home from Avengers with the wife and kids. EXCELLENT!!!! So, yeah the actual Watch lines up exactly to the model on the app. You want pictures if it next to it?

    Why? Do you think that he's lying to you? Or that Apple is lying to you? You're wasting people's time, someone's already tested it out for you.

    I had the same thought before I got my 42. The app made it look way bigger than it felt when I put it on. So, I put the 42 up to the app and it was exactly the same size.

    I think what's really going on is there's some optical illusion where the app size is technically accurate, but your brain enlarges it in that context.

    Don't rely on the app's 'actual size' picture to determine whether the 38 or 42 is best. I think you have to try it on in person. But if that's not an option, just remember the app makes the watch feel larger than it actually does. Technically the same though!

    Well the reason for that should be obvious if ya think about it.. The image on and iphone/ipad is two dimensional. This means you lose the curvature of the physical item. The curvature changes the way the shape is perceived when you are wearing it. It'll appear slightly smaller in real life.
