    I am definitely going to buy another Apple Watch soon and I used to have a 38mm SGS. I am eyeing the 42mm gold sport with the midnight blue band and just wanted an opinion if the 42mm looked too big on my wrists. I do like the classic watch size of the 38mm so to speak and if I got the 38mm gold sport I would be left to pay another $50 for the color band I want anyways.

    Here are a few pics from my initial try on with the 38mm vs42mm image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg

    Looks fine to me... our wrists are about the same size and I got the 42 and am quite happy with it.

    What size is your wrist? I keep wanting to switch back and forth from the 38 to 42 and back. My wrist is small so the bands for the 38 fit me better but I want the larger size of the 42.

    38mm looks way better, IMO. 42mm often reads like too much computer screen, IMO.

    Thanks everyone. I still need to measure my wrist. I think i will go with the 42mm though! If it looks fine and has better battery life I'm sold.

    I am someone that doesn't like the look of a watch that is too large for a wrist. For your wrist, the 42 mm absolutely looks like the right size.

    I thought about this aspect, too. The 38mm is closer to the size watch I usually wear and I was worried I would end up banging a bigger screen on more stuff than usual but that will probably happen anyways.

    I have skinny wrists and have never regretted buying the 42mm.

    42mm looks fine, you won't think of the size after a few days
