    Ordered a Sport with white band in 42mm, but after looking at images online I'm thinking the 38mm may have been the better option.

    Anyone else ordered a 42mm, and now thinking the same thing?

    The 42mm looks kind of big!

    Hmm ...

    Tried on both 42mm and 38mm and I reckon 38mm will get consigned to just a handful of strap options, or even obsolete, when V2.0 comes out. It's really small!

    I am in the same boat -- but to put my worries to ease, I just set up an apt at one of our local Apple Stores to try the watch on. If I ordered the wrong size, no way I'm going to cancel my order then order 38MM. Not with those horrible delivery dates.

    I ordered 42mm then panicked and ordered 38mm too. Had a hands on in store and the 38mm looks tiny in person and on my wrist.

    Trust me, if you're a guy, 42mm is the way to go. Cancelled 38mm straight away.

    Based on what some people are saying - that the 38mm is actually tiny - I'm sure if you hate the 42mm some 38mm owner would pay the difference and you could just swap :p

    I'm a guy, and I ordered the 38mm after trying on both sizes. I didn't order until I had a chance to try them on in store and for my wrist, 38mm was better. With the sport bands, I was on the very smallest hole on the 42mm, and the second or third biggest for the 38mm. I just thought the 42 looked too big on my wrist.

    But yes, if you're a big chunky guy, 42 is definitely the way to go, in fact you probably won't even be able to get the 38mm sport band to close on your wrist. On the other hand, if my wrists were even a little bit thinner, the 42mm band would have been too loose on my wrist which I reckon would mess with the fitness tracking, and that's the main reason I want the watch.

    The downside of waiting until I tried them on before ordering is that I don't get my watch until June :(

    I don't think Apple would alienate many of their female Apple watch customers/children with smaller wrists.
