    I'm hoping that having an Apple watch will make it much more reasonable in the future to upgrade to the bigger plus size phones. The biggest factor for me choosing the iPhone 6 over the 6+ was that it was much smaller and could fit in my pocket at the gym. With the capabilities of the :apple:watch I won't have this excuse anymore. I think that it will be much more reasonable in the future to have a bigger phone because we wil be able to have a lot of the same features that drew us to a smaller phone on the watch.... But only time will tell.

    I'm kinda the other way round. I'm getting an Apple Watch in part because I have a 6+ and it's a hassle taking it out of my pocket.

    I'm a third combination of this idea, I switched to the iPhone 6 Plus in anticipation of the watch... and I can't wait to get it, this "phone" is a pain to pull out of my pocket 150 times a day, but, I do like it a lot when I'm doing more in-depth use, like reading or playing a game.

    I think the watch and 6+ will make a dynamic duo.

    I've been thinking about doing this too. I probably will with the update in the fall, and just keep the 6 until then.

    It's one of the biggest reasons I'm going for the watch, after a short stint with a pebble I really liked the 6+ having a partner in crime

    I feel the same. I have a 6 Plus and whilst I love the screen size especially for things like Internet, Facebook, Twitter for example it can be a bit cumbersome taking it out of my pocket. My Pebble currently goes part way to alleviate this buts obviously not as functional or sophisticated and the :apple:Watch and iPhone 6 Plus will make a better combination.

    I am also looking forward to not having to take out my 6+ out so much.

    I love my 6+ but its a bit too heavy in the pockets of my shorts when I go running. Looking forward to leaving it at home and using my watch instead.

    I traded my 6 for a 6+ back in December for this reason as well. I knew I'd be getting an  Watch and figured that would make having a bigger phone less of a PITA. Turns out I prefer the 6+ after all, anyway :)
