Can anyone post photos of them wearing their 44mm watch? Only if you have thin/small wrists as I want to see how it would look! I tried it in store but I’m not convinced if I should go for it. I’m more inclined towards 40mm but the 44mm has a bigger screen.

Not to say looks aren’t important, but a device like this is made to be functional as well as stylish. If you feel the 44 will be easier to see and use, get it and don’t worry about the looks. It’s not THAT much bigger, and it will look great anyway.

I was contemplating between the two sizes and in the end I chose the 44mm. Quite happy with my decision :)

people with small wrists, you just got to aks yourself: What would I like; a big wrist-device (44mm) or a watch (40mm).

I have seen a lot photos online, of 44mm Watches on small wrists. In now way I see them as a Watch but simply as a (big) wrist device.

I respect everyone's choice/preference ofcourse.

But some of the 44mm Watches on small wrists look really funny/huge and they giganticly stand out on people with small wrists.
If that's what you are after, then certainly the 44mm will fit! ;)

all of the above is ofcourse just my humble opinion and point of view

LOVE LOVE LOVE the bigger size. Just got my AppleWatch5 44mm aluminum. This is the band that came with it--silicone. Used the small/med option of the two provided. This is a very comfortable fit and visually I can see everything well, and am happy for the extra battery life. My wrists are 144mm around, or 5.5". One thing I have not yet found is a metal band that will fit my wrist. Seriously. There must be a lot of tinier women than me--I am 6 feet tall. It is amazing to me that every band seems to go down only to 6 or 6.5 inches. Let me know if you find a metal (esp Milanese) band that is small.
