Should I swap for a 42mm?

    I've had my watch since May so can't exchange my 38mm with Apple.

    I had try on appointments and decided on the 38mm because I have small wrists for a man. Overall I am very slim.

    After owning a watch for some time now and taking more note of the watches men wear I am starting to think I am wearing a woman's watch?

    It doesn't seem to bother most men with small wrists, they still tend to wear large watches.

    When it comes to watches, is wrist size actually relevant? (Apart from he strap)

    Looking at the additional bands I'd like to upgrade to, I feel the 38mm loop or bracelet look feminine.


    I've attached a pic.

    Anyone else had this thought?

    I am trying to find best way of swapping without losing too much money

    I think it looks fine on your wrist. Not too small.

    In all honesty I wouldn't of even known it was the 32mm version if you didn't mention it. That watch looks good on your wrist.

    I think the watch looks fine. What size is your wrist? I am looking at getting an Apple Watch and I have the same dilemma. My wrist size is about a 165mm. I really like the look of the gold and navy sport but that combination only comes in the 42mm size and I am afraid it will look to large on me.

    Thanks

    Yes I agree haha and I think it looks great on you. Do you have any photos with the 42mm?

    Just get the 38mm gold and buy the midnight navy band. They sell it in 38mm.

    38mm looks great and classic on your wrist. I'm tall with average sized wrists, and I still went 38mm.

    If you look at the extra bands that Apple sales, the womans bands only come in 38mm and the mens only come in 42mm. I think you have one of the unisex bands and it doesn't look bad. I'd keep your watch and save your money for the Apple Watch 2. No need to buy needlessly on a first gen product.
