    Screen real-estate made the difference for me in upgrading.

    Funny how just a week ago with my series 3 I didn’t look at it as dated at all. Now it looks like an old piece of crap with giant bezels like it’s a freaking picture frame.

    I don’t even wanna watch the apple keynote later this month. I’m gonna look at my iPad Pro 10.5 that I love with such hatred

    I love my 10.5’ Pro too. I say this but hopefully I don’t get iPad Pro w/FaceTime envy and upgrade.

    Did you mean to compare between the old 42mm to the 44mm?

    The new 40mm is the version with the rounded corners.

    I keep catching myself admiring how big the screen state of the 44mm really is. So much better than my old 42mm

    My 44mm screen seems so much sharper and vivid along with the extra size. That alone made me upgrade but it does not stop there. The faster CPU allows to watch to show much more now with no hesitation compared to the AW3.

    If you have any doubts, go to the Apple store and see for yourself.

    Most people don’t use full screen pictures though.

    Indeed. On the mobile app, they do have ‘Compare case size’ renditions of the 40 mm and 44 mm for comparison.

    It doesn't look like a big difference until you've used them both in person. It's a different experience all together in my opinion. Feels less cramped.

    The first time I entered a PIN while changing watches, I was blown away by how much of a difference just the number pad screen was on the 44mm.
