    Wife’s mom bought her a 40mm Series 4 LTE. She tried it for a week and doesn’t like it. She lives the simple life. Doesn’t want to have to charge it and stuff.

    Gave it to me. But wants to be able to throw it on her wrist when her mom visits, so I can’t sell and get a bigger one.

    Think it’s too small? Does it look funny on my wrist? I’m not exactly a small dude.

    Never had an Apple Watch or even really considered getting one, but don’t want it to go to waste.

    If you get the same style, color and band in a 44mm, would the mom realize the size is different if your wife wore it while she was there?

    You could sell it and get the bigger one. I doubt anyone would notice.

    First off why would your wife need to wear it whenever her mom visits? She could tell mom that it's on the charger Or she could tell her that although it was a great gift, she doesn't really need it for her daily life.
    Secondly, i don't this it matters what size you wear; but if you worry about how long the battery life is then I recommend returning it for the larger size (44mm) assuming this is the series 4.

    Its a nice watch and as long you eyesight is good you can wear whatever size you want. If not already in use you should use the larger band and wear it a a notch wider. You also could get a colored band and emphasize the watch. To small or to big - that is no provable fact but opinion and everybody‘s got a different one. So - wear it manly - and don’t ask for opinions.
    (In my opinion on this forum are a lot of wrists that should wear the 40mm case - but sadly they don’t ask for my opinion.)

    Lol are you serious?
    If so, it looks like your wrist is suffocating. I don't really care what size anyone chooses; it matters on what your looking for. Whether it be longer battery life, comfort or any other reason.
    Off the top of my head, I bought the 44mm because it was only $30 more and compatible with my older 42mm bands.

    1. It is too small on your wrist.
    2. Doesn’t matter, it’s better to use it rather than wasting it.

    In short, keep wearing it.

    If it's still within the window that Apple allows for returns/exchanges, exchange it for the larger model. If her mother notices and asks about it, your wife could simply say she preferred the larger size, so she exchanged it.

    Out of window. And likely will notice. Mother made huge deal about how they were twins, except she got the bigger one.

    Yea I guess I did quote it wrong. I’m traveling.

    I wear it with the crown away from the wrist golfer style. It keeps the back of your hand from pressing on the crown. You can configure it that way in General - Watch Orientation.

    What does it mean to wear a watch "golfer style"? I did research that expression, but to no avail...

    To the OP, I empathize with your situation. I suggest that when possible, not to feed the type of dysfunctionality with Mother that you seemed to have described. On the other hand, if keeping the watch helps to sustain the relationship sufficiently, then perhaps the watch really hasn't gone to waste...

    You may want to consider obtaining an armored case for the watch to bulk up its appearance on your wrist...
