Just looking for some outside opinion. Have only really ever owned one watch, the Pebble, so I'm no watch expert. What do you think? Should I get the 38mm or 42mm?
here they are on my wrist:

The one to the left is 38mm; the one to the right is 42mm.

Just redid the pictures; think I accidentally uploaded pictures of the same size last time. Should be easier to see now. 38mm looks just a tad smaller. Hmmmm....

Also I should mention: I will only get the 42mm if it is $399; otherwise I probably wont have enough to get the 42mm. But I doubt it would be more than $50 so I should be good.

If you're getting the sport, I'm willing to bet it'll be $350.

Judging from these pictures only, I'd say get the larger version. Your wrist doesn't seem particularly small to me.

I was also wondering about which one to get, I have thin wrists so I'm not sure, however i will probably go to the Apple Store to try one on.

I have very thin wrists, and wear watches every day. I just printed out the PDF that was linked to (thanks) and compared. Both of my "dress" watches are the exact same thickness, and same dimensions (except being circular).

I also have a Casio Pathfinder that is larger than the Apple Watch in both thickness and H/W.

I wear these all day with no issue.

It seems to me that the Apple Watch is pretty much the same size as "standard" men's watches. the large one it is for me.

I did the same on my boring cold Sunday...not sure what size to go for. Smaller and discrete or larger- although my wrists are quite large so either may work well. That's the 42mm

That looks small. Any smaller would look like a kids/woman's watch on your wrists.

Any more advice or opinions from anyone else?
42. Looks better on your wrist size. Hard to tell from the pictures, but your wrist looks somewhat like the size of mine and I wear a 42mm watch, which fits very well on my wrist. Only difference is, mine is circular where as the watch will be square.

I don't think it is wise or sensible to say the 38mm looks like a kids/woman's watch. There's something to be said for a smaller watch as well as a bigger one. I actually prefer the 38mm on my wrist as it looks discrete. Relating size to sexes/age is plain wrong. However, each to their own.
