    Remember all the naysayers telling everyone Apple would never make a bigger phone as there's real no use of a big screen. Well here we are, iPhone 6 & 6 Plus have dramatically changed our experience with everything we do on iOS, even more so on the 6 Plus if I may argue. For large sized hands like me, 6 Plus does make absolute sense, just as a larger watch will make sense for those with huge wrists. Just as 6 Plus allows us to do so much more than what was possible with 5S previously, the utility of a larger than currently offered watch size CANT be overstated! I know Apple probably has a larger watch in their plans even while somewhat doubtful, I just wish Apple would hurry up and get it out already. The utility of a larger sized watch for someone with huge wrists like me is simply innumerable! After all who wouldn't want to do & control more stuff with their watch & do it better than they currently can?

    The wrist is only so big.

    I wear a diesel 51mm watch & that is pretty much normal stuff for me! There's definitely scope for a bigger sized watch you believe it or not!

    I'd definitely go for a slightly bigger Apple Watch. My wrist is 75mm wide, so my current 42mm Apple Watch is only 56% the width of my wrist.
    I think that allows a little wriggle room for a bigger watch. Not that I'm unhappy with the way the 42 looks, I loves me Apple Watch I does :D

    THIS! There is certainly market for huge wristed people like us! All the limitations on the watch due to its small size would largely get alleviated if Apple just goes even 4mm further in size than the current iteration (and thats hardly a lot, there are already mainstream watches from popular brands that go upto 51mm). The watch then will become the ultimate device at least for us huge wristers. Why should anything be held back when its serves a greater purpose, is actually possible, infinitely more useful & has a definite market?

    I think there is market for bigger watches. Just look at some of the Casio sports watches. But definitely only for tech nerds!

    i started a thread about this a few days ago.
    not just a bigger watch, but one made out of a heavier steel, allowing the watch to be a stand alone, without the need for the iPhone pairing.
    i am a hard core watch guy.

    There may be a market for it but that market is small compared to those for the existing sizes so I think it is highly unlikely Apple will ever make bigger versions of the :apple:Watch. It's not worth their while to do so.

    Riiight, like the market for large phones didn't exist at all. The iPhone 6 and 6 + have been unmitigated failures. :rolleyes:

    Just because you don't want it doesn't mean someone won't buy it. If anything, it's looking more and more like the 38mm watches have a limited market.

    I agree. I would have opted for a 46mm version if they had made one. Honestly based on current watch trends I think Apple should have considered putting a little more space between the two watches. Like 38 and 45. Most of my daily wear watches are between 44-48mm and also have many at 50mm.
