    For my fellow women  fans, which Watch did you/would you order?

    I pre-ordered a 38mm Space Gray watch on April 10. I was on the fence about the 38mm vs. 42mm, but when I tried them on in the  Store, I was happy with what I ordered. The 42 didn't seem overly big, but I think fashion-wise, I will be happier in the long run with the 38. I like how it looks in the picture with my bracelet stack.

    What do you think?

    Looks good on you! When I re-enter the dating scene, meeting a girl who wears an Apple Watch is going to be a huge plus in my book. :p

    Looks awesome - great choice!! I got the 38mm sport (blue band). I also ordered the white and Milanese bands.

    I will be using mine primarily for fitness tracking and look forward to ditching my Fitbit. My Fitbit bands look pretty awful and I hope the  sport bands don't wear as much.

    Looks awesome! Maybe it's just me, but I also think it looks pretty fancy along with your bracelets!

    I second what odds said as well. Because of the huge inner-geek in me, I'm going to be instantly attracted to any girl who wears an Apple Watch lol!

    Looks great on you!

    I also ordered a 38mm white sport band. I finally went into a store a few days ago to actually look at the watches and I think the 38 will work for me. I guess I'm used to bigger screens since I've had the 6+ since September, but I don't think I need that big of a screen on my wrist.

    Looks great and agree it looks good with the bracelets. I ordered the 42mm white sports but I'm a fatso so my wrists can take the bigger screen size # I'm also used to the bigger screen on the 6 plus and am blind as a bat so I think all in all its the best choice for me.

    Tried 38mm Milanese loop, sport, and modern buckle. Also tried a 42mm just to confirm it was too big for me. Sport was a little to chunky for my taste. Ordered a 38mm ML but I liked the modern buckle a lot too! My bracelet is all the way up my arm because the apple employee would not let me have anything on my wrist next to the watch; oh well!

    38 space grey with black band. I also wear a lot of bracelets, so have been laying them out so I know which to wear with the watch, and which to wear on the other wrist. Hehe!!

    38mm brushed aluminum/white, but I expect to be able to buy all sorts of crazy aftermarket bands by the time my white band starts getting grubby.

    Sadly I really wasn't able to see how it looked on my wrist, because I had one of those drill-sergeant Apple store employees for my try-on who wouldn't let me move my arm from the 'extended straight over cushioned pad' position, or touch the buckle or anything.

    (This isn't a knock, I love my local Apple store, this lady just apparently took the training very, very seriously.)

    I'd say that would be one of the more valid "#Gate"s, as the thing is supposed to be water resistant and any gaps like that would definitely compromise that.

    The wife thought she wanted a 42mm milanese loop. In a matter of minutes during the try on in the store she changed her mind to a 38mm with leather pink band.

    That looks really nice. I just sent my wife this pic. She ordered the 38 white sport.

    Hmm... I didn't notice this gap at all while in the store. Maybe a shadow?

    I did really like the digital crown, btw. It was pretty responsive and felt nice to use.

    Do you have a picture of the bottom side of your wrist wearing the modern buckle? How did the modern buckle feel? I'm asking because I bought the 38mm stainless with black modern buckle as a surprise wedding gift for my fiancée. Was the modern buckle your favorite as far as feel and looks?

    They did make me take off the brackets during the time I was demoing. But I asked to put them on momentarily so I could see how it looked. I typically wear a lot of bracelets, so I wanted to make sure I liked what I was getting. Haha! The  employee let me put them on & take a quick pic!


    Thanks! Yeah, I plan on buying multiple bands as well. I love the Milanese band. I also really liked the leather loop. I hope they'll make it for 38mm watches eventually. The modern buckle was nice, too!

    I looked on some of my photos and all had this gap.

    Maybe all ladys can post their wristsize to the photos? #

    I pre-ordered the silver 38 mm sports watch with white band. After trying on both the 38 and 42 mm in store I was happy worth my purchase. The 42 mm was bulky.

    I posted in another thread, but I don't think any women noticed it…

    How do you think the ion-x glass will fare when bracelets are worn?
