    Too big?

    Hi all. Bought the 40 and 44mm watches. Which looks better on my 6.4” wrists?

    Thanks. 40mm is too small? Rules must be different for Apple Watches.

    40 looks fine. The pictures are WAY different, though. Shoot the 40 from a distance like you did with the 44.

    I think you're overlooking that the lugs are almost non-existent, so that 40 case height is also almost the L2L length. Rectangular watches tend to be that way.

    I think the 44 is pushing it. Wearable? Yeah, but pushing it IMO. But I also prefer keeping the watch head a bit more within the wrist than some others do.

    How you balance the need for a larger screen versus looks and fit is highly personal.

    If it’s comfortable enough then I would go 44 for the larger display.

    I had a 42mm on my 7” wrist and it was perfect. I don’t understand why they went to 40 and 44. With that said I think the 40mm looks better on your wrist!

    Also depends how "techy" you want to look. I prefer the smaller ones just I don't want to be wearing a large black display on my wrist
