    I went with the 38mm as well after seeing my son's and I have no problem with it whatsoever!

    This goes along with my above comment. For those on the fence about the two. Go to the store a check it out before you order. If not, measure your wrist and ask some people that have the 38mm what size wrist they have and compare. 38 looks perfectly normal on this wrist and looked good on mine also!

    I have tiny wrists but got the 42. I've always liked big, sporty watches.

    Glad the sport watch came with the smaller band as well! I use it on the smallest hole and it stays put.
    And this now worries me to see a huge watch on this wrist. Lol. Hopefully my wrist is slightly bigger than this one.

    No need to worry... If it is too big, you can exchange it. Plus Apple stores will have watches in stock at the end of the month, and I am guessing the 38mm models will be the majority of the stock.

    Did you measure your wrist? Mine is about 185 mm. Not big or small. In fact, I'm in the range where I can use either the big or small sport bands that came with my Watch so medium describes me perfectly.

    I measured by printing out a paper ruler. You can download one here: printaruler.com

    Camera angles can make the watch look bigger than it really is in photos. Here are 2 pics I took of my watch from slightly different angles:

    To me, the Watch looks much larger in the second photo but the first photo is much more realistic in terms of how it really looks. Certainly not too big.

    I got a 42mm as I went to the Apple Store fitting appointment wearing a huge Longines steel watch. Even 42mm felt tiny. But now after having used the watch for a day, it feels perfect.

    I feel even the 42 is a bit small. So I can't imagine the 38mm, and that's considering I don't have very big wrists.

    Personally the 38mm was too small for me so I had to go with the 42mm. In the watch world small is definitely whats in now. The bulky sized watch companies (panerai or breitling) are moving towards making smaller sized watches. But the truth is 42mm is still considered pretty small so its most probably the right choice from a fashion aspect too.

    Went with the 42... I am a big guy and the 38 seemed tiny, perfect for my wife and kids. Plus my 50 year old eyes need all the help that it can get

    I went with the 42mm, I really like the way it looks on my arm, the size is perfect. I think the 38mm would have been to small for me.

    The 38 mm. It's perfect for my wrist. The 42 mm is too big and bulky.

    I agree with all who say that 38 is better.

    I don't have mine yet, but when I went to try them on, the 42 looked way too big on my wrist. They are pretty small, so the 38 looked perfect.

    I picked up the 42 mm this week when visiting London. Its just about right but personally I could go with 52mm for more battery and perheps sensors for blood oxygen level and UV level.

    Does the 42mm really have more battery life? I actually picked up a 38 yesterday and just exchanged it today for the 42.

    I went back to the 38! The 42 looked too big for me. I get that others like that but it's just not my style.
