    I choose 42mm simply so I could buy the blue leather loop. I was immediately drawn to that band.

    I went with the 38 because it looked like the right size for my wrist.

    42mm here for the same reasons as many have already posted. I wanted the watch to cover as much wrist space as possible so it was the larger size for me.

    I purchased the 38mm Sport for my wife and the 42mm SS for myself.

    42 mm looks cool, it covers almost entire wrist and hence gives a stunning. 38 mm sports looks fine, but it looks somewhat small on a men's hand.

    I ordered the 42mm Space Gray Sport with black band. Got it Friday. Having spent nearly four days with it now, I was surprised how much smaller it is on my average dude wrist, than I thought. I'm very glad I didn't get the 38mm - way too small for most guys. I think it's a pretty clear men/women thing. My girlfriend has tiny wrists, and the 38 would look better than the 42. A final reason for the size is the rumored better battery life, which struggles for me to get through a day. Maybe because it's new.

    I went for the 38mm. It was the only size I tried on. I'm super concerned with it looking too bulky and the 38mm didn't give me that impression.

    Definitely because it's new. The use is much more heavy than the average use.

    That was my concern with the 42mm but it looks fine.

    Any concerns about the band getting dingy looking?

    It's holding up pretty well so far. Even if it discolours or stains it's only 39 to buy a replacement band in another colour.

    I might have to give the white band some serious consideration. That band with the butterfly looks sweet.

    Ordered the 42mm "blind" (basically assumed I would want the bigger one) and it is actually smaller in person than I thought it would be. Made the right choice (for me) for sure

    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.

    I can definitely say you're right, after nearly three weeks with it. Now, I'm anywhere from 20-40% at the end of a normal day, when I'm not sitting there fiddling with it - it's set up the way I want, and now I'm able to let it do its job with minimal interference.

    LOL! I have a Suunto watch that is even bigger so this is actually quite manageable and comfortable!

    If your a dude, stay away from the 38. It will look like a woman's watch on you. Just saying. I have skinny wrists it it still looked bad on me. Glad I ordered a 42 and I'm loving it.

    I also have skinny wrists....but with the sport band I can't find a perfect fit. Using it on the fourth from tightest it hurts my wrist, and on the fifth from the tightest, it slides around and disconnects. How's thrift for you, and what setting do you use?
