    I chose the 42mm because I wanted the most screen. . . . To anyone who is not sure, let me say this: the 42mm is not that big. Unless you have a tiny wrist, you'll more than likely be happier with the "bigger" watch.

    I chose the 42mm version for the reason stated above.

    42mm. The 38mm really looks tiny to me, and I like big watches.

    38mm I am used to wearing a smaller watch, and the 38 looked good on my wrist.

    Went with the 38mm. I have a fairly small wrist, and while the 42mm really isn't much bigger, the 38 just doesn't scream "smart watch". Not regretting it at all.

    I got the 38, and at first I thought it looked small, but after using it, I love it. It feels more like a regular watch to me, which I love.

    I ordered the 42 mm because I wanted the larger screen. After trying them on at the Apple Store, I'm glad I did. It's just the right size for me. I don't have big wrists (around 180 mm where I wear my watch) but the 38 mm just seemed too small. With the small sport band, it just barely fit.

    I pre-ordered the 42 MM without actually seeing it. But today it is confirmed that I made the right choice. 42 MM is the perfect size on my wrist. 38 will be too small and look strange.

    I like big watches.

    I am going for the 42mm SS-ML Apple watch and that is smaller than my current daily driver watch in all dimensions.

    I'm ordering the 42mm for larger screen. I have enough problems seeing my 4" iP 5 screen. #OldAgeProbs

    I went with the 38 because my wrist is 152mm and I also didn't want something that stood out as a smart watch. It seemed small when I opened the box, but after wearing it for a while, it's perfect for me. I'm glad I chose the 38.

    I chose the 38 mm as it fits snugly on my wrist. The 42 mm felt bulky when I tried it on.

    42mm, if I were to get it. Just because I prefer a wider band...

    42mm. Perfect size. It actually feels small compared to my Garmin Forerunner 220 running watch.

    I went with the 38mm as my wrist measure 150mm, general I really like big watch but as the Apple Watch was measured by height I didn't want it to be to big, as I thought it may impact on how the straps then fitted on the wrist. Really glad I got the 33, it fits really well.

    I wore a Pebble till yesterday. It's even bigger. The 42mm face is as small as I'd want to go -- although I'll admit battery life is a factor. If somehow the 38mm face version got better battery life, that'd be what I'd get. But it doesn't -- larger faces have larger batteries to more than offset the extra pixels' drain.

    Also my wrist is 185mm.

    I went 38mm and am so happy with it. I tried on the 42 and I thought it was too big. I'm not dainty, but the 38 is just better for me.

    I chose the 38mm Sport, my Seiko round watch is 35mm and kinda suites my wrist, also later on, maybe by Christmas I can afford to get 42mm SS with braceletand pass 38mm one to my wife, maybe I'm hoping to much, but without hope what have you got. ; )
