I had a series 1 Watch in 38mm and went yesterday and got the series 3 in 42mm and I’m unsure if it’s too big on me. They didn’t have a 42mm on display at AT&T so I didn’t realize how much bigger it was. What do you all think? Should I go down to the 38mm and pay a $45 restocking fee or does the 42mm look ok? Thanks in advance for any help!

I don’t think it looks too bad. What are your thoughts though, after having it a day or so?

I've rarely seen a 38mm in the wild. Even most of the women I see with one wear the 42.

I have a Series 0 42mm watch. I am going to upgrade to a Series 4 40mm watch because the case is slightly smaller than my Series 0, but the display is actually larger. You may want to consider that. The 40mm will be smaller on your wrist, but you’ll have the larger display.

I have a 38 mm, but I’m going to get a 44 mm when I upgrade. The font size on the 38 is smaller than my aging eyes prefer when they are strained from gazing into light-emitting rectangles all day and the battery life isn’t as good. The battery lasts a full day and I typically charge it at night, but it does die halfway through day two when I’m away from my charger and don’t charge it overnight.
