    Can't decided between the 38mm or the 42mm Apple Watch? Looking to see if any ladies got it and if you think it's too big or bulky?

    I recommend going with the 42 mm unless you have an extremely small frame and extra small wrists. The 42 will fit fine even if you have small wrists - just use the small/medium band. This isn't a watch that is meant to be dainty. It's a touchscreen smartwatch that displays text and you need the screen real estate. I tried on my brother's 42 mm Apple Watch a couple days ago and it fit great. I have other women's watches that are about the same size and I love the fit of them as well.

    I originally thought the 42 was the better choice, so I ordered it. But after trying both on twice, with different bands went with the 38.

    I am extremely happy that I downsized. My wrists are extra small and the 42 was just a tad too big. I had to pull the sports band really tight to get a good fit. Even then the band didn't line up as comfortably as the 38 does.

    It also helped that the 42 was back ordered til June and I was able to get the 38 in record time.

    I ended up ordering the 42mm Space Grey Sport. Hope it doesn't end up being too big for me.
