    I'm on the fence with the size, not sure if it looks too big and if I should go with the 38mm.

    The 42 mm looks good. I like it. I don't have a watch, but I'd go with the 42 mm if I got one. I'd want that extra screen real estate.

    Thanks. I don't normally wear a watch which is why I guess it looked big. I'll get used to it. It is very comfy though

    I think this looks well proportioned . I did not try the watches perhaps I should have ? I got the smaller size. It's not opened I might find time to go and look at the bigger size too.

    I think I read somewhere about wrist tattoos interfering with some of the heartbeat functionality. But I seem to remember it was if they were on the BOTTOM of the wrist.

    Yeah, her tattoos won't be a problem. It's the really dark and solid ones that can interfere.

    I can't imagine tattoos on the under side of the wrist would cause problems. The sensors are on the back of the watch, in contact with the top of your wrist.

    My tattoo hasn't caused me any problems at all.

    I have pretty dark tattoos on my arm especially under my watch. I have no issues at all.

    @kerriberri you made the right choice. 42mm looks nice. The 38mm would have been too small.

    I went back to the store and tried on both sizes and I kept the 38mm . But ended up buying a new watchband
