I know you’ve been considering getting an Apple Watch, and one of the things you’ve probably been wondering about is how to choose the best size for you. As someone who has worn an Apple Watch for a few years now, I thought I’d share some of my thoughts on the matter.
First of all, it’s important to understand that the size of an Apple Watch refers to the case, not the band. The case is the part of the watch that contains the electronics and display, while the band is the part that goes around your wrist. Apple currently offers two sizes of watch case: 40mm and 44mm. The 40mm case is the smaller of the two, while the 44mm case is the larger.
When it comes to choosing the best size of Apple Watch for you, there are a few factors to consider. One of the main things to think about is the size of your wrist. If you have a smaller wrist, you may find the 40mm case to be a better fit, as it will be more proportionate to your wrist size. On the other hand, if you have a larger wrist, the 44mm case may be more comfortable and look more balanced on your wrist.
Another factor to consider is the type of band you plan to use. Some bands, such as the Milanese Loop or the Link Bracelet, are adjustable and can accommodate a range of wrist sizes. If you plan to use one of these bands, you may have more flexibility when it comes to choosing the size of your watch case. However, if you plan to use a band that is not adjustable, such as the Sport Band or the Leather Loop, it’s important to make sure you choose a case size that will fit your wrist comfortably.
It’s also worth noting that the size of the watch case can affect the features and functions that are available to you. For example, the 40mm case has a smaller display and fewer complications (the small widgets that display information on the watch face) than the 44mm case. If you want a watch with a larger display and more complications, you may want to consider the 44mm case.
Finally, it’s a good idea to try on both sizes of Apple Watch to see which one feels more comfortable and looks better on your wrist. You can do this in an Apple Store or by borrowing a friend’s watch. Keep in mind that the size of the watch case can affect the overall look and feel of the watch, so it’s important to choose the size that you think will work best for you.
