If you want the largest, clearest screen available on an Apple Watch, then the 44mm screen is right for you. You will also benefit from a larger battery and therefore longer battery life with the 44mm. According to Apple, the 41mm Apple Watch Series 7 has a wrist size of between 130mm and 200mm. That's about 5 to 8 inches, if it's oxidized in the metric system.
Apple recommends the 40 mm version for wrists from 130 to 200 millimeters. Again, you can measure your own wrist if you're not sure, but it's generally more comfortable for smaller wrists. If you have a small wrist or just want the cheapest Apple Watch, then the 40mm will fit you perfectly. The two women I know who bought the Apple Watch Sport got the 42mm model.
It's actually smaller in real life than it looks in the photos. When I waited in line for the first test session, I would have sworn that the watch displayed in the window was 38 mm, but the Apple employee said it was 42 mm. If your wrists are small, you probably want the 38 mm ones, but for medium to large I would say 42 mm. The 42 mm, of course, has a larger screen, but also a better battery life.
But the people here are right. You have to go in and try one on. I just wanted to step in so that you wouldn't assume that women should automatically get the 38mm. Both the 38mm and 42mm Series 3 watches are almost the same in terms of their features.
The main difference is in their size and available viewing area. Those who prefer larger screens should definitely go for the 42mm Apple Watch with a 740mm square viewing area. The 38mm watch is a price-conscious choice: it can have a decent display and save a few dollars. Apple seems to focus more on health and fitness features with this version of Apple Watch.
Even so, none of the Apple watches would be considered too wide or tall in the world of traditional watches. This luxurious five-link watch band is available in six metals and metal patterns of different colors, including stainless steel, rose gold, two-tone, three-tone and black. For men, the average watch is 37 to 39 mm; a sports watch measures 40 to 42 mm and large watches measure 45 mm or more. While Apple's band options are always updated, it's worth noting that some bands are size-specific, which you can see by scrolling through several available Apple Watch Series 6 models.
The 40mm Apple Watch has a slightly larger screen size than the 38mm Apple Watch Series 3, but that's mainly because the screen is much larger. When in doubt, go to local stores and see if you can try on an Apple Watch of each size to see which one you prefer. In a survey on their site, most men preferred a watch between 40 and 44 mm in size, pointing to the larger size of the Apple Watch as a good bet. He is currently the leader of iMore in everything related to Macs and macOS, although he also loves covering iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch.
One thing that has remained constant over the years is that Apple launches every Apple Watch in 2 sizes. In Ask Men, the Watch Snob says 39mm is the right size, which points to the smaller 38mm Apple Watch, so there's really no perfect answer. For that, the Apple Loop Sport band may be the choice, thanks to its dense nylon fabric and durable layer. Because there are two sizes, and because some of Apple's bands are exclusive to one size or another, some have tried to simplify the size discussion to her and him.
