Great deal. But 40mm is too small. Apple should discontinue it. The minimum screen size for us to be able to read text and the UI better would be 44mm. Even then, they should bump up the screen size.
Sure they should just make one size for men.

As someone will small wrist, I completely disagree. The 40mm is perfect. I see far too many people rocking the larger size and 40mm would look better.

I think this size is correct for my wrist (that was actually the 38mm)

As a man, I don't find 38mm too small. Doesn't bother me at all. Worn it for years.


many women want a larger display too
Do they, though? ('https://www.imore.com/apple-gets-it-right-why-android-wear-sucks-for-women')

Well the good news, you don’t work for ‘TimCookandCo.? seems like they have a strong grasp on the wearable market, especially with the Apple Watch. Everybody has different size wrists, The 44 mm might be too large on somebody with smaller wrists, rather that be male or female, there’s a reason Apple offers both 40/44 mm.
