Don’t know how to get a good angle of it on my arm but 38mm perfect for me. Couldn’t have gone bigger, but I’ve got a small wrist! Super comfy!! Was a bit hard to put on the first few times but getting the hang of it! @alfredlulz @carloss_rom @justinlombardi_ @sahil16 @peguntah @brookelouise02 #applewatch #applefan #fitness #fitfashion #applewatchsport
