Apple Watch question
Posted by: macphanatic
Date: June 28, 2020 07:21PM
I’m having issues with my Series 1 watch. It goes to the Apple logo a few times per day and appears to reboot. Restored it and the issue persists. So, I’m thinking it’s time to replace it. I have the 42mm model. Does the 44mm Series 5 seem much bigger physically? I realize that it is bigger, but it’s hard to get a sense without putting it on.

The quick answer is "No". Very slight difference, the screen will seem better.

What he said.

IF you notice the size 2mm difference on your wrist, no one else will and you'll quickly forget about it.

Again, IF you notice it at all without a side-by-side comparison.

What you will notice is the enhanced legibility of everything you see on the display.

Go back to your S1 an you'll wonder how you ever lived as a savage.

Even the new 40mm, smaller than the old 42mm by the same 2mm, gives a bigger display than that old 42mm.

I went from 42mm S1s and S2 to a 44mm S5 an am very glad I did.

But I'd like to get a 40mm in the same Gold as my S2 but Apple only does Rose Gold these days and I'm not a fan.

Nope. My daughter and I moved from series 1 (42mm) to 5 and 4 (44mm) respectively. Neither of us have big wrists.

Thanks all. Now to find a deal on the 5 series in 44mm. I know I missed a good deal about a week ago. But my watch was working fine at that point.

Keep looking,

The typical good deal is $100 off MSRP.

It seems as though every other week somebody is offering it for $100 off.

Those deals will be more and more and more frequent as we approach New Watch season.

Not everybody that sells it for that price offers the Nike+ version.

It's the same price as the regulars watches with some extra Watch faces.
