Apple Watch vs Android Wear: Why most smartwatches still suck for women

Serenity Caldwell, iMore:

When I first heard about Android Wear last year, I thought the folks behind the OS were doing a lot of things right. And I still do: the approach to notifications is smart, custom watch faces are neat, and Google Now — while creepy — works exceptionally well at providing smart information for your day.

There’s only one problem: There’s not a single Android Wear device designed to fit a small-wristed person.

Read the post, check out the pictures. If there are new Apple Watch models, I hope they continue to each ship in both 38mm and 42mm sizes. Great design sense on Apple’s part.

    It comes as no surprise to me to hear that Android watches are designed in a cultural bubble.

    It’s not just the smaller wrist…I have normal man-sized ones, and I much prefer my 38mm Apple Watch. That said, I never did grasp the fashion trend of great honking watches on your wrist that seems de rigeur for men these days.

    So, it’s a surprise that the Android version sucks?
