Android Wear almost isn't worth it for small-wristed folk

Smartwatches are amazing and fantastic additions to staying connected to everything. Unless of course, you happen to be someone of the smaller boned variety. It's often difficult to find devices that don't make me look absolutely ridiculous while wearing them, no matter how awesome they are. Which is a serious shame, since it drops an entire selection of people from picking up smartwatches simply because they don't fit us properly.

Admittedly, I have tiny little wrists. The thing is though, I'm not as small as people come by a long shot. I know plenty of women far smaller than I am, and if these watches swallow my wrists, I have to guess that they would end up having to wear these watches as as necklaces. I love the style of many of these watches, they're sleek and very attractive — they just happen to be absolutely massive on we smaller boned folks.

Jen Moto 360 and Sony Smartwatch 3

It can be incredibly frustrating, as I try on smartwatch after smartwatch only to see my wrists disappear under their size. Where it gets even more troublesome, is that the watch bands are equally frustrating. I can crank some of them all the way down, and still have the watch sliding up and down my arm. Others are either too loose, or they leave an imprint on my arm when I take them off, or try to cut off circulation. Even when I think I've got the watch to a good place, I often find myself adjusting, and readjusting the bands trying to find a comfortable fit.

Part of the question then, is whether smartwatch developers are considering women as a targeted audience. Do they consider us, and the fact that we may need smaller devices in order for them to look fashionable, or even fitting? There a few answers to that question. We've started to see smaller smartwatches hit the market, and get announced. The Asus ZenWatch 2 is a perfect example, though even the Sony Smartwatch 3 isn't too bad.

Women aren't considered a target audience for things like this right now. Or at least thats what it would seem with the dearth of options available to us.

For the most part it seems as though targeting women is almost an after thought. We've seen some more stylish bands start to appear in the form of fitness bands and the Moto 360 slim band, and while those are steps in the right direction many of the bands on the market are quite masculine in their appearance and design. A few smaller, or more feminine bands would be fantastic to see — especially since not everyone prefers accessorizing the same way. We've definitely started to see progress, but a larger array of options would certainly be nice.

Women aren't considered a target audience for things like this right now. Or at least thats what it would seem with the dearth of options available to us. If it's simply that there are issues continuing to miniaturize the device itself, that's understandable to a degree. Apple and Asus have thrown the gauntlet down when it comes to making things smaller though, and with things like octagonal batteries on the way the list of acceptable excuses dwindles. If it's that they failed to consider what women want out of smartwatch aesthetically, I'm less willing to go along with things.

Zenwatches

As it stands right now the ZenWatch 2 is actually at the top of the list of devices I want to use because of it's size options. The smaller size is an 18mm band which is much daintier than most of the options available right now. Between three choices for color of the watch, and multiple bands there are 18 combinations of band plus watch for you to mix and match with. I'm actually really hopeful between the color combination, size, and band options that I'll be able to find something that both fits my wrist, and style. For non-Android Wear options the Alpina Horological smartwatch shows promise as well, and is specifically targeting women which is nice to see. The Guess Connect is on the pricier side, but another gorgeous watch that looks like it will work well for the smaller boned set.

What we have to remember is our issues with watches didn't start with smartwatches. I've always had these dainty little wrists, so I'm used to working around them. What that may mean though is that for me, a circular smartwatch may never be a feasible options. The ones I've tried on the past have been so large that they jut of the sides of my wrist. It may just mean that I'll need to stick with a different aesthetic for my smartwatch purchases. It's not the most thrilling thing to think about, since it negates many gorgeous and fantastic devices. I'm already sort of used to it though, and there are still some great options out there — even if some small children had sturdier wrists than I do.

The coolest thing right now is the promise Android Wear shows, and I want to be a part of that.

The coolest thing right now is the promise Android Wear shows, and I want to be a part of that. I can definitely see it going a few different directions. Getting access to Google Wallet, or being able to functionally use the wi-fi and NFC features would be a great way to go. We're really still watching as smartphones, and their abilities develop, so it's hard to say where exactly things are going to go. The top two on my list are definitely a smaller, sleeker design, along with Google Wallet.

For the time being, finding a smaller smartwatch is going to mean seriously narrowing the field. In this case, until Asus is ready to show off their stuff, I'm using the Sony Smartwatch 3. Manufacturers definitely need to start keeping in mind that all tech users are not bulky, and giving us the option of smaller devices and bands. With any luck that's what we'll see as we move into the next wearable chapter.

  • I've noticed that even regular watches sold in department stores are bigger now. The tiny watches seem to be out of style. Vintage men's watches are actually smaller than many current women's watches. It's just like phones. The trend is bigger not smaller at this time. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I can't wear these either, I use regular men's watches, I wear a watch everyday, a normal Seiko watch. These are too big for me, I am (dangerously) underweight due to a preexisting condition I have had since I was a child that is out of control, so right now unless my Dr can correct this issue, I cannot wear smartwatches.

  • Yes, fashion usually originates in Europe, back in the 1800's
  • Hi small wrist guy here. Maybe I'm one of the few but I still wear a 360 even if it does look "ridiculous". Because the 360 is damn cool.
  • I'm a guy with really small wrists too. My arms are skinny all the way up because I've been disabled since a young kid. Even though it does look big, I got the 360 as well because it fit far better than the others. One of the reasons it fits better on smaller wrists is because it has no lugs on either side, which makes the other watches wider than my wrist. The 360 watch band connects to the watch under the outer edge of the face, making it come closer together on the top side of the wrist. This allows the band to hug the wrist all the way around rather than jut out on both sides. It really does make the watch look like it's a proper fit for us with small wrists. The only reason I would need to upgrade from the 360 right now is if new watches with NFC and Android Pay were released. That's the one thing that would make the 360 far more usable for me.
  • Why do you put the miniaturization part off so much? Most of these watches are to big for a lot of men, and your mostly good points are getting drowned out by doing the gender bias complaining. Smart watches are just to big right now for most people. I have a nice normal watch that is 38mm, and it's the biggest I would want on my wrist, and I'm not a dainty flower. Battery life, UI and size are all problems at this stage in the game. After those things are solidified, we can start complaining about whatever else. Posted
  • I'm 6'2 and and find large watches hard to wear just because of how much they always catch on everything. I have yanked many of watches on pants, corners, car doors and other odds and ends because of large watches with less than average ergonomics

  • Well, we're pretty much all nerdy types here. We can't all be tiny! No love for sloths anymore? Wubba lubba dub dub!
  • He forgot to mention that he's middle school linebacker sized... :D
  • I wear a Moto 360, and while it was an adjustment, it doesn't feel like that big of a watch to me. Though maybe at 125lbs, my wrists aren't as thin as others.
  • I think there is a good reason the 360 looks good on smaller wrists than most other smartwatches. It's the way the band connects to the watch under the face edge. This brings the band closer together at the top and lets it hug the wrist all the way around, even on small wrists. It's things like the lugs and bands that connect outside the face edge that make the other watches too big for many people because the band is so far apart at the top that it pushes out past the wrist and looks funny.
  • This. I ended up giving my 360 to my wife and wearing the Sony full time. Mostly the Sony looked ridiculously huge on her dainty wrist, but also bc no matter what band she puts on the 360, it ends up looking nice on the wrist. She has a ton of cheap watch bands taken from the nerdy/girly watch section at department stores. She trashes the watch and the bands always look awesome on the 360. Yes it is a little more work to change the band to fit the day's style, but it can be done. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I agree with this. I am hoping that the next 360 continues this design feature as it gives the 360 unique aesthetic and has the added benefit of, as you say, hugging the wrist all around.
  • It does seem to be better than other smartwatches, but it really depends on the wrist. I've seen it look both comically oversized and just small enough. The goal, I'd say, is to make it look good on a wider range of wrists, particularly on slim ones.

  • Damn her name was ara and she's still here Posted via the Android Central App
  • Honestly, I don't think it has anything to do with targeting men over women. I believe it comes down to something much more simple: Having a decent sized screen for interacting with. I've seen a ton of various watches like others have and honestly, some smaller faced watches are not suitable for a smartwatch category. I'd imagine that screens much smaller than 38mm would be rather useless for viewing messages; let alone having enough room for important things such as a nice sized battery. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I think you nailed it with the last part. The Pebble Time packs plenty of information into a screen that's smaller than most AW devices', but if you shrink an AW down to a size that wouldn't look silly on my wrist (I'm pretty skinny), let alone the average woman's wrist, the battery capacity would suffer terribly.
  • I tend to agree with this, what I think should happen is that these watches can be slimmed down (not as thick) without functionality suffering.
  • The wrists are not at fault, the design is, if the shortest strap setting is still too loose. Posted via the Android Central App
  • This is kind of a dumb comment, but most wrist watches (including smart watches) are too small to fit on my hand. I end up having to special order the bands and switch them out myself. I'm just not into watches enough to make it worth my while. They're super cool, but not quite worth it to me. Dang straight this was "Posted via the Android Central App"
  • I'm starting to think this will cost the Android Wear market dearly if it doesn't change tack. Whatever you think of the Apple Watch, one of the things it got very right was that 38mm case size -- slim women (and some guys) no longer have to apologize for looking like they strapped Flavor Flav's clock to their wrist. Who at LG, Samsung and other outlets decided that it was okay to alienate up to half of the human population by making giant watches? ASUS is making some progress, but there needs to be a broad commitment across the Android Wear ecosystem to acknowledging that "bigger is better" isn't always a good thing in wearable tech.
  • I was going to comment here, but there's no way I'm topping this flavour flav line, love it! Posted via the Android Central App
  • 38mm vs 42mm on the bigger one, hardly a huge difference. Posted
  • I've tried both... It doesn't sound like much of a difference, but it's significant. The 38mm is noticeably small on my average male wrists, while the 42mm is just right; on my girlfriend, the 38mm is a good fit while 42mm is too big.
  • I'm sure there was a whole whole lot of testing and research that went in to this for years before the smartest even came in to our minds. I think the problem is that Android oems are still stuck with the smartphone mentality and are missing the fashion point. Yet they can throw 14 mid-high range phones a year at the wall to see what sticks and the money is just not there to do that for the watch. They just have to realise that they only need to make two, really well. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Jen Karner, you are absolutely right. Look up the definition of focus group and target audience and you will see where you fall in that process. These developers and manufactures are not purposely going out of their way to alienate people with small wrists, not just women in general. I have seen plenty of women with wrist larger than mine. They are going to produce a product that will make them the most money. So they will target the largest possible audience. I'm pretty sure margins on these products are pretty thin so they have to target the group that will give them the highest return. Also these things are not exactly flying of the shelve. Smart watches are still a solution looking for a problem. They might be very convenient but they are not a necessary. "Women aren't considered a target audience for things like this right now. Or at least that's what it would seem with the dearth of options available to us." This is a very one person centrict point of view and I get that. YOU are the one feeling left out. But to take it personal and say that it is done deliberately just comes across as being petty. "For the most part it seems as though targeting women is almost an after thought." Solely based on you feeling hurt and left out. Should say, "For the most part it seems as though targeting people with small wrists is almost an after thought." Which is clearly not an after thought it is just targeting the larger group, which is just good business.
  • I don't think she's accusing them of a conspiracy, just that it feels like a slight given how oblivious the designers seem to be to this whole "women" thing. It comes from the same school of thought that thinks female-friendly means making it pink, where it's patently clear that few if any women were involved in development.
  • She (author) is coming across as petty though. Really looking at the watch designs I would say they are way to Vanilla, neither overly feminine or masculine, they are just big. The Watch Urbane being the most masculine, and the 360 the most feminine. Posted
  • It's not petty. Way to marginalize the very real concerns about potentially half of population... and, notably, the half that actually shops more. I wear a real watch with no regrets because I don't need it to do anything other than tell me the time. A smartwatch is a curiosity, a luxury, but with the way that they are currently designed I have very little interest in making use of this new technology. I'm not a small wristed woman, but I like elegant looking watches on my wrist - my own watch is a thin bracelet with crystals, a classic design bought in the Fine Jewelry department. A smartwatch right now is an aesthetic downgrade. Additionally, my watch is a solar powered time piece and I never have to think about recharging it. But calling her "petty" is proving the point. The people designing these things take little care in taking women's issues into account. While I wouldn't expect a smartwatch as small as the one I have on my wrist to exist, there is room for improvement and commenting about it is more than fair. Posted via Android Central App
  • Well said, people may hate Apple but they worked this out age's ago, small is beautiful. Posted via Android Central App
  • This is what I was thinking while reading the article, too. Fact is, these are products, and companies are going to look for what will make them money. The subset of people interested in buying smartwatches at this point (note - this could easily change in a few years, if they catch on, and that's a big if) is small enough to begin with, and it's costly to make these products as small as they currently are. Obviously it can be done now, hence why it is - but it's going to take more refinements in the tech to get them smaller but still able to perform effectively (look at how thick early smartphones were compared to today, similar process there). Fact is, a smartwatch small enough for a thin wrist is going to be more costly and probably have worse battery life - very probably not lasting a full day - which makes for a terrible user experience. As far as styles that suit women, that's probably companies once again questioning the market for such devices. They likely doubt there are very many women who are tech enthusiasts, and as such the market for feminine smartwatches is something they aren't willing to get into until the costs on their end come down and the popularity expands beyond enthusiasts (again, if it ever does). It's really unfortunate, but such is the state of the smartwatch "industry". I have pretty average wrists for a six-foot tall guy, but my G Watch R is a bit large even for me. Were my wrists even slightly smaller, the sides of the watch would just out obnoxiously and just look ridiculous. At the same time, Google and other manufacturers need to innovate better ways to interact with the content on these such that they can be smaller, too. I don't see a display much smaller than the G Watch R's being very usable with the typical taps and swipes we're used to on smartphones (though those bezels could be reduced significantly!). The wrist-flicking of Android Wear 5.1 is a step in the right direction, but it's still not consistent and not a complete solution. It's going to take some time before watches can get small enough and target more audiences. I think Sony's approach with the SW3 is probably one of the better ones - making the "watch" section basically a little display that can be popped into the band of your choice with the bezels of your choice - but it's still going to require new tech to shrink it far enough to work on narrow wrists. I think we're getting close, though, and I'd wager we might see something that fits in the next year or two, especially as battery tech improves. Batteries are the biggest component by far, and probably the biggest hurdle before we start seeing reasonably-sized smartwatches. And this is all dependent on smartwatches being a viable market in the future; they're convenient, sure, but I really don't think they provide enough added use to warrant a price tag over $150 for anyone who's not a tech enthusiast. The only Android Wear watches that fit that price tag now are the very first handful, all of which may not even see very many more software updates. It's going to be a good long while before we get to the point where the tech is mature enough to shrink and still fit the appropriate price tag. Honestly, I think the Microsoft Band has one of the better approaches at this point - along with that one Samsung band. Those have a narrow, longer display, and with flexible screen tech finally rolling out, I think they might be a temporary solution for smaller wrists until more watch-like shapes can be built. Given they can fit content on their screen better, maybe they'll even catch on and replace the concept of a smart"watch" completely. A smart"band" might be the better way to go for wearables, despite it not looking like a traditional timepiece. If we're trying to do more than a watch, after all, we might need a format that doesn't match a watch. Hopefully a future version of Android Wear will open up to displays that aren't squares or circles and enable that as a possibility.

Only watch i like was the gear s for the not having to have your phone with you and still make and recieve calls but when sprint told me i had to pay a monthly data fee for the phone my interest suddenly went the other directing. I'm not cheap by any means but i rather waste my money on other things
  • LOL I had the Gear S since December. It is so worth it. I love going out for the day/night and just having my watch and ear piece, no phone to worry about. The measly $5 bucks a month it costs me is nothing when compared to say me spending $150 going out to eat every single time lol. I am still hoping the Urbane LTE comes out in the USA so I finally have another option..

  • I don't care how it looks or what people think. I use a cheap looking Pebble and it works for me. I don't really see the need for apps but during my work day and mass transit commute phone calls and text alerts on my wrist are a definite help to my productivity once I tweaked the deluge of alerts I was getting at first.

  • I've always thought bracelet-type wearables, sort of along the lines of a thinner, sleeker, and better looking Samsung Gear Fit, might work for woman. Bracelets (or wrist jewelry) is quite common in most situations outside of formal and business attire.
  • While I don't struggle with this issue it is a valid point and one I'd like to see more manufacturers think of. Great read. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I have a small wrist, for a guy. But, I think my Moto 360 with the steel band and my Sony SW2 with the leather band both look great on me. Perhaps one issue is that women prefer smaller watches, anyway. In that case, I suspect that none of the current breed of smart watch will satisfy! Posted via Android Central App
  • You're preaching to the choir here with me. I'm 5 ft 1 in tall and have small wrists. Most of the smart watched just are way too big to fit on my wrist. On the activity trackers, I've had two different ones that look great on my small wrist. Kudos to Misfit and Fitbit for making these things so that they fit wrists of all sizes (including us with smaller wrists). Posted via the Android Central App
  • You're cute Jen
  • Im a guy with fairly thin wrists and I have a Gear S and bought one for the misses. Hate to sound stuck up or callous, but i don't care what people think about how big the watch looks on me. It works for me to do what i need it to do for work...besides, when I'm out in public, I normally am wearing a suit or long sleeved button up... just my .02.... btw, LOVE MY GEAR S, and it's huge SAMOLED screen, lol....
  • Women are not always the only ones with small wrists. I'm a very thin guy at only 5'4" and my wrists are twigs, unfortunately. I can't wear a smartwatch for the same reason. The first manufacturer to come up with a smartwatch that doesn't look ridiculous on my wrist is going to get my money.
  • You forgot to mention the Samsung smartwatches, Samsung Gear Fit it is so great and awesome, even though it says "Fit" in the name, it has many smartphone features, I use it as an all day smartwatch mostly for notifications. If you Don't have a samsung device, you can still use most of the features of it, it is not officially supported, but just Google to see how, it is fairly simple.

  • I'm sorry but if you get any legitimate watch from a nice company such as Tissot I guarantee you it won't be oversized.

  • I am a woman whose wrists are large enough to handle most of the smartwatches out there. I choose to wear the Moto360 because it looks a little less like the classic men's watch than some of the more recent entrants to the market. I agree with you, Jen. The smartwatch makers are not looking at women as a target audience at this point. Who knows how much they could expand their markets if they did a little more market research?
  • My Uboat watch is huge and i have average wrist size its all about fashion and whats in style currently. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I am also a man that cannot wear any of the smart watches out now because of how stupidly huge they are. And I am an average sized guy. Every time a new watch is coming out I keep hoping they will make one suitable for people who aren't kin to the jolly green giant. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Been saying this exact thing for over two years now. Even worked with a smartwatch maker on this very problem. At the end of the day, these companies need to ignore the geeks/fads and listen to the watch community when it comes to design.
  • I've actually find that the pebble time, even with the 22mm watch band, works really well on my also small wrist. I found a cute purple NATO band to replace the standard one, which definitely helped. Of all the Android compatible snartwatches, I think the pebble time and soon to be released pebble time steel (if you want a more dressy option) are really good for small wrists. Everything else looks comically big on me.

  • I don't get it, I think it looks fine. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Great article. However, I have to say that I completely disagree with the premise that women are not a target audience in the smartwatch spectrum. The Moto 360 when it was first announced was displayed on Asian women with very petite frames. While I can't measure their wrists, the watches look like they fit just fine. Its one of those things where you buy a watch understanding that it's more than a ticking mechanism, it's a full fledged device with an operating system, scaled to fit your wrist without sacrificing view ability and functionality. With that in mind, companies are about as sensitive as they can be to wrist sizes (I know men who are very thin as well), and there are too many small framed individuals on this earth to marginalize them
  • Sticking a huge watch on a woman for marketing doesn't mean that the watch was designed with a woman's smaller wrists in mind. Granted, Moto does a better job than most, but that doesn't mean that it's something that most women will want to wear. Many women may, but most? That's questionable. Posted via Android Central App

  • They would have time to write something stupid like this...
  • It is not stupid. Misguided, but not stupid. She is looking at a perceived problem strictly from her point of view. There is no way a smart watch can be made to fit the dimensions of woman's watch. Even if you could then people would be complaining that it is made for people with good eye sight purposely disregarding those that do not. Posted via the Android Central App

  • I think it would be interesting to see some real (not just online surveys) statistics about smartwatches by gender. I wonder what percentage of Apple Watches are owned by women as opposed to Android Wear. My guess would be that though its barely on the market the percentage the percentage would be higher for Apple Watch. I'm not a girly girl and I'm not one who looks for bias but the size issue has been my comment since we first started seeing smartwatches.
  • Agreed. But then, the Apple Watch would survive merely because of hype. For most media outlets, it was "revolutionary" to see this tech. Posted via Android Central App
  • I also agree, Apple figured this out with their phone and they seem to have applied the same principle to their watch. Posted via Android Central App
  • women and girlie men can put it around there ankle instead...
  • My G Watch R fits perfectly... Although I wish the band was longer. Using the second to last eyelet.
  • I have to agree. I ended up going with a Zenwatch because of its lower profile and relatively normal looks. The band it came with for my wrist just didnt cut it. I had to go with a standard leather band and buckle. Its still leather, but even this one sits one hole away from the last on me. If its hot out and my wrist swells up at all I am not comfortable in it. If I move it down a hole it slides all over.
  • I'm amazed that there currently isn't a 'landscape' watch on the market. I don't have the chunkiest of wrists, but my arms are plenty long enough!!! Why not rotate the screen 90 degrees?
  • I too have a smaller wrist and this is why I haven't made the leep to smart watches. Yes, I agree that the trend for traditional watches have gone bigger, but there is still smaller styles available for those that don't want to wear a big watch. Also, if you take a look at a big watch made by a watch company you will notice that they curve so that they hug your wrist. I will wait for a watch company to partner with Android to combine their expertise in watch making. This review coming from someone who still wears a watch. Looking forward to the future of smart watches! Posted via the Android Central App
  • You're totally right about the watch band. But as far as the actual watch, well.. Someday they'll get it small enough. But everyone's clamoring for faster, better battery, and more features, so that day may take a while. I'd love to see a ladies sized Pebble. I'd get that for my wife, most likely.
