If you're looking for the best Android smartwatch and you want to be sure you choose the right size for your needs, you'll be glad to learn there are plenty of options within the Galaxy Watch 4 lineup. Considering that this also happens to be the first Wear OS 3 watch to hit the market, there's a lot to look forward to.

When choosing between the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, the key differences are in the physical design. To recap, the Galaxy Watch 4 comes in 40 and 44mm sizes, both of which come in aluminum cases with a digital bezel. If you're a minimalist when it comes to your accessories, this might just be the watch for you.

Most users will love the 44mm Galaxy Watch.

If the color of your watch is important to you, that may also impact your decision. The 40mm comes in black, silver, and pink gold. The 44mm comes in black, silver, and green. I'm partial to the deep green shade myself and who doesn't love a big display? Most users will love the 44mm Galaxy Watch.

When you're looking for a watch that allows you to enjoy the latest and greatest tech but you also want some traditional design elements, you'll want to consider the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic models. The size options for these variants are 42 and 46mm. You'll also appreciate the premium look of the stainless steel case.

However, keep in mind that these models are heavier than their aluminum counterparts. You get a fun and seamless physical bezel that's easy to rotate as you navigate through the user interface. What more could you ask for? Both models come in black and silver, so you'll only have to determine whether the smaller or larger variant is right for your wrist.
