    Do you have an iPhone or an Android phone? Based on what iPhone people have reported, that seems to be the key factor which could introduce variance to the experience.

    IMO if you're expecting functionality on par with an Apple Watch, you'll be disappointed. But already owning some other Tags, I think you'll appreciate some minor drawbacks (some apps not offering full functionality with iOS for example) in lieu of the physical benefits (it's the only smart watch I am proud to have on my wrist - it actually looks like a serious watch). I'd definitely say yes.

    If you have an iPhone, buy an apple watch or a fenix 5. If you use android, have a look at the tag

    For me it‘s a superb watch during work and in the evening/night. I don‘t prefer it under gleaming sunlight and while doing sports.

    I have it hooked up to an iPhone and perfectly happy with that. With the new app update even better the before. To me, it still stays the one smartwatch that actually looks like a watch!

    This! For sunny days at the beach and for workouts, the fenix 5/Chronos is much better as the screen can be difficult to read on the THC - and touch screen is not ideal for workouts. But for a cool looking gadget watch it is perfect! I use it with Android, though.

    Nice to see a thread like this pop up when I was just about to ask the same question. My tax return for the year is soon back and I'm quite seriously looking into buying either the Connected 45 or 41mm. The smaller looks more "natural" on my wrist, but it feels like you kind of want the larger screen if you're going for a smartwatch at all. Do you guys have any preference when it comes to this?

    The Connected 45 is big for a small guy like myself...

    Currently using iPhone/Apple eco-system, but considering switching back to Android when my current phone gives up. Being a tech guy and trying to be a flagship user cost a fortune if you're an Apple user...

    I have small wrists also and the 45 was just too big. The 41 is a perfect size for me.

    A watch can never get too large. Go large! :D

    I have small wrists too, but a large watch just look manly in my opinion.

    Good to hear someone having a positive experience with it on iPhone, there are so many posts and threads talking about issues.

    Thanks for the feedback! The masculine look would be awesome, but I'm afraid I'll just look too much like those musicians that wear something absolutely ghastly just to show off their personal wealth. Connected 45mm is one big watch, but it's just on the edge of looking ridiculous on me personally.

    (With that being said, I'll make sure to try on both a few more times and post some photos so that you pro's can help me out here:))

    I would go 41 if you are having doubts about the 45 If you think it looks too big then it’s too big only you will know as your the one that has to wear it. I myself have the 45 but I’ve got big wrists and the 41 was too small looked like a woman’s on me lol. I have an iPhone and since the update wear os everything is running smoothly and well happy with the functions of the watch, I don’t wear it everyday as wear an apple for work as I’m a floor layer and don’t want £2000 watch caked in cement and glues

    There ain‘t no watch suitable for every day! Same as cars: As much as I love my 911, there is no way I would take it to the hardware store.....

    Your Monnin has a 42mm case and your Formula 1 has a 44mm case. From a size perspective, I'd base my decision on which one of those I thought looked best on my wrist.

    I got a Fenix 5 for christmas and I've not worn my Tag watch since, the fenix 5 in my mind has everything you could want in a watch, its a smashing device ..
