    Ordering a small if this fits. Also, are the bands not changeable if it doesn't fit?

    thanks

    No, you have to exchange it for another device. The band itself if part of the unit and not detachable. In fact, the sides contains the battery and the clasp has the heart rate sensor.

    Because of the ridged sides of the band, it's not measured in circumference, but height.

    There is no way your wrist is 6.5cm in circumference. It is the circumference of my forefinger.

    Surely you mean 6.5 inches? 6.5 cm is 2.55 inches and you'd need a doctor, not a health band.

    Assuming 6.5 inches you may still be a medium. The small is really quite small. I went to a MS store to try them on because I was concerned with my skinny wrists (which are actually 7.5" around). I was surprised to find I was a medium and even then not using the tightest setting. You'll likely be a medium, but you should try one on if at all possible.

    Check out reddit too , as this was discussed there. /r/MicrosoftBand/

    There is a PDF document on the Microsoft website you can print out to determine the size to buy.

    Make sure you select printer to 100% and then MEASURE the ruler on the paper to check it really printed to size. If it didn't, tweak and reprint until it measures correctly.

    Then you hold your hand over the paper and it shows the size to buy.

    I think that's a poor method. Probably due to parallax errors because your wrist is so far above the page. I'd go by the measurements found here.

    In my case the measurements on the page says "medium", but when I tried to use the PDF guide, it was well into the "large" area. Medium is my right size.

    Is the screen size the same, regardless of the Band size? Example, my wife is wearing a medium and she has it as tight as it will go, but it is still a bit too big. If she gets a size small Band, is the screen going to be just as big on her wrist?

    The only difference between the sizes is the "height" between the back of the display and the heart rate sensor. The display itself is the same for all sizes. For smaller wrists, I fully expect to see a gap on the sides of the wrist between the skin and the inside of the band. As long as the two metal sensors are in firm contact, it's the right size.

    For future references, my wife and I both sized our wrists to the guide. Bought the appropriate sizes per the guide, then had to return them get one size smaller.

    My wrist measures just over 6.5" and I have a Large Band. It gives me a good working range of where to wear the Band. Also, I don't like having tightly fitted watch so the Band fits loosely where it can move up and down couple of inches on my wrist.

    I tried Medium at the store and that would work but felt bit tight so opted for Large.
