    Just imported a Microsoft Band to Australia, only to find the online sizing guide was really poor, and while I can JUST get the small on, it's ridiculously uncomfortable.

    Got my digital calipers out, and metric measurements of the sizing guide are
    Small: 32.9mm
    Medium: 42.8mm
    Large: 49.4mm

    My wrist height is about a 43.9mm, and width is 58.2. Should I be looking at a Medium? Or Large? Zero ability to test fit due to location.

    Off to ebay this small goes, not worth sending back to the US :(

    I don't have calipers, so I just eyeballed a ruler against my arm and it looked to be about 40 mm. I'm wearing a medium on the tightest setting. I've read that the middle setting of a medium is about the same as the tightest setting of a large. A medium would probably be the best fit, but a large could possibly work as well.

    I was / am between a medium and large. I actually returned the medium, thinking a large would fit better and be more comfortable. Even on the tightest setting, the large constantly alerted me to "adjust the fit" or even "Hey, where did you go?"

    It's unfortunate, but the difference between medium and large is much greater than the difference between small and medium.

    This is just my experience, but I hope it helps.

    I'd go medium. You're only 1 mm away from the medium, but 5.5 mm off from the large.

    According to two different size guides I used, my 44mm wrist should go with a large. MS recommends going with a larger option if your wrist falls between two sizes. I find this a bit odd considering I am neither tall (170 cm / 67 in) or muscular/fat-armed. But the suggestions for you to go to a medium sound about correct.

    The problem I have with that sizing guide is that it's unclear if the sizes indicate minimum, mid-point, or maximum size. The height does vary a bit depending on where the clasp is.

    I used the sizing guide from the microsoft store online. You print it out a PDF full sized. Worked really well for me.

    I'd go medium. I have what is considered a small wrist, but measured several times before ordering a medium (not yet received). I read several articles that they are generally sized small - strange for a company based in USA ;-)

    I've used this quide too, and taken a ruler to confirm the size of the print was accurate. And again I find it very hard to believe that I would fit best in a large Band. I can't imagine how then this thing would fit on someone like an American Football player.

    It worked poorly for me. Part of it was trying to measure something that is a few inches above the paper.

    I have a major problem with the Microsoft Band!!! None of them fit me. The Large is too small. Is there a chance that Microsoft will be making an extra large soon. I already have a Fitbit Charge in Extra Large and it fits nicely. Would like to upgrade to the Microsoft band but not until they have a device for large wristed people. :(
