    I'm reading a lot on here people who had the medium band one opting for the small band 2

    Now the band 2 is measured on wrist circumference can we all post so people who haven't got theirs yet (UK) get an idea as we have no stores to go in and try on

    If you post your wrist circumference, band size and how closed the clasp it

    This will give others a good idea.

    My wrist is 18cm and have the medium band one which is closed about the middle of the clasp

    If you can't make it to a store to try on a Band, you can also print out a sizing chart from Microsoft. Here it is shared from my OneDrive account: Band 2 Sizing Chart. You can print out the sheet, cut a strip from the side, wrap it around your wrist, and find the correct size.

    Keep in mind this is for the US sizes, but if I remember correctly the Small, Medium, and Large sizes are universal in all countries. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    I had a large Band 1 with the clasp in the middle because the medium was too tight for my comfort.

    For Band 2, I went with medium and the clasp is right about in the middle for me so the new design is quite a bit larger IMO. But in a good way.

    And what is your wrist circumference?

    Can anyone say if this sizing chart is accurate? I'm in Australia ordering a Band from the US so I can't try one out in store. I had a large V1 Band and it was just a little too big on its tightest setting.

    This time I was planning to order a medium and judging by that linked sizing chart that will be ok. My wrist measures 166mm if I pull the tape measure tight in the narrowest part, 170mm if I let it a bit a looser so it feels firm but comfortable. BUT that puts me down the bottom end of the medium sizing so if that chart is off then I'd be better with a small. (Small 143 - 168 & Medium 162 - 188)

    I got mine today and ended up getting a small. The one on display at the store fit looser than the new one I bought. My new 'small' is tighter fitting than the small at the store. I'm guessing the loosen up a bit as you wear it.

    I bought a medium today and on the tightest setting I can still fit a finger in between my wrist and the band. I think I am going back to trade it in for a small. My wrist is exactly 6 inches, and the biggest setting in the small is 6.6 so I think I will be alright. I got mine at Best Buy.

    My wrist is about 6.5". I bought a medium and it was to big at the smallest setting so I took it back and got the small. Below is a picture of my Band 2 small.

    Thanks! What adjustment is the small Band at to fit your wrist?

    2 to 3 clicks. My wrist must in between the small and medium. When I tried the medium all they way to the last click is still moved a tab bit on my wrist. The small Band 2 adjusted all the way open fits a tab bit loose so 2 or 3 clicks fits nice.

    Band 1 I was a large. Got Band 2 in large using size chart from MSFT site and it was too big. Exchanged for a medium now fits well with 4 clicks. GF also was a medium with Band 1 and went with small for Band 2 with better fit.

    The sizing chart is not accurate. It recommended L, but I am clearly a M.

    I just got mine, a medium. I'm not sure what to make of the sizing.

    I'm a couple of clicks from the tightest setting and it definitely feels tight. However, there are gaps on both sides of my wrist so there's still horizontal movement. So, actually, it feels a lot like I'm wearing a first gen Band.

    I'll have to visit a MS store to compare.

    Well, after wearing a small all weekend (picked up one at the local store), my Medium that I had pre-ordered arrived.

    The medium is 2 clicks from as tight as it can go and still feels a little loose, while the small is open as far as it can go. Guess I'm in between sizes...

    Well I live in South Africa and I also couldn't choose a size based on trying one on. So I went for large based on the sizing chart and if its too big I'm gonna buy a lot of doritos

    I got to try a small. The rubber straps are snug to my skin, but I had to wear it on the loosest setting. There would be no room to accommodate swelling during a workout so it's definitely too small for me. My conclusion with the Band 2 is that it's the same size a the first gen, it's just that there's open space where the batteries had once been.

    So I've been wearing my medium for several hours and I haven't found it to be too loose. It's more comfortable than the first gen but not a dramatic improvement. I do wish those side straps actually helped hold the band in place.

    I brought my medium band back to Best Buy, and they had one small in stock but couldn't find it. GRRRRRR!!! Oh well, good things come to those who wait!

    Just got my Band 2 in Medium, and I'm 1 or 2 clicks next to the tightest setting. Tightest setting the band 2 doesn't move on my wrist so I thing Medium is ok (at least like this you can't see the metal underneath the clasp which is a good thing in my opinion)
    Question: Do the Small and Medium Band 2 have the same width? Because with the Medium Band 2 I have some space between the Band and the arm on both sides..

    I'm wondering this too. Got a medium for my wife, but she has lots of room on either side of her wrist. I was wondering if the actual screen area was more curved or smaller in some way on the small to make it fit better on smaller wrists. Don't have a Microsoft store anywhere close to us so we can't just try them there.

    I am also wondering this. I just got the large band and I have to have it on the tightest setting. If I slide the band closer to my hand, it actually feels a bit to loose. I'm not sure if there is enough overlap in the sizing on the medium and large, so I'm hesitant to return it. Does anyone know, if I have to have the large on the tightest setting, if the Medium would be able to expand to that size?

    Same with me. Sizing chart recommended a medium, but I'm one click away from tightest fitting. And... I think the band is stretching a bit, so one day I might be at tightest click. If I could do it again, I'd get a small.

    I'd say get the medium. Over time, I believe my band is stretching a bit, or I'm somehow wearing it differently as I get used to it, regardless, now I'm near my last click.

    Thanks! I just ordered the Medium one, I'll compare before returning the large. I'm sure I'll end up keeping the medium.

    Thanks for the info guys! Used the cut out and my size is exactly in the middle of S ans M (if fit). I was about to get M size but reading here it might be too loose so I'll get S. ☺

    I had been waiting for Band 2 to be available in Australia and checked the sizing chart which placed me bang on between Medium and Large. So according to MS, if you are between sizes, go for the next size up. As launch date got closer I as checking and re-checking the sizing chart to confirm my size. I wanted to be sure because I would be ordering online without trying on first. Anyway, finally decided to buy from JB HiFi after redeeming points for a voucher and went in to get my Large Band 2. They had no Large bands in stock but offered me a Medium to try. It was a warm day which was good because it meant I could make sure it wasn't too tight and left room to adjust after exercise. Turns out to be a really good fit. I have enough clicks to loosen the band when I'm exercising without being at the maximum, and tighten again when I'm cool. I think if I went large, it may have been too loose on a cold day on it's tightest click. I have a round wrist, rather than flat and wide, so the band 2 is a good fit all around with hardly any gaps on the side.
