Which is better Galaxy watch 42mm or 46mm?

Galaxy Watch 42mm is the best choice based on compatibility. The 42mm Galaxy Watch does everything the 46mm does, except it does it for a shorter time between charges. It’ll fit men’s and women’s wrists, and comes in both black and rose gold for more style options. It’s the best all-around choice.
