How To Measure Wrist Size For Watch
How to measure wrist size for watch is pretty easy. Once you get your wrist measurements, you will know what size of the watch that will fit you perfectly. You will never have to end up with a watch too tight or too loose for you.
Getting Your Wrist Measurement
Here are some simple steps you can do on how to measure your wrist size for watch.
1. Get your wrist circumference. Take your wrist circumference when you want to know the correct size of the watch. In doing this, choose the spot on your wrist where you usually wear your watch.
2. Get the width of your wrist for an open-loop bracelet watch. You will find a gap in open-loop bracelets watches, and you can easily slide it over your wrist. Choose the widest spot on your wrist. This is where you would usually feel the bumpy bones on either side of your arm. When you measure an open-loop bracelet watch, you will need to take the width from one side of your wrist to another.
3. Wrap a string around your wrist to get your measurement. Get a 1 foot or 30 cm long string. Make sure that there is enough extra to wrap around your wrist. Set the string on a flat surface and make it straight. Then set your wrist on top of it while making sure your palm is facing upward. Wrap the ends over your wrist, making sure it overlaps in the middle. If you have a measuring tape around, you can use it to find your wrist size as well.
4. Mark the point on the string where it overlaps on your wrist. Make sure the string fits comfortably on your wrist before you mark it. Proceed in drawing a mark or a dot on the overlap of the string. Mark both ends of the string for you to take the measurement accurately. Look at the number that lines up with the zero if you are using a flexible measuring tape.
5. Hold the string against a ruler. Extend the string to make it straight again and place it next to your ruler. Using the ruler's end, line up one of the marks you made on the string and get the distance to your second mark. Markdown your measurement, so you don't forget it. You may use a tape measure if you don't have a ruler.
6. Add 1⁄2 in or 1.3 cm to your length measurement. It sometimes makes you feel uncomfortable when you wear watches that are too tight. Place an additional 1⁄2 in (1.3 cm) to the measurement you have so the watch will fit loosely.
The steps on how to measure wrist for watch are very easy to follow. Even if you got your exact wrist measurement, I suggest that you get a size that is a little bit bigger to make sure that it will fit you comfortably.
