The mm of the watches and the dimensions. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 Classic comes in two configurations – 43mm and 47mm. This is because of the additional exterior component that adds to the experience of the Watch’s interaction.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 on the other hand also comes in two different sizes 40mm and 44mm. This might be a bit concerning for users who wants to opt in for the 44mm and wonder if it’s smaller – but in reality, it doesn’t have an additional exterior component and it’s a whole lot cleaner and sleeker. So, fret not – it’s quite alright.
