We have decided not to judge Motorola as being sexist but attribute the variations to the fact that Motorola realized that women do tend to have slimmer wrists! The men’s version of the 42mm model will be accompanied by a 20mm strap, while the women’s version will have a 16mm band. The 46mm one will see a 22mm strap on it.
