Both big and small watch comes in aluminum, steel, Nike+, and Hermès. The series 4 small watch (40mm) is slightly smaller than the series 3 big watch (42mm). The big watch (44mm) size is unique which we never have seen before. Not only in size it also has some upgraded features.

Battery life and Processor:
If you are a long time traveler, choose 44mm because the larger size of the battery it has a long battery life. Then it is easy to go without charging for two days. Both are using S4 processor chip which makes the watch to process faster compared to the previous version.
Note: Both are having the Non-removable Li-Ion battery
Pixel Size and Display:
The display size of 40mm is 394×324 pixels and 44mm is 448×368 pixels with Retina-quality. The quality of the screen is good to see in the normal distance. So both are similar in quality of pixel.
Both the Apple Watch comes with pre-installed watchOS 5. So if you think of software both seems good to use.
Both 44mm and 40mm comes with GPS + Cellular accessibility with LTE connectivity. So you no need to take Apple phone always with you. It will automatically connect the call feature to your apple watch. If you want only GPS option that is also available in both sizes. Cellular accessibility is little high in the prize.
The 40mm band works with previous version 38mm case and also 44mm works with series 3 40 mm case. You can also use third party band which you like to go with.
Are you Women or Men? (Wrist Size)
If you have the small wrist then 44 mm is too large for you. If you have a bigger wrist then 44 mm is perfectly fit for you. Most women have the small wrist so I suggest going with 40mm and 44mm is fit for men.
The final metrics is the prize. If you go with the GPS-only version that prize is at $399 / £399 / AU$599 and the cellular option prize is at $499 / £499 / AU$749.
Choosing the size of Apple to watch series 4 depends on your personality, profession, gender and look. Follow the tip whichever given under the each metric and compare with you. And finally, fix your budget to buy the Apple watch series 4. If you are a girl and your wrist size is not small then go with 44mm itself.
