    So I know I see some people who wear their watch on the inside of their wrist (or maybe that's just people around here) and was wondering if that might be better for all the health sensors being on the inside of your wrist right on the artery/vein. Or maybe I'm way off. Thoughts?

    Thoughts... In the absence of a product to talk about, people are overthinking minutiae... Apple put a lot into the design of this thing and how it's going to work and work best.

    I think it'd be about the same because I'm sure they likely designed the sensor to be able to pick up HR on either side of the wrist.

    It won't matter which side of the wrist. But one key factor to take into account is how high it is worn on the wrist. This will determine high good the quality of the rate. Further up the arm the better.

    I typically like my watch to be loose. And down by my hand. So maybe what is comfortable for most of the day will allow me to slide it up toward the elbow and it will become tight enough to get a good heart rate, without having to put on a different band. I hope.

    Ya you should not have to wear it that high. One of the recommendations from the FitBit line is to make sure it's 1-2 inches up from wrist. But you don't want to wear it to loose expecting solid results.

    I think it's just a fashion statement or a personal preference. I'm with kch50428; Apple has done their homework.

    I was at the Apple Store earlier trying watching on and asked this question. The rep said the sensors (heart rate) won't work if it's worn like that. She said they just got a communication about it.

    Interesting. And good to know.
