    I'll be getting my watch on Monday (hopefully). I plan on changing the orientation so it is easier to reach the buttons. Just seems to make sense...

    I'm left handed & have always worn a watch on the right. However I tried apple watch on both wrists & both ways round & found that wearing on the left hand wrist with buttons on the right works best for me as I seem to use my right hand to input for phone & watch mostly unless I'm texting one handed. I guess it all depends on how left handed you really are (I can kinda go both ways)

    Plus it looks weird upside down on your right wrist in my opinion.

    I'm actually even-handed with the exception of writing, but I've worn a watch on my left wrist since elementary school and wearing one on my right wrist would just feel weird to me.

    I've always worn a watch on my right wrist but can use either hand. I changed the orientation and don't have a problem with at all.

    Right wrist with the buttons on the left. Makes it very convenient for the digital crown push and scrolling.

    Thanks and feels natural upside down?
    Would you rather have there be a left handed option maybe with crown on top?

    my sister is the same way... I'm left handed... But am wearing mine on my left hand... Haven't worn a watch at all for about 10 years so it's taking some getting used to and will feel weird for a while no matter which side I wear it on...

    (Laughing)...I'm sure it will......Still, the benefits of having it, specifically regarding notifications w/o having to take out your iPhone, is worth it, in my opinion. In fact, I'm increasingly using it for phone calls when I'm at home. Anyway, I hope you enjoy your Watch as much as I'm enjoying mine, my friend...

    Doesn't bother me at all. Being lefty I guess I'm just used to doing things differently. I'm always amused when people try to use my computer and they realize my mouse is on the "wrong" side.

    Another lefty here. My Watch is on my right hand with the digital crown on the lower left side. Just seems "right" to me.

    Lefty here.

    I guess I'm stubborn. Watch on right wrist but with crown and button on right, same as I did with my old analogue Swatch models.

    The difference between the Watch and the "old analogue Swatch models" is that NOW you have the option of fixing that.

    I'm right handed & wear my Watch on my right wrist. I have always been more comfortable with wearing a watch on my right wrist. No problem managing the controls. Left handed-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1433706875.486340.jpgLeft handed-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1433706890.985948.jpg

    I am left handed. Interestingly when I did my try on appointment I was told you wear like any other watch. I had already read through various forums that the watch did adjust for lefties. I do wear on right wrist. I do have digital crown facing hand and on bottom. I've had no problems using or adjusting to it. Love it. If worn like regular watch on right wrist with crown facing arm it would be difficult to use. Just my opinion.
