    I just looked at my photostream for the first in a while and I have 30+ screenshots all taken accidentally. I know the watch should be worn a little higher but am I the only one who thinks we need an On/Off switch for this?

    I'm confused. How can you take a screenshot accidentally? You need to press both buttons down at the same time. How does that happen on accident?

    I think if you don't hit the crown squarely it's possible that your finger might catch both buttons at the same time when you only meant to press one. I've also activated Siri accidently when bending my wrist back.

    Simply by bending my wrist, for example when I tuck in my shirt, when I carry grocery bags, lifting weights and so on.. The top on my hand presses both buttons and I screenshots are taken..I also accidentally activated Siri a couple of times..

    No, I have never accidentally pressed a button on my watch.

    It is too close to your hand.

    Looks like it is past you wrist bone and more on you hand than wrist. If you bent you hand back, I can see it hitting both buttons.

    I think it should be just left of the wrist bone but everyone wears their watch differently.

    Just my opinion. But either way it is probably why your hitting the buttons when you bend your wrist.

    For me, yeah, that's way too close to your hand. I've never, ever seen someone wear any kind of watch right up against their hand like that until the Apple Watch. Seems to me like it would be so uncomfortable.

    I'm wondering if people who haven't been traditional daily watch-wearers until the Apple watch are wearing it that way because they don't know any different? Because a traditional watch is typically worn to the left of that bumpy little wrist bone...at least in my personal experience of seeing those around me wear watches all my life. I could be wrong, but that's always been my "norm".

    Maybe it's the case with flexible bands.. but I've always worn link bracelets in the past which naturally slide down because of its weight + gravity. So to me this is where the watch belongs..And no it's not uncomfortable at all.. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1432484373.941631.jpg

    I've done it a couple of times, but usually only when wiping the screen with a cloth.

    I wish they made it impossible to take them when the screen is locked, looking in my Photo Stream, 90% are of the passcode screen.

    I did activate Siri accidentally, maybe twice...
    30+ accidental screenshots seems a bit high though, lol.

    ----------

    Definitely looks weird.
    I'd say... adjust to normal wearing, or get used to multiple accidental screenshots. Sounds like your only two options.
