    Which wrist do I wear my watch on?

    Damn it, the decision is killing me! Looks like I'll be ordering a second one!

    This isn't an Ambidexterity problem, since anybody can use the watch with either hand. Its more of a personal taste issue, and go with whichever you prefer :)

    I've always been told to wear a watch on my left wrist so that's what I've always done.

    Or you could send me your watch and then you won't have to make such a hard decision :D

    I initially put it on my left wrist thinking that overall I'd prefer my right hand to tap with. But it felt so awkward that I swapped it to my usual right wrist and it feels much better going left handed.

    It's a bloody pain not having one favoured side!

    OMG, I never thought about that problem, looks like Apple dropped the ball on that one,
    instead of an extra band they should have added and extra watch !

    The only solution would be to print an exact copy of the watch in paper and strap it to the other arm, to lessen the shock of raising the wrong hand, pulling back your sleeve and seeing....... no Apple Watch,
    and if you are really brave write "Look at other arm" next to it !

    I do hope there will be an Ambidextrous support group soon !

    Left so you can control the crown with your right hand, I'm guessing your right handed?

    I personally like the crown on the top side, on my left, but if you can wear or crown down, on your right side, will the interface flip? I thought I saw it somewhere, but I could be mistaken.

    but back then we didn't have to touch our watches screens, I am right handed in everything I do. My watches have always been on my left arm. but somehow with the Apple watch when it comes to interacting with it, it feels more natural on my right arm.(with reversed screen in settings). I would recommend everyone to at least try it.

    Didn't get your watch yesterday then? Never mind. Or are you just a tit all the time?
