    Similar suggestions are under http://www.reddit.com/r/apple/comments/2fxe2t/its_hideous/ckdmlyr

    Knowing Apple's attention to detail, I expect that there is (or was) a good reason for having the button crown wheel above the button.

    The band is easily removed and you can reverse them, the software should be flippable...

    Please Stop

    Please stop creating these moronic threads—the watch and bands are reversible for lefties.

    It does work for lefties.

    You can choose orientation.

    The straps can be swapped, putting the crown on your left when it's on your right wrist.

    You should consider reading more info about unreleased products before freaking out.

    I saw the bands – and more, as a reader might have guessed from the links in my opening post – but nothing from Apple about display orientation.

    Unless I missed something, Apple's presentation of its historic moment did not think (different) to cater for:
    • most left-handed people
    • others who prefer the right wrist.
    It was not unreasonable to ask – please note, the subject line –

    for one wrist only?

    Now: after reading a later topic on the same subject:
    • a thoughtful person given readers an idea of where to find an answer to the question :)
    – still no link, but it's a start.

    I usually simply report such posts to moderators, but on this occasion I think: that rudeness warrants a frank response. The rush to be both dismissive and insulting, without providing a link to Apple information about orientation of the display, puts Drewsf1 in second place on my ignore list. Maybe he'll also think it moronic of me to dismiss posts by a dismissive tyke :D
