    Are you going to keep using your right hand and wear the watch upside down? Or are you going to try and adapt too wearing it on your left hand?

    I'm right handed and I like to wear my watches on my right wrist. I think I will try to wear the watch on my right hand and see how it feels. I may switch it to my left hand and some point, but that would feel very strange for me.

    There IS a setting on the watch to "flip" the watch. It's intended for lefties, but would also work for other right had watch people.

    Traditionally people wear watches on their opposite hand. Usually is an easy way to see if someone is a lefty or righty.

    I'm left handed and wear my watch on my left wrist.

    Apple staff told me you can select which wrist you will wear and which side for Digital Crown, so u can wear both left or right wrist.

    I prefer to wear watches on my right wrist. I want to make sure I am sending the right message to the boys. Wearing it on the left wrist just sends them the wrong message.

    I'll try flipping the watch over to the left hand for a few days and see how it goes. Like a lot of left-handed people I'm adaptable

    The crown looks better at the top but maybe wearing it on the right wrist towards the bottom is further confirmation that I should be wearing it on my right wrist.

    I'm a lefty and normally wear a watch on the right with the face on the inner wrist.

    However, I stopped wearing a watch a number of years ago and something has changed which makes me reconsider how I would wear an Apple Watch.

    For the most part nowadays I use a MacBook, so my wrists are resting on the computer, so I guess I'll be flipping the watch around to the "normal" position.

    Also, I got used to controlling a mouse, and using a trackpad with my right hand, so my right wrist is usually in contact with the MBP while the left is more apt to be moving around or "floating" above the computer.

    However, when I went for a watch fitting session I did try it out on the right side and had no problem reaching over the watch face when the fob was on top or controlling the crown when it was "upside down".

    I'm in the same boat. I'm right handed but can only wear things on my right hand. I currently have a fuelband and I've tried wearing it on my left hand but it feels so awkward.... Anyways at my try on appointment I told the specialist that, and he didn't show me that you could flip it upside down. It seems a little un-apple to let a user do that because it changes the experience... But that's good to hear! I don't want the crown on the right side of the watch... It's too difficult to use

    My Apple Guy was good. The try-on watches were running demos so they couldn't flip the screen. But there was a paired watch and iPad setup at the end of the table which he used to show me the setting. So the test wasn't totally 100% with it flipped and on my wrist, but it was enough to reassure myself that it would be easily doable for me no matter the orientation.

    FYI...the MBP also narrowed my band choices. I got a SG Sport and a leather loop.

    I was told to wear watches on your left wrist, been doing so all my life and will continue to do so.
