    When you push the wheel up the screen scrolls down. When you scroll the wheel down the screen goes up.

    I understand when using the iPad/iPhone that it makes sense since your finger is on the screen, but I've never understood it on the trackpad or Apple Watch.

    I've changed the trackpad on my iMac so when I push two fingers down the screen goes down, do you think we'll be able to do the same with the Watch?

    Have you actually tried it out in store? It actually feels really natural. I'm not sure if you can change that, maybe check the leaked Companion app pictures?

    I think most people would agree it is very natural. However I believe I saw in a previous post about the watch app settings that you could change this in settings.

    Feels natural, didn't even think about this in store when I tried it.

    Just look at your display while you scroll with the trackpad set to natural scrolling. Makes as much sense as on the iPhone or iPad. You're "grabbing" the content and throwing it in a direction. Same goes for the digital crown.

    Its the same on a magic mouse, which is opposite to the Windows orientation.... As a Mac user, it feels natural

    I just changed it to get used to this new way of scrolling (for me) :cool:

    The thing that sucks is I have a PC at work and it's different :p

    Now why would you want to move the screen and not what's on it?
