    If you are right hand dominant do you wear it on your left? Or if you are left hand dominant do you wear it on your right hand?

    Or on the same hand as your dominance.

    I am just curious if people follow the old rule of wearing the watch on your opposite dominate hand with smart watches.

    I doubt there's a difference between where people wear their smart watch and where they wear their regular watch. I'm right handed and whether my watch is smart or dumb I will wear it on my left wrist.

    Yeah, I wear my smart watch the same place I used to wear my regular watch - on my left wrist. I'm left-handed.

    I wear it around my neck until Apple puts out a proper :apple:Necklace.

    Right handed, wear on my right wrist. I use a Pebble so there's no dial on the side, I find it easy enough using my non-dominant hand to use the menu on that.

    Wear it on my left wrist, and I'm right hand dominant (though I usually play the submissive role ... wait, what were we talking about ... ?)

    I also wear mine inverted, i.e., crown facing my elbow :)

    Fore near fetlock for me. On the internet, no one knows you're an ungulate.

    Left. It just feels right even if the other hand is dominant.

    I wear my smart watch everywhere I go, except while I'm in bed or in the shower.

    I don't own a smartwatch but I wear my normal watch on my wrist. Like most people.

    I don't have a smart watch, but I wear my dumb watch to work, family get togethers, church, and that's about it. I take it off when I'm at home, or if running errands since there are other timepieces to consult if I need to know the current time. Yeah, that's what those dumb watches and clocks are for!

    Well frack. I'm ambidextrous but I'm a leftie at heart so I wear everything on my left. Watch dumb or smart, wedding rings, and even a small bracelet by my watch (no worries for my watch is usually wearing a bumper when wearing a bracelet too) then on my right, I also wear my watch occasionally when I can't wear it on my left because of chemo or hospital visits, since usually I get catheterized on my left mostly.
    You have no idea the amount of fights my family has gotten in to with me trying to make me wear my watch on the proper wrist. If I could get a dollar for each time, I'd have a third watch by now.

    Just kind of an FYI, that is the more common way to do it, i.e., the wrist opposite from your dominant hand.
