Title says all.
Wear it on my left wrist with the crown facing my arm.
So for MOST people who are right handed (me) its "supposed" to be on your left right so 1 you can use your right hand to turn the crown / reply to messages what ever you need to do. And 2 its the " fashionable " thing. BUT me being the person i am i feel too much is going on with my left hand/ wrist my wedding ring and my watch. Way back when i use to wear my fitbit on my right and just kind of got use to having a watch on my right wrist. So now with my AWS2 i switch it up. I like it on my right wrist AND my left wrist. Most of the time i switch weekly. Crown always towards my arm tho not my wrist ( i'm not an animal ) Plus i don't get that awkward tan thing people get who always wear it on the same wrist.
Left wrist, crown on left.
Putting the crown on the left wasn't my first choice, but I tried it on a whim and didn't want to go back.
Like most right-handed watch wearers, I've worn my watches on my left. Now, with the AW's additional interactions, and my left fingers being totally clumsy (use Scribble with my left hand? HA!), it makes more sense to wear it on my left.
Right wrist since I'm left-handed.
Ended up setting the crown to the left side though I had considered trying the right side but didn't feel right.
So why the crown always towards your arm?
Left wrist, crown on the right for me
Im pretty "flexy" so the top / back of my hands will touch it and either 1 set off the watch or 2 get that odd dimple when something presses on your skin for a long time.
I am left handed but I have it on my left wrist. Also have the crown facing my wrist because I just didn't care and that was how it came out of the box lol.
Right wrist. Left feels so awkward to me. Thats how I have worn all my watches for whatever reason.
In the past I used to switch arms from time to time, but I think I'll keep Watch on my left wrist.
I'm afraid scribble would be terrible with my left finger trying to write stuff
Left wirst, crown on right. So i can easily control with my right hand
For right-handed left wrist wears, why the crown toward your arm instead of the typical crown toward the wrist? Because then the mic and speaker would be toward the wrist, and thus easier to talk to your AW? Because you rather use your right thumb to operate crown and use thumb to push crown in? When using your right thumb to operate the crown, or your right index finger, do you ever feel your hand is covering the display a bit?
I have mine on left wrist with crown toward wrist because it's comfortable enough and never really considered the alternatives. The crown doesn't dig in when I move my hand since I have the AW up my arm past the wrist bone (the round bump on the wrist).
Well, just tried on left wrist with crown toward arm. Not bad, but it feels especially awkward to operate/push the side button because it ends up on top when the crown is toward the arm. Overall, operating the crown and side button on the left is a bit uncomfortable as I feel my right needs to turn over too much to push the buttons. Also, I think it looks better with the crown on top, but that's minor. Having the mic and speaker toward the wrist is a plus though! Listening and talking to AW would be better.
Being left handed and wearing watch on left makes it hard to use the "Scribble" feature.
Actually for me I have no issue using it.
So you can write right handed as a left handed person?
No but as far as the scribble feature goes I don't have an issue. It's weird lol. Just used to having watches on my left hand. Tried it on my right and felt weird to me.
Side benefit, but sure.
Primary reason, yes. It's more like to operating the phone -- pushing the crown with my thumb feels like pushing the phone's Home button, and they both get the same basic result.
Specifically, when I have the crown on the left, I don't operate it with my right index finger. Why would I do that? I operate it only with my thumb.
Lefty here, wear it on my right wrist, crown on the left side. I can't tell you how many people have told me face-to-face that I've put my Apple Watch on "upside down."
Omg funny because after your post I tried to move to right arm for scribble. Felt weird is right.
