    When wearing the band with the loop on the bottom, the magnet enclosure detaches and re-attaches very little but I can feel it and is annoying. It happens since it lays right on the edge of my arm where my bone is so when I rotate my wrist the magnet is pried a little.

    When wearing the loop on top, the magnet is on the other side of my arm where it doesn't happen anymore. Just wanted to know what looks better to help decide how to wear it.

    My loop is on the same side as my thumb.

    I just flipped it to see which I like better. Harder to adjust when it is on the top, but I do think it looks a bit better when I'm lifting my arm to see the face.

    The loop on the top just looks strange to me.

    So far it seems to be preventing the slight rotation I was experiencing, where my watch would travel a bit towards the bony part, instead of staying centered.

    What IS that bony part called?

    I put a better picture with the loop on top.

    ----------

    I think the Ulna bone.

    This seems vaguely dirty, but I moved it back to the bottom. Top was uncomfortable.

    And now I am uncomfortable!

    Being left handed I wear my watch on the right wrist. I always flip the bands around the opposite way from how they come. On a buckle type band the end gets caught on things when I don't flip it.

    I set the orientation of my Apple watch to the right wrist and was in such a hurry to put the watch on, neglected to flip the band. With the loop on top of my wrist the watch didn't sit right and was sort of turned away from my face when I raised my hand to see it.

    I flipped the band so the loop was on the bottom and it fits just right now. Plus I think it is easier to put on and tighten with the loop on the bottom.

    Bottom seems to make the most sense to me. But I'll probably try both.

    Are you asking about the bump on the side of the wrist? If so, it's the styloid process.

    Ah ha! Yes, that.

    I wear my watch right over it, and having the double thickness of the band over it was just uncomfortable. Switching it back made all right with the world.

    I did exactly the same thing - left handed also.

    Bottom makes watch look thinner.. Having it on top adds bulk.
