    Apple failed to say that the Watch WILL work for left handers

    Only difference is the crown will be below the button.

    Where’s our left-handed Apple Watch? [Update] - SlashGear

    Well done Apple. Just should have mentioned it at the Keynote.

    Why! They don't say that for any other products, and if you buy a watch that has a crown dial, just like on my Tag, it's on the right, nothing you can do about it, it's just the way it is.

    I've always worn a watch and have been wearing a $5 watch for the past year waiting to see what the so called iWatch would be like. I'd like one purely for the fitness side of things. The notifications don't really bother me.

    On the cancer risk, it seems 1 in every 3 people get some kind of cancer these days. I'm not going to avoid enoying life to reduce my risk. There is a good chance I could get some kind of cancer in the future anyway.

    And perhaps increased wireless technology is leading to it?

    If I wasn't concerned about that I'd be out to buy one quick smart ( when they're released)

    People that eat like that may not live all that longer in reality, it just seems like it.

    Not a vegan, but kind of keep an eye on processed meats like ham for possible cancer links. I would never smoke. I recognise that almost everything reportedly gives you cancer, however I'm not convinced that we've heard the end of the cellphone radiation cancer research just yet.

    The scientific evidence is ambiguous, at best. Much greater risk of skin cancers in Australia...much greater!

    Oh I know, and I'm one for taking care of my skin.

    I just see it as an added unnecessary risk until the science is sorted out.

    The Watch is great if you're right handed...

    But if you're left handed, forget it!

    You'd be forever obscurring

    the display trying to spin

    the digital crown...

    C'mon Apple

    sort it

    out!

    It's legally easier to say they haven't found evidence to show _______ (something at risk) to cause ______ (the risk of your concern) than saying there is no risk.

    Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

    Apple has confirmed the bands are swappable and the interface can be turned around in settings, so there should be little issue for left handlers.

    Where’s our left-handed Apple Watch? [Update] - SlashGear

    "Update: So, it turns out the Apple Watch really works TWO ways. Apple tells us on initial setup, you can choose to have the watch face orient itself for use on the right wrist, making it friendly to lefties. The watch bands are also swappable, so your band isn't facing the wrong way. Good news for everyone involved, but like most things in life, Lefties will still have to deal with a right-handed design -- the crown will be on the bottom of the left side of the watch when on the right wrist."

    Given the way iGOOSE typed his post, I think he was trolling.

    But that is awesome from Apple.

    If we had the choice, I wonder what is a better config, Crown above the button or vice versa?

    I'm actually really thinking of getting one now, I keep looking at the website and coming close to drooling. It looks so cool and considering I keep my iPhone in my bag most of the time I can see the application.

    I must be the only left handed person who wears a watch on my left wrist, and use a mouse with my right hand.

    No I am the same write left handed but wear my watch on my left wrist and use the mouse with my right. So it really doesn't bother me at all the way it is set up by default.

    should add I do bowl, throw and kick on my right though (well back when I did those things lol)
