Smartwatch Tips and Tricks: Altering Wrist Placement and Orientation

It’s often recommended to wear a watch on your non-dominant wrist, which can be a challenge for left-handed individuals who may require custom-made watches. However, unlike traditional watches, smartwatches offer the convenience of software that allows you to wear them “upside-down” and change the orientation and key side whenever you want.

Typically, you can choose this setting during the initial setup of your smartwatch. If you selected the wrong option or want to switch things up, modifying the wrist and orientation settings is usually straightforward if you know where to go. In the following sections, we’ll provide step-by-step instructions on how to adjust the wrist and orientation settings for popular smartwatch brands like the Galaxy Watch, Apple Watch, Pixel Watch, and others.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5

USING THE GALAXY WEARABLE APP

After setting up your Galaxy Watch 5 or Galaxy Watch 5 Pro and connecting it to the app, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Galaxy Wearable app, and go to Watch settings.
  2. From there, select General, and then Orientation.
  3. You can then modify the Wrist to Left or Right, and Key position to the opposite side, if desired.

USING YOUR GALAXY WATCH 5

If you prefer to use your watch to make these changes, follow these steps:

  1. Swipe to your app drawer and choose the Settings option (the gray cog icon).
  2. Tap on General, then select Orientation.
  3. Here, you can also modify your wrist side and/or key position as needed.

Google Pixel Watch

IN THE PIXEL WATCH APP

  1. Ensure your Pixel Watch is connected to the mobile “Google Pixel Watch” app.
  2. Scroll down to Watch preferences and choose Watch orientation.
  3. Select Left or Right for the wrist position and crown location.

ON THE PIXEL WATCH

Alternatively, you can modify the settings directly from your Pixel Watch by following these steps:

  1. Swipe down from the top of the screen and select Settings.

  3. Select Left or Right for the wrist position and crown location as desired.

Fossil smart watches with Wear OS

  1. Open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap on My Watch.
  3. Select General, and then choose Watch Orientation.
  4. Choose Left or Right for wrist orientation and digital crown position.
