With Apple’s launch of the Apple Watch yesterday, I’m sure we can all agree that we were left with more questions than we were left with answers. We received no run down of the device’s specifications, nor did we get details on most of its technology, and even though we did get a walkthrough of its software, a lot of the basics weren’t mentioned. One of these was the options for left-handed users, and specially with so much emphasis on that digital crown, though we do get some information about it today.
Journalists contacted Apple about this particular question, and most of them are reporting Apple’s stance on the matter. According to Apple, the display can be flipped, and given the ease with which you can swap the straps, you’ll have to swap these as well in order to go on full left-handed mode. This obviously leaves the usability of the digital crown and the contacts button in question, but it seems that Apple tested that as well before the launch.
Whatever the case may be, it’s great to see that there is a solution. All we have to do is get one to our lefty expert Taylor Martin for his thoughts on it once Apple launches the Apple Watch in early 2015.
