How does watch 4 not have a left handed mode ?

Especially since you have two simple buttons on one side ?

 

Just let me flip watch.   And have an option to rotate screen and flip buttons then it's done.   Easy!   

 

Apple has this feature.  I just bought the watch 4. And honestly shocked it doesn't.  Especially since a lot of the sensors require you to hold your hands to the watch in a way that's impossible in the right wrist !!

Send a diagnostic and report it to samsungs tech team, won't hurt and they could put it into an update in the future I doubt your the only person who has noticed this..worth a try.

Apparently - this issue has been going around for over 3 years - - so I doubt my diagnostic send will do anything.

The problem is - the buttons are on the wrong side.. so A.. its' a bit uncomfortable - but more importantly B --- all the metrics to measure your body are geared to you touching those two buttons and raising your arms and not touching anything else --- the way  they want you to do it -- is simply not possible on the right arm.        So bypassing the fact that it's just a tad annoying...  if you want to use any of the health analytics you need to put it on your left arm.    Makes sense?
