Watch4 buttons layout

Coming from the original Samsung Watch the new button layout is completely jarring. The home and the back keys are switched and they do not do what I want them to. I am very used to the bottom button to access apps/home and the top button as the back button. Also I hate the swipe from bottom for apps!

 
I wish Samsung would give us the option to switch back to the classic layout!

Took a couple of days to get used to it but I don't mind it now.


My advice comes from being a UK Samsung phone user.

Current Devices:
  • Samsung S21 Ultra 5G 256Gb > Model: SM-G998B/DS.
  • Samsung Galaxy Watch4 Classic > Model: SM-R890NZSAEUA.
  • Samsung Galaxy Buds+ > Model: SM-R175.

100% agree, and it's less intuitive. We use the back button more than home button, and for me atleast it's easier to press the top button with the index finger.
This is probably an easy software change but unfortunately I doubt we'll ever see it.

I'm in the same boat. I think they've done it this way because this is the standard Wear OS layout. It's annoying to long time users.
