Wear OS: You will soon be able to wear your smartwatch on right hand

Wear OS has recently been gaining more attention from Google as the company is rapidly improving OS. A new feature has been confirmed to come in the next update. The OS will finally let users flip the UI in case they want to wear their smartwatch on the right hand.

A feature request on Google’s issue tracker has been marked as resolved with the clarification that it will be made available on future new devices. It doesn’t make it clear whether current Wear OS 3.0-running devices will get it in the future, though, or if you’ll need to buy a new one for that.

As of now, Wear OS watches can be worn on the right hand but the buttons would stay on the right side making it extremely uncomfortable to operate as flipping the watch around won’t change the orientation of the UI. So if you are left-handed you can’t properly use your watch on your right hand even if you flip the band.
