On Which Hand Should You Wear Smartwatch?

Looking at Mountain Wearing Smartwatch

Ideally, you should wear a smartwatch on your non-dominant hand, the reason is very simple, let’s say you’re a right-handed person, so you will use your right more often, so it makes more sense to wear a smartwatch on your left hand. This way, smartwatches won’t measure false readings, you will feel more comfortable and the watch won’t get DAMAGED if you’re doing some work with right-hand.

Now, is it also recommended that everyone should wear a smartwatch on the left hand because the human body pumps blood from the left side, this way, wearing a smartwatch on the left hand will provide more accurate data compared to wearing it on the right hand.

In the end, wear a smartwatch where you feel comfortable. Also, if you’re more curious then let’s find out why you should wear a smartwatch on a non-dominant hand.

Ease of Use and Safety

Using Smartwatch for outdoor run

I’m assuming you’re right-handed, so it is obvious that you will use your right hand more often, so if you wear a smartwatch on your left hand then it will be easy for you to use the smartwatch and navigate through the smartwatch UI because you’re right-handed.

On the other hand, if you’re left-handed then wear a smartwatch on your right hand because the same reason, it will be easy for you to navigate the smartwatch.

Also, as I have said, when you wear a smartwatch on a non-dominant hand then the smartwatch won’t get damaged very easily, even if you’re a rough user.

Health Tracking

You heard that right, wearing a smartwatch on the left hand can provide more accurate data because your body pumps blood from the left side of your body hence, the smartwatch provides accurate heart rate and SpO2 data compared to the right hand.

False Readings

Smartwatches are running in the background and measure heart rate, SpO2, calories burned, and even ECG. So if you’re wearing a smartwatch on the dominant hand then the watch feels that you’re doing more activity and as a result, it might measure False Readings.

So Wear a smartwatch on a non-dominant hand, this way, the watch won’t notice any False activity as result, the watch will provide more accurate health data.

How Long Should You Wear a Smartwatch?

How SpO2 Sensor works

There is no scientific data available that says, wearing a smartwatch 24/7 is harmful. So the right answer is, you can wear a smartwatch for as long as you want but keep in mind, don’t wear a smartwatch too tight because it can harm your skin.

The reason is very simple if you wear the watch too tight then your skin is getting extra pressure and if you wear the watch for 8 to 10 hours then the watch will leave a mark. So wear a smartwatch neither too loose nor too tight.

Also, every human has different types of skin, so your skin is very sensitive then try out different straps and see which strap is suiting well for your skin.

Now, most of the default straps are well made but still, if your hand feels itching then don’t use the default strap, buy a new one.
