If you’re a lefty you might have been worried about the Apple Watch announcement today, which highlighted the device with a crown that rests on the right-hand side of the watch. Obviously that’s not the best place for lefties, who might want to wear the watch on their right wrist and use the crown with their left hand.

Apple apparently already thought of that problem and has a solution.

According to, which spoke with Apple, the Cupertino-based company will allow users to choose which side of the watch the crown is on. That means both right and left handed users will have the option to choose the watch that fits them. If you’re unfamiliar with the conundrum here, right-handed users typically wear a watch on the left wrist where they can easily reach a crown on the right-side of the watch. With the opposite option, left-handed users can wear the watch on their right wrist and tweak the crown with their dominant hand.

So, worry not lefties, Apple has you covered.
