Most people (up to 90%) are right-handed, so the Apple Watch comes set up for wearing on the left wrist. You can change the watch orientation from left to right and specify which side the Digital Crown is on, enabling you to wear your Apple Watch with the Digital Crown either pointing toward your hand or toward your elbow. You can make the changes using the Settings App on the Apple Watch itself, or by using the Apple Watch app on your iPhone. (And, yes, the Apple Watch designer Jony Ive is left handed!)

Apple Watch Accelerometer?
Note that the Apple Watch accelerometer interprets your movements so the device can react appropriately to them. It tries to distinguish between you raising your wrist to wake the Apple Watch, and you moving your wrist for other purposes. Specifying which wrist the Apple Watch is being worn on helps the device to interpret the movements without mistake.
