    I always see everyone wearing the Band with the face inside the wrist. I have the Band and my Band 2 is on the way, but I've always worn the Band with the face on the outside of the wrist (like a regular watch).

    Question is, does it really matter which way you wear it and is it supposed to be worn with the face facing in?

    The only watch(s) I ever had a problem with wearing one way or the other were swimming watches, which didn't detect your swim stroke correctly if you wore it face in. They track your arm movement and detect freestyle, backstroke, butterfly, and breaststroke swimming from that it measures stroke rate, stroke length, speed, efficiency, total distance, laps, splits. If the Band did swimming Id consider getting one but I realize it's a niche use case and don't expect it will happen. Barring a sensor in the Band that doesn't perform as expected when oriented one way vs the other which I have not heard about it should not matter which way you wear it.

    Several reviewers say either way works but face up, the uv sensor will be hidden.

    What if you're wearing long sleeves?

    Then you will not worry about sunscreen since you are already covered up. Try wearing long sleeves full time in Florida, says the guy in shorts, t-shirt and flip flops......

    I always intended to wear mine on the outside, but after around 30 minutes I gave up. It was horrible having to pinch my elbow in and wrist out to see the screen properly. I turned it inside and found it so much more comfortable.

    The only problem I get now is when I put my regular watch back on I keep looking at the wrong side of it!

    From what I was told by MFST, for the UV sensor to properly work, the clasp needs to face up.
