    Wearing a Fitbit on my right hand with my wristwatch on the left

    I wear my traditional watches on my left wrist

    What do you think of wearing a smart tracker on my right wrist?


    1. Ridiculous
    2. I can get away with it
    3. Doesn't look bad

    It's the thinnest tracker bracelet-style I can find.

    If anyone had any other SmartBand options for me, please say so.

    Perfectly acceptable.

    Plenty of people already do this, and plenty of threads on this already.

    Hereís a recent started one...

    Something I see a lot of people (especially older folks like my self doing), don’t want to give up their watches, but want to have their steps and activities tracked. I wear my new(ish) Fitbit on my left wrist, and my 35 year old sub on my right wrist. Sometimes I’ll even put a black rubber strap on the sub to make them match.

    There's no reason why not.
    As someone who works on watches, I know a couple of people who wil 'wrist test' serviced watches on one wrist while wearing their own on the other.

    My apologies,

    I linked to the post instead of the thread.

    Fitness band plus analog watch

    (Iím using Tapatalk, so not sure if this works in a browser).

    There are a few other threads as well in the public forum on the same topic, so clearly this habit is starting to take off.

    I certainly donít see an issue with it and think itís a very practical way to get the best of both worlds.

    Makes sense to me!! If I had a fitness band tracker I would surely do that.

    I do this all the time too. Found a nice brown leather fitbit holder on Etsy.
    I put a regular or smart watch on the left wrist.

    Gets weird when you have an Apple watch and a regular watch I think. Perhaps because they are both big.

    Ended up with a Fitbit inspire HR. Black Friday sale. On the dominant wrist, even with it set in the app, it seems to overinflate statistics, but that's a reasonable trade off for having a SmartBand and a wristwatch.

    It's got the silent alarm, call alerts (sometimes I don't feel/hear my iPhone vibrate), reminders and views text messages. Those are my primary needs. The heart rate monitor and steps are useful even if a bit inaccurate. What's more useful is the walking distance stats which I think are linked to the GPS. One bonus is the screen is so bright, it doubles as a weak touch for when I'm in bed looking for something.

    I turn off the automatic display, instead setting it to display only when I push the button. I have my wristwatch if I want to glance at the time.
