The Apple Watch was designed to look similar to traditional watches, meaning the design was tailored for right-handed wearers. However, since many users don’t like the Digital Crown hitting their wrist - Apple implemented the Orientation Settings feature on their watch.
Hence, the main reason you’re having trouble with your Apple Watch might be due to the wrong setting.
This setting can be adjusted both from the Watch and from the Watch app on your iPhone.
Before changing the Watch Orientation setting, put the Apple Watch on the wrist you usually wear it on, regardless of whether the screen is upside down.
Note: If you wear the watch on your right hand, but prefer having the digital crown away from your wrist, you can adjust this setting too.
