Both the position of your watch and the tightening of your wristband have an impact on features and measurements efficiency.
To make the most of your experience and monitor successfully your health, here are a few tips on how to wear your watch.
Wearing ScanWatch properly
The ideal position of ScanWatch is on your left forearm, about a centimeter above your wrist bone, screen on top.
Your ScanWatch must be worn tightly enough. It shouldn't be able to move around your wrist.
Tightening the wristband
For optimal wearing, Withings has provided a reference table indicating the notch to use according to the wrist size.
- Make sure to measure your wrist size at the correct distance: 1 cm behind your wrist bone.

Here is the recommended notch to choose for the tightening of the wristband according to your wrist size*:
|13.5 cm - 14 cm||1st notch|
|14 cm - 14.5 cm||2nd notch|
|14.5 cm - 15 cm||3rd to 4th notch|
