    Lots of guys wear them right over the wrist joint/halfway onto their hand...not loosely, necessarily (some do that too, like a bracelet) but cinched tight over the wrist joint itself. Always looked uncomfortable to me, like it'd limit mobility. So mine's on my wrist, just north of the joint. How you wear yours?

    And if you're one of those elderly gents who wear yours halfway up your forearm, please post pics.

    I don't like them low. That to me is for show, mine have always been for utility and worn above the wrist.

    My bands are fitted to rest firmly just behind the wrist bone, like you.

    I used to wear one just behind the wrist bone;
    being a lefty, I wore it on my right wrist— which often made adjusting it rather a pain

    (no, these are NOT my hands in this GIF— but issue demonstrated applies.) :D

    Being a lefty, I take mine off to adjust it, not talented enough to adjust one on my wrist.

    I wear mine on the left arm just north of the joint so I can move my hand freely. It's snug but not too snug. I loathe a watch the skids around on me.

    I like mine about the wrist joint like many of you but I don't wear it tight. I don't like the constricted feeling that comes with it. I'm sorta bracelety, sorta not. I have lost a lot of weight in the last two years and my two metal bracelets are a bit awkward in being a bit too large as is and too constricting minus one link. Kind of like being between jeans sizes.....I have a custom leather band I made that is about perfect.

    Notice how the metal bracelet can easily slide farther up onto my hand.
