Default Left handed... watch on right

Since I'm left handed, I usually wear my watch on my right wrist.
I'd like the camera pointing out towards my hand so I need to flip the display.
I can't find any setting to do this. The "auto-rotate display" doesn't really work.
Any suggestions?

(note: I'm running a heavily modified stock rom)
There's an xposed framework module called gravitybox with an overide to allow all auto rotation orientations. I use this with the auto-rotation enabled in the accessibility settings to swap the watch between my right and left throughout the day. if you want to force it to a specific orientation, I'm sure this can be done with xposed framework somehow.

I've not tried it on the truesmart, but I've used gmd smart rotate (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...md.smartrotate / http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2045240) to override orientation on touchwiz for years, and there are other similar applications available. these may prove to be simpler to use if you're not familiar with xposed framework

Thanks for this information. Nice app. The GMD Smartrotate does allow me to flip the screen to wear my watch on the right wrist. The only problem is that the camera image is upside down. It does flip the controls and menus for the camera app but the camera image is not flipped and is upside down. All the other apps seem to be flipped just fine. (Oh well, at least when I show pictures to other people, it will be right side up for them.)

It's hard to take right side up pictures anyways, it always seems to rotate them sideways. I just rotate them after I've taken the pictures. It's not like I'm using this thing as a primary camera

Edit: I didn't think about videos though..
