    Last watch I wore was a Fitbit. When they endorsed Michelle Obama I quit wearing it. Also let them know of my decision.

    Galaxy Watch most of the time. A Marathon GSAR or an Orange Monster other times.

    Ever since I figured out that I was no longer immortal, I started keeping my good old flip phone on me at all times. My lifestyle has me out in the fields, woods or in one of the boats. The phone always has accurate time and is the link should I get in over my head. Its one of the clunky ones thats nearly indestructable.

    I wear a watch daily as well. I have a cheap Casio for work and a Raymond Weil for times when something nicer is called for.

    I hate having to dig out my phone and turn it on just to see what time it is when I can just glance at my wrist.

    My go to watch is a Pulsar Solar (made by Seiko) for 30+ years given to me by wife on a wedding anniversary. Never had to wind it or replace the battery. It still keeps perfect time. I even began scuba diving with it at the age of 63. It's good to 100 meters.

    Tried to.

    Got an Apple watch.

    It's just redundant.

    Watches are now just for old people and will die off with them.

    Yup, makes it easier than pulling the phone out of my pocket..Im old school enough that if for some reason I dont have a watch on I actually forget that i can just look at my phone.

    My exact thoughts also..Its MUCH MUCH easier to just take a quick glance at my wrist Vs try to dig the phone out of my pocket...especially when im shooting or fishing or Biking and may have my hands full ...I dont think I could ever go no watch ONLY phone.

    I have a $2000.00 Swiss watch that sits in a drawer. Meanwhile, I wear my $90.00 Fitbit smart watch daily because it does so much. I do bust out the Swiss watch for weddings, etc...

    When I was younger, I wore a watch 24/7.
    I felt nekkid if I didn't have a watch on my wrist.

    Now, I ONLY wear a watch, when I'm leaving the house.
    I wear my Dad's old watch, and I'm about to retire it to the nightstand.

    Looking at another Seiko or possibly G-Shock. Can't decide.
    I don't need a fancy watch, or one that tells time on the East Coast, Hawaii, the U.K., and Singapore, at the same time.

    :)

    Everyday of my life. I feel strange without one or two on. It started when I was 8 years old.

    It's not to get the time. My cellphone provides that.

    It's for the data points when I run, hike, SUP or Mtn Bike.

    Watches were here long before you were born, and will be around long after you're gone.

    When I look at my watch I see more than the time. I see the time it took someone to make it. I see tradition and excellence in manufacturing. I see my own life being traced by that second hand moving along. Every second that hand marks is one more second until I’m dead. I like to see that.

    Citizen eco with the radio update most of the time.

    i keep a timex ironman around for workouts and yardwork days.

    both give me multiple timezones. Both hold a great hack.

    I almost always wear one like shown in the picture below. I don't think I could go back to a watch without atomic timekeeping. I really like it except that the digital displays can only be read in very good lighting.

    I have a cheap timex expedition that I wear when I think I'll need to be reading it in low light or if I will be using the stopwatch or timer a lot, like during workouts. Also, my timex has a vibration alarm, so I wear it when I think I'll need that. It is bulky and doesn't have atomic, or else I would wear it all the time.

    I'm waiting for a good looking tough watch with vibration alarm, solar, and atomic. When one of those comes out, I'll replace my current watches.

    Yes, but only when I leave the house. It comes off as soon as I walk through the door.

    At the moment, I only have 2. This orange Seiko is my favorite and is what I put on 75% of the time...

    This Seiko is more for the dressin' up days....

    One of these days I'd like to buy a Rolex, just to own a Rolex.
