Since the time I have bought my mobile phone i.e. 5 years back, I have stopped using wrist watch as I have the mobile phone which tells me the time as well. So i felt that wearing a wrist watch is an unnecessary accessory. But when I used to wear a wrist watch, I used to wear an analog one. What type of wrist watch do you prefer to wear?

I wear an analogue wristwatch, but only tend to wear it when I am out and about. Indoors I take it off because there are clocks in every room. And I don't like to feel things strapped around my wrists or hands. I do not like wearing rings for that same reason. My phone also shows the time, but when out and about it is easier to just look at my wrist than keep taking my phone out of my pocket :-)

i stopped using a wrist watch when i was just 13. i hate wearing a wrist watch. when i felt it was so important to have a wrist watch then i used to wear somewhat like during exams or some other events. Now if its a watch its my mobile phone as i dont really feel i need a separate device just for displaying the time. I have it in my mobile phone. But even if i feel like wearing any wrist watch it would be a digital one, for i need all things like the alarm, stopwatch etc. hope i dont get the need for a watch soon.

No watch at all, just cannot get use to wearing one nowdays, but back in the days, it was an digital, mainly because I was younger and couldn't really understand the concept of an analogue clock and how you can read the time. But now around the house, most are digital.

I rarely wear a wrist watch, cause they annoy my skin. But when i do, i wear an analog one. I always carry a mobile phone so i still know the time. Best wishes to you, ranjeet

I have both and I wear both. No special preference as long as the watch does what it is intended to do. Feel a digital one is more reliable though.

I feel naked without a watch. I doesn't matter what else I have that tells time, I feel lost without my watch. It is a habit. I don't like digital watches. To me, they don't keep time as well as the other ones. Not only that, the digital watches have become so advanced that it is hard for me to figure out all of those buttons.

I haven't worn a watch for over 10 years. I don't like wearing them and all I used to do was look at the time too much. When I'm at work I have a clock in the room and if I'm out and about I look at my phone. Its nice not to know what time it is sometimes, especially when I have to attend boring meetings. I think its such a time and I get really happy when it is later than I expected. Sad I know.lol

I wear an analog watch, I bought it while on holiday for $299.95 AUD. I love it, its great. I don't like digital time, I like seeing all the dials moving and stuff. Plus analog watches look nicer and more professional, digital watches are more of a child watch in my opinion. No offence to anyone. :)

I never wore watch except when I was in eleventh class for some time then after wards when I was newbie in a new job. Then later on when I once owned mobile phone then I began to see time on it. I preferably not like to wear watches because I feel some kind of heaviness on my hands. So watches have just faded away from my memories. And since I also not own mobile now so watches now are seems meaningless proportion to me.

But To take heed of the time I usually refer the computer clock and the wall clocks that do almost hang every where. So you can say I just use any kind of watches and clocks to view the time.

I used to wear an analog wrist watch, but it started to hurt my wrist after awhile, so I just couldn't wear the thing anymore. I'm going to start wearing it today because I have work tonight. I'm not allowed to have my cell phone at work or at school, otherwise, I just wouldn't use a wrist watch at all anymore.

Normally I don't wear any wrist watch unless it's needed during my working hours. My work is closely related with time as I have to alot time properly for different periods of time. I prefer to use the analog as I am acustommed to it and more over it was gifted by my hubby as my birthday present.

I wear an analog watch. Old habits are hard to break. I prefer it because this is how I was taught. I have a really nice Citizen's watch that my mom gave me years ago.

HI there ranjee. I use two both kinds. I use an analog one when i just go out somewhere like a club, bar, malling or anywhere apart from work. At work, I use digital. I must not be late and this should be literally synchronized to the company time.. as in literally and digitally. haha.

I don't wear any watch anymore because I need to put on my crystals collection *laughs*! Besides, like you said, I have a cell phone and I could just watching the time on the cell phone if I need it. Also, I tend to peek at other people's watches when I am on the street if I am too lazy to take my phone out and watch the time. I used to wear a analog watch and I always wore one. I don't know why, but I think an analog one looks more sophisticated and better.
