Does anyone wear a watch anymore?

I used to have to have a watch on at all times. I think I was obsessed with being on time. Now that I have freed myself from my watch, I feel so much better. Yeah I have a clock in the car and a cell phone I can peek at but generally I know about what time it is and only check it if I have to be somewhere at a specific time. Do you wear a watch and is it for fashion or to know what time it is?

I don't wear watch anymore. I use my cellphone to check the time. I have my cellphone with me all the time anyway.

Same here, it doesn't require batteries, adjusts for time changes and is supposed to be the most accurate time.

That is funny that you drew one on your wrist! So what time was it always on your pretend watch?

well, it would wash off so the times would vary...i usually made it for 11:11 or 12:00, sometimes 3:15 when school was over

I still wear a watch for both fashion as well as time. I do make sure to take it off when I am with my family and on weekends. I usually keep my office mobile also away during these time periods. But, during the weekdays and office hours both these are very much an important part of my accessories. Cheers! Ram

I don't wear a watch because I'm allergic to metal and even the smallest metal part gives me a rash right away. SO, like you, I feel free :) Actually I"m probably even more free because I don't usually have my cell phone - mine is pay as you go and I only put money on it, when I need it - and I don't drive so no clock in the car either. If sometimes it can be a bit of a problem, specially if I'm late and want to know what time it is, most of the times it just makes me feel great that there is no watch "telling" me what to do with my time:)

I don't wear a watch anymore since my cell phone has a clock on it, I tend to use that instead, I have noticed that many people don't use watches as often as they used to.

I always wear a watch .I think have a watch is convenient for me to know the time.Though we may all have a cell phone ,I still like wearing a watch.You know with it I can know the time more easier .Even,sometimes we have to power off the cell phones ,watch shows its useful. I like wearing a watch not only for know the time ,but the fashion.

That's funny that I have found this thread, because yesterday when I was xmas shopping at Target. I saw some nice watches that they had on clearance for $9.00. Now i haven't worn a watch in years, but in a way I miss just flicking my wrist to see the time and not having to dig for my cellphone. Anyhow, I was kind of going over my budget so I had to scale down on some of the items in my cart and guess what was one of the items that I put back. Yup you guessed it, my watch. I figured, hey I can keep on using my cellphone. Happy Holidays Everyone!

Yes I still wear a wristwatch, mostly for fashion because I like it. But it's okay if ever I forget to wear it because I have my cellphone anyway.

I just got a watch for a birthday present and I forget sometimes that I have it on. I like knowing it's there, but I rarely look at it.

i still wear a watch. ^__^ not because i'm obsessed with time but because it comes in handy when i need to know the time and there's no clock around and my cellphone's battery is empty. ^__^;; and the main reason why i wear a watch is for fashion purposes. LOL
