I won't ever give up my wrist watches. I have one for every occasion. I feel something is lacking when I'm not wearing one. I always keep my cellphone in my bag so a wrist watch is a quicker way for me to look at the time.

I do wear a wrist watch because I can't have my mobile phone with me at work. Also, I think it's a nice accessoiry and it's much more easy to take a quick look at your wrist than getting my cell phone out of my bag. I never put it in my pocket because I don't like the feeling of it sitting in there and I am too afraid it falls out or gets stolen. I personally feel it would be a loss if people stopped wearing watches. We are losing more and more things from older and quite recent times due to this digital revolutions. I have an analogue wrist watch and I wear it on my left wrist.

We can't stop new inventions from taking away the old ones.I think wrist watch remains in its glory as it quickly shows the time in a wrist turn and also seen as an ornamental beauty too.Cheers!

I stopped wearing wrist watches three years ago, it is replaced by my cell phone. I also use my cell phone to make calls, listen to music, play games, set alarm, take picutres, send text messages....the list goes on. I am also not fond of watches.

Yes!Apart from communications,cell phones serve many purposes.Of which some are entertaining and some other are useful in day to day life.Cell phone taking over wrist watch is a good example for its other uses.Cheers!

I hate holding a cellphone in my hand all the time. Besides, I have to be careful not to misplace it. So, its usually in my purse. When needed, out it comes and back again inside. A wrist watch is a must for me. I need to know the time and it is a big necessity for me. Id go crazy if I had to keep looking at the cellphone for time. No thank you. Not for me. I love wearing watches.

Well,that is the difficulty for a woman to face.As for us gents it is as easy to have it in the shirt pocket and look for the time whenever needed.But sure,it is not as easy as in a wrist watch.Cheers!

I am still using a wrist watch. Despite the technological advancements the world is going through, I still choose to stick with the classics. In my own personal opinion, a wrist watch is still very functional and at the same time fashionable. I do have a cellular phone, but I find it easier to check the time in my wrist watch than from my cellular phone which I have to grab inside my bag or my pocket.

agree im still using a wrist watch. i dont like the idea of looking at my cellphone to check time, besides it wont look good when you are with somebody or in meeting taking out cellphone and looking for what time is it.

We are quite the same.I don't know why but one day I also get tired of wearing my watch when I had my cellphone. Or because I am a person who is not fond of any accessory maybe that is why I have given up my watch when I had my cellphone.

I never have a wrist watch. I can't afford it before. And now I think it's unnecessary to have it for me. the cell phone is totally replace the watch on the aspect of practice. Watch is coming to a symbol of status and personal hobby gradually, losing his practice value. what do you think? pal.

I still wear wrist watch. I am used to wearing it ever since. I feel uncomfortable whenever I don't wear any watch. It's fine wit me if I do have my cell phone clock synchronized with my wrist watch. Oh well, different perspective in terms of usage and aesthetic.

I haven't worn a wrist watch ever since I was a child... I don't like wearing watches for some reason... I do have a pocket watch, however... That's what I usually go by...

I wear a watch. This is where I check the time. I keep my phone in my purse so it is easier to check the time on my wrist. So I use mine for a purpose but it is super cute! It is all silver with Mickey Mouse on the face. But it looks elegant so you hae to look very closely to see the Mickey!

In terms of functionality the cellphone totally owns the wristwatch, so why do some still wear wristwatches? Maybe for ornamental or aesthetic reasons, or maybe they're just used to. It's just a matter of preference you know.

I used to wear a watch out of habit until last month when it stopped working & I have got no time to repair it. I am so much addicted to this watch from last 10 years that now when from last one month I am not wearing that watch I feel a lit bit uncomfortable & I get frustrated when I don't find the watch to see the time. LOL!!!

I don't wear a watch anymore. I got my cell for a clock so I think a wrist watch isn't necessary anymore. But I think others would still wear it if they have some sentimental value on it...
