Do you still use a watch?

With the advent of new technologies and mobile world, I'm sure most of us have smart phones now and even with the basic model you will have all the utilities like clock, timer, alarm etc. But if you ask few people like my dad never gives up wearing a watch .. he follows that from his childhood and that makes him more punctual to carry a hand watch with him. Mobile phone is just a secondary option to him. How many of us would still prefer to use watches? I'm not the person who uses a watch.. I feel I get everything in a mobile. How about you ?

Well, since my mobile is always in my purse when out and about, a watch is easier for me.

@Corbin5 It's the same for me, the wrist watch is always in view.

@LadyDuck Yes, digging into my purse to retrieve the cell phone is just a hassle for me.

I do not care at all for a mobile, I have always used a wristwatch and I prefer it to the mobile.

I like to wear watch.It looks awkward to check time on mobile phone in meeting or special occasions.

Well said. It's unprofessional behaviour to see time during meeting in a mobile. People might think we check whatsapp notifications.. ;)

Hmm watch has its own merits. But people like us aren't comfortable with it for some reasons.

I have one watch right now that works. I wear it when I am getting dressed up. If its hot outside I do not wear it. I hate the feeling that any type of jewelry leaves on my skin when it is hot outside.

That's good. Do you like to match up watches to your dress?

I don't wear a watch so often but sometimes it's more easy to check time on it than take a phone and look from that

Very true.. mainly when it is theft-prone zone, it is better to have watches over phone
