Do You Wear a Watch?

Ask a Question

I used to wear a watch, but now I tell the time by looking at my mobile phone. When I ask my son if he wanted a watch for Christmas, he asked me why as he had a phone. So, is wearing a watch a thing of the past?

I still like wearing a watch sometimes, I did more so when I had a job that meant I had to pay close attention to the time

I don't wear a watch, haven't for many years. I check the time on my phone, laptop or nearest available clock, so don't really feel the need to wear a watch.

I used to wear a watch every day when I was a teenager, it was dainty and part bracelet, I loved it. I haven't worn one for a while but my brother bought me a beautiful expensive watch for Christmas last year, I will probably start wearing it next year. I think if I wear a watch now it will keep getting caught up with my disposable gloves

I have a couple but only wear the once in a blue moon. It's more a accessory nowadays. My friend wears one all the time, once I asked her for the time and she picked up her phone to tell me 😂

I wear an Apple watch, as much to track my fitness etc as to tell the time.

Like most on here I used to wear a watch all the time but haven’t worn one in years as like everyone is saying I have a mobile and I tend to look at that instead.

I wear a smartwatch and the feature I like the most is the stopwatch and heart rate monitor features.

I got fed up fishing my phone out of my handbag to see what the time was so when out and about I now wear a watch. It's so much easier and my phone isn't on show to potential baddies!

I wear a watch everyday, when working it was essential as phone was not allowed. It's a very nice Radley one (from TK Maxx) I keep the gold one I got as a 21st for 'special occasions'.

I’ve not worn a watch in years. And any watches I did have ran out of battery. These days, I just look at my phone for the time
