Obviously most people have phones now which can tell you the time. I was just wondering whether people still wear a watch or if they replaced it with their phone?

I wear it from time to time. If I had a nicer one, I'd be wearing it all the time!

I wear my watch every day. I have a cell phone that has a clock obviously, but I find it easier to look at my wrist than to pull my phone out of my pocket and turn it on to look at the time.

    Your order is meaningless. My chaos is significant.

Still wear a watch, not because I otherwise feel naked, I just need it for work

I wear a watch like once a year when I go to a major business meeting or a corporate event. So I've voted for the second option.

Nope, kinda redundant to have more than 1 way to tell the time, a multifunctional device such as a smart phone makes more since, and we all have one anyways.

Also seriously, how many times do you need to take your phone out to check the time? Every few hours maybe? The time a watch could save (from you lookin at it) really isnt all that much.


It maybe redundant but it is faster to just look at your writs than to pull out your cell phone. I don't have a smart phone anymore.

Need a new poll option.

Yes, I do wear a watch for formal occasions. Some venues its not cool or accepted to keep taking out your phone to check the time.

Most smartphones don't function at 130ft below sea level, so yes I need a watch :)

Pretty much this. It's also easier to glance at my wrist than it is to pull out my phone.

Nope, hate wearing anything on wrists, plus I always break them, gf bought me different wrist bands / watches etc, but they all end up in a draw
