I only wear a watch while I'm at work as I can't have my phone in the pit. Otherwise, I usually just use my phone. If I were going somewhere a little fancier, I might wear my watch with my suit or whatever other more formal apparel I might wear.

I quit wearing a watch years ago after I broke several of them restraining inmates.

I don't wear a watch at home, but when I go out for the day or night I do.

I wear this watch everyday as to remind me when I'm frustrated at a problem/scenario that I have yet to overcome in IT - it's a reminder that everything is fixable - no matter how complex or simple the issue is.

I stopped wearing watches quite a while ago as well. I have my phone on me and there's always a clock on the wall when it's hard to get to my phone. I'm excruciatingly picky about my watches (Can rarely find one I like) and I was constantly breaking them. So eventually, I just decided it wasn't worth it.

Can't keep pulling my phone out of the pcoket everytime I need to check the...time. Or reaching over for the phone if it's on the table, either.

Just a glance at your wrist, and you're up to date with the latest...time.

don't own a watch to wear. I don't like to keep track of time so closely, if I have somewhere i need to be I will set an alarm on my phone to warn me but that is as close as it gets to looking at the time as i get.

When I was a kid, I always wore a watch, but after a while the bands kept breaking, so I just kept the watch, bandless, in my pocket. About half way through high school, I got a phone, and that replaced the watch in my pocket. I'd like to start getting into wearing watches again, but I just don't even know where to start looking. I'm torn between a geeky digital watch or a classy analog watch.

I have a Timex "Iron Man" watch that I bought in Basic Training. It cost $35, kept perfect time for about 3 years until the battery died. I just put a fresh battery in it and will continue to wear it until it breaks. It literally followed me from Fort Jackson, SC to Georgia, to Washington state, then to Kuwait and Iraq, and back to Washington, and now to Kentucky. After surviving all that, even though it's kind of a cheap watch, it has a sort of sentimental value to me.

I Used to, but then I got a job as a telecoms engineer and stopped wearing them as they often got in the way when having to work on distribution blocks

Also I tended to like the ones with metal bands which weren't allowed in-case you got a spurious voltage off the line same with rings.etc

Now I don't wear one because I work at a computer a lot and I find it gets in they way when typing.
