    you shouldn't be wearing a digital watch for anything other than cardio training.

    Not if you want a reasonable sense of style and sophistication.

    Yeah, it's a fashion thing these days. Even pilots have given up wearing those huge watches.

    I didn't realise people still wore watches for practical reasons? Use your phone if you want to know the time.

    Only reason to wear one is to get chix.

    I prefer to keep my phone out of my pocket. The radiation it emits affects my ability to impregnate the ladies.









    Edit: That and the fact I use words like 'impregnate'.

    Yeah, I've got a Citizen EcoDrive. Love a good watch with plenty of dials and a bit of colour. Has to be analogue, I couldn't even countenance wearing a digital watch every day.

    I love my watch. nice leather strap. You would't catch me in a digital watch unless I was jogging or training for something.
    Chicks who wear nice classical ladies watches impress me.

    Regarding phones vs watches. I won't buy a smart phone as I don't want to carry it around as it looks cumbersome. I am waiting for them to make a smart watch however and will be an early adopter. The current versions are ****e and require you to have a smart phone near by you. Also require recharging every day.

    Pretty sure smart phones aren't the only phones that show the time.

    It's a hassle to take your phone out every time you want to see the time.
