    I wear a watch every day, even though I have a mobile that can tell the time. It seems like I'm one of only a few people in my year who wear one, when most people just look at their phones when they want to know the time. And also, most people tend to wear theirs as a fashion accessory, I use mine purely as a functional item. In short, I'm interested if watches are going out of fasion now.

    I use my phone. Mainly because when I wear jackets, long sleeves, etc it is quite difficult to get to my watch. Plus the watch I have doesn't quite fit me and I have to keep turning it around.

    Always a watch. The only time I don't have one of them on is when I'm in the shower. Too annoying to not have that weight on my wrist.

    Most of the time, neither. I just roam around being incredibly late for everything because I don't wear a watch and always forget my phone/ let it run out of battery/ turn it off so people don't ring me and try to invade my ears with their voice.. it's not particularly practical

    I normally wear a watch, even though most people in my school don't. What this means is that I get the regular entertainment of seeing the watch-less person sitting next to me tilting their head this way and that to take a peek at my watch for the time, which I deliberately hide from their view... nah, jokes

    I always wear a watch. Feels really weird without one, and my phone is generally in my bag (i.e. not easily accessible :p:).

    As for whether it is a fashion accessory, mine is a nice watch that fits with everything I wear but I don't wear it to look good or because other people wear one.

    I wear a watch. Have done since I was about 6, so it's also a habit- it just feels weird not to have one and mine goes with just about anything, so i'm not worried about the fashion side
