    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
    Are you asking because of the Cyanide and Happiness comic today?

    I wear a watch. I find glancing at my wrist easier and simpler than pulling my phone out my pocket. And I like analogue ^_^.

    Well spotted It got me thinking, is it only in America where watches are becoming out-dated, or are they getting obsolete over here as well?

    I carry a watch in my jacket (the strap broke off it years ago and I've never gotten around to replacing it). I also carry my mobile. If I just want to see the time I'll pull the watch out, but often I want to check the time and also see if anyone's emailed me, in which case I'll grab the phone.

    I wear a watch- I've worn one every day since I was about 7 (apart from when it needed repairing) so it feels reaaally weird if I don't now.

    I have about 5 really nice watches, but now that I'm not working and thus have my phone on me all the time I just don't wear them.

    Both . The strap on my current watch is a bit broken though, so I don't like to always wear it :erm:. Until I get a new one, I'll always carry my mobile at least :yep:

    I've noticed that a lot of people my age (around 19 or so) don't really wear watches; they use their phones to check the time. I got my watch late last year and I mostly got it for aesthetic purposes since I"m on my phone 90% of the time, however while in class or out trying to get things done, it's always easier to look at my wrist than to pull a phone out and turn it on.

    They did.
    Oops, my bad.

    Most of them aren't that nice actually. I think I'll stick to my BB for now.

    I tend to use both. Watch whilst at the bus stop, phone on the bus, watch at school and phone on the way home. Don't ask why though.

    I wonder where the inspiration for this thread came from... here, perhaps?


    It might be OCD-ish, but I have to wear a watch, yes, my phone and ipod can tell the time and I've always got them, but they're in my pocket, my watch is on my wrist and far easier to get to, much less effort.

    Besides, I like watches, I've got 4 of the buggers, might as well wear them.
