    I leave it on at night. Then I wake up with stupid "metal stains" on my wrist.

    I actually only wear my watch/bracelet/necklace when I go out. So nope I don't ever sleep with it on unless I pass out.

    I don't wear a watch (again, cell phone does that trick just fine) but I do take my ring off every night. If you wear stuff like that too much it tends to develop a nasty stink.

    I take my watch off at night because it is my alarm. I might not hear it if my arm is under a pillow.

    Is it just me, or are watches more of a fashion statement these days? Almost everyone has a cell phone with a clock on it, so a watch just seems redundant.

    I don't wear a watch because I want my arms to weigh the same. :D

    Which takes longer?

    A glance at the wrist, or

    a) remove cell phone from belt clip,
    b) open flip phone,
    c) glance at time,
    d) close flip phone,
    e) replace cell phone on belt clip

    Now, sitting in an office with a desk phone and a cell phone, that's redundant.

    True, checking your cell is less convenient. I figure it takes about 1-2 seconds to check a watch and about 6-7 to check a cell phone. So, say the difference is 6 seconds per check and you check the time 64 times a day. That's almost 6 1/2 minutes saved per day by using a watch. Pretty good, except I waste way more than 6 1/2 minutes a day posting stuff like this on TB. :D

    Having an office and cell phone isn't redundant. You only give your cell to people that need it... that way people calling about meanial crap can't bother you when you're out. Having a home phone and a cell phone... now that's redundant.
     
  18. I use my cell phone as a watch, plus it has a nice alarm. If you have Verizon, (it works on CDMA technology) the time is accurate to a very small split second. CDMA requires that the time is accurate to atomic clock standards in order to function. This way, I never have to worry about setting it (guess I'm just one of those "precision" freaks).

    Cingular (and others) works on GSM and the time accuracy is not as stringent.

    I dont wear a watch at all. I despise the thought of being tied, to time.
