Re: Work Watch


I'm a big fan of the Timex Indigo watches, very inexpensive and seem to hold up pretty good. Got into the habit many years ago of wearing my watch face on the inside of my wrist, keeps it a little more protected.

I'm lost without my watch also. Old habits die hard.

Re: Work Watch


My first work only watch was a G Shock I have a solar powered one. Things invincible. I wanted to move to a more smart watch and couldn't find something I trusted that wasn't outrageous.

Now I wear either my g shock or a fit bit.

Re: Work Watch


I find I keep better time by wearing a watch. It set to ping every hr. Also reminds me to hydrate. It's friggin hot on these city rooftops. Timex expedition about 35/ bucks get 2-3yrs b4 band break's. I also like not reaching for oh. It can distracting. You'll check time then move on to looking at email or whatever.

I don't like the watch snagging on things. Don't wear one for work. Only when I go out I have a nice one.

Re: Work Watch


I don't need a watch.
Tell time by the sun.
back when I was younger and a working employee I used to wager bets with others that I could tell the time within 7 mins.

Always won.

Re: Work Watch


I sleep with a watch. Only leaves my wrist when I swap it for another watch. When I was in the hospital with my wife for our first child, I had my watch on 24 hours a day. After being there for a week it just stuck and I’ve been wearing a watch around the clock for 3 1/2 years.

Re: Work Watch


I have had a Samsung Gear S-3G for 3 years now. It has been a great watch. I like seeing notifications at a glance. It has been in the ocean many many times, pools, mud, doing demo, etc. On my 3rd watch band but that's it.

Re: Work Watch


No watch for me I'm usually reaching through cut outs to get wires and it's just to bulky and gets caught on things
