That's what a watch used to be. Could tell time. Date. Stopwatch

different value to different people.


I bought a Watch 4 for my SO. I wasn't sure if she'd take to it as
she's not into the joy of gadgetry. But within a few days she was using
more and more functions (esp. timers for cooking and other things),
exercise (running, yoga, others) and even occasional use of Siri.
Quickly taking notes on it is another useful thing (or checking notes
she created on her mac or phone).

Yes, these can be done on her phone, but she doesn't carry that around
at home or at work. Leaves the phone in her purse usually.

2 years in, she makes sure it's charged for the next day's use.

I personally haven't carried around a watch in over 2 decades. My
phones (even the "dumb" cell phones) provided time.

I'm tempted to get an Apple Watch - but don't like the idea of having
anything on my wrist all of the time.

I also don't like to wear a watch (or any jewelry for that matter).
There's a computer in every room of my house with the time displayed at
the bottom right. There's a thermostat (not a 'smart' one) in the living
room with the time. And the dashboard clock in my truck gets set twice a
year (time change) and remains reasonably accurate.

No one really needs a watch to tell time - we all carry
phones around.

Far easier to glance at one's wrist (any type of watch) than fish one's
phone out to check.


not always. sometimes it's easier to look at a phone than push back a
jacket sleeve to uncover a watch, no fishing required.


Only if you are are millenial and/or carry your phone in your hand every
waking minute.


nope. it's much easier to take a phone out of a handwarmer pocket than
push back a sleeve, especially in colder weather when there may also be
gloves involved.

smar****ches do a *lot* more than just tell time, including saving
people's lives and even the potential for early detection of covid-19.

But I don't like to wear a watch, "smart" or otherwise. I find them
uncomfortable. How does the smar****ch get around that?

The problem wearing an Apple watch (or any other health
monitoring device 24/7) is that the thing collects very personal
data about you and your health and you can never be sure about
what happens to this data. If you are unlucky, your data gets
into the wrong hands.

Anyway, does the watch have a direct connection to the mobile
network?


the cellular models do.

If not, when you leave the phone at home, you lose all
connectivity while outside.


nope. they also have wifi.
