    How do you tell time?

    Not using the clock on your computer, how else do you tell time?

    I'm surprised at the percentage of watch users.
    Seems like everybody has a cell phone now. Why would you carry an extra accessory?

    I have always worn a watch. I'm not into jewelry, but
    I love fine watches.

    Best, John

    I like wearing a sport watch when I'm walking around. It's easier to look at my wrist than to fumble with my phone. At clients' homes, I usually find a clock (like a microwave) to keep track of time. I can glance unnoticed without being rude - some people like to talk and talk and talk.

    I use a watch, can't stand carrying a cell phone. I do not want to be contacted at all times, they can wait a couple of hours or days to hear from me.

    For instance if you spend a fair share of your time on flights, a watch comes in handy, as switching on and off your cell 5 times a day, gets annoying to say the least.

    I went all the way back to basics, and got myself one of the old fashioned pocket watches.

    This. Also don't usually carry my phone on rides. I primarily use my watch. Timex Ironman has been my favorite for years, though I don't know how to use most of its features.

    I saw a video a few days ago where a dude had surgically installed a magnet in his wrist so he could wear his iPod Nano like a watch. Not sure what category that would count as.

    How would a Nano hold onto a magnet? Aren't they aluminum?

    It looks like he matches the magnets up with the screws on the back plate? See 0:32 mark. Maybe screws are magnetic stainless alloy like 420? I've only got an iPod classic, so not sure, and I honestly just breezed over the video quickly.

    When Im riding I can glance down and see the time on the go vs having to stop & get my phone out of the saddle bag.

    I am pretty good at knowing the time without a watch or my phone. You can develop a mental clock that works pretty good. As for knowing the date, I'm hopeless. I have to look that one up every time.
