    Do you set your watch to mute when its available?

    Do you set your watch to "mute" (no beep when changing modes) when its available?

    I found myself always mute the watch if the option is available

    I actually prefer the different tone you hear which signifies you've come full-circle back to the main time display. Using this audible signal, I can set an alarm and then flip back to main time display without even looking.

    Yes I mute them. They're not really necessary, and must be quite a drain on the battery if you use your buttons a lot.

    That's the only time they can be useful in my opinion. It doesn't justify me having them on though, but at the same time, I'd rather they were there for that reason and mutable, than not there at all.

    *Edit* I moved that into one post as they came out the wrong way round.

    I like the beeps. They're a positive indication of a button press. I could manage without them, of course.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    I have a Futurist

    This particular Casio comes with a vibrating alert which can replace the beep for alarms, hourly signal etc. I use this in places when I will definitely not hear any beeps like the recent Comex (Consumer PC exhibition held last weekend in Singapore).

    I agree with that, though I'm not sure if any of my G's can be disabled at all....

    Same here. I used to have my Mudman on Mute Mode. But every time that I would put it on after just haven taken off one of my Basics, I would always pause for a second and wonder why it wasn't beeping when I pushed on the Mode button. Only to remember that it was in Mute Mode.

    It now beeps just like the rest of 'em..

    I don't need the beeps but I sure like 'em. I always have my hourly chime on as well.
    It's always sunny in Boise!!

    I keep the beeps off generally, and only turn them on for a specific purpose that needs them. I find the beeps annoying mostly...

    ...but I hate mobile phones too.
