    Yes, you can set time manually, just like a regular non-BT watch.

    That's fantastic, thanks for the quick reply.

    I forgot to ask, whilst not being a deal breaker, can you swap the date positions? Australia reads as day/month/year as opposed to the US m/d/y

    In answer to the OP question, my lack of interest derives from my total dislike/distrust of a 'smart' phone. The only smart thing about it is the company making them at a huge overpriced profit. There will be a day when folk who use these will realise the true cost to them, not only monetary, but in the total lack of privacy they afford. To some, they may not care that fleecebook, tweetbird etc have in their T&Cs that they can follow you about everywhere - all in the name to more accurately target marketing. Like when you walk past a coffee shop, a discount voucher appears on your phone. It's an insidious device, and if you feel that lightly towards your privacy, why not leave your home front door wide open in the same ethos of openness.

    I quite like a watch to be a watch, there's something spiritual about a device with a singularity of purpose, without having it connected to the world.

    Boy, I do love a good rant LOL

    Don't forget alll the new TVs being sold with cameras and microphone. Read the manual and you'll find that by purchasing the TV you are agreeing to being surveilled.

    "In 2015, Samsung drew criticism for its always-on voice detection privacy policy that stated, "Please be aware that if your spoken words include personal or other sensitive information, that information will be among the data captured and transmitted to a third party." Most Samsung smart TVs require users to press a microphone button before using voice commands, but the mic is always listening on models like the PN60F8500, which have voice recognition ("Hi TV"), as well as a built-in microphone and camera." From a CNBC article.

    A man wearing a watch, outside of purely social functions (where, strictly speaking, a watch is not supposed to be worn), makes it clear to everyone in his purview that they are in the presence of a man who considers his time something of value, not something to be wasted.




    A man wearing an ostentatiously expensive watch makes it clear to everyone in his purview that they are in the presence of a man who considers little.

    I actually have a 'smart' TV, but I've fooled it - I haven't connected it to the internet LOL

    I don't live in London, but where I live CCTV is prevalent and I don't mind one bit as it makes me feel safe when out. As for MI5, that too is fine with me, at least they have the decency to keep my passwords covertly & lie about it. LOL What I can't understand is peoples willingness to volunteer their privacy to private commercial companies in the vain activity of sharing photos of their dinner with the world

    When you're on the phone with MI5, ask for copies of all your wrist shots
