Although there is a similar thread on the Apple Watch board, I am interested in the opinions of the broader WUS hive mind. The introduction of new 4th generation Apple Watch, has come with some very useful health measures (e.g., ECG) not offered by Fitbit and others. As a result, I have started asking myself if I could bring myself to wear both an AW (right wrist) and a mechanical (left wrist).
Having reached a certain age and having a family history of heart disease, having the functionality of the AW (ECG, etc.) would be objectively beneficial. At the same time, I love mechanical watches and would not want to sacrifice the joy that they bring me. Would I feel a bit silly wearing both? Perhaps for a few days, but I would hope that it would not last. I know it is possible to turn off "features" that, for example, turn on the screen whenever the wrist is raised) making it less obtrusive.
I think I am convincing myself that one would be a watch, and the other would be a health monitor/fitness tracker (despite having the word "watch" in its name). Or perhaps it is just one of the benefits of having reached that same "certain age"... I do not really care what other people think of my wrist-wear. If I get one, I will wear the AW for my heart. I will continue to wear my mechanicals for my soul.
I am interested in the experience of others wearing both. And any advice on how to make the AW fly under the radar the most (e.g., black rubber strap or milanese because it won't contrast with any of my leather straps on my mechanical?).
