    Do you "always" carry your cell phone? As opposed to a watch...

    So, I'm rather new to this forum, and seem to keep stumbling upon do/why/when do you wear a watch threads. SO, here is a counter thread.

    I ask this counter question: Do you ALWAYS have a phone/ipod/mp3 player and/or a pda on you???

    For me... A resounding NO. I actually do my best to leave my cell phone every opportunity that I get. Now, it will be close by if I need it... But if possible, it will not be on my person. Example; If I walk in to the store, I'll leave the phone in the car. If I go for a short walk or a bike ride, I'll leave it in the house. It will NOT be near the supper table if out for dinner.

    I relish the fact that I grew up before the mobile phone or internet was available to the general public. While I love being connected, and have embraced the technology, I still find it nice to go offline for a few minutes, if not hours at a time.

    Yes! I do turn if off at night though; many of my friends keep it on all night long.

    I do carry mine for the most part but I can live without it and I never use FB or anything like that.
    A watch ALWAYS has to be on my wrist during the day though!

    Gotta have one...I'd say there are very few scenarios in which a watch is necessary. There are some, in special situations where people have to deal with harsh conditions or are located in remote areas.

    For me a watch is more about jewelry, conversation, and a nice backup...

    Always have a watch or smart phone? No. But I usually have the phone for telecom, web searches and telling time. And a watch for telling time and enjoying how it looks.

    A watch is always on my wrist when I'm out of the house. My cell phone is on me also when I'm out of the house. But, my cell is always on vibrate, as I hate ring tones, so if I catch the call or text, then I get it, if I don't, I don't.

    The only reasons I have a cell phone are for call at work and so my son's school can reach me in an emergency. My experience is that personal electronic devices tend to make life more complicated than necessary and I'm happier without them. It amazes me how much time my friends and coworkers waste on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites in the quest to stay connected with everyone.

    A watch is rather benign and just sits on my wrist until I need the time. It doesn't demand my attention and I don't have to pay outrageous monthly fees to use it.

    I can live without it and my wife is pretty much my social media updater. I have my mobile phone always on me though for very important reasons (to text my wife to ask if i've forgotten anything).

    no, I can do without my phone every now & then.

    especially since I dont have a smart phone (mine is really dumb). Beside, I'm not in to social media, I'm too anti-social for that stuff, lol.

    Sometimes I forget my phone. I never forget my watch.
