    Exclamation No watch because you have a phone? But my phone is mechanical...

    The Speedmaster is the only thing we took to the Moon that had no modification whatsoever Ė it was right off the shelf. Whatís interesting about my first one is that itís beat up, itís never been cleaned, itís never been repaired and to this day I can take that watch and wind it and it keeps time as well as the day I got it. And Iíve walked in space with it for two and a half hours and worn it on the Moon for over three days.

    Wow, that's kinda cool, but a $100k for a phone? Looking at how my phones hold up after a little time, not to sure about this one.

    Phones are horribly outdated after three years so I wouldn't be willing to spend anymore than I have to for a decent smart phone.

    I've always wondered if they could toss a rotor in there to keep it charged up while I'm walking around.

    Most people wear their phone on their hip, so unless you are a hula or belly dancer, or just like shaking your hips as you strut down the street, a rotor won't do you much good.

    (Although, I suppose you could strap your phone to some part of your body that gets a little more motion...)
