    Re: Should I wear my Tag Heuer to the gym?

    I wore my Tudor Ranger to the gym once. Like your Aquaracer, it's my "no worries" watch; I'll wear it without worrying about what's going on, for the most part. But working out at the gym, using weights and machines, I was like "this is dumb, this is still a $2,000+ watch to be risking for no reason". I grabbed my Suunto Core that I got for free with points and started wearing that. Then, recently, I got a new Fitbit that has a strap. Normally I just keep it in my pocket, but I put the strap on and wear it as a watch when I go to the gym. It's small, light, out of the way, and it tells the time. And it was like $70, so if it breaks, no big deal.

    How did it get so late so soon?

    Wear what you like. Your watch, your wrist.

    Seeing any watch, other than fitness bands or maaaaaybe the Apple Watch at the gym, looks weird and out of place to me. Like working out in jeans and/or a polo.

    I prefer to take a buddy with me to the gym, as I have found based on previous experiences, watches are not very good spotters.

    Nope. Seems to me like this is one of those questions that if you feel the need to ask, the best answer is probably “no”. I mean, any lingering doubt or insecurity is gonna throw you off your game. You’ll be fidgeting with the watch, constantly looking at it and making adjustments. You’ll look awkward and uncomfortable and it’ll lead to some serious self-conscious second-guessing....which will in turn lead to one of those horrific weight-stack finger severings we see all too often.

    Bottom line: until you intuitively know, beyond all shadow of doubt, that you should wear a watch to the gym....you’re simply not ready for it.
