Sorry if it seems like a slow day. But what are everyone's views on smartwatches? I think they are a great tool and should be appreciated as a tool that is an accessory to our phone.
I love watches of all kinds from mechanical to quartz. I believe that smartwatches are here to stay for the long haul. If anything it gets most of the general public in the habit of wearing something on their wrist.
Yes I own and wear my smartwatch on a daily basis. But I'm using it as a step counter and sleep tracker as my fitness and sleep has been terrible lately. Since I've started wearing it, the watch has made me more cognizant of how inactive I was. What's nice is I can change the watchface and it looks like a new watch all the time even though it's the same watch. Not too dissimilar from changing straps on our favorite watches to change the look.
Also I've noticed that it has made me appreciate my mechanical watches more. Every time I look at the gear s3 frontier it makes me miss my other watches that little bit more but also makes me be amazed at the technology in a mechanical watch.
I'm following my self imposed rule of 1 watch per year. Next year I will be back to wearing a mechanical watch again. Going to be on the hunt for a yellow dial speedy.
