    Wear both real watch and smart watch?

    I will admit...I wear both a real watch (left) and GearS3 on my right. Any one else do such? (note that Gear usually unseen and real is above wristbone) I do like the quick access to email/texts and calls. I will wear Gear at night so I know the time when I awake at night. It has also located my phone a few times. I cant get over the genuine appreciation for real watches. I can take the heat. You may discuss how awkward this is. Continue, stop?

    While I don't do it that way myself, I can definitely see the advantage. I'm thinking about getting a Mi band, and wearing that on my non-watch wrist, for those times when I need longer battery life than my moto 360 can provide.

    I wear a real watch on one wrist and a Nokia Go on the other.
    Keep calm and carry on.

    Been thinking of a smartband for some time...not many available that shows texts..did have fitbit alta, but those texts were impossible and long to read. (basically had to look at phone to fully read it)

    Sure.
    Ive been doing this for a while now...

    [Starts thinking of ways to take a wrist shot of both wrists at the same time to prove it]

    Too many watches, too little time.

    Sent from my SM-G950F using DeX

    Problem solved.

    that is definitely different, I'll alternate between the two.
    There will be periods I'll leave the real watches in the case for weeks at a time
    and alternatively leave my apple watch off. Really just depends

    I was just about to start a similar topic. I got an Apple watch for Christmas and absolutely loved the practicality it brings me. I have not worn any of my other watches since then and feel a bit bad about it :(.
    I always thought it was a big no no to wear both, but maybe I should give it a try.

    Re: Wear both real watch and smart watch?

    I just can’t make myself do it. If I had a basic fitness band (think Fitbit Alta, for example), then its functions wouldn’t compete with the regular watch at all. But having two watches, similar in size and basic functionality, seems too redundant for me.

    Besides, it’s not like I’ve totally given up my other watches whenever I got new ones. My first “nice watch” is a Citizen, and I still wear it now and then after getting other, arguably nicer, watches.
