Consider the watch a labor-saving device. You don't have to snap open your A-2 pocket, pull out the phone, wake up the phone, look at the time, put the phone back in the pocket and snap the flap. You just turn your wrist and look at your watch. Boom.
The iPhone is also damn convenient for setting your watch.
To me a watch is the only jewelery MAN may wear.
If an IPhone ( or others) does the job .. fine.... A real /chrono watch is more ... ... a lot of historical events happened thanks to a precise accurate watch... not thanks to an IPhone...IMHO....A real good watch gains value ... hahaha for a phone...For the records, I have an issued IPhone since its on the market.... and not sure I will like one after my very soon retirement...( any so called “ smart „ phone.) Watches nice one any time if no battery or no other electronics in there.
So... here...why discussing...buying ( or not) ELC, GW, Aero , BK, BR, RMZ and not only staying with all other kind of jackets available...? IMHO..
all I do is take the phone out of my pocket/back pocket and the movement of me doing that turns on the home screen with the time. Not much more effort than a glance at a watch AND I don't have to wear anything on my wrist which I prefer. That said not meaning for this to become a watch vs. phone thread!
Thx ... great.. doing the same...
Possible or not time check in an airplane... does not work for me during a 12-14H flight...No military intervention takes place based on TEAM using Crapola ... they team time it with the real ( all automatic driven tools..)
Questions; What happens if :watch IPhone does not work if the battery is down and the charging is not available right „ now“ ... in many countries this happens every glims of time.
Not wanting to look at my IPhone when swimming in the pool or sea with my grandkids ...
