    Re: QOTW: What do you wear on your wrist?

    Nothing most of the time. Nike Triax C6 when I am working out (if I remember).

    Actually I *think* that the one I have might be a replacement of the same watch. Memory kinda fuzzy now but when I first bought it the early 2000's, I used it *a lot* to the point where I might've worn it out and bought a replacement because I really liked it.

    But I think that the days are numbered on the one I am using now and with it being discontinued I think that I will give Polar a shot (because it's usually has better compatibility with other devices). I was actually going to buy a BT one a few years ago, but found out that it wouldn't have been compatible with the S3 which had a botched BT 4.0. Now that I have a new phone I will probably look again. But even though straps today can work with smartphones, and the S7 has a HRM built in, I'd much rather have someone strapped on my wrists than in my pocket when exercising.

    Re: QOTW: What do you wear on your wrist?

    All depends on mood and occasion, Usually it's nothing because I am getting too old to bother caring.
    If I go out, It's my 10+ year old Seiko kinetic watch that still works perfectly.
    Have gold bracelet and necklace but never wear the bracelet, Bit overkill in my opinion.
    Could see myself getting a smart watch in a few years, mostly for music playback for working out, But still waiting for a decent battery breakthrough.
    Last lot I looked at probably over a year ago had 30 minutes playback, Not enough it needs to be at least 1-2 hours.
    Ohh and it needs to be round can't stand the squarish/rectangular Apple watch, Reminds me of Fisher Price toys!

    Re: QOTW: What do you wear on your wrist?

    Citizen Eco, that is, until I seemingly misplaced it a week or so ago. Who misplaces a watch? How? I have a nicer watch, calvin klein, but it seems more fragile and I have a history of not being so gentle with my stuff so I try not to wear it that often.

    Nope, Galway is far too perpetually wet to bother cycling around it. But if I did, I still wouldn't be wearing a watch.

    A Poppy charity wrist band.
    Don't have a watch, I spend a lot of time looking at my phone or the computer so I can see the time already.

    Re: QOTW: What do you wear on your wrist?

    I used to wear a kinetic watch when in college about a decade ago (I feel old now). It felt a bit heavy to me on my wrist so I wasn't overly keen on wearing it and haven't worn anything since.

    Re: QOTW: What do you wear on your wrist?

    Apple Watch is my main daily driver and has been for well over a year. Before that it was the Pebble Steel. I do have a few traditional timepieces like to wear on special occasions though.
