    Watches are weird... I prefer getting the time digitally and be able to look at my phone to see if I've got any notifications anyways.

    I stopped wearing a watch in my early teens. That was 2 decades ago and I haven't worn a watch since. It just didn't feel comfortable having something sit on my wrist like that.

    I don't like watches; I can keep the time with my phone, but I find watches really uncomfortable and noisy, especially when you're using a laptop, so I stopped wearing them.

    I don't like to wear watches because I think that it just makes you rush everywhere. I don't like the feeling of a countdown, like you would have a countdown to life for example.

    I feel like if you wear a watch you always have to be somewhere . Like wherever you are now is not as important as where you need to be going.
