On the down side, the mechanism doesn't work and the minute hand fell off - so I'm giving it back.

Yeah, I think I'd consider that something of a flaw.

Yes to the question I do wear a watch (not all days), the latest one I wear was gifted to me by my daughter, and it has a cute band and clock face. It's also a small reminder of my daughter's acceptance, they get me feminine items now for gifts... and it's appreciated, so yes I wear it and feel good about it.

I stopped wearing a watch in 2002 when I left my last real job. Then smart watches came along, and the promise of all that fun tech on my wrist was too much for me to ignore. I enjoy being a geek girl. I do make sure it has a blingy band, though.

Never used to, just fold stand having one on my wrist. Carried a pocket watch for a long time but cell phone made that redundant. Have worn a Fitbit the last couple years though. I have a few different color bands and some jewelry styles of bands for it so it's not boring.

I wore a watch from when I was a kid until about a decade ago. My watchband broke and I decided I really didn't need a replacement. I rarely do anything on time schedule and I'm usually near a clock, anyway. I might buy one again for fashion purposes only, but that's it.

I don't carry a cell phone with me most of the time, either. I just take it if I really need one, which is rare.

 Day to day I wear a Citizens dive watch. My wife gave it to me as a 40th birthday present- now i'm 50. Due to an error in ordering I received the ladies version which is less bulky than the mens. I have worn it and love it ever since 2009. Im so glad I ended up with the ladies version!

I wear a watch to tell the time.  I use my phone for making phone calls.  (mutters: Duh, kids nowadays!)

When I go out anywhere, I wear a watch, because I like knowing the time of day. I got an Invicta self-winding watch for that purpose.

i have never wore a watch but when i decided at the end of 2014 to lose weight i was exercising a lot and walking. Somewhere are around 3 years ago i decided to get a fitbit to make sure i was making at least 10,000 steps a day and it just stuck from there.

 I found a cute rose gold metal band for it and never take it off now. when i started 2014 was over 240lbs probably closer to the 250lbs , im now at 147lbs and never want to go back. The fitbit is a great motivator and now never take it off except to shower.
I never liked watches but love the fitbit

Great to hear that the fitbit helps!  I  routinely weigh myself with a balance beam scale.

Sometimes I wear a watch to glance at to see what time it is.

I personally like watches a lot, and I wear one any time I go somewhere. I prefer analog to digital just because they look better imo. I'm also partial to skeleton watches. These are my two favorite watches I own:

Under no circumstances should anyone wear two watches at the same time, as you may be thought of as a two-timer.   :)
