I don't like it either. I used to wear it on my belt loop when I was younger. I now use my mobile to tell time. It also double as an organizer.

I've never worn one. I just don't like the extra weight on my wrist or it being tight/too loose around my wrist. Use my phone to tell time.

I hate expanding metal bands - they pinch. Otherwise, I'm OK. I currently were a sports watch and have no complaints.

I wear my watch on the 'wrong' arm; I'm right-handed but have always worn it on the right. When I was first given a watch as a child, I automatically put it on the right wrist, and that's where I've always worn it.

I also carry a bag on my right shoulder, which apparently is also 'wrong' for a right-hander, but it feels correct to me.

I wear wrist watches daily. The only problem with wrist watches is that if you wear then continuously all the time, without removing it when you get home, it leaves an dark-brown impression on the skin. (I'm African-american)

As long as they're not stainless steel (I'm allergic), I will wear them. Although it makes people ask me what time it is, and then I really have to think about it because I have difficulty telling time, and then they laugh at me for telling them it's "forty after five" instead of "five-forty".

Who wears watches anymore? In this day and age, everyone people have their cell phones, ipods, etc., wherever they go. Watches are obsolete.

Can't stand anything tight around my wrists, fingers, neck, waist, or ankles. Last night I felt like my socks were strangling my lower legs. But because I like knowing the precise time I took to carrying a watch in my pocket.

I'd use a cellphone but cannot tolerate the sound quality of cellphones, so don't have one. Other PDAs I've had have doubled as a watch (or clock, if you prefer).

I've worn a watch for most of my life. I usually wear sport watches with the rubber bands. I'm left-handed, and wear it on my left wrist. It would just seem odd any other way.

I'm the exact opposite - I've worn a watch just about every day since for 16 years. I flip out if I can't wear one or have forgotten to put it on.

Watches irritate my wrists. I've never liked them.

Got a watch when I was eleven and already concerned about timekeeping. Hardly ever took it off for about twenty years, then took to wearing it on a belt-loop. Couldn't wear it while learning to drive, and still like to take it off when stressed.

I really love watches, from a design perspective, but I can't stand wearing them. I don't like things touching my wrists (sleeves or near anything else). I always roll my sleeves up two folds.

But I do own a few watches, and I am always looking at new ones. So it is actually a bit of a struggle with me - I want to wear them, but I just can't do it.
