I have to have a watch, and wear it on my left wrist. It's almost always a Timex Indiglow, and it must have a calendar option. My phone is always so buried in my purse that I'm lucky to get to it before it stops ringing, so a watch it is...

I wear a watch on my left hand as I'm right handed.

I am right-handed and wear my watch on my right wrist. I had my first watch on the left hand but when I started to play the accordion I recognized that I can´t play with the watch on my left wrist. So I started to wear it on the right wrist.

I'm right handed and wear my watch on my right wrist. I used to wear two watches, both on my right wrist. :lol:

I don't wear watched. I can't stand the restriction the band puts on my wrist.

I'm a righty, so having it on my left wrist is less awkward.

I stopped wearing a watch way back in the 1970s in late grade school - hit the point where the feel of it was intolerable.
Wore it on right since I was left handed.

I wear mine on my left, and I'm getting a new watch with the AGT judges as a design on it soon (hopefully!) :D .

Neither. I could never get used to wearing a watch. Well, I tried for a brief period, but eh.

If I wanted to have a timepiece that was always with me, I'd rather have a display cybernetically implanted in the top part of my wrist, though I'm not sure which one. I'm right handed, so it would seem I'd want it on my left hand, but somehow putting it on my right would be more intuitive. At first I was thinking I'd want it to be like a smartwatch with a touchscreen, but that would be inconvenient, and since I'm going into cyberpunk territory anyhow, I'd actually prefer it to be controlled by a brain implant. I'd be able to turn the display on and off with thought alone, use it to display information like the ambient temperature or my heart rate, and other things like that. I wouldn't allow it to have networking capabilities however; that would be too risky since it would be interfacing directly with my mind and body. I wouldn't want it to become infected with malware that fries my brain. :P

Since cell phones have been a thing I have found it weirder and weirder to see people wearing watches...you have a phone, just look at that. IDK I just know last time I saw a guy wearing a watch I was perplexed about it for like 20 minutes because smart phones.

People are starting to wear FitBits instead. I hate the feel of wearing things like them & watches so I just look at my phone. I wasn't allowed to look at my phone when I was working unless I was on break so I kept a watch in my pocket.
