    There is this cool device where you just look at your wrist to check the time. You don’t have to pull anything out of your pocket and turn it on.

    A “smart” phone is only “smart” as the user is!! And so far, I have seen very few users that are “smart!!”

    That’s the way they do it downstairs. The only real clock down there is on the stovetop.

    Buy him an analogue non-digital faced watch with hands on it. For extra fun, get Wilberforce a slide rule. Probably be necessary to explain the slide rule is no a mislabeled ruler.

    What goes around comes around. Prior to the Second Boer War men preferred pocket watches. Now we’re back to pocket watches.

    I like those signs that say no cell phones because I’m using a smart phone. Different, right?

    My watch tells the time but I wear it for my heartrate, stress level and EKG reading, plus I can make calls on it.. Starting to feel like Elroy Jetson. Just waiting for the car that turns into a briefcase to ease up all this dam NYC traffic that the idiots decided to put dining tables in the zones designated for parked cars!

    I still wear a watch. I’m not one of those people with a death grip on my phone and who goes through life one-handed. :)

    oo… walked into that one.I find it interesting that young’uns don’t wear watches (i don’t either, but I’m retired) while rich guys have drawers full of uber-expensive watches they wear as jewelry

    the BEST part of my decades of Apple devices was using GarageBand to create a silent ringtone!

    Now it’s like having a pocket computer without the interference of a phone being involved!

    They could put a clock or two on the walls. I am tech oriented, but it’s so much easier to look at the wall than to grab my phone or dig up my watch under long sleeves. Plus I have an Echo, which shows the time. But he will get a smartwatch or phone I am guessing! Is he young enough to use the ruse that Santa is bringing it for free?

    I just replaced the batteries in two of the watches I regularly wear. Both are analog, although the Timex does have a digital display as well. I have to find somebody to give the wind-up Bulova (1960s), and the Elgin pocket watch a good going over. It will probably cost more than either watch is worth.

    Then when I am at an amusement park do all the kids with phones see my watch and ask me for the time?

    Answer: it’s a whole lot easier to take a quick look at your wrist than to pull a phone out of your pocket and then try to find the time buried among the widgets on the screen.
