What is this "pulling out a phone" you speak of? Mine stays in my hand, and I can't honestly remember a time when I put it in a pocket of any kind.

"pulling out a phone" must be some new crazy shit you idiotic kids do, who knows.

>> No.23872508

here we go, obligatory 100 posts before retards stop clamoring about pulling out phones, turning on the screen and possibly needing to unlock just to tell the time.

nevermind depth meters, instantly available GPS coordinates, compass, stopwatch, altimeter and waterproofing that many watches have, and many situations wherein keeping a cell phone on you and powered on are either prohibited or possibly inappropriate.

You know that really common and really simple Casio plastic digital watch? The kind that got people in trouble in Iraq because the American military associated them with terrorists using them for bomb timers?

Day of week, date, corrects time automatically, generally more reliable, more alarm functions, barometer, altimeter, etc.

Granted, not all functions are used all the time, and by everyone. But even they have their uses.
