    Pre-order a SS Milanese loop but I don't want to give up my daily Rolex Explorer 2.

    So have anyone worn 2 watches on both wrists ?

    How about an Apple Watch / Pebble and a mechanical watch :cool:?

    If I see someone wearing a Apple Watch on one arm and a mechanical watch on the other, I don't think I'll be able to contain my laughter.

    Seriously though, I do think this would look quite ridiculous. Probably be best if you use your Apple Watch in certain circumstances and the Rolex in certain circumstances rather than both at once.

    I love mechanical watches and will be sad not to wear one everyday like I do now, but two watches at once would be ridiculous!

    When I travel overseas I wear two watches.

    a Garmin 310XT which I use for geo logging. I then merge the tracks generated into Aperture. I've gone on 21 day trips and it's held all of the data when run all day. Sometimes if I'm lucky I can even track my flight over the Pacific or Atlantic. If you have a window seat on the north side of the plane it often works, depending upon the plane. The plan is to replace it with the Apple Watch.

    A regular watch. Not a mechanical one, I'm afraid, but just a Casio. The Garmin battery when it is tracking gives out at about 20 hours or so and if I'm on a trip with 24 hour flying and 36 hour transit time and no recharging available this is a backup. As the Garmin is usually on my tracking display (elevation, speed, lap time, lap distance) it's quicker just to look at my other wrist to see the current time.

    Not sure if the Apple Watch will replace the Garmin since it requires the batteries of both the watch and the phone for geotagging to work.

    I know I am, I frequently wear my entire watch collection up my whole arm. A lot of people think I have a crazy sleeve tattoo until they realize that it's actually just all my watches. My apple watch will be the beginning of my second watch sleeve.

    No, but I will probably end up wearing one of these on my other wrist because Apple choose not to put sensors in the watch that could actually save lives.

    One watch please, I have quite a few timepieces, Rolex etc and there's no way I'd wear an apple watch with another. You'll look like a TOOL.

    I too wear mechanical watches and feel sad the Apple Watch will be used 99% of watch wrist time. I will miss my mechanical watches but love technology and watches so the Apple Watch Wins......

    I wouldn't wear 2 watches, no way

    Now that seems super weird. But on some level it makes sense.

    First, the Apple Watch doesn't tell time all that well. Yes, it is perfectly accurate. But it doesn't display the time all the time and you have to call it up to see the time. Of course I haven't tried a working watch yet (the watch they show you at the try on demos on your wrist are non-functional.) But this is a real issue. So having a watch that can be glanced at is nice.

    Also the Apple watch does not look interesting an unique. Well at least it won't look that way by this Fall when 20 million folks are wearing it every day.

    The nice automatic can't do a whole boatload of stuff that Apple Watch can do. So this part of the analysis is obvious.

    So there is logic in having a wearable from Apple on one wrist and a fashion statement on the other wrist. I don't know if or when this becomes socially acceptable. But I wouldn't discount it as innately douche to do this.

    You should have ordered an Edition model (Rose Gold of course) to really show people. It would go well with the Rolex

    Lol, seriously though, if you ever see me wearing two watches at the same time... please feel free to kick me in the nuts repeatedly, while counting to a googleplex.

    Did they choose not to or did the FDA give them some trouble about it?

    Sometimes women wear multiple watches on the same arm as a fashion statement. It looks...not so good, but not horrible because they use decorative bracelets instead of regular bands. What you're proposing, well I actually tried recently. Just going through my old watches for nostalgia and I put one on one wrist and another on the remaining wrist. Looked in the mirror. Looked utterly daft.

    I will be wearing two paired to each of my two Bluetooth headsets; left ear and right ear. I would obviously keep a charger in my fanny pack, and a few spare straps tucked in my pocket protector.

    I will do it op. I will wear 2 watches. One on each arm when wearing long sleeved shirts, and two on one arm when wearing short sleeved shirts.
    Here is the confirmation you need to do what you want to do and wear 2 watches. Take pictures and share when you do.
