    Anyone use the line "If I take it off, it will lock" becouse you dont want others to handle/fondle your watch?

    I don't let strangers touch my stuff. Period. I wouldn't mind to take it off and let a friend/family member to try on if they are interested.

    Nobody touches my stuff, but then again, no one I've shown it to has asked to touch it.....

    No because adults don't need "lines" we say what's on our minds. If I don't want another to "see" my watch I simply say no. Try it.....

    Why would you ever need to? If someone asks to see it, you just turn your wrist toward them. That's all ;)

    Not a single person has requested that I take mine off and let them see it.

    Nah. In fact I even let one of the boys at my daughter's school wear mine for a few minutes because his dad was getting one and he expressed an interest in seeing what the watch could do and he was one of the more articulate and intelligent boys who could have expressed an interest in it. He didn't even ask to wear it, I offered.

    I've got Apple Care on it and it's already survived weeks with me gardening and landscaping. The kid was clean and trustworthy and the son of a good friend. So...no biggie. Of course I've had it over a month now. I was a bit fussy with it the first couple of weeks.

    The funny thing is one of the reasons I offered to let him wear it was the damned thing kept locking when I tried to let him simply hold it and demo it for him.

    Fondle??? What kind of people do you hang around with that like to fondle watches??? lol

    Anyway, this reminds me of when I was the first at my company to own the iPhone back in 2007 and some creepy co-worker who I didn't really know picked up my iphone off my desk and said, "This is neat, would it be okay if I took it to lunch with me for a couple hours so I can play with it and see if I want to buy one for myself?"....I grabbed it out of his hands and was like NO! lol

    Hahaha what... What a strange question to ask someone. Especially someone you don't know very well.

    Tell them you can't because your watch is covering up a wrist herpes flareup.

    I have seen people drop other people phones before and they did not have the means to replace it. Lesson learned long ago!

    A few people have asked about it whilst it's on my wrist, but nobody has requested that I take it off and let them play with it. Seems like an odd request, tbh.

    True story: my friend went to a bar with his friends and got drunk. Apparently he took off his SS 42mm BSB off to let people check it out. When he woke up the next day he was without his watch. Less than a week old.

    LOL, he was exactly like a character from SNL...alot of co-workers had odd stories about him...he was harmless though, sort of like the guy in Office Space with the red stapler.

    I'm quite happy for my mates to try it on and have a play about. What sort of crazy strange would ask to try on your watch?! If they did I wouldn't feel the need to justify saying no.

    my boss dropped my iPhone 4 when it first came out years ago..no damage occurred during the fall but since then NONE of my electronics (watch included once arrived) will be leaving my hands for someone else's viewing pleasure.

    A bit much, and if its someone you know. I have full confidence that they're going to pay for it.


    If not, I don't let them touch it. (Unless its a close friend or family)
