I don't really mess around a lot with my iPhone (5C, about 17 months since initial activation); despite having about 20 different third-party apps installed, the things I do most with my phone are: chatting on messaging apps, surfing the Net, checking and conversing in forums, adding to MyFitnessPal, syncing my running watch. Now, I work freelance and there are times I may get work at a moment's notice, or a client wants to get in touch with me ASAP to talk about something. However, I don't really have the habit of holding onto my phone or keeping it on the desk when I'm seated; the times I play around with my phone are usually in public transit. So the phone tends to stay in my pants pocket, or a phone compartment on my backpack. As a result, there were times I've responded to a text or a missed call a bit too late. I also have never enabled sound mode; it's always vibration because I don't want to be a bother to others with a shrill ringtone. So to combat this, I've taken to carrying my phone around physically on my hand. In the cold, I just tuck my hands into my jacket while having a death grip on the phone, and these days, I just swing my hands while having a death grip on the phone. Just today, however, I found this to be a problem; due to years of bad posture, my neutral stance is a bit skewed to the right. My doctor told me that one thing I should do right away is to always walk (or run) while holding nothing in either hand. Not even anything lightweight. So that leaves me in a bit of a quandary. I'd still like to be able to receive calls and texts in a timely manner, but I can't hold onto my phone, and while I'm walking, there's no way I can feel vibrations. Yet, enabling sound makes me uncomfortable. Should I put up with this discomfort and just turn on all sound, or do you feel that etiquette and notifications alone are worth the Watch?
