    I am at work and some people said they will still wear their current watch and wear the Apple Watch on the other arm. Is this a little too far fetched? I am going to wear Apple Watch OR my nicer watch but not both!

    As someone who dreamed of watches as a kid, wore many Swatches at one time, and loves Swiss watches now, no way. Time will tell if the Apple Watch permanently replaces my Swiss watches, but I won't be wearing them together.

    After seeing more about the Apple Watch, I'm wondering if I'll wear my Fitbit and the Apple Watch. Not quite 2 watches, but same idea.

    I found this a while ago.

    Basically lets you wear your timepiece on top of your wrist with your :apple: watch underneath.

    I'd definitely get this but the site seems to be pretty empty and doesn't see many updates... :(

    I personally think that'd look pretty silly... My bet is that the people who do try it will immediately decide to just wear one or the other. I collect watches and I can say I will not be wearing my :apple: Watch 24/7.

    Not removing this for any other watch, not even one from Apple!

    Nope. I'll wear my Apple Watch on a day-to-day basis, but I have a nicer watch for when I need to wear a suit.

    A little different take. I will wear my Garmin Sports watch on my right while running, biking and cardio. Have been doing this for a few days to acclimate and it is a slightly difficult first word problem to me.:eek:

    That is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. I would imagine people want to wear their current watch for fashion reasons. News flash: you will look like a bozo wearing two watches.

    Yeah, I think something plain, simple and unobtrusive that looks like a simple band might be okay.

    But wearing two competing, shiny, watch-looking objects, one of which simply contains a subset of the other's functionality is hard to rationalize. Which arm do you look at to tell the time, for example? And do you really want to look like an over decorated Christmas tree? :)

    Furthermore, if you have an iPhone in your pocket (as you most likely will) do you even need an Apple watch? Why not just save the money and buy a better phone?

    Sometimes less is more.

    It is just a matter of taste and I don't want to offend you but that's one ugly Rolex.

    That watch looks so fugly. It looks like it's a transformer robot toy on your wrist.

    I'd never be caught in public with a monstrosity like that. For it's most basic purpose, the time, it's hard to see the hands with all the crap going on in that watch.

    I wear something simple like this:

    I agree yours looks simple. I guess the learning curve for mine is beyond the learning curve of some.

    I do not believe you COULD offend me so please don't worry about it.:p

    Thanks very much. I seldom wear it but I think it is nice, too!:)

    Why was necessary to say that he won't switch his Rolex for an Apple Watch?;)

    To me yes, its absurd and ultra dorky. But then again to someone with multiple nose piercings and a neck tat I probably look dorky in my blue pin stripe suit and cap toe shoes, so there is that.

    It seems that you're open to conversation on this topic. I slammed your watch, while you didn't slam mine. :)

    I'm honestly wondering, why people wear watches like you do. I wear my watch just so I can tell time. And I like something very obvious, where I can look at it for 1/10th of a second and I know the time. And I don't like a watch to say something like '7:57' - it means nothing to me.... 7:57 is really 8:00, and an analog watch shows that to me easier instead of me taking a second to calculating it. I guess like a fuel gauge in a car, I don't want a digital readout of how much gas I have, I want an analog readout to see how close to 'E'mpty I am.

    Anyways, I've never felt the need for fashion in a watch, just utilitarian use - seeing the current time. In your life, is the main purpose for the watch to be jewelry? The bigger, the blingier, the ??something?? makes it good for your style? I guess coming from a different view, I don't understand your view...

    (Nor do I understand Apple's view of charging so much for their watches!!)

    I haven't been a fan of digital watches since I was in the 8th grade a couple decades ago. But the above doesn't make any sense to me. A digital watch shows "8:57". There is no calculating involved. OTOH an analog shows a big hand near the 8 and the little hand two clicks north of the :55 notch. A human has to calculate that.

    I have a Casio G-Force watch. It's waterproof, shock proof, solar powered so it never needs winding or a new battery, atomic so it never needs adjusting for accuracy or daylight savings time, a world clock, chronograph, alarm clock... and maybe some other features I can't remember. All for 100 bucks. Truly, the best watch I ever owned.

    I also have a FitBit Flex, which I wear at the same time on my other wrist.

    I would need a third arm if I got an Apple Watch.

    And, to be honest, I have never understood who could justify spending $20,000 on a watch, like a Rolex. To each their own, I suppose. But I've lost watches in the past, and I can't imagine what I'd go through if I lost a watch that cost that much.

    I had a talk with an exec from Timex a few years ago. He had this cheapo watch on, and told me that the future was watches which cost under $10. Times (so to speak) have sure changed.
