    I have had my  Watch since last Wednesday and every day it passes, the less I think of it. That isn't necessarily bad, but I am still unsure if I want it in my life.
    I decided to do an experiment. I will just take off my  Watch and see how I feel about it, if I miss it at all.

    Has anybody tried to do the same?

    I just took off everything else but my Apple Watch.


    Feels good. A little breezy ...

    The Apple Watch is not necessary like the iPhone, so I am sure you could easily live without it since it just mirrors the functionality of the phone.

    My Apple Watch is off. It's somewhere in China. Hopefully it comes off the assembly line soon and then off the truck and into my house. So far I don't like having my Apple Watch off :(

    I'm quite sure I could get along just fine without it. But I enjoy it. So I'm leaving mine on.

    Let us know how that goes.
    It is very much a "background" device for me, yet after the last several weeks, it is already very integrated into my life.

    I won't be doing this experiment with you. ;)

    I just got back from a weeklong plane and road trip with the Apple Watch. I had fun doing screen shots of my Modular Watch face as I entered different locations. I saved snaps of the time, weather, and city names. These got saved along with the photos I took on my iPhone. It was a neat way to record my trip.

    I like how the Watch has eliminated most of the sounds coming from my phone, including that awfully loud vibration noise (though I wouldn't mind finding a way to turn that off even for phone calls). So I suggest going all the way and making sure to leave your phone behind as well. Feels good, very freeing.

    Actually I am missing my iPhone and I am still unsure if I want to have a watch at all.

    It makes the phone go off instead which then I have to reach for. I prefer my Apple Watch on. Believe it or not, I mostly use it to check what time it is.

    I've tried. Ended up feeling naked...

    Tried going back to my Hamilton Touch watch, once I couldn't retrieve the weather I switched back.

    I think Apple is onto something here...

    Well my wife just gave our 12year old daughter her invicta lady's watch. Since she got her 38mm SS AW, her other watches has become a thing of the past. I ask her if she is ever going to wear her other watches, And she said she tried. But her AW is just more useful to her. Still waiting on my 42mm SS AW, so i am thinking that I might do the same maybe? Will see how it goes when I get mine.

    Yes really. All these "I can't find the use for my watch. Is it worth it? Do I need it?". If you want to experiment then go ahead and tell everyone in the world about your experiences from that experiment.

    No I think I'll stay. It's so wonderful to be a part of YET another unbelievably unnecessary thread.

    I really don't know what the users and reviewers that say "You don't need it" were expecting... Of course you don't *need* it. I don't *need* an iPad, or a TV, or a gaming console, or any number of gadgets I own. But I like them and enjoy them quite a bit. Who honestly expected to find that they *need* an apple watch? I sure didn't. And I love mine. :)

    I think the verb "need" has a different meaning in the first world..

    Actually we only need water and some food and some clothes. Apart from that we don't really need anything.

    My thread is not about if people feel they need the Watch. It's about an experiment, just to see if people miss their Apple Watch at all. People that don't miss it but still like it, would keep it. People that don't care at all would probably return it and the rest would of course keep it.
    Why is it so bad to create a thread about it? At the end of the day if someone doesn't like this thread, he/she can move on elsewhere..

    I get sad when I have to take it off to charge it...

    I need it like I need my Bluetooth headset, or my iPad Mini. I need the watch like I need a watch...

    I am used to wearing a watch, so I notice not wearing one. The Apple Watch is, hands down, the coolest most useful watch I own. For that reason, I'll keep wearing it.
