    Do you wear your watch only during the day while out of the house like at work and take off when at home or do you wear it throughout the day even when home? I'm asking bc I'm still in my return window and while I'm liking the watch as soon as I get home from work I take it off so I'm not sure I use it enough to justify it.

    I wear my Apple Watch all day and charge from 8pm-9pm(roughly) and then wear it to bed using Sleep Pulse 2 to track my sleep and movement and heart rate. Love that... I also use the silent alarm to wake me every morning and my wife really likes that feature since I get up before she does. I then use the watch as my workout tracker with the workout app and my fitness builder app running native. When I shower, I sometimes wear it in the shower if I am all sweaty or else I give the watch a little bump charge while I shower and get ready. Usually it is enough time to get it back to 100%. Overnight, it usually goes from 100 to 92-94% and it burns about 10-12% during my 1 hour workout.

    All in all, I typically wear the watch 20-22 hours a day. If I hit all my goals by 6pm or so, I take it off for a break, but I love the features and look, so I wear it a lot and the silent alarm and sleep tracking is well worth it.

    Wear mine from the time I get up until the time I go to sleep. Usually I have a 40% charge at the end of the day and I plug it in every evening.

    I wear mine only out of the house. once I get home from work, it goes on the charger.

    I could wear it in the house but I'm surrounded by clocks and I'm normally in front of my computer anyway when I get home.

    I still enjoy the watch and have no plan on returning or selling it.

    I take my watch off to charge it overnight but wear it the rest of the time. Ultimately I don't think whether you choose to wear the watch about the house is a decider; it's whether you'd miss it during the day. Perhaps leave it a home for a day or two while you're still in the return window and see whether you miss it?

    I wear mine from the moment I'm going to sleep till about an hour before I sleep when I recharge it.

    I think I would miss during the day. It's been years since I've worn a watch, but it took no time at all to get used to wearing one again. I've only had mine for a month or so.

    I wear mine pretty much all day long once I get up and get moving for the day. I don't have clocks everywhere in the house so find it convenient to have it on to check the time, notify me of reminders I set (even for TV shows or something else I care to know about when at home), and I like that I can also see what's coming up tomorrow. I use it to set alarms all the time. I don't carry my cellphone with me around the house so having the Watch on my wrist is great. We have a two-story house and when my phone's upstairs and I'm downstairs getting dinner etc and get a phone call on my iPhone, I take it on my Watch. I also frequently make short phone calls on it 'cause it is convenient. It's comfortable on, and my battery life is great (even better since WatchOS2 I've found), so the thought of taking it off just doesn't even occur to me until it's time to go to bed.
