Has Your Cellphone Replaced Your Watch?
According to the San Diego Union Tribute, the sale of wrist watches has declined 25% between 2003 and 2005 because people started using their mobile phone as their time telling device of choice.
This is an interesting concept. I love watches. I have a Superman (surprise surprise) limited edition watch. My wife bought it for me a few years back and I can honestly say I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I actually use it too. It’s closer to me than my pocket where my cellphone resides. I will say that in order to get the exact time, I do look to my cell for the answer. Sometimes I don’t trust my watch, after all I am the one who set it. So if I am on my way to work, or a meeting or what have you, I always double check the cell. I guess it allows me to know exactly how much time I have, or how late I am.
What about you guys? Do you use the cell or the watch? Is the cell replacing the watch, or watches were out of style a long time ago and the cell has kept you from wondering or asking a stranger.
