Wearing a Watch

I've grown away from wearing a watch every day and usually check my cell phone for the time  However, on a cruise ship, I immediately stash my phone in the nightstand until I disembark so have begun taking a watch to tell time.  I've only been on one ship that had clocks out on the deck ...

I still wear a watch everyday (special gift from my DH).  So no problem on the ship.  I do however, take a cheap watch to wear in the ports.

Ummm, most ships have a clock somewhere around the Lido.  Usually up near a bar.

I wear a watch every day.   if I don't have one on I do not feel that I'm fully dressed.  I have about 20 of them.  


I do keep a cheap watch or two to wear into port and on land trips so I'm not a target wearing a good watch.  Some times on cruises the time on my phone goes kind of nuts,  I know I can set a watch to ship time.

I wear a Fitbit Charge and it is also a watch. Before I got it I wore a cheap watch on vacations. I'm never without wearing a watch of some sort - I'd hate to be late for anything.

I am the same Debbie. I have a nice watch and I wear it only on cruises. 

I always wear a watch.  I always have my phone as well, but time-changes at sea confuse it.  It catches up in port (great international plan), but occasionally you’re instructed to stay on “ship’s time” rather than local time so the watch is still important.

Watches don't work well for me.  Something in my body chemistry... Only the cheapest Timex will be mostly reliable, and mostly reliable would be a disaster for ship's time Crying

DH wears a watch every day, and we depend on him to keep us on schedule in port and on the ship.

I use both. I like wearing a watch and since I use my phone for pictures I always have it. 

I have the Fitbit Surge, so it works as a watch, and counts my steps Big Smile
