    Hey, I use a pocket watch, you insensitive clod!

    These look cute and handy, with a lot of fun uses for them especially for kids and I like the idea but…

    How many people still wear wrist watches?  My husband and I use our cell phones for time and have pretty much abandoned our wristwatches entirely.   (I also use my cell phone for small reminders).    I miss my wristwatch but (apparently) not enough to replace the dead battery and it remains, just a piece of unused jewelery.

      I don’t think wearing a wrist watch is a prerequisite for finding these useful. If you’ve got something on your wrist you’re going to be mindful of it.  And in fact, if you’re not a usual watch wearer, a post it strapped to your wrist will be difficult to ignore.

      Anybody who wants to be taken even remotely seriously in the business world. Whipping out your cell phone just doesn’t cut it at a job where wearing proper business attire is expected.

      I still wear a wristwatch.  Aside from the fact that it’s a sexy accessory it also doubles as a compass if the sun is out and most importantly, doesn’t drain the battery looking for a signal when I’m at work (inside a metal structure).  As for the battery thing, if you are looking into a wristwatch check out Citizen’s line of EcoDrive watches; they never need batteries.  I’ve been wearing one for a little over a year and really like it.

      A watch is really the only legitimate piece of jewelry/decoration a man can wear (especially if they don’t need glasses, like me). It can really pull your look together (even if you wear the same watch no matter the outfit).

      I could never get used to checking the time on my phone… too much work! Plus, my analog watch has an analog stopwatch/timer which is both cool and sometimes very useful. Again, something my phone could do… but not as simply and elegantly and as easy to access.

        If you have some desperate need to prove your legitimacy. The rest of us will remain decked in bangles and nose rings while you work on that.

      I were one so much so that I have a tan line. And, I just turned 22 on the thirteenth. I’m used to it because I can’t look at my cell phone all the time since I can’t have the thing on me all the time. I do feel for you about your old watch. I usually just by a new watch rather than buying a new battery.

    This is a fantastic idea! I have difficulty remembering anything I’m supposed to do or pick up at the store. This would spare my hands and arms from being scribbled all over, as I normally do, then I won’t have to look like a walking sketch book of a blind, alcoholic tattoo artist.

    Oh goodie, someone has invented the “WATCH-IT”!

    Cute way?  I call this genius.  I write myself lots of notes because so much goes on in my head that I lose track of the necessary and the mundane.  Such is the life of one with his head in the clouds, but give me a break.  Classical guitar gigs for extra income (not to mention the constant practice),  commercial art as a living and math as a hobby often leaves me forgetting to buy toilet paper and dish soap when I hit the supermarket after work.  It isn’t often that a new product comes along that truly enhances the quality of life, but I can see that this one is such to me.  I’m putting in an order as soon as I can, and this will be especially effective for me as I don’t wear watches.

    Edit: Ah hell. My French is rusty and I don’t have Euros. Paypal currency conversion?

    I prefer just the regular square ones. They fit on your iPad or Smart phone better.

    Mysteriously, no matter how erroneous the text written on this “watch,” it’s right twice a day.

  8. This isn’t going to make me stop writing stuff on my hand.  Just for the record.

  9. I’d probably knock it off somehow and not notice.
