Accidently left my timex weekender when I visited the range. After a bucket, I felt a good stinging where the winding knob was digging into my hand.

Never again. lol

I love their watches! Plus, being made at “home”, makes ‘em even better!

While I think watches look very cool I am not a watch wearer. The main reason being I have a cell phone always on me so I have zero need for it.

 

Are you a watch wearer or not? And what is your favorite watch?

Ive never worn a watch while on the course until recently.  With most golf courses in my area being walking only, i have kept my watch on and used some golf GPS apps to keep my yardage.  This seems to be a lot easiers and quicker than pulling out my laser for every shot.

I feel like I get distracted when I wear a watch on my wrist during a golf round. It's hard to describe but its a feel thing and definitely more mental than anything but it just doesn't feel right. So no I don't wear a watch when I play golf, but I wear a watch almost any other time.

I've been wearing the same watch for nearly 15 years, picked up two off them this year though to bring into rotation eventually. One given by my girlfriend's sister and husband that I'll likely only ever wear when we're going to see them, and one as a gift for being in my friend's wedding in February. Also have a pocket watch that I plan on busting out for important trials and court appearances if I ever go back to criminal court.

I wear a watch 95% of the time and yes I wear it while playing golf. It actually feels weird to me to not have one on. I wear an Apple watch most of the time and I have a Bulova that I wear when I have to get "dressed up".

Not a watch wearer, so I was beside myself when my wife gifted me a Garmin X10 instead of a handheld gps like I had wanted. Two rounds in and tbh I love it, the design is thin enough to not bother me. But it also performs all the basic functions I wanted in a hand held. The limited features probably he’ll make it less distracting too. I usually only play my home course but I’m rarely in the middle of the fairway, and having the yardage to the front and back of greens helps with club selection. Another added feature, you can’t forget it in the cart after your round 😉

And though this thread isn't specifically about golf, thinking about watches made me recall this post from Andrew Rice on the effect of wearing a watch on the course: https://www.andrewricegolf.com/andrew-rice-golf/2012/09/when-you-play-watch-or-no-watch. This test showed a noticeable effect on swing speed.

Thanks for posting that - I wear a GPS watch on the course (but no watch off the course) and now I have a legit 😆 excuse for my tee shots...

I have only one watch and wear it pretty much every day.  I don't wear it playing golf.

I dont wear a watch since I carry a cell phone. I wore a fit bit watch for a while but I got away from that. I want to try a golf GPS watch this season. I dont know how that will work out. Always hated playing golf with a watch on back in the day.

I used to wear traditional watches, and would always take them off when I played golf. I then got a Fitbit for the activity/heart rate functionality and got used to wearing it while golfing. However, the Fitbit didn't offer any golf features, and I missed the traditional style watches, so I'm now wearing a Garmin VivoActive 4. It really didn't take any extra time to get used to golfing with it on after switching from the fitbit (even though it was significantly larger), and now I get all the activity/hr features, golf GPS, and a more traditional style (I also put a stainless steel link band on it). This watch stays on all day everyday except for showers and charging 🙂.

I caved and bought an Apple Watch series 5 last month.  I've owned watches but I've never been a die-hard watch wearer or lover.

One month in and I love it.  I never thought I would want or need one and frankly I've seen several positives.  First and foremost, I am no longer tethered to my phone.  The cellular watch gives me the necessary updates and allows me to stream music while I work out.  If you're on the fence and are considering one, PM me so I don't bore the world with an unsolicited review.

No watch for me while playing testing shows it will slow down your swing speed. I need all the speed I can get.

I've always worn a watch on my left wrist and I'm a right hand player.  Never been an issue for me.  I just acquired a Shotscope V2 and at first thought it might be a wee big, but actually it works and feels great.
