Wearable hybrids prove the bloated smartwatch is one of Silly Valley's biggest mistakes

I can't be in the majority then, because I still own and wear about a dozen watches.

At work, I wear one of my mechanical analog watches, often a Vostok, when I'm out with the dogs, it's usually my Suunto. I need a waterproof watch 'cos I need to know the time when I'm out and about, and outdoors it occasionally rains (I do live in blighty after all) and pulling my phone out wouldn't be wise, as it's not waterproof. Plus there are the occasional times I try to be fit, and I run, and surf, and snowboard. Again, I don't take a phone with me on those occasions. It's a Note4, and a bit big to carry during sport, it would leave a hell of a bulge in my lycra running shorts. I'll leave you with that image.
