I really like the customization options and flexibility, but unless you really need the phone tethering and the fitness options, I don’t like the idea of having another device to recharge.

I love automatic watches since they take advantage of our regular movements to keep running. Even then, quartz watches will make a battery last years.

Also, longevity is another thing - most watches can be serviced but when smart watches get old, they just become obsolete. Classic watches will always function for their main purpose - telling time at a glance. I don’t have fancy watches, but it’s nice to know that they can be worn by another generation if they’re taken care of.

Then again, I do still want a smart watch but not at the price that companies are asking for.
