Honestly the only reason I even get excited about exercising is because it feels like I’m grinding XP to level up my health stats. The gamification of exercise is 100% the reason I engage with it, and feeling and being healthier is a welcome side-effect. I am legit annoyed with the watch doesn’t measure my efforts, to the point where I will probably try and go on another 3km walk just so it records it better! So in a way, the watch wins, I guess.
Who even wears watches anymore? I mean, i know that in a year, once everyone has apple watches, i can expect to see more of them, but honestly I haven’t worn a watch since I got a cell phone. My grandparents got me this really nice watch for my graduation that I wear on special occasions, but i can’t remember the last time I looked at my wrist to tell the time.
I am a punctual person. …for the most part. If it is a work thing, I am punctual. If it is anything else… not so much. I gotta work on that.
I’ve always wanted to know the difference between a watch and a timepiece. best as I can tell, most people don’t really differentiate. I found one guy who said the difference is that a timepiece is heirloom quality timelessness, a watch that will always be in style. That sounds kind of pretentious to me, though i kind of like it, which makes me kind of pretentious, which i might be ok with, if I had a super awesome watch. i mean timepiece.
I needed a solution, which is why i’ve taken to calling watches TIME MACHINES. it’s one step better than a watch, but not as pretentious as calling them timepieces. EVERYONE WINS. Except for people that care about time travel. which also kind of happens to be me.
