Cell phone as your watch

Every time I was typing a little piece for this blog or just conducting any other type of activity that involved my keyboard, I found myself removing my wristwatch. So over the last couple of months I conducted a little experiment of my own, leaving my watch at home and using my phone as my timepiece for every day use. Having always been a bit of a watch fanatic myself (especially the Seiko Kinetic range) I was surprised to learn how quickly I adjusted and that I found myself not missing my watch at all.

And I'm not alone in this. According to this piece over at CNN, more and more people use their mobile phones as timepieces. Watches have become more of a fashion statement then a necessity for knowing time.
