Two Watches

I am on a two-watch program. 

I wear a smartwatch during business, but then - after formally closing down for the day - I put the smartwatch on the charger and switch to a ten dollar Casio wristwatch.

The switch means no more email and no more electronic interruptions. 

It is a symbolic way of declaring the division between formal work and everything else.

Michael, Michael. You can tell the phone not to send notifications to the watch in the evenings. I hate to see you taking off a marvel of modern technology for a tacky mechanical watch. Read the manual. :-)

"Unknown",

The Casio watch is actually better-looking than any of the smartwatches. In a way it is a step up.

Plus the ritual of The Changing of the Watch symbolizes the escape from the digital world.

The evil digital world.

Rick,

The high quality of the sarcasm was a dead giveaway.
