I don't love talking to my electronics, but when it works, "siri two minutes" is dramatically more convenient than whatever bullshit you'd do with tiny buttons on a Casio whatever in the 80s. I do agree with the sentiment, but ... we're pretty spoiled.

i personally dont agree it's dramatically more convenient. first and foremost, I don't have to say anything to my wrist. it works when it's loud around me and it doesn't get it wrong sometimes. it doesn't die on me and it doesn't bother me with messages from work. a few button presses are not dramatically more inconvenient bullshit imo. I don't even need to look to do it anymore. my phone can also hear and respond to me from my pocket. I can just ask my phone. just my perspective. I respected your method until you said mine was bullshit.

yes, you said what I do is bullshit and I responded as to why it's not. do you always just provoke people and accuse them of being not ok once they respond?

I'm sorry my words upset you; 'bullshit' was meant broadly, referencing my general experience with watches in the 80s—like a synecdoche, where a part stands for the whole. It wasn’t aimed at anyone personally.

I love my G-Shock watch. Practically invincible, can drop it from a building or go swimming with it, charges by solar panels and never dies, syncs with atomic clock towers by radio waves (no need for NTP!). I can set alarms, timers, stopwatches across timezones. It has dates stored locally until 2099 and it just cost $100. Smart watches may be more convenient for you, but imo the Casio is a better value and won't ever need to be replaced within 5 years because it doesn't get software updates
