That’s one of the reasons I stayed away from digital for so long… the button. Usually when I needed the time I had a pen in one hand and a pad in the orther or was wearing gloves or using a sextant or something.
The Apple Watch is digital but lights up when I look at it… which is nice. And I like the custom analogue hands on my watch face. What I don’t like is the horrendous battery life.
We put a new Timex up on the store today that’s a really nice combination of just a few digital features I love (automatic correction, smart timers, help in finding your phone) and the analogue things I like (long battery, sweeping dials, glowing hands). We’ll see by the sales if anyone agrees with our assessment.
