Does it still make sense to own a watch? After all, smartphones these days do everything a watch does and more.
We say yes. In fact, the presence of smartphones means watches are more of a necessity than they’ve ever been. Here are four reasons why:
Unless your phone never leaves your hand during the day, it will always be easier to glance at your wrist instead of digging through your bag, retracing your steps, turning your phone on, or entering a password. This is especially useful when you need both hands to do time-sensitive work like cooking or various forms of manual labor.
- To Remove Distraction
How many times have you decided to check the time on your smartphone, only to put it down an hour later? Most of the content we consume on our devices like social media was designed to be addictive in order to keep us online for longer periods, but unfortunately, our productivity and attention spans suffer. Instead of checking the time and getting drawn in by the notifications on your home screen, use your watch to help keep you focused and on-task.
- To Send a Message
Powerful individuals wear watches. If you’re serious about exuding confidence and authority, walk into a room with a high-quality luxury watch on your wrist. It’s still a mark of sophistication and wealth and will get you the right kind of attention.
- Buy It for Life
Well-made watches can become a part of your family’s history. Timeless pieces are still a popular choice for heirlooms, and depending on the design, won’t fall out of style between generations.
The Àsìkò brand is taking an old-fashioned approach to new watch design by putting the focus back on you. Check out its most popular piece, Invisible, here.
