One of the ‘faces’ on my Apple Watch, is an animated Mickey Mouse. His hands point to the time, and when you tap the screen he tells you what time it is with his voice. It’s great.

Touring on a bicycle is a great way to explore and appreciate the countryside and towns you pass through. What do you do to make a difference?

Hi guys, When we think "Micky Mouse Watch" around here it usually means seeing Everton first team getting thrashed by Liverpool Boys :oops: :oops: :oops: :D TTFN MM

I like watches, why should I have just 1? I have 4 bikes......at one time I had over a 100 watches but am now down to 10, 9 automatic & 1 quartz that I use at work. I do have another Casio radio controlled one that I use as an alarm clock and to set the others by. I would never go out out in a crappy pair of shoes or a Primark item of clothing so why would I wear a crappy watch? I notice crappy shoes and watches and it's not something that you can't deal with easily, for sub £100.

N Minus One?
I have almost never used a watch, was given one as a teenager I think and once later,seems unnecessary, alien to me somehow

Time for another poll maybe :?
3 cycles
0 watches
dozens of books

I bike, 2 watches (one I've had for 40 years, one I received when I retired), an 18/19 year old bike, hundreds of books - well over 1,000.
