    I’m wondering if it’s just me or if it’s a common problem to be in the middle of a ridiculously good ball, only to have your left (or right wrist) start vibrating to the extent you lose the ball, mess up a good score, and want to hunt down the person that caused this by innocently calling, txt’ing, or emailing. The simple solution in theory is to take off the watch before playing but in practice, not how it works for me! What’s awesome is when it’s my kids asking for more internet time (they are at the age where the call until I answer)

    This post is meant to make fun of myself for how intense I get when playing, also to blow off a little steam as I’ll be damned if it didn’t just happen to me deep into a game of Wonka.

    Tend to agree. Really wanted to love that watch even bought a few but it just felt like a constant distraction 24/7. Add to that my phone is typically there so everything doubles up. Just went back to the simplicity of the Speedmaster and never looked back. Technology is great you just need the opportunity to walk away from it at times.

    Just wait until Elon Musk wires it right into your brain!
