Wearing watch while playing

    I'm a bit of a watch guy, I have Rolex, Omega, Tag pieces, along with an AppleWatch. Tried them all while golfing, and wanted to like the AppleWatch for the "fitness" and golf app capabilities, but just doesn't feel right. They always come off on the first tee, go in the bag and, hopefully if I don't forget, back on the wrist post-round.

    I have a Garmin S6 watch, used to wear it on my left wrist but it kept coming into contact with my glove which was hitting buttons and changing the screen.

    I switched it the the right and have no problems, it takes some getting use to if you've never worn a watch, but after a short time you don't even remember it's there (other than its purpose).

    Always wear a watch. ALWAYS. A man without a watch is a man without anywhere to be. A man without being needed anywhere. So of course, wear a watch while playing. Generally a leather strap on the DateJust.

    I'm a watch guy, and I play with my watch on. I'm a lefty, but wear my watch on my left wrist, so atypical of a lefty. I don't have a problem with. Heavy watches too, Omega Seamaster GMT, Rolex Sub etc.... I don't have an issue with them rubbing or bumping anything.

    I wear an Apple Watch on my left wrist and use the Hole19 app with it for yardage. Great combination and no issues.

    Garmin S1 on the left wrist, Fitbit Charge HR goes on to the right wrist when I play golf. I look like some type of operator with all the stuff on my wrists. Doesn't bother me in the least.
