      UPDATED: MESSAGE BOARDS CLOSING AFTER DRAFT   03/08/2017

      After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards after this year's NFL Draft. Since we opened our boards a decade ago, the digital landscape has greatly evolved. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years. Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, May 5th, and will be removed on May 6th. We recognize that this change may upset avid members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets. If you are not already engaging us and other members of the Ravens Flock on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities. In addition, the commenting feature on our website articles will remain intact. Members will be able to continue using their boards account to log in and share their thoughts at the bottom of every news story. We’d like to thank all the Flock members and our moderators who have brought thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 10 years. Ravens Social Media Hub »

The Watch Thread

7 posts in this topic

So I'm not a watch junkie by any means necessary, nor do I own any too expensive, but I am looking to add some more to my collection. My budget isn't large(so I'm not gonna buy a Rolex or anything), but I might add some to my collections that are pricey, but not lavish.

 

I already have a first generation Apple Watch, and won a second one in a work function which I sold(adding about $350 to my budget). So here's what I'm looking at.

As much as I love my Apple Watch, it's not a good fitness tracker. I used to own a first generation Charge HR, but that broke in the middle of a boxing workout(cause I was stupid). I think the second generation is more durable and I would wear the Apple Watch on my left hand, and the Fitbit on my right hand. It's very accurate and I'm very pro-exercise.

 

Side question: Is it normal to wear two watches? Not sure. 

 

I'm also looking to buy one of these for my Dad's birthday. He hated a normal smartwatch and loves his old watch.

Do you think he's going to like this? I don't want one for myself(the Apple Watch will suffice) but would this be good?

 

What watches do you all own?

Not really.  Pretty rare.

I'm a big fan of disposal Timex/Walmart watches so I can't help you with the rest.  I love getting a whole new watch for less than the cost of a band, though I make exceptions for my Ravens Super Bowl XXXV watch and a few other fancier ones that were gifts.

I was thinking about the Apple Watch on my left and Fitbit on my right. Apple Watch first gen is a terrible fitness tracker.

 

Im only packing an Apple Watch. I love it but want something that can help me track fitness

I am a big fan of the Pebble watches (currently Pebble Time) 

no touchscreen = longer battery life
sleep & step tracker
works with android and iOS
a lot of Pebble specific apps

unfortunately Fitbit brought the company and cancelled the production, be quick to get one

Why are you thinking that Fitbit will ruin Pebble?

They already said the will stop the production. They just bought them to eliminate a competitor.

The prices for the watches dropped because they will stop providing Software updates during the next year
