A curious article (in Italian) about Sandy Island, off the Australian shores, present in many maps including Google's but... non existent:

article in English:

I saw something about that on BBC World yesterday, but got the impression the error originated with Google Maps....

The Italian newspaper states that "it is erroneously present on maps since at least 10 years". It is also present in "Times Atlas of the World" as "Sable Island". Google maps was launched 7 years ago.

I just wear one to see what time it is. I use my phone for all those other things. I even make phonecalls from time to time...

Those are retro watches.
I also wear the watch mostly to see the time and date, maybe also use the crono.

I don't like to take my phone out to see the time.
It's much easier with the watch, you can do it quick and easy.

Even when riding a bike

don't you have the time on your bike's speedometer It's even easier... Cars also have the time on the dashboard somewhere, of course computers have the time on the screen, digital tv also has the option to have the clock on the screen... Etc.etc. etc. So nowadays you can always know the time without having a watch.

I meant bicycle
You are almost right, that's the reason I mostly take it off at work and always at home. But I'm really used to it if I am on the street.
I also don't wear anything else, jewelry, accessory or sort.

But I don't like heavy metal watches.
I stick to light plastic/leather
