That's why I don't wear a watch.

Well, that and I'm lazy.

Of those who still wear watches, who wears it on their primary hand? I've always seem watches on the off hand, the one that won't be keying in the PIN.

The article specifically describes how it's not, in fact, impractical.

But hey keep believing that if you'd like! The ATM thieves depend on that in fact....

I used to wear one all the time...then it broke and I've just never gotten around to buying another one. I understand that cell phones/smart phones have done real damage to the watch industry; hate to think I've inadvertently been a part of that.

Also not aware of anyone doing it. As noted above and in the comments no one wears watch on that hand. Anyway if someone had my PIN wtf would they do with it? Who really cares?
