    We tied a record in Cleveland Saturday. 88 degrees. I have found that I don't like a thing on my wrist when it's that freaking hot.
    Will my watch be retired in the Summer?

    Thoughts?

    Personal preference. I've worn a watch and worked outside all day when it was around that hot/hotter.

    I don't. Tan lines are ugly. :)

    All the more reason to keep wearing the watch.

    Actually, now that I think about it, I took it off & kept it in my pocket while working outside.

    It was more of a joke. If i'm in the sun though I know I won't be wearing a watch due to water activities.

    Excellent post @PereDroid. I was just thinking the same thing the other day when it hit 88 here also, with very high humidity. I was manning a grill and realized that I usually always take my watch off when working outside in the hot, muggy Summer months. Always have. So I will probably not wear my smart watch thus Summer when working outside. Like you, I can't stand anything hot on my wrist when its that hot outside. I'll still wear it to work and when in the house.

    Yeah. Working outside at home &/or doing fun stuff outside, I've never really worn a watch. I never wore one outside of work for quite a while either though.

    I guess I'd probably go back to the g watch if I was getting dirty working outside. Keep the Urbane looking good.

    Heat & humidity has never bothered me while wearing my watch. I guess if you're not used to wearing one it might. I've worn one since I was a teenager and most of my adult life was spent in hot humid weather, so I guess it depends on your past experience wearing a watch. I can't imagine a smartwatch being any different in that aspect.

    I'm more concerned about tan lines & getting the watch all jacked up doing yard work. Growing up in Kansas, I used to wear a watch & leather bracelets & such all year round, so the heart & humidity don't bother me.

    My watch is sitting in my lap as I read this thread while outside. Tan lines fade. Sweat dries. Electrolytes from sweat working their way inside? Direct summertime sunlight heating up the innards? I'm not real confident my watch is me proof.

    Add me to the list of not wanting a watch on my wrist when it is hot outside.

    I was going to look at changing the band to a sports band hoping that will make it more comfortable, still might, but the past few days I found myself wanting it off as my wrist was irritated.
