    My wife thinks I brought too many watches on our vacation to Orlando, Key West, and Bahamas.

    I can understand most of them, but why do you need two smart watches?

    Glad you asked. was planning to turn on “outdoor walk” workout and see how long it took to drain my new S5 LTE Apple Watch at Universal Studios and IOA, and then still have my spare S1 in case the S5 dies too soon. That test day might be tomorrow.

    The Casio is to know the cabin air pressure on the plane, in case I’m over 8000 feet pressure and need my O2 due to one working lung.

    The Seiko PADI diver is for the Bahamian beach and snorkeling, while the Luminox is the redundant one.

    The Tudor GMT is because travel, although I forgot wind it after pulling it from my safe. It will be my nice dinner watch for the next week and on the cruise ship. I chickened out bringing my Rolex ceramic Pepsi GMT II this time.

    She is thanking her lucky stars that your return trip home was prepaid! Customs must have hit you hard, I suspect.

    I could guess most of those, but not the second smart watch, or the Casio on the plane. I thought that the Casio was for sketchy areas (doesn't look expensive).

    Believe it or not, the Casio actually cost me about the same (atomic radio control) as the Seiko and Luminox combined. The Luminox looks cheaper in person but I snagged it new for $165.

    The spare Apple Watch watch is just my old one that my wife won’t take until her Series 0 Apple Watch is dead. Mine is possibly an S0 as well, but it’s an AppleCare+ replacement that I got in 2017 after my original launch day 2015 watch was destroyed in a mountain bike accident. That was a good way to get 4+ years out of my original - broke it and got a replacement that’s lasted over 2yrs (did some damage to myself and the bike too).

    I did upgrade to a Series 2 with GPS while my S0 was being replaced, so that I would not break my move record streak (then gave it to my son), and my daughter has my old S3 LTE as soon as I bought the Series 5 LTE in DLC Titanium.

    I said “brought” not “bought”.

    I haven’t left the USA yet, and my watches will all stay on the ship except what’s on my wrists when I go ashore. If needed, I can go into photos, PayPal, and Amazon to show receipts for all of them.

    Plus I have the photos from today in Orlando showing the time and date proving that I had these 2 days before we sail.

    It’s really a great watch isn’t it. I’ve had mine a couple of months now and I hardly wear any of my other watches!

    It has been a while, but have you bought something because you absolutely needed to know more about it?

    I have not yet taken the back off to have a decent look, but both balances work, but they can actually run somewhat independently - at least one can start and do a few ticks before the other one thinks about starting - and then it takes a few seconds for them to synchronise ticking ...
