The "cool" kids are wearing Nike Sports ($170) watches and Nike Fuelband ($300). I was sorry I asked.
Eaton Rapids is a town of carpenters and factory workers, electricians, dry-wallers, FedEx delivery guys, cops and firefighters. Where are these kids getting the scratch to buy $300 watches?
I showed Kubota a portfolio of watches that I considered "reasonable" kid watches. Kubota admitted he has a preference for digital watches. Good "kid" watches are easy to read, no gimmicks, abuse resistant, less than $35. Oh, and they will not look dated in five years.
Unfortunately, the kid is brain washed. It is nothing if it does not have "The Swoosh".
Oh well, it saved me $35...but now I have the hots for a new watch.
