I don't even understand the point of why this was manufactured in the first place.

Exactly... The Amazon Essentials line is usually a cost saver in other areas, but this really misses the mark

Well, that’s completely forgettable. “Why?” Is the appropriate response, as already noted.

The Amazon Essentials Unisex Easy to Read Silver-tone and Nylon Strap Watch.

Even the name misses the mark.

To be fair, at least this wartche has standard hands and a dial. It does not read you your emails or texts. It doesn't dim your lights or change your SiriusXM radio station. It doesn't turn on your air conditioning. It doesn't respond to voice commands. It doesn't show you a small picture of Xhampster. Apart from the last bit, it is OK, if you can't spend more than 21 bucks on a wartche.

I kind of like shit that doesn't make my life better.

I think you and I are what what watch collectors would call "purists."

Or what everyone else might call "old."
