Default Watches- Revisited

I looked for an older thread about what watch are you wearing and did not find it??
Point being I hate having to tote the giant I-phones we all use now into the woods, and am considering buying an "everyday use" watch.
So let's have it. What are you wearing and do you take it off for any specific reason, like gutting or ??
Another part to this is the wood watches that are now available. They sure look nice, but hopefully someone can give some first hand experience on that as well.

Casio Protrek, Triple Sensor, Atomic so you never have to set it, Titanium case & band, solar power so it never needs a battery. It also shows tide, barometer, altimeter & compass. I've had it for 3 or 4 years now and I wear it everyday.

I have a casio protrek solar atomic so it never needs batteries or be set unless you change time zones, it has all the sensors mentioned previously. I also wear a Suunto Traverse Alpha, if wanted it can be linked to your phone and act as a smart watch letting you know you have notifications. It is also a gps watch with all the sensors as well, and will let you record waypoints, etc. you can use the Suunto app on your phone to manage all of this...I really like it. The battery last approx. 7-10 days and is rechargeable obviously, if you use the gps heavily and with short tracking intervals it will significantly reduce that life.

Thanks for the posts, The G-Shock looks to be bit LARGE? Not really wanting to wear a satellite beacon on my wrist nor am I interested in being able to communicate with my phone through it. The information ya'll have provided has given me a place to start (and what not to look at), thanks.

I have a Tag.. I used to want a Rolex.. But I would rather use that money to go kill something or take my family on a trip. The older I get the more I cherish experiences over things. My phone tells me the time

I've tried my best to find a watch that will stand up to the daily abuse that I hand mine, my Tag just keeps on ticking.

Bought a new one last year, but the 20 year old one is still working just fine.

Timex Ironman Triathlon or Fitbit Versa. I wish I could afford a ROLEX or a TAG, but I would not wear it in the field.

Cheap Casio watch of Amazon that was $14.
Has excellent reviews for lasting a long time other than the band breaking eventually but that can be replaced with something stronger.
